I will try to keep the location of AIVIA the second kite proa prototype up to date. Any questions please get in touch.

Looking for help with:

  • blogging, video, and photo shooting (if you are passionate about this and would like to help with the kite proa project please email me)
  • boatbuilding (if you want to learn how to build a DIY boat and could imagine helping for a few weeks or for the entire next prototype please email me, no prior knowledge needed)
  • sanding (its just a joke, I guess it takes more than three months before one likes it and I am not there jet : ))
  • kite design and making (if you are passionate about making custom kites with or without experience please email me)
  • sponsors (any sponsor but in particular for epoxy, composite fibers, kites, ropes&lines, tools, general shipping, general engineering, CAD software, or cash would be very much appreciated)
