Because that's what you paid them to put in the "review"? :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :o



You should give it a try but you must know to ride waves so you can judge by yourself.. :wink:

As Dimitri said it is a sold out kite.I m a teamrider/rep for Epic and i was forced to wait 4 months to have a demo kite since there is no one left to buy.

Dont be another hater/basher. :nono: Just try it and write an honest review.Nobody said that it is the best kite that you can buy .

Just try it before you buy another kite.



Ok I have two questions...

1. How much is it? :o 2. Where are the pics of guys unhooked in the waves with it? :lol:

Not sure why I'm bothering to reply 'cos I'm sure your just angling for something more than just an answer but..

1/. Prices on the Epic website
(and ours)
2/. Do many still unhook? Didn't seem like it at Dakhla PKRA at least but seeing how stable it is and how the other Epic's unhook I'm sure it will do just fine should anyone choose too.

I dont wanna go to the epic site. Just tell me how much it is. :roll:

I unhook on waves and am skeptical these flat bridle kites can fly unhooked good. Every one Ive tried was shit for unhooking. And I dont want to start hooking in. Thats like putting training wheels on a mountain bike. :nono:

This is the quality of wave riding from the guy arguing the fine points of kites and waves and is critical of every other kiter on this forum and all the pros.

Oh, that's right...he pulled all his vids because after many saw this one, they realized Bob (Sean) has a very, very skewed image of himself on the water.
Hide the evidence Bob (Sean), wouldn't want people seeing the truth.
By the way Bob, have you seen video of Marc (Windsuks) or Dimitri kitesurfing?
Again, you look like a mouthy ignorant child.

Hello Bob Marley.
Ok give me few hours and I will post some pictures of unhooking on the SURF kite while wave riding in the surf, because this is how I usually surf. I unhook 80% of the time while on the wave unless I'm way over powered. Because this when the true feeling of surfing comes in. But again, pictures won't really show the actually action of unhooking on the wave while the kite just seats there. But the video I am working on will show the true action of the performance of the SURF kite in the waves while unhooking. I will post some pictures while I am finishing the new SURF kite video.
So if you don't mind, give me few hours because I am in the plane on my way back from Puerto Rico.

My question is why humour this guy? One of the biggest complaints about Epic kite threads is the flame wars that take place. Ignore his posts (or the countless others that pop up from time to time) and don't play their games. Keep the content on the kites and who cares what Bob thinks (I don't nor do the majority on these forums)! Putting up videos for this guy isn't going to make a difference.... Relegate him to the useless forum troll list and keep your focus to what matters.

Because if the kite is shit for unhooked wave riding I aint buying one no matter what all the magazines say. :nono: Do you wanna sell a kite or not?
