2014-001-andy666-fs_peakThe field of single skin power kites has remained almost completely undeveloped for many years, with only the traditional, 3 line NASA Star kites having any real presence. Well that all changed recently with some of the worlds leading kite developers getting into the field of single skin kites.  Flysurfer is now leading the charge in this area of development.

Ozone 2012 SnowKites, Frenzy & Access!

in Land Kiting , by Joel Theodore
ozone_2012_snowkitesOzone 2012 SnowKites aren't far away, infact for some of you they may already be in your backyard!  Most notably missing from the 2012 lineup is the Ozone Manta, which we rumoured months ago that it may have seen its last incarnation in 2011.  The Manta 1 was first released in 2006 as a 2006/07 model kite, since the original inception of the Manta which was a very high aspect depower foil subsequent years have seen a convergence of the design more and more towards the Frenzy with each model of Manta released all the way up to the Manta 3 2011.
