I was kiting with 5 other people last year in 15knt onshore wind and badest looking black clouds I've ever seen, a squall hit at 45-50knots. People on the beach saw water spouts out the back and one of the boys at 100ft in the air. I don't know how high I went but water felt like cement when I hit i...

Thanks everyone for the tips. I tend to agree that it's in the setup. I kited with another wipika 2002 owner the other day and his kite was sweet, didn't seem to jellyfish at all. He had the locking system on the chicken loop, so it's probaly me moving the bar too much. It's the same system I ran on...

should be available at your local dealer.
It's funny the bar is about the only thing

Good Luck.

The shelf life of these kites seems to be about 6 months, which is pretty bad. Okay it was there first year , should I by a 2002, I think ...

Just puchased this kite had a couple of goes in light wind and it seemed ok. I removed the bridle and it flew about the same with out the really light feel to the bar. I've just had a kite in about 16knts and it flew like a pig, it wouldn't hold its shape, the leading edge was pumped up solid. It wa...
