rev instructional dvd needed


anyone have an extra rev training dvd for sale? it looks like i'll be picking up a freilein exodus very soon as a gift for my brother.
we only have foil experience and know nothing about this kite type.
is all of the info on the rev dvd available on youtube? i've seen some vids there but didn't really pay much attention to the content.
the kite will be coming from Jon and Marieanne Trennepohl's shop in michigan. at the moment, i think that this is the only rev-type kite that they have for sale. otherwise i'd go for a vertigo, as per riffclown's prior recommendation.

  1. Beginner tutorials are free on the Kitelife website (John Barresi). Intermediate and Advanced tutorials are by subscription.
    http://kitelife.com/video-tutorials/#index

  2. Bill & Kim Taylor put together a PDF (118 pages) called "Flying The Rev And How To Do It." It can be found here:
    https://rpx.be/rafolution/ewExternalFiles/Revbook.pdf

  3. Revolution has a list and description of all the basic moves here:
    http://revkites.net/learn-to-fly/revolution-techniques

  4. The online version of the Revolution Training DVD can be found here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVex_RpO9dk&feature=yout...

  5. That covers basics. The Revolution Advanced Flying DVD can be found for sale ($12) over on the Kite Connection website.


ATB,
Sam

There is plenty of help for new quad sport wing fliers on KiteLife. There is a large active group there eager to answer any questions. The typical advice for a new flier is to try and connect with an experienced flier to help overcome the initial learning curve. I did not have access to any help when I began & it took me a couple sessions to get going. The Rev forum is not too active these days but a bunch of reading there can also be of assistance. The major clue I would give a beginner is to steer with your brakes. This type of kite is very sensitive to inputs responding quickly. Remember to use small movements on the handles. Your quad foil experience will be useful no doubt. Much more can be said but mostly I say go for it. SHBKF

KiteLife is a great place to watch some free tutorials on flying the Rev.. http://kitelife.com/video-tutorials/
Check out kitelife's youtube page for some additional info on Rev tutorials.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ9acIB-sWM


Bottom line, let me know if you don't find what you are looking for.. I'll get you a DVD, BUT you'll get more out of the kitelife tutorials.. the Rev DVD's are more like quick basics and long advertisements..




Lots of two line stuff including a 9 stack of HQ Boleros
HQ Symphony 2.2.4!
Skydog SDT 2.8
HQ Crossfire II 2.0, 3.0 & 4.0
HQ Toxic 8.0
Flexifoil Bullet 4.5
PL Hornet 2.0

Before you ask, What kite Should I buy?

just discovered that a guy i've known for a few years as a bike mechanic is also a pretty darn good flyer. he's going to build me a kite and i'll be taking lessons from him.
he LOVES the symphony 2.2.4 that you gave to him.
brett marchel happens to be that guy and speaks very highly of you.

I am honored to read this.. Thank you for closing that loop.. Modded, the Symphony is hard to beat for learning quadline.. It still flies like a dual and steps up to the quad world pretty readily. Please pass on to Brett that some Symphony video is still desired! I really want to see what others are doing with this special little foil..

If the wind ever blows, I will be trying out my (just finished?) Symphony 2.2.4 from riffclown's plans as well. ;)
