This is sad news for all Gin riders...... and everyone who ever flew Gin kites ...... Its hard to accept news like this .....
I just got new Gin Urus few weeks ago .... high quality product ... stable and good looking .... I was looking forward to fly new Gin Sherpa this winter .....

Bummer for you guys.
On the upside, your kites will soon have collector value.
Only gin I have had is with tonic, and this for medicinal purposes only when out at sea.
Lots of other good kites out there, don't loose the stoke
