if I think of the high productions standard with paragliders I, m completely bemused why the kite industry fails to learn from other sport industries.
I have never ever in 29 years had to or seen a paraglider that had quality production issues on delivery but sadly in the kite-surfing industry quality control is a hit and miss affair.
some brands are taking the piss big time and kite surfers are paying for it with there time, the most precious gift of life!
I completely understand where your coming from here , because i've bin
flying PG's since 1989 ; but comparing
the profit-margin between a $1,500 water kite to $5,000 PG is kind of
unfair ; don't Ya think ? Pay $5K for something, and it better damn-well
go in a straight line when i let go of the controls !!!
Ozone is a top-quality builder of PG and water kites ; of the last 6 ozone
kites i've owned, at least 1/2 has had a small turn that needed tuning out
to make it perfect. How long does it take to make a knot that's a few mm
shorter on one of your front-lines ? I simply hand my new kite to Darin, to
sort-out ; a Beer is a small price to pay for the work.
