Ed and Bonnie Wright
Learning the intricacies of the parafoil at the knee of Mayor of the Green, George Hamm, Ed and wife Bonnie soon refined a parafoil design for the strong, steady winds commonly found on European beaches. Collaborating with Reza Ragheb and others, Ed and Bonnie made hundreds of 50 sq. ft. foils. Together, they showed that the foil could even be made in miniature; 1 sq. ft.
