how long did you have to wait from ordering to receiving your SF
In my case, about 8 months. But because I wanted a custom colour, Chris had said mine would take longer, as he wanted to get a few batches with standard colours out first.
Hhhmmm ..... 8 Months is a long time. Was it worth it? I quote from the website :-
After over 8 months of development and countless prototypes the SuperFly is finally ready for sale....
So in a way you were warned !
Been 2 months since I got mine and I'm still trying to adapt to it.
Only at the beach when I did take it out but inland type gusty wind, I don't really wanna bother...
One thing I can say regarding the locked in turtle, I learnt a bunch of stuff that is pretty much accessible only on this kite such as - Cyniques, Inverse Rolling Cascades, Le Twix, "The Goff" etc. those stand out for me.
I have heard the kite is not great in bumpy winds which is odd as the website says it has 'one of the widest wind ranges of any kite available on the market'. I know bumpy wind isn't the same as low wind but if the kite performs in low wind then you would expect to handle inland winds ok ?!
I have emailed Chris and have only had two responses to date in about 12 months. I would like to try/ buy one and love the sail pattern.
In my most recent email I asked about the build time. That was 6 weeks ago and I have not received a response.
I was told by him that he didn't do custom colours too !
