Put this T on last night (I did iron it)

Anyone remember the logo? Part of the roots of the sport in the UK!

7m flytec. 2 lines no deposed, allegedly water relaunch able foil. Oh yeah. Used to back stall for fun right into the middle of the powezone and then power up again.
Still got a 9m f-one stw which is just as dangerous only bigger and way more powerful.

"Still crispy" if anyone wants to grab themselves a bargain.

I don't remember flytec!

Those guys were on it with wipika at the start, Free airs then airblast, Then along came caution and GK. Seem to remember them doing a fair bit of slingshot back in the day.
Cant have lasted long as Sean and GRF always had irate banter on here. Shop was always full of Dakine as well!

20m caution was one of the best big kites. And i loved the sonic when that came out. I still remember the demo at the bksa blackpool 2004 ithink, the fatbloke was holding onto a 11m in a squal when every one else was getting dragged down the beach it was a revalation compared to C kites of the day.

I think a lot of us started on the blue and white LW 158 (I think that was the size?)

I had a 20mtr caution, great kite, but f'in huge. Had mine up to about five years ago, pumped it up inside a friends business premises just before I got rid and it was massive!

Was that 2004? same year this forum started! I remember that day, the sonic was one of the first of its kind.
