I would think after four years, they could make a C kite that flew well.
I hope something good comes of this, because their kites are good and a bit different than any other, their Joke is also unique in design, would hate to see that all go away.
hey OB - where do you get your info on the Maniac kite being awful? have you ridden the Maniac? i have actually tried the Maniac and know a few hardcore wakestyle riders using the kite and everyone is stoked. Do you know Lou, Bertrand, Tuva and Hannah personally? You seem to be providing some in-depth company info and your posts on this forum seems like you are affiliated with Epic maybe? I think its only fair to get the full story - sad that so many people like yourself gets a kick out of other companies going through issues and just jumping to conclusions. so many kite companies go through changes (look at Slingshot and all their main riders changing teams) and riders (especially older ones) go after mo money as their days are numbered. I don't ride WH but think they are an exciting brand and look forward to what they come up with.
