We are in the final stages of testing and prototyping the new best "flat" kite. We've been waiting in the wings, observing and testing every other brand's flat kite down here in Brazil and we think we've come up with an amazing kite. It minimizes the negatives found in most "bow" type kites (bar pressure, inverting, sliding through turns, cumbersome bridles, complicated bars and perhaps most importantly, PRICE) and maximizes the positives (safety & de-power, lift, hangtime, turning speed, responsiveness & re-launch).
But we need your help... We need to decide on a name for the kite.
Everyone in the office has narrowed it down to either Allura or Waroo. Both words come from an Australian Aboriginal dielect (like Yarga). Allura was the name of a tribe from the Northern Territory and Waroo is the Aboriginal word for "fire" (it is also the name of a fish found in Brazil, but that is unrelated to the Aboriginal history of the word).
So help us out and vote for your favorite.
The Waroo or Allura will be available in 2006 and we anticipate the kite to start at $499.
