Really? I'm the only one who thinks this kite looks a lot like the 2010 helix?
It was a great kite back then.

Really? The profile is completely different!

Can t wait to put my hands on one of those!!!
I could fly the prototypes last summer and was already reaaly pleased with the performance of this kite!

I like the idea of having the choice between the quick an normal valve!!
I can also see some new nice looking one pump hose protectors!
Looks like a great well finished product! And not talking about the super handy Multiple pocket Kite Bag!!

Good Job!!!!

Great to have the option for big inflation valve and standard now, when these are fitted to the Screamer ill buy a quiver .

wow that is a strange looking kite!

It'd be interesting to get a little description from the designer (momi??) as to what exactly he was thinking with this design.

Good question Mr.Westozzy.
The SURF kite was designed for only one purpose which is wave riding. But I also found out that is is an amazing kite for teaching because of its stability and relaunchability. Now concerning the jumping part, it does jump but not as good as the SCREAMER, RENEGADE, or JUDGE kite. So if you are looking for an all around kite then the RENEGADE will be your best choice.

Hello guys,
I am at the EPIC factory in China right now finishing the first production of the SURF kites.
It looks like we should have these kites ready to the public earlier then I thought. From what I see we should be able to release these kites by the end of January beginning of February. So if you are interested please get in touch with your nearest EPIC dealer or directly to our www.epickites.com web site.
