for sure megaloops just don't work well on current kites about 7-8m.

40 knots and ramp to jump off and you go so damn high ! great feeling. We don't get waves round here, they certainly help getting another few meters up though.#

nice shots from Greece, I will come over there one day :)

40 knots today, quit lit on the 7m Fuse.. One jump, scary shit.. Must have been around 13m or so, waves were about 4-5 meter on the faces and I flew so high above them...Could look over the dunes... but.... no picture... only the eye witness report of a friend of mine

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.

I dont speak about the gear that i use in topics that are not dedicated to the brand i ride , cause some bollocks will say that i am pimping...

when those bollocks do ,then there is no problem :angryfire:

its better when they start searching and suddently they discover by themselves...and then they say :Ohhhh he is not riding this or that .... never mind he is just another pimper...... :respect1:

but i think you already know :wink:

I would still love to try the Epic kites but the problem is that I can not find somewhere when I can try it for a week of 2-3 so I can get the good winds...
