I bought a Trilby in 1989 followed by a couple of other dual line kites (Team Hawaiian, 6′ Flexifoil).

Got my first Rev 1 in early January of ’91. The same day was out in a snow suit, in a snow storm, trying to lay out 4 lines… been flying them ever since (just not usually in snow storms).

Started stacking Revs in ’98 or ’99.

Sometime early 2001 or 2, we saw a picture of a Rajah Brookes birdwing butterfly and knew it would look amazing on a Rev. However, it wasn’t until 2005 that we started painting ripstop (mostly because my 5 stack of factory Rev 1’s was more patch than original sail and needed to be replaced).

The next ‘logical’ step was a multi colored ‘birdwing stack’ which we built in mid 2008. With the exception of a recent love affair with some blue and white ghost kites (see video below), I’m a Rev stack addict and expect I will remain so.
