does the SUL come with 2 wrap and SLE with 3 wrap spars?? is their any other difference?? I like the idea of a B series because I can get a matching vented sail down the road and the extra spars... sounds like the SLE with race rods is the all in one but the race rods are $$$ these kites are so modu...

Re: 180GO! Fan T-Shirt Help

I've been asked by lots o' folks for a 180GO! t-shirt. So, here's a rough draft. Hopefully it will inspire improvements or a whole new design from someone... Ideally, it should work on a red shirt. It should probably also include the IKE logo. I don't know if it will be screen-printed or via Zazzle...

Re: Sail Paint Question

Interesting... but what about brush on... I would love to paint kite sails (need to start drawing again first) I would have to learn tagging as an art form if its only spray on...

I could see it now (this kite tagged by Bill)
