another one veturi flop?
Yep, almost didn't respond to this one. I hate
trolls like this guy
but felt I should say something.
The Mako is about as far from a flop as you can imagine. It's the longest running production board in kiteboarding... we've been making it for 13 years.
Don't trust me? Why would you.. How about Kiteworld Magazine who recently called it "a hugely rewarding ride that turns mush into lush"
As for the "One Venturi flop", if you want to raise your Trolling street cred you're gonna have to check your facts, bro. The One was a hugely successful kite for us when we released it in late 2005. Venturi Technology was never used on the One. In fact, it was released in 2008 on the Rise and continues to be used on our Razor
kites today. (Two kites that operate at a very high angle of attack or over a very large wind range).
Venturi Tech was never copied by other brands because we hold patents covering the innovation, though we are open to reasonable licensing agreements with any company interested. Our company prides itself on innovation and helping drive this sport forward and welcome the opportunity to work with other brands who value that thought process as well.
