Surfing kite, 'Storm II', with harness, bag, pump, and brochure, polyester / dacron laminate / plastic / cord, made by Flexifoil International Ltd, China, kite checked and assembled in England, 2003
The total kitesurfing kit includes the following:
The control bar is red, grey and blue with a length of black cord attached as an alternate handle. The control bar is made from moulded carbon composite and is of ergonomic tapered design with an elliptical cross section to improve movement and end mouldings for line storage. Cords are attached at each end of the control bar, with their other ends attached to the kite. Also attached to the control bar is a fail-safe release for the rider. The lines are blue, white and red and made from pre-stretched Dyneema, a synthetic fibre that is 15 times stronger than steel.
The kite is predominantly red and grey and made from a rip-stop polyester nylon. It has Dacron laminate along one edge that fills with air to stop the kite sinking in water. This also assists a rider to re-launch the kite from the water.
The bag is of backpack style, black with grey trim. It is printed with text "12 Storm II" in white, 'www.flexiform.com' in red, and the flexiform logo in the middle of the bag.
The hand pump is grey and black and of upright design. Instructions for use are printed down its side. It has a horizontal bar and attached black hose.
The sales brochure is a white A4 folder containing 8 product specification sheets. There are 4 decals, 2 small and 2 large, with the text 'Flexifoil' on them.
