Greek to english translation: I do not like the fact that the discussion in the strutless kite thread is taking away interest away from my so called "brand", so I am releasing some pictures of a half-assed protype I developed and will tell everyone how strutless kites are a waste of time.

Yes you are right "Malaka" I did not know you spoke Greek. But I think you need to work on your translation because no one will hire you as a translator. What I am saying is that I still like having struts on the kite. But it is a cool concept and the kite flies really nice. You can actually deflate all the struts on your kite and have almost the same feeling then a strutless kite.

P.S. Again these prototypes are not RENEGADES. They do say "Renegade" on them but they are just a concept we are working for the near future. And I had to put something on the canopy so it looks nice and clean.

I dont speak greek but I have a basic understanding of BS which as far as I can tell is basically the same thing.

With all due respect Mr.UKSurf, but if you want to give me some inputs about the EPIC product please do so and I would appreciate that in did. But if you plan to high jack this thread with your childish post then go and do it on the BS topic. Since that's what you have been doing all along with all the EPIC threads. We all know who you are and what your intentions are by now.
:naughty:

All those protos have a 9 printed on them...I would guess that it might possibly have changes to one or some of the following: profile, draft, LE diameter, strut diameters and/or placement, attachment points or a bridle, tip size or shape or angle, aspect ratio....who knows!

Oldnbroken,
The size is the correct one. It is a 9 meter kite, but the rest is just something different.

UKSurf, since you like to interpret things can you please translate for us this email I received from a kiter. I guess this customer is also BSing about the EPIC kites he got.
The kites talk for themselves. All you have to do is take the time to demo them and you will see why people talk so highly about them. But the big question is: "Do you have αρχίδια to demo them".
My UK dealer has attempted several times to get you to try them but you refuse to do so. :roll:

Sick to death!! :accident: :cry:
Do yourself a favor and don't open the Epic threads...so facking simple!!!
You've tired yourself out writing 49 posts on the Epic BS thread.
You have a total of 122 posts since you rejoined the forum under the UKSurf name a year ago.
Why would you spend half your posts in one Epic thread???...you don't even own an Epic kite!!
You have an inexpensive mail order kite, go fly that..and give input about it!!
You can do it on this forum, or on that brand's dedicated forum.
Instead, you come trolling Epic...WHY???
Your derogatory post above has nothing to do Epic's kite development process, it's just negative noise.
Dimitri is entitled to his own opinion about his own strutless prototype, it has nothing to do with any other company.
You're now sitting around making things up that are pure fabrications in your own mind.
You think Epic made strutless kite prototypes for the purpose of directing attention away from a guy in Hawaii......really? Wow. :lol:
