I read that Skate was made by Focus kite.
Skate Single Line Glider Indoors by Focus Kite Designs
I think now it is made by Intothewind
Any info, is that the same kite with a same weight?
The Skate was a design by Hunter Brown and Paul de Bakker who were Focus Designs (based on a design by Curtiss Mitchell and Jeff Howard).....they also designed the Manta an 11' version of the skate....
so...yes..the ITW version of the Skate and the Manta (if it is released) are from Focus......
The Skate is a phenomenal indoor kite that can be an active flyer...the Manta is a phenomenal stable flyer for outdoors - it can fly indoors but it takes work and space because it is so large!
Also , Does Skate can be fly outdoor?
of course...it is designed as a light wind kite so keep that in mind.....the bow line is easily changed to create a different shape of the main skin so that helps too....but it is a lighter weight lighter framed kite that loves to fly!
Thanks a lot
