Winter?

Nah... Only in the Northern Hemisphere ;)

If I try to make one where can I get the bladder for it? It is a custom made, right?

Yes the bladder is custom made. You could also use one from an old kite or order a new bladder from one of the kite repair shops. The dxf file includes the pattern.

Great job Pantau thank you - I`ll get straight on it ( see if i can beat 8 months build time!)

Downunder - bladders can be expensive but you can often pick them up on e-bay/facebook etc - trouble is most are for one-pump systems, but it is not so much work to remove the extra valves and weld/glue in patches - good practice for bladder repairs too!

Nice work PanTau - too big for me though - the 10 is plenty powerful in 5/6knots. Looking at the underside view it looks as if you had gone for a radical X-bridle but its just an illusion.

Hi steve,
5-6kn is really amazing! The 12m is for heavier guys like me :-)
