So In few words once we are done testing the V3 prototype, the INFINITY V3 production should be even better then the V3 INFINITY prototype that people have been testing. Don't you agree Mr. toyletbowl

Thing is, making a big deal about a kite being a prototype and not set in stone is almost pointless. It's not like in a couple months of refining the newest model it's going to turn from a Ferari into a 1975 Pinto. Would it be fair to say, Dimitri, that any changes in the V3 are going to be geared into making it better at being a low wind kite than it is now? If yes, than comparing it to a current production model is perfectly fair.

What I want to know is how the Infinity demo went with Supa EZ and 14Toeside?

Hello Oldnbroken I have not been on the East coast of Florida yet for the EPIC demos. Will be conducting these demos starting December 11th to the 18th from Coco beach all the way down to Miami. But our next demos will be in the Keys at Anne's Beach depending the direction of the wind on December 1st & 2nd.

Testing the INFINITY V3 prototype in stronger winds to see its performance. Since we know already how good it performs in (2 to 4 knots) on the SUP and (6 to 9 knots) on a Twin Tip or Surf board.
Did few adjustments on this newer V3 prototype to improve its high end performance, and so far so good. :thumb:

Hey Dimitri,

Would it be possible to have multiple attachment points on the production model V3 so one could adjust the bridle connection points to broaden the kites wind range? I like how my buddies Wainman kites have the adjustments.

Hello Mr.Dj A-Ron,
All my prototypes have at least (12) different attachment points on the LE, in order to us to find which one is the best one for the production run. I did this also with the Screamer 10 ltd (2011) and had (3) different type of attachment points on the LE, but then had few customers playing around and made the kite not fly as good as I wanted. So we stop doing that. But who knows maybe I might add (1) extra attachment point on the INFINITY v3 and this will give it more up wind capability but not as stable depending what you are looking for.

This is a kiter who drove from Canada for some warm weather and had the chance to demo the INFINITY V2 kite in (9 to 12 knots) on a prototype Twin Tip board 137x43cm few hours ago, here on the Outer Banks NC "USA".
Any way getting all the gears ready to fly to Ft. Lauderdale for the FLORIDA demo starting tomorrow.

This video was filmed in Cocoa Beach during our EPIC demos, but the wind did not cooperate as good as we wished but still had a great time in the water.
I think you guys will be very impressed with the performance of the INFINITY V3 kite in such light breeze. :allbegood:
For sure, I could not of done this with out an SUP board and would like to thank the "EPIC BOARD SPORTS" store here in Cocoa Beach FL for letting me borrow one of their 9'9" SUP boards so I can kite in such light breeze.
I was barely moving on the water until I was catching these small waves. The video will give you an idea of the conditions and how much fun I had on the SUP board.

The final kite could be better or worse. If the prototype is made really light and it falls apart after a month, then the designer has to add reinforcements and the kite gets heavier. Not sayin that is or will happen here, but its definitely a possibility.

Look at the Best Hellfish. Apparently it was a great prototype, great for lightwind, but the things blew apart!

Hello Mr.davesails7,
Nothing will change on the final production INFINITY V3. The final production will have the same material, same reinforcements, same everything then the "Yellow" on that you see. Actually I already have the almost final production one ready with me and it is the same one then the "Yellow" prototype that you've see on the videos and pictures, but the color combinations are totally different then the Yellow color or the blue one from the V2. Actually some people have seen it already in action during the NAPLES Florida demos I did 3 weeks ago.
The reason you are not seeing the INFINITY V3 graphics right now is because I just want to keep it a secret. Why do you think I have not release the video I did in Naples during the light wind demo!!!!
