Kite Wing: the "Do It All" Wing Thang
A Michigan friend of a friend is the USA importer for this new toy that I recently learned about.
OK, ya got yer windsurfer and your kite-board and your skis and snowboard and your skateboard. Is there any way to tie 'em all together?
A Kite Wing is like a windsurfer sail without the mast. Thus you can use it on any of your glide-toys. The Kite Wing liberates the sail, unhooks it from the toy and lets you carry it between em all.
It's a sail that's balanced in any wind just from your arms holding it. There's wing above and below the boom you grab. it's designed so the forces fore and aft and high and low all balance out and let you aim where you want to go and go there, no matter what kind of glidey thing you're standing on. Cool!
For the first time ever the same sail will work on land, snow and water. Amazing! Now, it does look like they're selling it in a couple different modes, but from what I can see one would work across the board. I'm all about versatility...and this toy has it in spades!
Liberate the sail!
