Why would that be close to Bruno and Wipika ?
Taking over a brand founded by someone else was close Toby!
Congratulations! Look forward to follow you.

Kind regards, Mikkel

Taking over....that yes 😁

That's a big step, true. Looking forward to more info. Why Lacuna ? Pretty unknown to most. And who else is involved ?

And, most important: will your 18 have 5 or 6 struts? 😎
The full story of how we came to be the new owners will be told soon.

For now, Su and I will be it, along with a few select riders in CPT to help with development testing.

Su is doing kite design and commercial management, I'm all the other hardware design plus engineering and product management.

18sqm 5 strut air style kite for Toby is already on the development list, been way to long since you had a new kite. We might need to come to Brazil to deliver it and do final tuning tho...

Cheers

Wow, that's huge! Best of luck!
