My Sportkitedesign Seven SUL arrived today.  She looks pretty sweet!  Definitely seems a bit on the delicate side.  Took a few pictures before diving into homework tonight.  Excuse the clutter - a new roommate recently moved in.









Couldn't decide what to expose for...

Ha ha - yeah, I'd imagine he (my roommate) wouldn't even know what to do with them.

Jörgen makes some damn fine kites, for sure.  This is production #1, too.  Can't wait to get it out on the field.  Will try to shoot some video at some point, but it always feels like such a production.  I'm lazy.

Just shoot and post... dont need any music but the wind. We need to see this thing fly since theres no video of this bird at all... and you know I want one.

So you will post video #1 of production kite #1... no pressure there... Smiley

Can anyone explain a non-native English speaker where does the name ''pinstriping'' come from?
I can see no relation between "striping pins" and black division lines on the kite...

Thanks,

N.

Again, beautiful kite.

 Cheesy

American English is a funny thing, isn't it? "Pinstriping" as it's used here was probably started because that's the term used for a particular style of decorative painting on cars. As used for kite sails, you would probably define it as "outlining." Notice how individual pieces of the kite's layout are outlined in black. The thin black outlines represent pinstriping. I think. ;-)

Nancy  <---- who thinks your grasp of English is quite spectacular. Way-better than my Español.... or my own English, for that matter.
