I posted this again in the main EPIC thread but since this pertains only to Screamers I will repost it here too.
Just wanted to tell you guys that I F$#@#&* LOVE THE 10 LE. What an amazing kite!
After choosing SCREAMER 14 as my main kite for our SoCal light condition and for my 245lbs, I decided that I'd stick with SCREAMERS to add my high wind kite. The question was if I should go with a 9 or 10LE. 10 seemed a better choice as for my weight I can always use an extra square meter
I just spent two days riding it and I’ve never had so much fun kiting. First day wind was around 18-20kts. I never expected that I'd be fully powered on a 135TT. When I started jumping it was like being in a super fast elevator. Never jumped higher, even on my 14 than on this kite.
This is definitely an advanced kite that you have to have to get used to a little as it really fast (I can compare it to my wife's 08 Waroo 7M).
All I can tell you that in these conditions and my weight I always rode my 13 so it was a really funny feeling to be on the same size kite as guys that are 175lbs
I can't wait to try this kite with a surfboard to see what's the lowest wind I can get going on this kite. I'm pretty sure that it will be around 15-16mph:)
I’m super stoked and I’m rediscovering the sport as it is soooo much different on smaller kites.
Thanks Dimitri and Dale for your help in getting me on these awesome kites:)
ps. I'm not affiliated with Epic, just sharing the stoke on a great product!
