Hi,
a new release of the GO is available on Github: Version 1.1
The kite is flying great, we had lots of fun with it during our holiday in Sri Lanka. You can find some more pics on my homepage.
The release contains changes I made after testing version 1.0. intensively during the last weeks.

Changes:
  • More 3D shape (curvature) in the first 3 sail segments for a more rounded shape and less wrinkles
  • Changed bridle line length for less bar pressure and better steering
  • Implemented the bladder calculation into my kite design software so that all bladders and valve positions are included in the DXF

I received a really nice North Kiteboarding 2016 book from a recent purchase and in the book they expand the kite components to show the details/quality of the build. Check it out...

I made a great strutless kite, I don't plan on going into production with it, so I may release a 12m plan for people to have fun with, they are so much easier to make than strutted kites

Hi,
great idea! Your strutless kite looks very good in the video (even though a bit blurry :-))
And I saw your new Griffin ArgoX Kite on your homepage. I really like the idea of changing the kite characteristics by replacing some of the bridle lines.
Unfortunatey I haven't seen one of your kites over here in europe.

Best regards
PanTau

I would love to get some dealers in EU and USA, I have a dealer in France and getting awesome reviews, when designing kites, you realize once the kite is right, the bridle can be 80% of how the kite flys/performs. So i designed a great kite for beginners to intermediate and a simple bridle mod for pro riders who want a fast agile kite. Beginners and cruisers don't want a fast kite, and some riders want a fast agile kite, so didn't want to make 2 different kites, so i made one kite that does both, and it works well.

I got great reviews on the strutless also, easy relaunch, great wind range, short pulleyless bridle, but I am not seeing many strutless kites around, so won't go into production.

I also designed a strutless kite, with attachable struts wth a clever velcro system, so you can have a strutless, 1 strut, 2 strut or 3 strut kite, by adding struts. Kite worked great, but I did not want to go into production with it, now the idea is out there, some other kite company may bring it out as the next original game changer idea. Unless its been done before somewhere I don't know about, I can assume I came up with the idea. Only downside is its not 1 pump.
