Kite Scooter

Seated kiteboarding in light wind in Goa!
This kite-scooter, despite being an amateur-built and somewhat crude and heavy prototype, is a fast, incredibly versatile, easy to operate and amazing sail craft.
Designed for light wind and flat water conditions it is best powered by any light wind surf kite, the bigger the better.
The ingenious bow-mounted pivotable rigging system – not only provides the lateral resistance vital for upwind sailing in the most effective conceivable way by using one hydrofoil for each tack, It even transmits only the desired components of kite and foil generated forces to the hull, but not a tiny little bit of heeling moment, the main performance limiting and often unease generating factor of any conventional sail craft.
