Showcase for the PDSUL, Ocius Indoor (coming soon, model not complete yet) and the Inak. The Ocius in the video is just a UL with the Lower and Upperspreaders swapped out for lighter rods (2pt). The kite shows a lot of potential! This was the maiden flight of the first stage in the kites becoming.

Did I just see a PDSUL do a cometé at 2:35 and an iNak do the same at 5:40?

Love seeing all these different Ocius color combo's, for a sail design that seemed pretty limited at first impression we've seen a pretty wide variety for such a simple scheme. Liking that kite more & more.

Not if this cometé is anything like a comčte you didn't, no.

Nice vid. but it was a little shocking to see such a gentle and floaty kite like a Pro Dancer SUL being hauled about like that  Wink

Wow I really enjoyed that video. Good stuff Devin.

Didn't even crossed my mind that the Pro Dancer SUL is capable of such stuff including comets in an indoor setting. May I know what is the line length you used for the Pro Dancer SUL and the knot placement on the bridle as a reference?

Ocius looks like it might be the indoor winner.  Anychance one of those will be at WSIKF.  Would love to tug those strings for a trial.  How about at AKA?

Hey guys,
Thanks for the kind words, and spelling corrections hahaha. I'm not sure about the Ocius Indoor Model's arrival anywhere, but I bet it'd be at convention. Last I asked, Jon was going. Drop him an email.


The Inak wasn't exactly a comete, but the first prodancer one WAS. The second was kinda a combo of the beginning and an axel mid trick to gain some height.

Either way, indoors, especially on the prodancer, if it looks like that, I'll take it lol. Both kites really are very capable indoors, ya just gotta know their limit before they break. I've been there many'a time. hahahahahahaha  Cheesy. I can't tell you how many times the Inak frame looked so distorted I thought it was donefor before this video. It holds up tho, so I just keep pushing it to that limit- see whats possible, yaknow? I'm sure there's more, but I haven't been able to put a lot of time on the kite because well... midwest... winds, you know haha. No place to fly indoors either- this was at Kites over branch county.

That was most certainly a comete - I think you should revisit the video and take another look.
