Sewing is a skill I wish I had the time and ability to pursue. Vids provide a real appreciation for the engineering and labor to construct a sail. Makes me appreciate the cost a bit more. My guess is if we saw how bars are constructed, we'd be wondering why they are so expensive. Not a dig at this manufacturer just a general rant.

This was indeed the main reason for making this series of clips. Many people dont realize the amount of work, space, machines and workmanship that go into kite production.
