Hey Blast had a chance to try the renegade 'wave' setting in the surf yet?

Now few people that have the SCREAMER 7, 9,12 and 14 (3G II) and tried the new (4G) SCREAMER 7, 9, 12 and 14 liked it better. Maybe its a mental thing because I told them that the shape is basically the same only the look has changed.

Also concerning the SCREAMER 10 LTD V4. People tried it and really like it. Actually one of the kiters fell in love with it that he asked me if I could sell him the one I have with me.

So again please try the kites before giving your opinion. Thank you.



Man, those Screamers look great. I have to admit they are the best looking kites I have ever seen ... in my opinion.

Very nice work Dimitri, Momi and Jeroen.

Nope, not really had much good swell recently, only small onshore mush tbh.
Today we were teaching using the Renegades (and a few other brands kites) and the students didn't want to use the other kites after trying them all only the Renegades. :thumb:
Hopefully waves this coming week!

Guys if you move the setting from "FREE RIDE" to the "WAVE RIDE" it will make the kite seat further back into the window which makes it ideal for the waves, but you will loose some of the pop and boost.

Today is one of the days that gave me 110% confident that our EPIC CHICKEN LOOP works incredibly well after so many prototypes. I new our Chicken Loop was ready but today was a perfect test that could of gone bad.
I'm in the Island of Paros Greece doing demos every day with lots of people testing the new 4G kites. And the turn out is amazing. As you can see from the pictures the beach is always packed with kiters and windsurfers. So today I had a kiter from Slovenia who wanted to demo the SCREAMER 12 after testing the RENEGADE 11 and see the difference between these 2 models. The wind was very gusty 14 to 26 knots. So I unhooked my SCREAMER 12 and gave it to him and went to my car to get my Camera. At the same time he reached the depower strap to depower the kite and in matter of few minutes because the wind was so bad on the beach I heard him yelling. I turned around and saw the kite falling out of the sky towards the beach and in front of him was a mine field of windsurfs with fins up. So I yield at him while the kite was falling: "PUSH THE CL LOOP AWAY" and sure enough he did and he never got pulled or jerked forward towards the windsurf boards. And since I had the camera in my hands I was able to take that picture of him with a big smiley face.

So today we had an awesome northwest at my favorite spot in Ontario, KP. This is the first chance i had to switch to the wave setting on my 9m 4g renegade. Wow. It is hard to imagine how 4" can make such a difference. This incredible free ride kite suddenly turned into a wave riding maveric. Excellent turning speed, good drift and very predictable. It allowed me to concentrate on the waves instead of the kite. Nice work Dimitri and Momi.

This is the view from above of the RENEGADE (4G) in action.
It looks like people are loving the (4G) RENEGADE models. Just got this email few hours ago from a customer who bought the R11 (4G) 2 weeks ago.
