Ozone News:Stefano Gigli - Escape New Zealand

Written by Ozone on . Posted in Industry News

Tolkien wrote many times that Middle-earth is in our Earth. The books that he wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings take place entirely in Middle-earth for the fictional town that is New Zealand and my vision is to be the world’s most beautiful land I’ve ever seen.

Many people ask me to tell New Zealand, few have perhaps felt that the land is not narratable, but you can only live, observe or cross, and often only after when you realise that the world is beautiful but this part of the world is more beautiful, I would call Uneven..

It is in this middle ground on the other side of the world live and work two friends and fans of Flight, Kite, surf and sup. Two friends who have made history in paragliding and that are drawing the boundaries of the world Kite at 360°. Along with their work two other friends with whom they share, make and savor the success of their ideas.

This group of friends working in a small town of only 3,000 people South of Auckland on the coast of the Tasman Sea, a village considered and known throughout the world as one of the best places in the world where the waves serfare left. This is called Raglan Vilaggio and hosts the Farm Research and Development of Ozone Kites.

Matt Taggart, Robbie Whittall, Torrin Bright and Andy Banks are artists who make Raglan kites for our amusement among the best products in the world, where research and development are the only real marketing of a young and capable of abutting among the world leaders in the industry of the kite.

Spending time with this group has been a time of growth, unique and unforgettable experiences that gave me the opportunity to learn more about the design processes of Ozone kites but to know New Zealand in its true essence.

In Raglan you can do everything in one day, work, flat water sup, sup in the waves, surf, kitesurf freestyle, race, wave and Landkite with the bike or buggy, paragliding and wakeboarding … Raglan offers all of this.

The conditions are perfect, so perfect that it is not in the main tourist routes purely fashion for the people of the kite, perhaps because it is too far? no .. I do not think even with only 1 day of flights its really a paradise for our sport.

For everything else there is “mastercard”

I have nothing to tell in what I have just started my journey and I do not know when it will end..

Keep in touch
