Almost forgot to look at the kite
Kite looks great too. Keep us informed.
Also really like the graphics... NONE!
Paradise is a state of mind, right. Not everyone finds it in Hawaii. But I'm sure happy that I did.Tiago1973 wrote:nice!
how´s living in paradise?
Hard for me to speak to the advantages. Rider preference is a subjective thing. I will say that I think twist and weight are key elements for certain performance characteristics.world_kite_addict wrote:Cool looking Kite, cool looking board... definitely fitting for the Maui lifestyle.
Is the kite just for the fun of it or are there serious advantages?

Thanks iblocalsurfer. (Is it getting old, me thanking everyone, one at a time? If you take the time to post stoke, the least I can do is thank you for it, right?)iblocalsurfer wrote:Enjoyed watching your clip. Also like the Jack J. in the backround. Nice relaxing change
You've touched on a ton of stuff there:ronnie wrote:Hi,boardriding maui wrote:Hi Ronnie. I agree that 3 line could be interesting. I've been spending a lot of time with all kinds of bridle configurations. Some leaning toward 3 line concepts really slow down the responsiveness. Was a surprise to me. The geometry of this design is pretty unusual, so seems like it follows some different rules. I'm still exploring and learning.
About the canopy, nothing has been added to stiffen it anywhere. Before I began testing this concept I had no idea what to expect and guessed it may not work at all. To the contrary. Many interesting potential advantages. I think the fact that it is not stiff really allows the kite to twist and respond to all input. She's super fast. I'm stoked.
I was actually meaning that your 4 line kite bridle looked a bit like the Cabrinha IDS bridle, so was wondering if you flagged it by letting one end of the powerline run up to where the pulley is at the bottom of the front lines.
I like the simplicity of it and its good news if it works and doesn't have any serious drawbacks.
I think there is a lot yet to be investigated in kite design.
It could be that it will work as a light wind kite.
One thing I would like to see someone develop is a kite that relaunches in the lightest of wind from directly downwind by being held in the same position as it would be overhead and keeping the best angle of attack all the way up through the centre of the window.
So is the canopy aerofoil shape or flat and if aerofoil does it depower in a stable way?
I would have thought the kite would be designed to sit back in the window a bit to keep the canopy under tension.
Thanks for the stoke Rich!richswing wrote:Love the concept, when will they come on the market and for how much?
Unless, you need further testers, seasons nearly starting in WesternAustralia
How would that kite handle in the waves?
