Yesterday I was on the beach with two friends flying the B'zar 2011 Although there was little wind the kite did fly as if it was an UL so I am very pleased with the results. Frank shot some pictures and put them on the website of www.tweelijners.be
He also did a lot of filming on this large beach and blue sky. He is now editing the material into a nice video I may hope. I asked Nils to finish the plans and I will post all the info to Positivo who will put it all together on my site. So you see this is a result of a whole team!!
For all those who are waiting I have to warn you guys, this is a kite with broadseaming in a curved seam so take care while constructing. It must be done very precisely because we talk about millimeters. But, if you succeed, i promise you a very nice kite that will do a whole lot of tricks with ease, a large windrange starting in 6 km/h going to 18 km/h, very flat tazz-machines, even doubles ( ask Nils for that )nice multislots, lifters, cyniques, a good pitchbehaviour with one pop and two pop yoyo's etc... I hope that video will be released soon. It took me a little to long, I know, sorry for that but I hope you will enjoy it!!
I will be working on a UL version during this season and probably a vented too because next year there will not be a new model of the B'zar. I experienced that creating something new that not only is different but also has enough improvements as a whole takes more than one season.
I hope to see a lot of new B'zars 2011 on the forums all over the world. Last posted kitepic was of a 2010 on a white blanket of snow and made in Moskow!! It really makes me happy to feel the enthousiasm that all kitebuilders show towards our Belgian kitemodels. Have fun!!
