We have been having an incredible turn out with the demos we are doing here on the island of PAROS (Greece). It is amazing how good the forums work. You won't beleive how many people learned about this EPIC demo here in Paros and now I don't have enough kites to demo. I brought 17 kites and 3 boards with me and have left only 13 kites because few people that demoed the kites loved them so much that they wanted to buy them on the spot so they can kite here in Greece before going back to their country.
The funny thing was that when the wind died from (18 - 24 knots to 6-11 knots), I decided to take the INFINITY v2 out for a spin on the OXYGEN v2 board. I was the only one kiting for at least 20 minutes, then I saw a bunch of people waiting on the beach to demo it. So I had to come out and let the INFINITY and OXYGEN board do their work. The next day I had one of the guys that wanted to buy the INFINITY v2 and the OXYGEN v2 board to bring them back to Switzerland where he kites because he has a Core 17m kite and he doesn't like it as much after demoing the INFINITY v2.

P.S.
Any way you can see more pictures of the Demos in Greece on the demo page under "Greece. Epic Demo days 2012"

I just heard from my Kite designer Momi, that the RACER 11, 14, 17 have been taking 2nd, 4th and 5th place in some competitions they have been doing in Israel. Way to go guys.

The RACER have been a great success in the demos here in Paros "Greece". It is just a different kite. People can't beleive the power it generates once it starts moving.

Tried the 11 RACER in Paros - Hellas the other day. Have noticed 3 things. 1) This kite HAS POWER. A lot of power and its fast. 2) Its dedicated for the expierencer racer. 3) It needs a bar with MORE depower . If it was CAR it would be a Ferrari. Period.

Ellinas,
Can you go into more detail about how the kite flys? What board were you using? Where in the window did it sit once parked. Did it seem to want to pull you with the wind or along the wind? How was the relaunch? Did it have a tendency to over fly?...etc

Yes please Mr. ELLINAS can you elaborate more on the RACER 11 that you demoed. What you liked and what you did not like about the kite. What other kites have you tested to compare the RACER with, and so on...
Thank you.

P.S. These are few more pictures of the demos we did again yesterday in Paros "Greece". I just hope it is not windy tomorrow. We all need a break.

I tried the 11 racer in totally under powered AND super gusty conditions. For sure its not an easy kite. I ride and am used to Cabrinhas. I also find that the Edge is a super easy race kite with easy handling. On the other side the RACER isnt an easy kite BUT it feels so full of energy that i didnt feel on other race kites.
In Paros i didnt have my raceboards (aguera 69 & royal stealth 70) so i had to use an old aguera 59 or something with....4 fins.
So as u understand i couldnt make the most out of it but i understood one thing : the racer is a super high aspect racing maschine flying at the edge of the window creating loads of power that i didnt feel in other racing kites (my opinion). Most important Dimitri:
the racer NEEDS another bar with huge depower.

Thank you for the bar input Mr. ELLINAS.
Will add an extra15cm of throw on the Race bars. But yes it is crazy how much power these RACER kites generates especially from the apparent wind.
Thanks.
