The kites look great, but html code doesn't work in posts, it'd be a huge security hole...

Sure looks like it to me, one-handed, riding goofy (that's the real clue) throwing buckets...

Ollie,
Ya it was me, I had so much fun!! I was working on riding unhooked in the waves.. Got to the point where I could get frontside air grabs off the waves (YES there are waves in LV!) land back in the wave and crack another one, one handed/unhoooked.
Anyway- The RPM is a super smooth version of the Fuel or a snappy version of the Rev. The loops are Awesome pulling all the way around.. Your gonna LOVE IT!!
THere are lots of bar pressure/turning adjustment points to tune the feel just right- and the kite simply MUNCHES gusts! People were complaining about the gusts but all I felt was everything getting bigger! THis kites got some loft also, I guess the flatter-C profile toped with the fuller wing tips gives this kite some major lift- What ever they did, I works!!
The only weird looking part about the kite is the bridle, it's got these double-pully thingies, seemed pretty strange with an extra pully.. I looked it over closely and tryied to figure out how it might help- all I could figure was it had something to do with giving the kite it's super smooth feel.
Enjoy,
L.M.G.

Yeah, that's a great shot of you there. Looking forward to trying the rpm's. Are considering getting any new kites, and if so, would they be rpm's? The way you describe it makes it sound pretty special...
