Maybe I missed it, but what's the deal with no Element inventory? Hard to recommend something if customers can't buy a kite.

Are things OK?

There was supposed to be a new kite last spring along with a new bar. Seems like I read the 'new kite' project got shelved for a different project? Is it coming?

Its now August and no new bar.

Bar got bumped back due to a last minute safety issue they found. I also think they had to move warehouses. As far as I know everything is fine. Maybe Bill or Felix could shed some light. It does look bad to people not in the know when a new customer cant even get a bar with a kite that isnt available.

I was just thinking that. Things got very quiet. Not much activity on the page and stock low. With not special deals.

Hello Guys.
Just a quick up date on our stocks
Things are moving forward very quickly .
We are trying our hardest to fill our stock levels.
Our Elements have been flying out the door and have got more on order. This still require lead times for manufacture. Predicting such boosts in sales is sometimes hard. Which is great and we are very stoked people are enjoying the product world wide.

Our bar is NOW back in stock but was another story . We planned to have the v4 bar out how ever were not encountering to have any issues.
During the testing process we found a few critical things that would not sit well with us that we could not produce.
We went back to the drawing board to make it right.
This was the main hold up for the bar.

In the meantime we had to manufacture a few key components to keep the v3 bar going this also took time to receive the parts


If any one has any stock inquires please contact info@switchkites.com we possibly can ship from another warehouse.

Regarding moving forward Switch is going to have some very exciting product coming up . We have been working very hard listening to our customers feed back and aiming to please.

Thank you everybody for your ongoing support and helping take Switch to the next level.

Regards
Felix.
