You can't walk a mile in another mans shoes but you can do a lot of bowling.

Could be something to them. They have been gaining momentum over the last few years. A few makers have one or more models and multi generations. Flysurfer is on version 4. Even single skin paragliders out there too.

Peter Lynn himself started playing with the concept like 10 years ago. He offered the plans to the few sizes built and tested to anyone that also wanted to play with single skins. Was mostly recreational builders at first now some major kite manufacturers have invested in the concept.

I have not paid much attention to it since it seemed to be a niche product. But checked out some kitefoiling, snowkiting, and paragliding videos and it looks like the performance is there. Super lite, packs down to nothing, no mechanical pump required, no preinflation. Perhaps the ultimate adventure kite??
