Yes I did - as SOLID is located just few kilometers from my home lake. Looks like on their homepage and works properly - I´ve seen it in action ! Unfortunately those guys weren´t prepared for the demand, they´re more a small dedicated custom board loft. Hope they´ll licence some bigger b...

sorry, but you missed the point !! Silke not having a quick-release is the one thing, the guy letting go the kite without safety leash the other ! It was HIS Kite hitting her. You "Pros" haven´t yet understood the safety discussion at all and that´s why we all will experience hard measures of ...
