DSD Intel and Ilokano kites built at the loft in Cebu went on the 4th leg of a Philippine tour stopping at Seaside Beach Park in Dimiao, Bohol.
Previously available for testing in Pagudpud, Boracay and Palawan, Bohol was the 4th stop with Dumaguete a likely 5th stop early in 2017.
Kitesurfers and schools/instructors in the areas were invited to test out the ILOKANO kites made predominantly for the Philippine market and there was also one newly designed C kite on hand to try, and can be seen in one of the photos being tested by Dano See, the man behind DSD Intel and designer of the Ilokano kites. Dano was on hand to offer advice on all aspects including setting up bars and lines and had a couple of his newly designed twin tips and a surfboard available for try out.
Although the wind didn’t play ball still some flying time was had by all in attendance to sample the 9mt, 11mt and 13mt Ilokano designs and the 9mt DSD C kite, the 5.5mt and 8mt Ilokano didn’t have a chance! Perhaps next time in Dumaguete it will.
