Steve's bio from iQuad:
Steve has been involved in all aspects of kite flying for well over twenty years, over half of that with Revolution kites. He’s also spent a number of years in the power kite flying arena – kite buggying, kite surfing and mountain boarding. If there were any other avenues of kiting that Steve COULD be involved in, rest assured, we would see him out there doing it.
From the very beginning of this addicting sport, Steve was involved in single line and dual-line kites. Now, back in full force and flying Rev kites, Steve has joined the International quad-line team, iQuad. With iQuad, his enjoyment primarily comes from watching new fliers come out and try this wonderful sport. Steve has only competed once during his kiting career and decided early on that rather than compete, the enjoyment he gets from flying Rev kites was more, “what more can I do with my kite?”, and no concern for “points”.
The adrenaline rush of a ‘Cirque du Soleil’ approach to kite flying is what makes this sport truly challenging (and fun!). Steve is one of the very few people who can fly TWO Rev kites at the same time. We’ll do the math for you here — that’s TWO quad-line kites, FOUR handles and EIGHT lines. Most of us can barely fly ONE quad-line kite, and the prospect of flying two is completely out of the question. Steve does it as if he’s been doing it his whole life. Amazing.

Kia Ora fellow Kiters ,
Picked the box up at the P.O. after voting, ate lunch, did a short town walk and then off to Yett Memorial Park.
Parked in the shade under our tree, wind is from the SSW at 8 to 10 Kts, sky is cloudless but with a haze taking the deep blue out of the normal clear blue we normally enjoy (humids).
Unboxed, unsleeved, unrolled, assembled, adjusted bow, attached line,walked out line a good seventy feet, let go and it climbed right up into the Texas sky like it was born there .
The kite is excellent, materials, design, craftsmanship!
The kite is well mannered and wants to fly!
A fine figure of a Texas Kite she is, a pleasure to a mans eye!
Thank you both so very much for all your efforts on our behalf, we love it.
P.S. Fits just right across the back of the cab with about two inches on each side, perfect!
