Let us get this clear. Again, I have no issue with D. or his kites. I have an issue with the kiting in 2-4 knots claim. The only other time I can remember responding to anything he said was when he claimed that the best kiteboarding teachers for small kids were other kids from about 8 years of age.soul19 wrote:Tautologies,
I would love to believe that you are impartial but the more that I read your posts it becomes apparent that your are not. You definitely have issues with Dimitri and anything that has to do with Epic kites
Whaoooo I guess every body and his grand mother is watching this annoying thread.Hi Dimitri:
Perhaps you missed this review last October?
Cheers from beautiful Hawaii!
More BS and LIESDimitri M wrote: Plus you can see a 3rd video of the INFINITY V3 having fun on the SUP the next day in lighter wind
This is a good question Tiago1973. I did try our TUTOR 2.5 trainer kite, and the JUNIOR PRO 4 kite but they had a hard time staying up in the air in less then 5 knots on the beach and I had to move the kite like crazy in order to keep it in the air. This is the reason why I never went in the water on the SUP board with them because I knew I would of swim back for sure. But I did try the INFINITY V2 on the SUP board and unfortunately had to swim back.Poster: Tiago1973
yeaha Dimitri, but I wonder if with that SUP within the same conditions you would be able to do the same with a 3m foil or a 5m renegade.. i believe you would, just slower.
and if true what could we conclude about those small kites ability to perform in light wind?
it was a nice video, mad skills, good marketing. but using a SUP.....conclusions are a bit misleading
haha I think you smile will have to compete with minesoul19 wrote:Hey Taut,
No rant on my part but rather looking at things for what they are. Like you I have no desire to attack anyone's personal character and have no ill feelings towards anybody. I have just taken a few moments of my time to point out the obvious flaws in Supa's video. His post have gotten more arrogant but the underlying theme has always been there. I don't know you at all but I have read what you have to say in the past and felt that you are pretty spot on. It just appears to me (and I can also be very wrong) that Dimitri's lightwind claims have irritated you as well. Supa feels that he has proven his point and I hope that he can be content with that. I should know better and stop feeding this thread so in that I appologize. Maybe one day I will make my way to Hawaii and can enjoy your local kitespots.... just look out for a 6ft tattooed pasty Canadian or maybe a 6ft tattooed bright red Canadian.... I am easy to spot as I will have the biggest smile on my face.
More slagging off other people in the kite industry First Blade's light wind kite is no where near as good as your infintiy (which comes from the same designer), next a respected designer hasnt produced a good lightwind kite. Even if your kites were as good as you claim - which they are obviously not - I would not buy them simply because I would not want to be associated with your arrogant behaviour.Dimitri M wrote:With all due respect Mr.Aummm. But why do you think Bill Hansen has not come up with a good light wind kite yet!!!!

....Personally I like your kites, I just don't like the approach as much. That's great you are getting people stoked at how well the kite can fly in such light conditions, but the reality is it was more than 2-4 knots. Maybe it was that light during a lull on the water and that's why you dropped the kite in the water, but there was a steady breeze.
As for the gentleman with the 21 meter foil, he was inexperienced and could barely fly that kite in 8-10 mph on a different day.
I remember that day Chris Moor who is the manager of theKitty Hawk Kites store and probably your boss …. Are you Paulo the one who works and teaches at KHK on RRD!!!
In addition, at a recent visit to Cocoa Beach, Epic's owner claimed the ability to SUP-kite in:UKSurf wrote:Translation: If you question my over the top claims again I will tell your boss who sells my kites
