Italiens. Those are people who are in Italy illegally, right? ;)

Not poking fun - it just struck me as a funny play on speeling.

I saw the latest RRD perform in Cumbuco...they look very nice.
Now if Simone was responsible for the design, and he starts or works for a new brand, I expect it to be awesome kites...it will be interesting!

Keep an eye on http://www.kiteforum.com then you will know first...

As a teamrider for RRD I have been working with Simone for two years on product specs and am a huge fan of his work, dedication and translation of team input to valid improvements. I'm sad to se him venture of, but confident that he will use his skills to benefint the sport and keep bringing killer products to the market weather he should choose to do it under his own name/brand, working for some of the big firms or in any other way.

Good Luck my Friend!

Simo's the man and has the skills. You can be sure whatever he does it will be a quality product worth checking out. Keep your eyes open. :wink:

What do you know?

Bet North, Naish or Slingshot hires him. They could all benefit from his knowledge about how to make a high performance flat kite and those brands could facilitate his talent and skills.

Think I'll follow his designs - who knows what I'll be riding next year?
