some one could re-invent and make a few bucks
If there was a few bucks in it they might still be available
Actually, at the time when he decided to give the business up (2008 according to his web site):
- IMHO, the surf market was not his ideal target,
- the windsurf practice had already found its ideal footstrap model ala Dakine
- strapless kiteboarding had foot hooks since 2006 but also stopped circa 2008 (Airush ? 2 years like the Predator)
... so their wasn't a proper or sustainable market IMHO.
I remember circa 2009 to 2011 that many foilboarders on the Kitefoil forum where crying out for an on/off device but foot hooks had disappeared from Europe (had to be ordered from NSI) and Predators where so local to Australia that nobody had even heard about them.
Now that there is this new market arriving with many people anxious to preserve their ankles and looking for a true ON/OFF comfy solution, wdric, if you can have a word with Sean about it, keep us posted please
Wdric, if you have a spare pair, since you are from Oz, I am sure Marvin and the KFA team would be happy to test/adapt/improve and maybe advert them !
