Kurkdroog- Zand skuimer

The cornerstone of the Sendas tribe technology, a self sustaining sand catamaran for long distances across the great salt flats. While the Sendas tribe use primitive materials, their wits and knowledge about the wind and environment create intelligent devices. Using the materials flexure properties, they can create intricate suspensions with no need of complex joints which adds more moving parts. Thanks to this philosophy, this vehicle is easy to maintain by the sailor even though the reserve parts never got touched after long distances.

Original inspiration. The Pacific ocean rowboat design gave the main inspiration for the design and shape. The hydrofoil racer gave ideas for the wings.
