Fall SOBB 2020


In rich anticipation of the rapidly approaching Fall SOBB in September I felt duty bound to do my part to support the German economy by ordering 14 square meters of 6:1 AR single skin FANTASTIC. I don't read German any better than the next American, but below is a nice write up in a German kiting magazine about this beauty. When I went to the Fall SOBB a couple of years ago my biggest kite was a Born-Kite 11m RS and it was a tad under powered a few times. Try as I might I just couldn't quite keep up with Eric and Rick to and from the ship wreck when they had their 12m Peaks afloat. Hope springs eternal that we will all be able to meet this September and that I'll be deliciously overpowered on at least one day with this monster from the old country.

Damn sorry to hear that the lockdown gets extended through July. This is a kite forum so I'll reframe from comment on THAT. Looking forward to seeing folks in September!

Can't wait until fall. On the plus side, any money we save by not traveling for Spring SOBB goes straight into the kite budget right? Someone please say yes, I think my wife may be reading this thread......
