Description 

The Genki is a thin version of the standard Genki from the 1980's. It is inherently a very stable platform. This version has no keels which enables clean uninterrupted designs. It is using a double dihedral to give the stability. The kite is best in light to medium winds. 

Robert has developed a technique to transfer large prepared appliqued panels onto the main sail by a series of templates and datum points.
It is a very easy and functional process that can be readily used elsewhere.
