Spiderkites Smithi

Wed Feb 22, 2012 8:28 pm

Just saw this blog post on a new Spiderkites Smithi 4-line foil kite, said to be "almost as good as a Rev".

Interesting for sure, and I look forward to reading some reviews, seeing some vids, etc. If they really are that precise and controllable, it might make a pair/team routine with a foil a distinct possibility ...

I remember watching a 3 man team do a routine with 3.5m Flexifoil Bullets a few years back - was certainly different.

Here's a brief vid of someone flying a prototype. Does look more controlled, precise and snappy than your average quad foil
