Saw this beauty in the Zeeko Fuerteventura Video and the gear guide.

Anybody knows some details like pricing or when its out?

Could be a great kite if its anywhere near Zeekos Hydrofoil products.

This is the only information there is at the moment.
A full race kite, no (foil} beginner kite as I understand. Quite high AR too.

Dear Macisback,

thank you for your interest.

We are developping cell kites since 2 years, and we are still learning how to design the best product.
At this steps, I'm not 100% satisfied about the prototypes I ride, I need more time to develop it.

It is on its way, hope to have it for next year, but until I'm not 200% happy with the kite, we will not release it on the market

Ride easy
Nicolas

Thanks Nicolas!

Well, take your time and make sure its a real killer kite!
If it is comparable with a R1 or Sonic or Elf, with your more moderate price level it will rock the market, just like your hydrofoil products do now!

Obviously you need Kitetwitspert to tell you what your doing wrong. Any kite that is designed by anyone ,and I mean anyone, he can offer you comments on what is wrong with it. If you put him in charge of production too, you'll also never need to worry about quality problems because apparently we have laser cutters now ,and well because of that, quality issues just aren't possible. I hear he also knows how to build a rocket to mars, end world hunger and create peace forever. His screen name is actually just a cover he is really the second coming of Christ, Buddha, Mohamhamham.ed and that crazy guy that drank the koolaid with another bunch of crazies. but seriously PM him it shall be enthralling. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
