Landed in Ft.Lauderdale this afternoon at 4:30 and went straight from the airport to the beach to get advantage of the 15 to 18 knots they had in Pompano Beach.
I was able to pump 3 kites: RENEGADE 13 ltd v3 prototype, SCREAMER 12 & 14. Because by the time I finished pumping the kites I had only 45 minutes of sun light.
Any way at least people showed up to demo the kites and were very happy with the performance of the kite especially the new RENEGADE 13 ltd v3 prototype.
Tomorrow will be heading to CoCoa Beach for more demos.

I can't find the banner now, but what is going on there, haha? Was this on purpose or something somebody caught in a picture on accident? Either way it's pretty awesome! I wonder if it is on Toby's list of 660 airstyle moves? :D

When is the next Epic attack movie? I do love to watch those. Much much better than the light wind videos :thumb:

Edit: Found it!


I think that is called "Ouch". :lol: I'm pretty sure it was on purpose, but it looks kinda painful to me.

Yeah, the Epic Attack vids are... um... Epic! :thumb:

I'm waiting for Toby's vid to come out, and I'm looking forward to Trick of the Week vids!

This video was filmed in Cocoa Beach during our EPIC demos, but the wind did not cooperate as good as we wished but still had a great time in the water.
I think you guys will be very impressed with the performance of the INFINITY V3 kite in such light breeze. :allbegood:
For sure, I could not of done this with out an SUP board and would like to thank the "EPIC BOARD SPORTS" store here in Cocoa Beach FL for letting me borrow one of their 9'9" SUP boards so I can kite in such light breeze.

Even the Ultimate fighter (UFC) "Minotauro Nogueira" from Brazil is loving the EPIC kites.
This is during the EPIC demos in Pompano Beach Florida at "THE KITESURF PLACE"

These are more pictures from the EPIC demo we just did yesterday December 15th in Pompano Beach. We had a great turn out. Even Mr.Rick Iossis showed up and demo the INFINITY V3 prototype.

I broke my leg a week ago so am off the water for a little while, however we have still been down the beach every day there is wind with demo kit and a camera :wink:

It's getting pretty cold here now and been very wet the past few weeks so I'm not missing it quite so bad.

Have an Epic Christmas everyone, even those who just like to sling mud from their keyboards!

Hello Drew22,
Just waiting for the final prototype to test. We did few minor changes to the inside wall of the CL in order to release the send easier. Will keep you guys posted.
windsuks, I feel your pain and wish you a fast recovery :thumb:
