In the words of Hillary Clinton "what difference does it make" at this point?

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.

OceanAdventures,
You guys should be getting the INFINITY V3 today. So put it to the test like I did in the video you just saw. But the test I did was different kiters on the beach wanted to see how good the kite can stay in the air in practically no wind. So test it in this kind of wind if you want just to get an idea and then wait for 7 to 12 knots and test it again but this time with a normal big Twin Tip or surf board. The best thing would be to test it with the OXYGEN (135x47cm) twin tip board but if you guys have something similar or bigger that will be great.
I've been getting so many responses after posting this video on Youtube & Vimeo yesterday of the INFINITY v3 kite in action. You can see one of the responses bellow. This is the reason why I want you guys to demo the EPIC kites, because I know what the kites can do and in this situation what the INFINITY can do. Or else I wouldn't even send kites for people to demo world wide. So don't be shy and email me so you can see it for yourself because that is the real test. Don't listen to any one just test the kite yourself and then you can make your own decision.

We will be out this Saturday to try again. We also have a cloud 17m on the way and hopefully a Crazyfly cruze 17m also.

Roads are frozen today so unfortunately we are stuck waiting for the roads to thaw out.

Hey, that little snippet about the video was from me. And just to reiterate, I have absolutely no affiliation with Epic kites. I just saw the video and was amazed. I'm the type of guy who will try to go out when no one will even think about pumping up a kite, so I understand how frustrating light wind can be, but I have learned to work with it. Awesome video by Dimitri and the guys down in the Keys. 8)

Great!!!!...putting a Cloud in the mix....just what I was hoping for. I was so impressed by it on Maui, but there wasn't a real test going on. I'm really interested in these results.

Remember ... Oldnb's barking dog never bites ......while barking

Oldnb's dog went to the flea circus ...... and he stole the show

I'd send Oldnb's dog to one of those new pet psychiatrists ....
........except he knows he is not allowed on the couch

(Oldnb's inner dialogue) Dear Lord , help me to be the kind of person my dog thinks i am

Off topic entertainment :dance:
