Vari Kites?

Postby kiteguy17 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 10:43 am

Anybody here familiar with Vari kites (vulcan or Condor) might get a good deal on them but don't really know the brand. Heard about Martin Vari but thats it.

When i'm not mistaken you also dropped this question on a dutch forum.

There should be an Dutch distributor for Vari. When i'm not mistaken he rides on Workum some of the time. Or maybe you can test the kites before you buy?

Are they still making kites? If so then disregard my post. I though you were talking about the three year old kite.

Yes asked on a dutch forum also, seems there's a new dealer. And yes they have 2012 kites coming. Just curious what the opinion is on these kites

I will test them off course.

Its probably not going to be easy to find reactions about the kites. Although there where some topics on this forum a long time ago. Maybe search on the forum?

I have ridden the 7,9,12 of the 2012 kites they are great. I know one of the designers, if anybody sold them where I live I would for sure buy one. Gabriel one of the designers is a great wave kiter and takes alot of time on r and d.

Thank you Jbrook, want to use it for wave also, did you ride the Vulcan? or the Condor?

Saw the vid of those russian guys also, looked nice to me, not much action but the kites look good.

On the dutch forum they say i'd better go for a known brand and that the quality isn't that good? Also that a good deal would mean 600 euro for 2 complete kites, but that sounds crazy to me actually since known brands would even cost you 1100 euros for 1 kite at least.

I will test them off course, but some info about Vari would still be nice :D
