Did you know that Cath built the first CR Mesh Quad? It's true! 

Over the years, she's focused her attention on the shop, but she never forgot how much she enjoyed working with ripstop!

During the winter of 2020, Cath started to play with an idea, and this is the beautiful result! The CR Hata. With a design based on the compass rose and a passion for art history, she's put a compass rose in a stained glass effect on a 27"x28" Hata.

Details about the kite: 

It's a high flyer with a 10' black and white fuzzy tail included. It's a rock solid flight with the tail attached, perfect for a beginning. If you remove the tail, you've transformed the kite into an advanced kite that can be flown as an International Style Sport Kite. (Contact us if you need a translation for what that means!)

Recommended wind range is roughly 3-25mph, although we still need to test the highest end of that range! We don't recommend flying it in "kite breaking" wind, but we think it'll be fine in 25ish. If you break the kite in high wind, please advise us -what was the wind blowing? The first person to break the kite due to high wind will get full bragging rights in this space! Good luck! 

In the bag: kite, tail, 50# x 300' dacron on a d handle, kite sleeve
