JamesVegas,
I just gave Marc (2) 8 feet EPIC stickers to put on each side of your van. So now you can ride NORTH kites with an EPIC van :thumb:

I was on the Prototype Screamer 10m and then swapped kites on the water for a 12m GTS and then straight back onto the 10m Screamer after this.

It was immediately noticeable the lack of feedback at the bar, it felt pretty vague but the real surprise was the lack of power, the Screamer 10m felt way more power than the 12m Core!? The Screamers offer more bar pressure but for a reason.
So Marc...what's the low end like on the V4 Screamer 10M LTD? Less or more than the 3G Screamer 10M LTD?
Dimitri says way better top end range on V4. The range of my S10 is always surprising.

I got to try the 4G in a range of winds....it maybe does not quite have the same low end that the 3G has but when the wind picks up it really comes alive and has a way better high end than previous model.
I tried it in maybe 15kots not so much tricks but from about 18-20knots up it kicks in and keeps on going and going in the low 30's

Similar bar pressure feel etc
Awesome kite!

I was at the SBC kite/board test the other day in Hatteras. I had the prototype SCREAMER 10 LTD (v4) out in the peak winds( 18-25k). Boost machine! Wow, that's what I said when I pulled the trigger. Super nice package, good bar feed back and perfect turning speed. I was impressed. It was really fun to kite with Dimitri, his passion and skill are unmatched. He actually said he was over powered on a 12m, he's getting old. Lol.

Big wave...you gonna stock epic this year? Would be good to have them available to the GTA community.

I do like a nice low end on my kites... Not sure if its an ltd this year of the 12 meter. Probably the limited edition. Dimitri, do they come with oxygen masks? That'd be funny.... An oxygen mask for e kite and the spartan outfit for the boards.

Currently we have no plans to sell Epic. It was great to test a different brand that we don't sell. We have a solid line up with Cabrinha, Slingshot and Airush kites and boards. Add to that Shinn and Nobile Boards. I wish we could add more but it's not in the cards. Kitecave in Orillia is stocking Epic and doing a great job promoting the brand.

These pictures were taken today Oct 28th from day 2 of HURRICANE SANDY here on the Outer Banks NC "USA" in (40 to 60 +++ mph) winds. Decided to try the JUNIOR PRO 4 but because of the strong gusts, decided to pump the TUTOR 2.5 m trainer kite.
After 40 minutes of fighting with the wind, sand and rain decided to abort testing the TUTOR in these conditions. I had such a hard time setting up the kite on the beach and could not even stay straight, plus my body was getting blasted by the sand like I never felt before. This was one of the smartest moves I ever did. Now I know what "Hell" feels like. So don't mess with mother nature and know your limits.
:angryfire:
