11-14 knots and way over powered, are we talking about small people or does someone need to calibrate the wind-meter/brain??
Yes 2 of the riders that demo the INFINITY V3
that day were 136 lbs and 145 lbs. Before testing the V3 INFINITY
, these 2 riders where on the SCREAMER 14
kite and were going back and forth in 11 to 14 knots but wanted to test the INFINITY V3
. So they did for 20 minutes each.
When they came out of the water they had the Depower Strap pulled all the way down in order to depower the kite. They did like it but it was too much for them in this kind of conditions. The only guys who had a great time was Rick Iossis and another kiter who were around 180 to 190 lbs and they both did enjoy the kite. Rick Iossis words when he came out of the water were: "Whaooo that kite is very smooth and fast and not a lot of bar pressure on your arms compare to what I ride.....
So again this is the reason why the INFINITY V3
is still a prototype because I want to make sure that you can hold it all the way up to 18 knots with no problem like the V2. So I am still working on it.
Oh by the way your friend David who is our Brazilian EPIC dealer showed up to the Epic demo yesterday in Pompano Beach and was able to try the INFINITY V2
in (11 to 14 knots). The reason he did not use the V3 INFINITY
kite is because it got too late and I already had packed all the kites except the INFINITY V2
. He did demo the INFINITY V3
during the EPIC dealer's meeting we had in Hatteras this fall and was very impressed with its performance.
Maybe you should ask him what he thought about it next time you see him. . And in the same time maybe demo the INFINITY V2
when he goes back to Brazil since you have the INFINITY V1.
