A short introduction; my name is Robert and I am the founder / owner of Zian kiteboarding.
The last 5 years I did work as a director of Global Sport Lanka (http://www.gslanka.lk/
) and decided that it is time for a change,
but wanted to stay in the kite business as I do see great possibilities here.
I have had the lucky opportunity to be in one of the "hot spots" of “kite production and design” in this world and have greatly been involved myself in setting new quality and production standards for kites and also windsurf-sails. I have been working with quite a few people in the business around the globe.
My company is based in the beautiful country of Austria, my roots are Dutch (so do forgive me some spelling and grammar mistakes) .
I have absolutely nothing to do with Eclipse; Kima is just the Greek word for wave, and that is where our Kima is designed for, riding waves. We tried to give out Kites some meaning full names: Wave and Eagle, try jumping with an Aquila
The next C-Kite will be something like Dragon-Wing or so.
Zian was derived from the Chinese “Xian” translatable as “wizard; magician; shaman" (in Chinese mythology) or "genie; elf, fairy; nymph" (and a lot more)
Thanks for the asking and the opportunity to set thing straight. Feel free to ask more,
