Great crew!

Great video of you flying the ZEBRA foil.

The ZEBRA here in the USA IS NOT a well known kite. It's a misunderstood kite. Most people here think it's a full race kite only and they don't understand that it's a most versatile flyer.

I might be the only one flying ZEBRA'S on this side of the pond. I've got a quiver full and love them!

Short line it and go fast, medium line go fast but not as intense to handle, long line go fast but easy to fly.

I was trying to figure out what kites to quiver and I kept seeing ZEBRA'S in all the European buggy videos. Always at least one but usually 2 or 3 or more. When I started to buy my first ZEBRA I was surprised of the low prices. I thought it was a lot of "bang for my buck." I was hooked the first time I flew one.

I bought a ragged out 3.4m from Dino in California. He had flown out at NABEX, now IBX. When it arrived it was covered with playa dirt, dust and had a stained playa dust red on the white. NOT crispy at all. Well, went to the field, put on a 25m line set, walked it out and gave it a tug and ZOOM. Right up to the apex. Dropped it into the window and got one heck of a scud in a light wind of 7 mph. Jumped into the buggy and flew it till I was worn out!

I was hooked. Still having fun.


Too much stuff.
