Quad-line Stunt Kites

I’ve been flying multi-line stunt kites since 1979 with a 15 year hiatus in the mid-1990’s. I made the switch to flying quad line kites around 2005 and they are now all I fly.

My bag currently has 8 kites in it, with wingspans from 3 to 8 feet. My favorite models are from a family owned company in SoCal called Revolution.

Here’s a trick with my 1st Revolution EXP.


I mastered it after seeing it performed by expert pilot John Baressi. It took me quite a bit of time getting very frustrated and then studying his videos to figure out he was using very short lines (30′ vs typical 65′), although he has performed the trick at least once using 120′ lines.
