Just got this email from a customer few hours ago.
Holy crap, man. I thought I remembered how the Screamer was when I tried it in Tampa when you came, but I didn't remember well enough! I got it today and had a couple hours to fly today in about 25 knots in overhead waves. I got so much air that I was scared for my life! I remember looking around from up there and seeing how small the waves looked, and feeling like I was flying over in a helicopter. I didn't even think about doing tricks or anything, I was so shocked about being up so high for so long! Give your kite designer a raise! Matt
I sent him an email to find out what SCREAMER he is referring to because I did not see any preview attachment to the email he sent me, but I think it is the S12 or 10 he is referring to.
I just got my Screamer 12 yesterday, and took it out in 25 knots and overhead waves. Holy crap! I thought I remembered it from when I demo'd it a while back, but I was wrong! I was just completely lit. I was ripping upwind with the kite parked really high (at about 11), and just a twitch of the bar timed with a wave was launching me higher than I have ever jumped! It was surreal to be up so high and see these huge breakers look so small, it felt like I was in a helicopter or something. When I was jumping, the hangtime was so good that I was taking the time to raise my head and have a good look around before spotting my landing, which is something I have not often had the time to do with my other kites (12m LF havoc and 16m Cabrinha Switchblade). I was getting so high that I felt like I should loop the kite to avoid coming down too hard (like I do with my other kites), but I was gliding down very softly, and the kite wasn't feeling like it wanted to hindenburg if I flew too far under it. Besides, I don't know if I have the cajones to try a loop just yet. LOL
Anyway, give the designer a raise, because I'm a believer!
