This is the INFINITY V3 prototype in basically "NO WIND" conditions.
In my opinion, that is just incredible. Show me another kite that can stay up in the air in basically less then 4 knots and be able to ride on the water.
I am not saying it is fun to kite in 4 knots on a SUP but at least you are on the water exercising doing what you love. And not to forget, you are the only one out kiting while every body else is on the beach watching and drinking trying to figure out how is this possible!!!!!. :naughty:



P.S.Yes I am using an SUP board in this video but this is not important. What's important is that the kite is able to stay up in the air in (2 to 4 knots max) while going up wind on a board.

Hi James,

I have ridden bridled kites since 2007. Started on C's 'back in the day' and was happy to see a bridled kite that could depower and relaunch. I have been riding the Renegades for two years now but, did pick up a Judge 8 this summer.

I was apprehensive about the Judge for one reason, relaunch. Memories of swimming like mad to get the kite flipped over kept me from thinking that I would ever purchase one of these. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they small V bridle that the Judge has was enough to make relaunch, while not as easy as a SLE, at least helped a great deal. I purposely put this kite down a few times and it always made it back into the air without swimming and in a short period of time.

The feeling of the kite is a bit different than the Renegades for sure. It surges forward in gusts giving you a lot of speed quickly. The Renegades ease you into it a bit more. The kite depowers well, about 70% when you drop the bar probably. Doing raleys is a little different. The kite sits more forward so, you don't have to depower it to make sure it does not backstall. It also gives you slack once you land. You can control this kite a lot more with your board. IE: stomp on the back of the board and the kite shoots forward with more depower.

All in all, I really like the feeling of it. I am not going to trade my Renegades for all Judges but, it is a very fun kite to have in the quiver.

Hello guys,
Just to show you it's not always HAPPY MONDAY mornings in Epic World, here's an e-mail we received this morning from a disgruntled customer in Australia.
"Hi
YOU RIPPED ME OFF!!!
No bar that I ordered included in package. do you even know how to read a order.
So know I have to wait another week dont I since I dont have a bar, to use my kites.
Ill be putting this on kite forums to let everyone know what a STUFF AROUND you guys are.
Contact me immediatly to let me know if your even going to send it or have I been scammed.
Thanks for the stuff around".

My wife did respond telling him that it was an honest mistake. Our shipping department did a mistake and forgot to add the bar with the kites he bought few days ago. So we are sending him the BAR today via Fed Ex with free shipping.

Thanks for the feedback on the judges and I am very interested in trying out these kites. As for the guy that didn't get his bar.... could you possibly send him some sensitivity pills to go with the bar! I can understand his frustration but first contact the source and see what they are going to do for you. Dimitri.... if only all companies had that level of customer care (and I am refering to companies outside the kiting industry)!!!

Hello guys,
We are working on the (4G) graphics of the RENEGADE 13 LTD V3. Do you think we should keep the same graphics as we have now on the (3G II) models? Or just keep the pattern the same but change the colors around?
Thank you for all your help.

I like the look of the 13 the way it is. I prefer it without all the wave graphics that the other Renegades have. However, if you're making a 4G and it is actually a differnt kite, you may as well make it look different and change up the colors. I always thought Orange and Blue was a nice color combo. Bright green always looks good on a kite also.

P.S. I have a (2012) 3G Renegade 13m LTD V1 (i have only used this kite about 10 times and for very brief sessios) that is in excellent shape, available for $600.
No damage, no repairs or wear on this kite. The bridal lines that the pully rings slide on barley even show signs of wear.

I also have a 2011 Renegade 9m for $500 maybe used this kite 6 times so it is in equally excellent shape as my 13m.

PM me if anyone is interested.
