Happy Sunday again Dimitri...this site is best way to see what the wind will do..in my area

It is updated throughout the day...it only really gives a "general idea" of strength and direction

It is in knots...and also shows in meter the surf height expected

U r correct. However, that seems to be the Claim. Right? Or have I misread? That's possible 2.

Dimitri i have one more thing for you to see

It is my friend's house on the beach 3 blocks south of Cherie Down Park i sent you a Google map of

It shows in real time what the wind "looks like" over the ocean...and sometimes you see who's riding

The wind speed is updated at the top of every hour...
.......the report is from Patrick Air Force base 10 miles south of his place

The water temperature and surf height is from the Cocoa Beach pier about one mile south

I completely agree :clap:
So I'll be watching here the 2 - 4 Kn test fly result and I hope there will be wind for it :peace:
Because unfortunately I'm going for a business trip to Austin next week,
and I really wanted to test it and feel it myself because I have over a 1000 hrs shredding just in light winds.

DrLightWind,
If you can't make it for the EPIC demo this week in FLORIDA (CoCoa Beach) because of your business trip, then I will make sure one way or the other that you get the INFINITY v3 so you can demo it for yourself. Now that's what I call backing up your product a 110%. I am so confident that you will be very impressed flying the INFINITY V3 kite in less then 5 knots. Just make sure to video your expression once the kite is up in the air in (4 to 2 knots).

Looks like i will get to try it if the wind is light in Cocoa Beach this coming week :wink:

I figured out also about my LW shredding time 13 x about 110 hrs per year = over 1400 hrs
So we are both fully qualified ......it seems........ in LW.....to give a report :thumb:
