I think you could have issues from any kitesurf company, even some of the larger ones. Based on the fact that Epic kites are made in the same factory as a number of other brands I just assume they have equivalent build quality. Who knows you may have just been unlucky and got a kite from a bad batch - it has happened to everyone I know so I wouldnt beat yourself up too much over it. Whether Dmitri would admit if there was a serious flaw with a batch of his kites I cant say, but I am fairly certain if you had a problem he would try to help you out - unlike alot of retail outlets that dont give a fck once they have your money.alexeyga wrote:You're absolutely right, however my main rant is that for the same amount of money I paid for Epic equipment I could've gotten gear from another company while having zero issues during the same amount of usage. And b.t.w, so far I had zero issues with the bar which has replaced that Epic's piece of rubbish after the same amount of sessions, and I had zero issues with the Epic's bar since re-gutting it with Switch parts - it just works!
If only for once mr. D actually had the balls to say "Yeah, sorry guys - we have a problem, I'm working on it!"
We had the same conditions Saturday at Manatee park here in Cape CanaveralDimitri M wrote:We had a great day today doing some EPIC demos here in Florida Keys at "Curry Hammock".
The wind was very light but thank God for the INFINITY V3 kite and the OXYGEN (135x47cm) Twin Tip board.
WOW 14Toeside you are on it.....set-up already done !!14ToeSide wrote:I'll try the V3. Let's set it up.
Ok 14ToeSide your wish is my command. I sent you my personal INFINITY V3 kite today because all the other INFINITY v3 kites are out on demos. But like I said on the email the one you are receiving is my personal one and has one of the (Big Inflate/Deflate) valve that I have been testing for 9 months now. But that is the only difference compare to the production one. Enjoy the kite.14ToeSide wrote:

Yes SupaEZ that is what I call "customer service" at its best.SupaEZ wrote:

From your e-mail I just got at lunch....you will have a V3 on the way pretty soon
Hope we can get together and take turns on it
Will be a fun ride with 165 pies & 237 pies using our Nuggets in LW and compare it to our 19's
That's OK ...if you don't mind ..Dimitri M wrote: I forgot to include the (5 meter) set of extension lines that comes with the kite to add to the (22 meter) lines for more power.
