Hey noël,

With 15 years of knowing someone, wouldn't this have been better served by a PM? Maybe you have expressed your concerns that way and didn't come to a mutual understanding than fire away! If you haven't than I, for one, wouldn't have been pleased that you didn't come to me first! I am hoping that with a history that long you at least had enough courtesy to do just that!

All been done. Actually, Dimitri posted something on Facebook about the demo the day before and I and the shop got blown off. That was the last straw for us.

Hey Noël,

Too many times people just react without actually addressing the issue with the person. It is frustrating to have something done to us but often the intent wasn't malicious in behaviour. We are all on either end of the stick at times! Takes true character to bring your issues to the person irregardless if they acknowledge what they have done or not! In the end I hope that the two of you find a resolution that both parties feel good about! Take care man and the best to your shop this 2014 year!

These are some pictures of few kiters demoing the INFINITY V3 in very light winds. One of the kiters who was a girl who was testing the kite could not believe she could kite in such light winds and enjoy it. She never tried an EPIC kite until that day and was very impressed compare to the brand she uses. (video coming soon)

What I liked about the other test was the fat guys... I've eaten heavier steaks than that guy.

Some mics are worse than others for picking up the wind...

NOISE REDUCTION. WHEN FILMING OUTDOORS, MAKE SURE TO PROTECT YOUR MICROPHONE EVEN IN 5 KNOTS
Is is just me , or does that wind seem a little noisy for less than ten... just saying

Hello matth
One of the Canon G15 cameras I was using did not have a case that protects them, so the microphone was totally exposed to any thing that hits it. Even your breath can make it sound like 30 knots. I am sure you know what I mean. Their was barely any breeze out that day as you can see from the video, so I did not have any reason to use a case to protect the microphone on this camera which I never use for videos. But did not realized it will make so much back ground noise even in 7 to 10 knots. This is why you don't hear that noise in some other footage, because I was using my GOPRO camera with its case until the battery died. So I took the Canon G15 camera to continue filming. So if you know about cameras and have filmed before with out protecting your microphone, 4 knots of wind can give you this type of noise as a background. This is the reason why film makers use a type of protector on their mics to reduce the noise. But if you are in door, then no need to protect your mic because there is zero breeze coming across the mic. Personally, I only use the case that the GOPRO comes with when filming outdoors in order to reduce all that windy noise.
