Hi, I am in search of a new owner. Since arriving at my current home sometime in Nov of 2016, I have been out flying a few times. During these occasions, I have been flipped, twirled, dragged, flown a little, but mostly crashed. Yeah mainly crashed, not too much fly time. Results of these crashes have caused a few things to break, tear, or get lost. To begin, I have a tear in the center near the tail section. This tear has been taped with kite repair tape. Seems to be holding ok. Next we have had a broken center spreader that has been replaced. Not sure of the brand, but it’s the red/black ones. Another flying occasion, my owner lost my tail weight…again by crashing. The great people at A Wind of Change were nice enough to send me a replacement. My tail weight is now taped on as so my owner will not lose it again. For my last time out….thinking this would be better! You guessed it…another crash. This one was really bad. The replacement center spreader held up nicely, but the center T broke this time. As you can see in the picture, it has not been replaced.
One time, while out flying, one of the lines broke. I was hoping the other one would break so I could fly away from my owner that couldn’t fly me. Well he managed to get me back down, probably crashed… I don’t remember.
With my story, comes a ransom note from my owner… Please pay $180 OBO to have me shipped to your home.

I am selling what I believe is a one of a kind North Shore Radical by TOTL. It is a tie-dye sail that is is beautiful condition. I am honestly not sure how long I have had it in my bag, but it has markings from 1998 as well as a signature by Ron Reich from 2001. I have never flown it myself, and the bridle looks in perfect condition.
I am asking $300 OBO. It is a beautiful, rare kite that, as I am aware, is a one of a kind.
Please let me know if you are interested.
I can email pics, the photos are too large to upload.

This is going back in the bag. Thanks for looking.
I am selling my home-built Monster std. in order to fund other toys. This is a great kite designed by Christian Derefat and built by me. It is built to the designers original specifications:
Leading edge: 6mm pultruded (one piece)
Upper Spreader: 6mm pultruded
Spine: 6mm pultruded
Lower spreader: Skyshark 5pt black diamond
Sail: Icarex and Mylar with Icarex pinstripes. LE is Dacron. APA fittings with RSky Center-T. Nose is Bisonyl.
And yes, that is polyester florescent yellow contrasting thread!
It has the Derefat feel that some of his other designs have. Very tricky, great jacobs ladders and super pitchy.
This kite is a real looker. The only build flaw is that my machine dropped the pointed-part of three stitches in two of the pinstripes--only noticeable if you look for them. Look hard in the last picture.
No holes, tears, or any heavy wear; the kite is over all in really good shape. I have been home building like crazy and have more kites than I can fly.
Asking $190 plus shipping (keep in mind the one piece LEs may make shipping a few dollars more than normal--not sure about this though).
Please don't hesitate to ask questions.
I want to share with you a video I made, a project really. This project took me about six months, four locations, 2 continents, 3 kites, 1 Xiaomi Yi sport camera, one John Lenon, some improvisation, and a lot of patience.
The idea was to make a video of stunt kite tricks from a completely new perspective. The innovation of filming from the kite's perspective has an added value, meaning the simple fact of seeing everything from the other side, watching the affect of the lines on the kite, having a closer look on the work of the bridle, etc. Also, I hope that the international locations would add even more color to the backdrop, as it were.
I'm no master in kite tricking. On the contrary, I bow my head to the masters and veterans, from whom I still have a lot to learn. But I do want to contribute to this incredible sport and its amazing international community, which I have grown to love and appreciate over the last two years. I hope that in some small way, I'm doing my part in growing the sport, drawing more followers to it, and possibly shedding a new, although possibly pocket size, light on things.
I had a lot of fun making it. I hope you enjoy watching it.
