That must tell you we are doing something right.

Look at the FERRARI cars, they have a small market share but again every body wants a FERRARI correct?

SupaEZ,
Please keep this thread clean from all your meaningless posts. If you want to contribute in giving us some inputs on the SURF kite please be my guest and post something intellectual like most people have been doing. But if you want to post childish things like the post you just posted above, then please go to your amazing thread called "Epic Infinity & Bullshit Light Wind Claims" and "The world demands more Epic teaser threads" which has been contaminated from your annoying posts because you don't make any sense. But please keep this thread clean with creative feed back.
Thank you very much for your time and for understanding.

Hey Richswing... I think i know what you mean - remember the first part of the strut from the L/E was not attached to the canopy, but after the bend was... So under pressure you get the foil shape. I had the 10m thruster - that one size was a ledgendary fast big air kite.
How aerodynamic does a kite need to be for a low wind speed of 15 - 25 knots ? Theres your answer. Hercules aircraft have a big ass wing... thats not expected to reach mach 9 like the latest supersonic jets.

If I were to compare EPIC to a car company it would be:

UKSurf has it warmed up enough for you to kite again, we offered to send you a kite to test last autumn but I seem to remember you were going to wait till springtime, well let us know if you are and maybe we could come visit with a few Epic kites so you can try one!?

Thanks for the offer but I am not interested in this brand, their over the top marketing claims have seriously put me off. But if you want to come and visit me sometime you are welcome to do so

No problem,
But why spend your time and energy against them, just ignore the threads if it annoys you so much, it's a shame as this thread was going well and now because of one two individuals is being spoilt....
Supa please please keep your weird ramblings to the other thread and leave this bs free .....and for those that genuinely wish to contribute to a Surf kite.

Where are you based, we do intend to travel around the UK a bit more this year if at all possible...in between lessons/sales it can be hard though. It would be great if you did at least try the kites but no sweat either way.

Once again Mr.UKSurf.
If you are going to contribute in some of your ideas about what a wave kite should have please do so on this post, but if you are going to act like a 5 year old child please do it somewhere else.
This is an email I got from a kiter that has shared a lot of feed back about what the SURF kite should be. He has nothing to do with Epic kites. Actually he rides for another kite company and loves his kites.
I hope this email gives you a better idea of what the majority of the people think about posters like you. I have few more emails like this one from anonymous kiters that have nothing to do with Epic kites and I can share these with you so you get a better understanding.
So please do me a favor and send me some ideas instead of wasting your time writing negative comments with out having even had the chance to try an Epic kite.

P.S. Also I don't think it's a good idea for you to demo an EPIC kite because you won't be the same person after that, plus you will have a different opinion about the EPIC kites. I have seen it in person after letting few kiters that were very negative against EPIC kites testing the kites for the first time. Guess what happened to them!!!!
:naughty:

Thank you.

Very clearly, not true.
Why a handful of malcontents, bother to spend so much time and energy in the Epic threads, would be a big mystery...if we were to believe the stories they tell.
Obviously, these people have an interest, but very seldom is the real one revealed openly.
If kiters who claim what you claim, spent more time providing feedback to the designer of your kites of choice, maybe you would be a happier bunch, and your kites would fly better. :wink:
