Well i just saw the 2014 Vegas... personally i think its horrible. It looks like a Gaastra Sailboat sail or something like that. Maybe better in other colours then i saw.

In the end liking graphics is a personal taste. I just pumped the Surf LTD and its definitly not a sigma shape. It sure is a weird kiteshape to look at.

One of the interesting things about the SURF kite is how it seats on the ground. Because of its shape and how far the nose is from the ground. You can actually leave the kite on the beach and no need to put anything on the kite to hold it down. It won't fly away, it just seats there in 20+++ mph.

Yes in did Mr.BWD very strange looking but it works incredibly well. Again I am not happy about its turning speed but we are working on it.
Concerning the video, will have one once everything is ready for production.

Par pitié, montez des fermetures éclaires en plastique qui ne peuvent pas casser par la rouille.

FrenchPascal, tous nos fermeture éclair sont fabriquées en plastique. Même chose avec la plupart des autres sociétés de kite.
All our zippers are made out of plastic material. Same thing with most of the other kite companies out there.

So that shape sitting on the beach with the front end off the sand won't allow the wind to get under the kite and loft it?

Wainmen smokes sit off the ground and you must put sand on them or they will go.

Interesting design for sure.

Well Mr.Westozzy if I do the same with with the SCREAMER or the RENEGADE kite they will fly off also if the wind is strong, unless I put something heavy on top of them.
