Looks good. Also I do like the spinner being right on top of the CL. Most bars have it way up high above the depower strap, which can be difficult to reach.
That's the thing, all the bars put the swivel out of reach, and they know very well that no swivel will spin freely if it is under load. The load increases friction, which locks the turning motion. I can backroll 20 times in one direction with my 2011 Cabrinha bar and the swivel stays locked in the same position, even though the front lines look like licorice and are probably a couple inches shorter for all the twists. I can't reach it to help it out, so it just stays that way until I do tricks the other way. This gets irritating, because I can't just concentrate on one trick until I get it dialed in, I have to do stuff in the other direction to even my lines up.

I have a (2012) 3G Screamer 10M LTD that is in really nice shape, available for $600. No damage, no repairs or wear on this kite. I have spent way more time on my Renegade 11M, because I am a feeble old man, so the S10 LTD has been mostly in a bag not getting to fly. PM me or E-mail me or send a message to Dimitri and he will pass it along to me.

i seriously don't know where Dimitri finds the time! Great link and good read TomTom. Super nice to see all of the hard work pay off in media attention like this. I mean, the gear speaks for itself and clearly it's getting recognized. I've been riding Epic since ...before Day 1 really, and appreciate that for the short time they've been on the market, they are really on pace than the more experienced brands. Just sharing the stoke is all.
Looking forward to see Cameron make an Olympic run! Dimitri and all... keep up the great work. Love riding the gear!
Hello guys, I am working on a new Twin Tip board "DIMITRI PRO" model with channels on the bottom, but I need your help for the sizing? This is what I have now 137x43cm on the prototype "DIMITRI PRO" model. Do you think it will be better to have 137x40.5cm / 137x41cm / 137x42cm. Right now all our boards are 129x39 for the SPARTAN, 135x41 for the DROID, and 135x47cm for the OXYGEN. Your inputs will be very help full. Thank you for your time and help.
hey Dimitri... what is the goal for this board, and how do you want it to differ from your existing line up? With channels, it sounds like it might be more of a wakestyle board? Compressed foam/wood for the core? Something that really cuts through chop, easy on the landings and edges well, with explosive pop? Am I right?
What about a 132x40 or 132x42. A little fatter, but would give nice pop and smooth riding... Looking forward to seeing where this one lands!
