Core is made in Sri Lanka. Same factory as North and Eleveight. Crazy Fly is actually the only one produci...

Re: The Perfect Quiver

5x5, 5,5, 2x6, 3x8, 9, 10, 2x11, 3x12, 13, 14, 15, 16 Seriously? 22 kites! So is that considered a quiver or a collection? You only get to count the ones that hold air and are ready to fly.

Man that looks like so much fun! How does he control the angle of the foil? And what happens if the kite pulls to hard on the foil and it surfaces? Looks like a helmet and maybe some body armour would be wise.
He put a electric on the vire, and have to controlsswitchs strapped on the to bar..

High tech super foil

A friend of mine tried out hydrofoils way before anyone had seen kiters on them, and he also had this sick tech project. A home made carbon foil only attached with a vire, remote on the bar!
