Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

Just got some EPIC kites...Been kiting for almost 10 years, like to do a little bit of everything: wave riding, wakestyle, jumping, etc... I weigh 170lbs. Typically, I prefer a higher aspect kite, even for wave riding and unhooked stuff....it's just what I am used to....so, my thoughts were to load ...

Re: Why doesnt Real sell Cabrina, Ozone or North etc.

My buddy paid(credit card charged) for a full quiver of these kites from REAL about 3 weeks ago... told him they were shipping....he called last week to check on the status, and was told they don't have the kites yet....should be in around March..... hmmmmm.... starting to sound familiar.....

Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

Got the chance to ride the 10m LE Screamer a few days ago...winds in the 15-18mph range, with an opposing current(adds another 3-4mph of feel to the wind)... Here are some comments: -Construction: Very well made...one of the best I have seen -bar/lines: didn't have the Epic one...so can't comment......

Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

I've been kiting since 2001 and have flown my fair share of kites(not every single brand out there, but probably most of them)......I demo'd a lot of the "big name" brands in 2008 and 09, and ended up settling on the Thruster over them. For me, the Thruster was my favorite kite that I have ridden. I...

Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

In terms of the logistic problems with Eclipse, I agree Dimitri probably wants to get as far away as he can from anything associated with that......but in terms of the quality of the Eclipse kites, how they flew, etc... I don't think it is such a bad idea to still be sort of related to that...? But,...

Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

Dimitri, the kites look great. Glad to hear you are still working with Momi on the kite designs. :thumb: The thruster was one of my favorite kites that he designed, and the Screamer looks liked a refined version of that. Can't wait to try one, so make sure you get some demo's to Florida soon! And po...

Re: Which size Wainman surfboard?

what kind of wind and waves are you kiting in??? Makes a huge difference as to what size board to get. Also, are you experienced with riding surfboards, or will this be your first.....?? Either way, I've tried the 5'8 wide, and I wouldn't through that option out the door just yet.....

Re: Caution Speedwings

Been riding the Caution surfboards for a few years, and just got a new 2010 Caution Trespass that came with these fins. I didn't know what to think at first look. All I can say, is they work. Seems to have more upwind performance, a bit faster, etc... I highly recommend them!

Re: Kiting Mauritius

I have no idea about the wind there, but I'd lean on the side of trying to take all you can to be safe. You can always carry 1 kite in a backpack as a carry-on if weight is an issue....

Re: 09 Best Nemesis HP 12M or 09 Eclipse Thruster 12M

I've spent a good amount of time on both of those kites(12m's too)... Both are really fun kites and you probably can't go wrong with either... Differences between the two: I think the Eclipse Kite has a little less bar pressure compared to the HP...not that the HP has heavy pressure...because it doe...
