Vliegerop bought the Peter Lynn licence from Mr Peter Lynn who designed and patented the foil Arc kite. I hope they have learned something from the Charger 1 experience. But if you ask me, I would never buy from them.
Like --poldo-- I Also learned to kitesurf with a pair of PL Arc Guerilla, 13 e 18, and they were
really, REALLY good kites for the age (2003). I Still have a good quiver of Venom's and
they work good for teaching and snow-kiting.
I actually went to the park with a young girl i met at a bar, a week ago ; gave her the first
lesson on a 10-M Venom, in 3 to 6mph wind, (she was looping it within two hours)
and knows the difference between a Down-loop or Up-loop !
Also a GREAT KITE ; for the age !!
I had a VERY BAD experience with Vliegerop ; they sold me a NEW kite , that had
hardly any of the stuff which holds the air in the cells, (i could actually breath through it)
with my mouth pressed against the fabric, and it would go Flat within 4-minutes
after it hit the water, (basically making it Impossible to relaunch).
They Refused to replace, so I said : "OK then"
and wouldn't purchase another PL kite if it was given to me for 1/2 price from the factory !!
---((Where is the f***-You smilies ?))---
That was a complete Waste of a $1000 USD ; and YES , i'm Still PISSED !!!!!!!!
I immediately switched to OZONE after that ; with Good results , and my 2008 13-M Edge
still works just fine , so i'd say Ozone makes a decent product !!
