Bored With The "Other" Type Of Kites

chilese:

A common statement on the Rev Forum when dual-line kites are mentioned

goes something like:

"I can only fly dualies for a few minutes. Really, how long can you
 fly loops before getting bored?"

Conversely, we dual-line fliers are guilty of discrimination on the fun of

flying 4-line kites:

"Sure, anyone can fly a kite with instant pitch control. That's why you
 people can fly without moving your feet."

I'm sure there are variations in these statements, but you get the idea.

I'll fly a Rev when the winds are over 10 mph. But even then I prefer to

"fly" the SLE Rev as a kite, (love dive stops), as opposed to perfecting

holding it still in any wind at any attitude.

Dualies are the airplanes, Quads are the helicopters.

I guess we should just love all kites.  :)

Me: Over 100 dualies, 2 Revs (master of none)

Happy New Year first thread.

Rev's are kites with training wheels.

Kites are a good excuse for middle-aged dudes to wave their arms around in public.

Add a few tip wraps and you also get middle-aged dudes walking back and for talking to themselves.  :D

I'll be living that statement in a couple months :P.  Seriously though take out a rev and get a bit more aggressive with the inputs to make for a faster harder rev style and its actually a lot of fun. Part of the reason I like the SLE in 10+ is the speed you can do things in with more control than the sonic.

The hikers say, "You have to hike your own hike."  I want to do it all.  Bored? get a power kite, that will get your attention.
