Not the UK.

Some great spots here for the sport. $100k will get you nothing though.

Re: Slingshot Foil Kite (is it really an Elf?)

According to their website the 11m is $2775 USD (I'm in the US so I'm not calculating VAT or export duties). The 15m is $3280, the 18m is $3780. Given that you could get a new race kite for that money, I'm curious why there isn't really ANY info whatsoever on their site about why this kite is worth...

Re: Slingshot Foil Kite (is it really an Elf?)

Re: Is this worth fixing?
