Tom makes all the depower kites for you, open- as well as closed-cell. He is a master of knot tying and effectively follows his own ideas for minimal design in kites. Performance does not always have to be built to the limit.
Götz is a freelance photographer who has travelled half the globe with HQ4 – always hunting for that perfect photo. When he smells a good motif, he can manage to drive every pilot crazy. No matter where to find it, Götz swims across water, trudges into snow or crawls through mud – his Canon at the ready.
