I was with Dimitri for a demo however there was next to no wind, and I mean NO wind. The kiters standing around laughed when Dimitri said he would put the proto Infinity V3 up...we all agreed it was maybe 3mph tops ( a guy had a wind meter on the roof of his car on top of a pole which was showing 2,7mph max) No one even expected the kite to go up in the sky but it did and just sat there with very little input..happy!
Anyway Dimitri then took a SUP and rode off on it with the kite just parked at the edge of the window, I'm not saying it was easy and very few people could possibly have done this however all who were there agreed it was incredibly impressive to see the kite so stable in such little wind. I know people will rip what I have written apart, but thats how it was FACT
We were all gobsmacked!
......yes he was on a SUP, yes it was flat water etc butit was still increddible how well tghat kite flew. There is video of this which I'm sure will be up soon as!
Keep up the incredible work Dimitri
I believe that all your facts are accurate On my previous article explain in details why the "Hatteras sound" is the holy grail of LW demos Not surprised at all about anything you wrote...and it will happen again and again like that too He does make a kite that will stay up in the lightest of breezes..it is an Epic win win situation

Hello SupaEZ, Wait until you see that video of the INFINITY v3prototype been tested in the ocean this time in very very light winds. I won't mention the single digit numbers you'll be the one doing that. And I won't mention about the current that was working against me. Just wait to see that video.
On another note, thank you for your concern about my Achilles tendon. I am 80% better but still this thing is taking a long time to heal. One of my worst injuries ever. On another note I just pulled my groin 4 days ago playing again tennis . Who said kiteboarding was dangerous. Now concerning duck taping your hands to the EPIC bar so you can try the kite, I meant SUPER GLUING them to the bar......See you soon. Don't worry you are a nice guy and I like you, but very stubborn with all the facts I am giving you.

I was one of the kiters who was there and witnessed the Infinity V3 yesterday. Yes it was only 3-4 mph and yes the V3 flew and just stayed up there without any movement of the kite. I flew the V3 myself and I am very very impressed! I would have to constantly have to move my Infinity V1 to keep it up in that wind....actually, I don't think the V1 would even fly.
I am down here in Hatteras now and we just pumped up and put the V2 and V3 On top of each other and the only difference that I can see is the bridle is moved over closer to the middle of the kite.
Here are some pics of Dimitri riding the V3 and SUP in the 2-4mph:
Dimitri my compliments, really really impressive. Not joking, I've never seen a kite flying with such a flat water, the pictures speak clear and there are witnesses, so let's just stop raising doubts IMO. Can't wait for the video if you're going to post one. I will for sure consider buying the V3 as soon as it will be ready. Who are please the italian dealers?
Ok guys here is the video of the INFINITY v3 prototype you have been waiting for. Once again this is still in prototype mode and I need to test this kite in different type of conditions and in stronger winds 13 to 20 knots and see how it performs. So right now we know this prototype blows every other kite in the market in light wind.
