i was on the beach the day that mark everitt jumped and flew a loop and andy preston took that picture  , it was a big jump and the savages are fast kites , the evo3 was fast as well , i flew them for 6months testing them and they were very stable and jumped nice , i still have the 8 , 10, and 12 very pretty kites

Wow that jogs some memories for me, I had a Savage back then as well and you are right they were nice kites.  Shame Eolo didn't get with Andy a few years earlier as they came just at the start as people were switching to depower.

it was a funny time with interest in landkiting dropping off ,they decided not to go forward with the EVO 3 for similar reasons ,but the evo range had been around a few years 

andy was at the beach the day i disscovered the sabre2 problem i had a 12 , a 7 and a 5 , i brought them on a  back order , so i got the first ones in the country , and the first problem i had was landing the 5 in a big wind and it split in the middle ,but that was within 1 month so it was repaired by the flexi girls who were still there , any way i was at the beach one sunday morning  a few weeks later and it was an off shore and a bit gusty and early in the morning the wind was lighter but still gusty and the sabre2 12metre just tips over with the forward edge facing  downwards and is uncontrolable and just hits the ground front end first , any way later on as the wind picks up and i 'm flying the sabre2 7metre, still an off shore , and that kite does it also , so they are then for sale ,and that morning was the first time i ever flew an evo 2, as andy had watched procedings and offered me a evo2 6metre to fly for the morning and that was loverly and stable in a strong offshore , but i never ever said anything about the sabre2 and  once mine had gone i forgot about them and i would never diss flexifoil in any shape or form - it was a bad design , but mainly a high gusty wind thing 

flexifoil were king with fixed bridle , nobody came near especially every blade design ,one for every taste, but depower foil is a difficult nut to crack and flysurfer have always been my favourite

and thats how i got my bladeiv's with a swop getting rid of the sabre2's , while the sabre2  had more lift than sabre1 , the2 had some inherent problems if you pushed it in a big wind -lewis had split one in the middle pushing it at a show as lewis always did -ever seen the 4 loops in one jump he did on a landboard with a  flexifoil inflatable -flexifoil made brilliant inflatables ,lewis had all the designs over time and was always amazing with them ,he's with flysurfer now you could do with trying to get the early lewis wilby videos mostly made by sy, lewis was years ahead of anyone else in the early days and then later others riders came on the landboard scene
