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:


I hope you guys show up and give the Infinity a good unbiased test. It would be a shame to miss the opportunity with Dimitri going to all of the trouble to set this up.

Ed...i do not think it is any "trouble" at all for him to set this up

It is "business" as usual to do demos.....he does come to Florida east coast i think almost every year

It is not a matter of us showing up.......it is more the (low enough) wind that i am concerned about :D

I really hope things will fall into place and get you the almost no wind conditions you are looking for.
If you get a bit more wind than so, take the opportunity to compare upwind/jumping performance :thumb:

Just remember to tie that wind meter into the bridle and record the true speed of whatever wind there is.
Unless you guys want to keep using your internet micrometers instead to quantitate kite performance. :lol:

I'm sure if there is no wind meter present that could be run up a flagpole, Supa will claim that there was a gradient that started just above the highest point that someone could reach with their hands, and that it was blowing 18 knots up there. :lol: :rollgrin:

Actually my session last night 4pm til dark was.....
............. a gradient wind SSE at my 5th street beach in waves !!!

Rigging up my 19 on the ground was 8kn...launched and put kite overhead 12kn...got on water 16kn

To make the wind have even more power the drift/current on the inside was 1kn against the wind

I was depowered 3/4 of the way...and went up in jumps...20ft high

My wife sitting on crossover was shaking her head in disbelief..
.....the palms /sea oats were barely moving :wink:

Thanks for all your hard work to get to our town :thumb:

We have the red carpet roll out for you

Winds are going to be light from S to SSW between 6 to 10kn...i hope it drops to 4kn max :D

Please note that in December a southerly wind is quite often a "gradient" wind in Cocoa Beach

............................. :D .....................................................................................

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).
:thumb:
Great :clap:

Hopefully If I can make it to Delray Beach after my flight coming back Sunday on the 15th
BUT appears to be the wind should be also light according the forecast on Monday
to get a creditable none bias 2nd opinion.
And I'm afraid I'm not that good as Supa EZ Hahaha :naughty:
