Hi Chris (and all other Manta lovers
Thank you for your email! I will answer here on GWTW as other kitefriends could be interested too.
Happy to hear, that you like the Manta! It is a great kite for light winds and loves a light breeze.
Sorry, but I don’t build kites for cash. Kiteflying is “just” a hobby for me. A serious hobby, yes, but still a hobby. I build kites only for myself or to swap with kites from other kitebuilders.
Beside of this, I offered HQ / Invento the Manta and they are thinking about a production for 2010. They didn’t reach a decision yet, but – let us give them a bit of time.
If HQ isn’t interested, maybe I find another producer – let us see…
Another possibility: a workshop. I offered a Manta workshop in Copenhagen and we had a lot of fun. With a bit of experience, you can easily build a Manta in one day – its not rocketscience
