SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

Good morning kolpamorta. Check the www.epickites.com web site. Not only we have great products but also we specialized with kids equipment. My 10 year old son Cameron Maramenides is the one responsible for the kids program.
You can always email me directly at: dimitri@epickites.com if you have any questions.







and do on......

Maybe a good idea would be to get into contact with Dimitri Maramenides since he Cameron (his son) kiting since young age aswell.

Epic also has several equipment for kids. The Epic Renegade Junior Pro 4m with special bar for kids making it alot easier for them then a normal bar.
Epic also has a 2,5m 4 line LE Trainerkite the Tutor it has a training bar but the Junior bar will fit aswell. I know Dimitri himself rode the tutor in very high winds.

The Promises of the future board is a board specially for kids, you will see Cameron riding it in many pictures. He also rides bigger kites now and ofcourse it depends on the wind alot.

Seems to be the best feeling ever.


dimitri (at) epickites.com to email him.

( i just see Dimitri already replied ^^)
