Sad to see the name just traded. I just have the memories of the really early days when there was just Wipika. Hope they make the best out of it.

Not going to be easy, you will need some really good ideas to bring this brand back up. Sure not impossible :idea:

First kitesurfing kite I saw close up was a Wipika ... it was flying backwards at the time in messed up gusty conditions - the guy eventually got out on it but had to be rescued by the boat :D

The Wipika Airblast 8.4 2001 is certainly a hall of fame kite. I have a relatively crispy one stashed away. Haven't ridden it in 7 or 8 years. It would be interesting to pull it out again to see if my recollection of titanic leaps is based in reality.
