the foil is going to have its bridle altered so that it takes less effort to

its a 10m foil manufactured by SOL sports of brasil (they produce paragliders) I
am not sure if they have started global distribution yet. the kite is of a

improving (Sol is investing in kitesurfing) that will be improved on final
product release, (i am helping them test their kites)
The cool thing about this kite is the on the fly depower system - but its not
totally ready for market yet... ill tell you guys more once it is ready...
