Nice! It looks like a podracer. Anakin Skywalker would be proud. It looks like the front lines are attached to the boat, and back lines to the bar. So... the boat could get tea-bagged

Sick! I expected a canoe, but a hydrofoil trimaran, now you're talking!

I'd like to see a refined version aimed at being a flat water speed machine.

I'm a bit disappointed that there were no boosts, raleys or handlepasses in that video. That would have been impressive,

"Pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control",could Orwell have got it more wrong, 1984 was such a cool year...2012 now thats a whole different deal.

These are just about to land in Australia, will post up results of our testing for sure, details here

The Wingit system has been under development for around 4 years, was a bit clunky at first, now its been refined we are very keen to try them out.

So, does the cost include the 'boat' (kat), the kite and bar system, etc? What does the package actually include...

That must be so much fun in waves eheheh

I'll get the guys to make it clearer. The Cat is not included, the control system and attachment system are sold separately. Someone familiar with yacht rigging can probably make something similar, but the wingit system has had a lot of R&D and allows for the "tow" point to be adjusted easily.
