Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

GregK - Thanks. kitesafe1 - For me, the idea was to explore new kite performance without making any assumptions. So I felt the place to start was to strip everything off the kite to really learn what each part is doing before adding back as needed. The kite now in production speaks of what we found....

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Thanks for your interest GregK. I'm STOKED that you seem to appreciate the kite's simple approach. I'm not aware of any committed development of similar kites by other brands. As Boardriding Maui is a new independent project, it has been super refreshing to be able to share information openly, inclu...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Panchito - Really? That much stoke? For real? Thanks Man! I'm stoked too! To be able to share the stoke with others is so great. Oldnbroken - The paipo pictured has a surfboard rocker, just lowered over the back half to work with the flex. My suggestion would be that rocker needs to be addressed wit...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Thanks for your comments offering help Gigi. Let me know if you're on Maui any time and I'll be happy to meet up for a ride. I'm guessing the kite may be interesting to you, and perhaps influence some of the ideas you've offered. As for "hobby kite designing", I guess you could call it this as my wo...
