It is easy enough to test "2-4 knots". Just take the kite inside to a big indoor stadium like a school gym or a basketball court, where there is zero knots. Then do a "hot" downwind launch and walk backwards. Normal walking speed is about 3.1mph which equals about 2.7 knots. If you can keep the kite up in the air by WALKING backwards, it proves Dimitri is right. If you can't, you prove PMU and all the doubters.

A light-wind showdown" amongst the biggest claimers (Flysurfer, Epic) and others (North, Core, Slingshot, etc) would be one way to clear this up once and for all.

Ignore the lies. Ignore the propaganda. No kite can perform under 7-8 knots, let alone 2-4 knots.

Are you going to be there as a real judge so the world would know the truth,
or if you won't, are you going to believe it :?:

Since you know the normal walking speed....do you know the walking speed with a "walker"....
....like in this great scene from Office Space movie opening gridlock scene :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey SupaEzi
Great to see 1 person with integrity "Fronting Up" for a Demo compared to the others 'jacking off behind their keyboards...

I just hope that if It is very light winds and Dimitri can ride... you also have enough skill to get goin - or like the rest of the usual suspects - you will have no validity in any of your comments.
Ive seen bigger kites being self rescued as i ride past them and that includes Ozone Airush and Core LWs
So owning a "Ra Ra lightwind kite" means nothing !!!

No worries K2H, SupaEZ can go in as light as wind as anyone I have seen. In the Clydesdale division I am no slouch. As I have stated, if the V3 can get me upwind the same as my Speed 3 21 and my Dyno 18, I will order one on the spot. I will Fly and buy any kite that gets me out to have fun and keeps me OUTSIDE.

So, before someone says I'm comparing Apples to Pizza, then lets ALL quit saying that a Kite is the ULTIMATE for mowing the Grass, Lawn, the Weeds, or anything else.

All this Bullwash gets Old.

If I was anywhere near there I would have loved to come see the light wind showdown. If anyone has a video camera, please get us some evidence! I would love to see not only which kites are best in light wind, but which stay up in the lightest of breezes (to ride through lulls), which ones pulls the strongest, and which ones go upwind best in light conditions?

Happy Sunday Dimitri....i have one more Google map for you....

"GREEK RESTAURANT ZACHARY'S" has close by to it 3 MORE spots we go to on ....
....various wind directions and conditions

Zoom out a bit and you will first see JETTY PARK just NE of restaurant on the surf side

Also just a bit West of restaurant at end of street (Angels isle) we have MANATEE PARK

3rd spot just look straight across the Banana River in WNW corner we have KELLY PARK

Those Banana River spots work great as you can see on SSW- SW-WSW-W (Manatee)
.............................................................................................on E-ESE-SE-SSE (Kelly)

The wind is clean and has a 2 to 3 miles fetch depending on wind direction...

Here is that map...Bon Appetit ! http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&sugex ... IkBEPwSMAA


.............................. :surf: :sun: ................................................. :pump: ................................................
