How we ended up building fins
It all started 52 years ago when a legend was born… Wait, wait, this is just Ananda trolling in Berci’s area, I’ll let him type now.
Underwater depths have lured me for over 40 years. As an underwater orienteering diver I have attended numerous competitions. Due to the special requirements of our gear, and the complete lack of local financial support in socialist Hungary, we were forced to develop and build our own equipment to even try to compete with the greats. We displayed death-defying courage as we sliced fibreglass sheets day in and day out. We looked to one of our friends as a demigod when he got his hands on a half bottle of industrial Tip-Top rubber glue.
My next passion took me out of the water and straight into the air. In 1994 a new type of sport began to test its wings. It went by a few different names: some called it banana kite, some said it’s a hang glider. It was around this time when aerodynamics really started to interest me. When I became a sailplane pilot I started tweaking my own plane by putting winglets on the then 20 year old Jantar Standard.
As an industrial designer and CNC machinist gaining experience in the field of composites, every condition was given for me to do what I felt was necessary. In my opinion, the “baker’s shovel” era was over. After enduring years of hard work, disappointment, failure and numerous „it’s almost working” prototypes – we’re ready! I’m not going to lie, I didn’t enjoy every second of it, but we did it, it’s finished!
