    Some speculation on another forum that Flexifoil is gone. Does anyone know more? Pity, seems like the end of an era.

    Unsure about speculation, realistically they were 'gone' as a kite company years ago.  They went from being a kite brand to selling plastic water bottles, hammocks, towels and whatever else they could print 'flexifoil' on and progressively reduced their range of kites year after year.  Real shame, my old Flexifoil Blade IV's remain my favourite fixed bridle kites to this day :) 


  2. Kevin Langeree announces launching his new kitesurfing brand Reedin Kites.  
    He's partnered up with Damien Girardin whom previously worked for Naish Kiteboarding.  

    I remember interviewing Kevin back in around 2009 for a podcast after he had just won the world freestyle championships.  A decade later being at the top of the sport he launches his own brand.  Incredible progression, can't wait to see how he moves forward.

    This is an interesting development. Interesting to read they recommend it for land and water use but do not mention land use in a buggy. Perhaps it would be to difficult to use sitting down? I would like to hear people’s views on use in a buggy? What do you think? Couldn’t find a price either!

    They've come out mainly aimed at hydrofoiling, an inflatable version of @bakersdozen's fixed wing so they float when you hit the water :)
