I think you should morph the Greek flag into another variation of the epic logo...

The flag already kinda looks like a capital E.
Especially on the black kite. Just drop those bottom few stripes of the flag and it'll be a combo of the flag and the E... I think It'd look pretty cool!

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!

OXYGEN V2 Twin Tip light wind board.
If you are looking for a light wind board and you are interested in having fun on the water and not just going back and forth, then the OXYGEN v2 is the board you have been looking for. But you want to hurry because they are flying off the shelves!!!!
