Tony Suits releases new wingsuit: The Foghead

Written by Kolla

From Tony Suits:

We are proud to announce the release of our newest wingsuit: The Foghead.

The what?
Let us explain. “Neblekopf” directly translated from German is “foghead” (Nebel = fog, Kopf = head). We chose this name from the Name That Suit competition, as a tribute to our dearly departed friend, Jeff Neblekopf.

Jeff was more than just a friend. His help at TonySuits was invaluable. Working closely with Tony over 10 years, Jeff assisted in the designing and development of wingsuits.
It was during this time that he discovered the German meaning of his last name, which quickly became an affectionate nickname, and then the name of the studio where he showcased his artwork.  And now the name of our newly released intermediate suit.

Tell me more about this new wingsuit?
R2B2 was the prototype, a wingsuit with BIG performance in back and belly flying.

We would like to give a big thanks to:

  • Blue Skies Mag for hosting the ‘Name That Suit’ competition
  • All the people who submitted name suggestions
  • The winner of the naming competition, Aaron Webb
  • Matt Higgins, for providing the comp award, his new book, Bird Dream

Jeff was a talented and enthusiastic individual who lives on in the hearts of many, and it is our hope that this tribute honors him and his wife Sita.
