What is it with these kite companies????

You sell kites right..... lets see video of the kite flying.... no one is interested in jib jab editing, over done graphics and dangling riders.

Show the kite!

See some close up info.... not english but you'll see some details..
We really needed some smaller Speeds!

Walking backwards on the beach while relaunching????
Should not demonstrate relaunching that way... it's impossible to move backwards like that in deep water..... also a bad idea to move backwards in water as it can lead to water getting into the kite.

I have to agree with you FredBGG.

I would certainly like to see a video with a walk around of the kite. (like the Eddy Lansink one, but in english).

Detail the features. Some in flight footage too.

The jacked up action videos are nice and all, but some details too please.

Yup.

Been riding mainly a 6' Doc Lausch. Very nice shape. Only riding strapless with wax.
No pads no straps. Top deck flex makes for a comfy ride and knees feel great even after 5 hours
on the water.

That new Speed looks nice! Simplified design should go down well.

I have been trying to get my hands on one(aviso) but they are not so easy to find around here and a new one is just to expensive..... I have been riding the stretch 6'1" and the 6'5" Fletcher flyer in the tuflite construction. Also strapless unless the Ocean is super heavy then I have a LF 6'0" board with NSI hooks that is close to strapless but also helps in the huge chop.

3 strapless sessions now with the new speed 4 8m and really loving it. The Kite is so smooth and responsive at the same time and the huge depower makes strapless riding extra simple. This kite just eats gust.. Riding on the front and back of Hurricane Sandy we had some great waves and some big wind but it was so gusty.. It was a great test for the new 8m. More soon as I get to really ride the speed 4's at their full potential......

Realy sounds like a great kite. I have had only Tube Kites so far, so Im wondering what would I miss the most?
I like cruising, wave and easy popping and jumping.
I tried a 19m Speed3 once and I like the solid pull but i didnt like the stalling.
Anybody out there riding Tubes and Speed4?
