No disrespect. Lou is the man,

But why has it taken so long to develop his C kite?

"The Lou"? Can anybody from Wainman confirm or deny this? I've been hoping they'd release a C Kite sometime soon.

I read the Kiteboarder thread and the guy mentions that the bar is being kept under wrap so Lou does not get his innovations stolen... What innovations were stolen from him? The delta shape? the unsafe safety system that wraps around the depowerline if you hook the leash to be safe9gees this is hard to read)? The 3 strut structure like the Ozone light or Eclipse Nano (both 2007)? The non one-pump like anything before 2006 (or maybe 2005)? It does not sound like it but I am interested by WH since they came out but the bar turned me off from the start. I think they would benefit from leaking a few pics of the bar so we can make our opinion and have some motivation to wait. Teh 2011 gear is all purchased now but will be sold in about a month or so to get the gear for the winter and the summer 2012 season. I think the kite works well, everybody i know likes them but I really wonder about that bar. Anyways, I don't think safety systems should be kept secret... If you have a good one, great if people copy it just be wise and call it the Lou release... imagine North writing... <<We just incorporated the new LOU release to our Iron heart>>
