Will you bring back the stainless steel buggy?
We plan on launching the new stainless steel buggy in May or June 2012. It's also being made here in England at a specialist steel manufacturing factory. This is one of the 2012 products we are really excited about.
Flexifoil has some of the best kites in the world. How come you don?t have a depowerable foil kite? Surely this would be a winner for the brand
This kite is already on the drawing board! It should be launched in 2013 if the design process goes smoothly. We only launch a product when we are 100% satisfied that it's as perfect as perfect can be. We are a bit late with this but I am sure it?ll be worth the wait.
Will Flexifoil be at the USA NABX event in April 2012?
Yes we certainly will be there. In fact, we are the main sponsor of NABX. Coincidently it?s NABX?s 10th anniversary and our 40th anniversary so there will be a massive party. The main event is 3rd until 7th April. The more the merrier so if Las Vegas is a place you?d like to visit, we?re only some 25 miles away.
Will Flexifoil be involved with the 2012 Olympics?
Not directly as kitesurfing isn't yet an Olympic sport. I say yet as it looks as though it is or could be in 2016! Coincidently, we had an event in Weymouth last October at the exact spot where the Olympic dinghy sailing teams compete. I met a number of the Team GB sailing team who I am very pleased to say already fly Flexifoil. Team GB are currently kitesurfing (between training for the sailing) with Flexifoil's very own Jemma Grobbelaar in Cape Town.
