Shipping update!

Recommended Posts

The first batch of Djinns is being finished as we speak, just down to leading edges and parts assembly now - our factory is working hard to deliver the first box to us sometime in the next couple of weeks, thanks for your ongoing support and patience! 🤙

That was fast!

We’ve just delivered / shipped the first 32 kites (including Riff’s), the next 45 kites are on their way to our office as we speak.

I know it’s small comfort (if any) but the manufacturing timeline really got thrown by the massive number of custom orders (roughly 35%-40%), added a lot of one by one labor to the process as opposed to the stock colors (assembly line sail cutting). No excuse, merely explaining, I trust you’ll bear with the challenges in favor of receiving great kites in exchange for your patience. 🙏🏻

Thanks for the update John. Can’t wait to see my custom set of Djinns. After flying yours in Long Beach I know the wait is well worth it. Besides it’s raining and no wind the last few day.

Will be at Atlantic Beach tomorrow. Will probably cross paths with the Shooks. There's actually a Gale Warning for tonight and winds will be a bit strong 15mph+ for my Standard but if I get a lull, it's sure to make a showing.

Waiting for appropriate winds. I didn't do custom colors with the first one.. Winds were 20-25+ today. Not the environment for a full sail..

One for sure thing I've learned is you can't judge a kites color till it's in the air. Starting to wonder if I'll ever see a ugly one. The last 2 just make me smile wider.

A grand total of 76 Djinns are now with or on their way to their owners, stay tuned for updates on our next shipment which should be all customs. ;)

Most of the last batch has already arrived in flyers’s hands and I’m pleased to report our builders are back to 100%... As always, subject to variables and shipping time, 46 more Djinn (mixed customs and stock colors) should be on their way to us as of Dec 14, there is even a fighting chance they’ll be delivered to North American flyers in time for Christmas. Thanks for your ongoing patience, we’re nearly caught up now. ✌️
