Thanks.

Yeah...I own a Velocity 9m and it's NOWHERE NEAR competitive with a modern foil kite, like...at all. I won't say it's impossible to build one that is, but given the huge swing and a miss Cabrinha just made with their Double Agent foil I'll just wait until it's out on the water winning races ;-)

Waiting for a Cabrinha race kite is like waiting for a Kia sports car.

The velocity? 40 knots would be way too much for me, and I don't really get 40kt days here unless it's a dangerous thunder storm or hurricane/depression.

Come on that is a bit harsh. I am sure they will put a checkered pattern on it.:-)
