This kite reminds me of a kite called the Typhoon that was made in France in the late 80's.
This kite looks very similar to it. It was even faster then a 6' Flexi Foil. (back then they advertised the Flexi as the worlds fastest kite) I had a cop friend who clocked it with a radar gun out of a turn doing over 80 mph.
How fast is this one?
