The paragliding department has been going for 6 years with a team of currently 120 people. Using the German engineered Duerkopf, Adler and Pfaff machines, Aqua Dynamics can absolutely guarantee an uncompromisable high quality of 100% due to the nature and risk of the sport. It is a department founded on perfectionism and accuracy. Line checks are carried out with a Laser machine and each glider is inflated before being shipped to the customer.
Team Leader : Mr. Nimal
Mr Nimal came from the Sri Lankan Air Force in 1996 where he was an Aircraft Technician. Starting out as a Product Manager for stunt and trainer kites he took a break from Aqua Dynamics for a year. Spending that time as an Airline Technical Data Controller in the Maldives he returned in 1999 and has never looked back.
Heading up the Paragliding, Kitesurfing and Tent departments Mr Nimal is vital part of the Aqua Dynamics functioning. He is proud of everything that he and his team have achieved, developed and implemented into the factory.
Production Manager: Ms. Roshana
Ms. Roshana came to Aqua Dynamics 20 years ago as a trainee and has grown to be one of the 2 key parts of the slick operation that is the Kite Department. Starting out in pattern making, sampling and production at a time when kiteboarding was a new sport, there were no team leaders with knowledge of the product so she always had to think for herself and implement her own solutions. Now, heading up the kite department she is proud of her achievements and is able to pass on her years of experience to help others grow a refine their skill and knowledge base.
