Paraflysurf is a company that wants to make good things better
and if there is
no good thing to improve, we design our own products.
Sometimes equipment is good, but not
But we are never satisfied with what we get, thats why we always
try to push the
The first limit was
the turn rate of softkites in 2001.
Paraflysurf 's answer was the
legendary SPIDER-Competition bar.
With the SPIDER-C the turn rate of every kite increases dramatically.
It has two independent safety systems working with back stall
and front stall and you can switch
from 4-line to 2-line steering inflight.
With a SPIDER-C your kite turns as fast as you want and not as
fast as it can.
Paraflysurf was the
first company that designed a real Depower System
for softkites called UDS
Most softkites have the tendency to
get a bad turn rate in depower mode.
The reason is a bad designed depower
system that tries to be as easy as
possible for the pilot but it does not support the wings needs.
UDS gets the maximum performance out of every wing.
We started with the UDS-I, for handle
use, followed by the UDS-II for bar use
and the UDS-IIvari
for both. In 2006 we brought the last
the UDS-III with the smart Override for A-, B-, C- and D-section
In lot of studies we found out that a
four line steering with
handles was too complicated for some kite beginners.
Thats why we designed
the SPIDER-Sling. First only for our own courses
but as we saw how much better and faster the
beginners increased their
kiting experience with this tool, we began to sell it in our shop.
As the Bow kites
come to market, everyone said they are a revolution,
but indeed they showed that the rest of the market had slept for
The wide depower range was a good safety argument and the C-Kites
had nothing comparable.
But that does not mean that "Bows" are good
and C-kites are bad.
Paraflysurf developed the DPS-Depower Pulley System
for Inflatables in
2005. Now you can have the same depower
with an "old" C-Kite as with a brandnew "Bow" !
We are using 5th-lines on Bow kites
since 2005 but there are companies
that sell it as their new ideas for 2007.
After the first 5th-Y-lines appeared
on the market we introduced
the floating Y-with a pulley for better turn rate.
That was in early 2006, but you can
now read in the prospects
that it is new for 2007.
What ever we
designed, Paraflysurf was always one step ahead.
In 2004 our Team became World
Champion in Snowkite-Race Ski.
company had the opinion "they dont need
Depower Systems" on High Performance kites and most of the
"High Performers are
But after our Team Rider Michi Kaspar won race after race with
his UDS-tuned U-Turn
PKD-Century and became
World Champion 2004 after
he already won the Swiss Championship
in 2003, they all began to work on similar systems. With no results
until today as we all
Paraflysurf will go on pushing the limits.
Sometimes we are pushing too hard and
some pilots might be confused
by our tuning systems, but if you want to be the best, you need
equipment, and if you can not handle it, you have to excercise.
If you are too lazy to excercise, and
if you are easy to satisfy,
you can go on with your standard equipment.
But if you are not,
you will find some interesting tools here
that help you pushing your own limits and
