That's right ( SOL is my nickname ) :D

Last year I had the chance to meet Dimitri Maramenides in Paros island and flew the Thruster 10m ( 2007 ) on the beach ( didn't have much time to test it on the water, my plane was leaving in 1 hour ). I did a few jumps on the beach and I was stoked with the feeling I got on that kite. I couldn't stop thinking about it on the plane, such a weird experience, I never felt like that for a kite . I couldn't wait to try it on the water.
Anyways, to cut the long story short, about 4 months ago a few Thrusters appeared on my kitespot so I asked my friend to have a go on his 8m ( 2008 ). After10 min of ride It felt like the kite of my dreams! Fast and solid flying, fast accelerated turning, explosive pop and jumps, hangtime, awesome feedback on the bar, bullet proof construction, lots of depower ( big range ), easy relaunch and so on. I have spent 4 months now on the Thrusters 10 & 8m on 20m lines and I just can't get enough of them. kiteloops are powerful and explosive ( Cshape style ) and the feedback on the bar is just too good.
Anyways, I don't want to talk too big, the Thruster is a kind of kite that should be flown to convince. If someone asks me on the beach about the Thruster I prefer to say '' here, have a go and you tell me '' saves me from talking, the kite talks for it self :wink:

Huge thanks to Dimitri and Chris for a superb kite and making me a member of the Eclipse team!

Any questions about the Eclipse kites and especially the Thruster please feel free to ask.
