Hai out there,

the SPIDER has left its web.

Finally it is patented !!!

Everyone who is interested can visit my homepage to see the first pics.

Click on the Spider to go directly to the SPIDER-Bar or click the red profile to start with a shop view.

Hope you enjoy my site. It is not finished yet, but I am working hard.

It depends on the german dealers.

I will contact some german dealers I want to cooperate with the next time. I will also try to be present on some future kite exhibitions and events to promote the SPIDER.

If you want it, you can order it directly from paraflysurf.ch via email.

There will be two versions of the SPIDER bar.

- SPIDER-CARBON and
- SPIDER-CARBON-AUTOMATIK

The SPIDER-CARBON bar has all the handling advantages of the SPIDER-CARBON-AUTOMATIK but there is no automatik Safety system.

With the SPIDER CARBON bar you can easily overbreak the kite into Full Stall and so you have a manual safety function. You dont even have to do the "short reset", you can directly go on flying after an emergency "shut off".
Just push the bar away and the kite starts alone.
Of course the SPIDER-CARBON-AUTOMATIK has this option too.

For more info contact mm@paraflysurf.ch

I will take you in my maillist and you will always be informed when there is something new. ( dont be afraid to give me your mail adress, I dont sell washing machines )

Greetings

Manfred

The JOJO Rage is my favourite Soft-Surf-kite.

It is based on the design of the JOJO-RM.

They changed some smaller details, for example the angle of air attack to make it more stable and less aggrssive than the RM and I think they did a good job.

I tried the Rage in CAP VERDE. It is very powerful, stable and though the AR is very high, has a good turnrate. The RAGE is normaly used as a 2-liner. It comes with a third safety line to full stall the kite and a depower system that changes the profile. To have a high turn rate they use a power steering system that automatically activates flaps on the side you want to turn to. The leading edge is closed and has 6 intake valves. Two of the inlet valves can be turned inside out to make it easier to deflate the kite. There are 2 bigger and 2 smaller zippers to support deflation and to take out sand and dirt.
The quality of this kite is the highest standard. Must be why JOJO also manufactures paragliders and parachutes.

This kite is a really good choice and after a modification to use it with the SPIDER bar it is a dream.

But I can only tell you my impressions.

You can see pictures on my homepage under :
