they farmed out the design work to Peter Stuwei (sp?) and Big Eric in Cabarate...and then
like most; did the sewing in China. They seem to be about one season behind in the
basics and two or more behind any new concepts - certainly presenting no problem for
the general kiter.
For the price: $500. for an 11M and $250. for an 18 - it was nutty not to buy one! If I had
to pay any more - and I have - I prefer a branded kite like: North, Takoon, Windwing,
Naish, F-One, Slingy, Cabby, Flexi, Airush, Gaastra, Wipi, RRD, Ocean Rodeo, Caution,
FlySurfer, Ozone or PL. ...the order is random memory, but I'm still partial to el Nortes.
