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 v3 prototype 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.
:allbegood:

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:

DJ A-Ron....you are correct V2 vs V3 side pumped on land.....difference about bridle more central

You can see clearly what it does to the "V3 kite when flying" in very light wind

The resulting flatter leading edge curve of the kite exposes more projected area to the wind

SUP kite flying in hatteras pool creating 2 mph of apparent wind + 5mph "in kite" = 7mph power

Resulting in 6 knots parked power......that's very good low end...stayin upwin...no sinin..

The closest thing to......... landboardin.....leave your wheels at home...water is more fun

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.

All right...got a few comments..but first this

Dimitri don't you think that your water & wind location where you do all videos for LW is unique?

I think it is...and a disclosure should be in fine print...if tried by anyone else in other waters

Results will vary...results not typical...Hatteras environment is unique..like in a laboratory !

Now my comment....you think you know that your kite blows away all LW kites out there

Once again i do not see in your water anyone else but you....because Hatteras=Epic

In my waters in 8 knots...SP3 21...Dyno 18...Core XR2 19...would all blow by your kite

I will give you that...it does fly overhead in very light wind...but more power..in 8 knots..no way
