In all fairness...
People who were watching on the beach....
...... were very impressed "also" by "your" performance with Surf kite

You can make any kite look great because you are so talented on a surfboard

NE to ENE winds are real natural and easy for you since you ride with left foot forward
Yes your kite is impressive.....especially with you at the helm

J'approuve la performance des deux :wink:

not sure what is wrong with the shape...? the shape acually works, did a prototype of very similar shape some years ago (http://www.wingdesignsoftware.net/Amate ... CDELSTAS45)

I'm not saying there is something wrong with it - I'm just saying that this leading edge is very far from the constant curve that Bill advocates. On the other hand, if it is the kinks he is concerned about then this shape actually seems to have fewer of them.

SupaEZ sometimes youre suck a dork...Name one company who is not using top riders to promote its product..In the case of Dimitri he is rider,developer,owner,employee,designer and the most important the labmouse,putting his life in danger most of the times to TEST his kites to the limits exceeding HIS far far away.

And that for giving the costumers a product that will stand in conditions like hell.

But what do you know???

you re just another light-wind romance sailing rider :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: who loves his 17m flying brick!!!

He does not put his life in danger...all the risks are carefully calculated
With his natural talent he can make any kite fly and perform great...nothing wrong with that :wink:
Get your notes in order...i do not ride 17...but 19...and it is a great flying machine..IMO the ultimate

Mr D

Can you post, when you have sent a trial Wave kite to Marc at Blast. As I will make a special trip over to Wales. (only 5/6 hours for me) As I would love to give this kite a try and I have the feeling it will be well worth the trip

:thumb:

Kind regards

Paul

Hello BigPaul,
I will send one of these demos to BLASTKITEBOARDING and other EPIC dealers, once I am happy with the final prototype of the (5/8/12M) SURF kites. Should have something ready by December. Hopefully it's not too cold where you leave.
