I am a buggy instructor, and kite land boarder. I actually use Arc kites not
LEI's (or did you just get it mixed up).
Oops I did get it mixed. Duh, too late at night, I guess.
A friend of mine, Peter Trow, has used Foil's for years but also now uses
LEI's. Last August, I was talking with him at the King of the Bay San
Contest, he told me, he lent his 12m FLEXIFOIL LEI kite to a 'guy' named
Aaron for the contest. It worked well enough for Aaron to win it.
I am copying this to US kiteboarding Mag, to make them aware of your
for possible story's here in the future editions.
