I know Peter Betancout does custom revs (he of the Tribal applique fame and maker of a number of 'bad taste' applique submisions). Looks like top quality work but I think it costs top quality money and I don't think they are made all that quickly.

You could make one yourself - the Rev sail is pretty simplistic and I believe you can do without the venting to the LE if it all seems a bit difficult; otherwise, I'm out of ideas - sorry.

Have a go at making one yourself. They're not the most difficult kite in the world to make.

Making one a little bit oversize and framing with P400 seems to work well.
