Gear: SCREAMER 7/9/12/14 for Free Style. Not to forget the SCREAMER 10 LTD for my one go kite. SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves. Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

Hello Tone, Sorry to hear that. Will try to get some videos but still you need to try it to understand what people are talking about. I should have the production in by the end of February. By then I will be able to have few more demos on hand and send few demos in Europe. So keep in touch. My email is email@example.com In case you have not seen this video. This is the INFINITY I was testing in 7 to 11 knots with the OXYGEN light wind board.
I thong Zephir is still one of best compromises in light wind between pull, speed, and bar feeling. there would be other good inflatable project but some of them are simply too heavy to fly as good in wind around 10kts
let's see the new incoming (SS Turbine, North Dyno,and some more)
I think there's around here a post about kite weight and weight/surface ratio. if I remember well Zephir is 4,1 Kg that's a good result for a 17m inflatable kite. Ozone light 14m (2009?) should be only 3,1 Kg
I'm quite sure that my Kaiman advance 2010 10m (great kite!) is more than 3,5 Kg, for a 10m is ok but a 15m with the same construction in my opinion would be heavy
PS: weight here are kite only
PPs: this is the post, would be interesting to fill in the form with ather lightwind kites (Big Mama. large Rhino and Rebel, Kahoona's, ecc ecc)
I think Airush will also be major players in the Light wind area. The lithium 13m LW and 15m Lw are amazing. I was on the 13 LW for maybe half of last year season and it was one hell of a machine.
The 15m One will also be a great light wind kite. I haven't tried it but I have tried the 12m and I was able to ride in sub 10 knots weather on my big sector 60. The one is so light it just stays in the air no matter what. Also it is really fast for its size. The 12m felt like a 9m.
I can't wait to try the 15m.
PS: one thing for sure, we have so much choice and nowadays there is not really any bad kites. Bad choice yes but bad kites not too much.
