Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Can anyone identify the pilot?



Reliable word has it that he's spending as much time on that kite as he is on his duals these days.  Grin

He sent me this pic a couple months ago, really made my day.

Too cool.

Hmm ... one of those French guys no doubt.   Wink

Goes to show you that even the best dual line pilots can be lured over to the dark side ... oh, mon dieu!

*ding ding*

Prize goes to Bill!

Steve had it too, but he was a good sport, being our forum padre here. Wink

They're working on Rev team stuff too, not gone "live" yet, but it's in the works.

Richard is arguably the top dual line pilot in the world, pound for pound... They're still his primary focus, but with our activities and discussions amongst the Red Bull team members, nearly all the pilots have begun to balance their skill set between dual and quad (except for Mathieu).

I'm not implying a dark side eclipse here, just half way. Wink

Hrm, might take my Sea Devil, Jump and Shiva out for a spin today!

I could vent that for him. Soldering iron is still warm.  Cool

While the initial shock of the image is a good one, it's not that surprising. 

If I ever get to the level of Richard on my dual-line kites, I might conceivably be in the market for four lines, too.  (In other words, not in this lifetime.)

@ rc_dude - I'm probably going to check with Richard to see if he has an extra one I can buy, all "debrayed" to the hilt... Thanks though. Wink

imo, the coolest thing about revs is how it's so easy to have an informal group fly
it's a real nice change from flying all by yourself with a dual liner
