Thin Air Sports (TAS) was born from the ashes of First Endeavor Paintball (FEP) back in 2007. Erik Ginorio and Andy “Ydna” DuBuc, the co-founders of TAS, had designed the K1 marker for FEP that was planned to be their new flagship model. Unfortunately FEP shuttered its doors in 2008 and the gun never saw a single paintball.
The guys decided to take their work and to keep going with it, and in 2009 Thin Air Sports was launched. It took 4 years of R&D to reach the point where their marker would finally do what they wanted, which brings us to today.
