I think most brands try to avoid trying to overselling their products. I honestly dont think it has a positive effect on a brand.

There probably has been too much Epic talk on this forum, but I think that what people saw at Cocoa Beach was positive for both Core and Epic. IMO it was a lost opportunity that other kite brands were not involved.

Also, it is just a matter of opinion, but for a business "overselling" is like having too much money. Does that really ever happen?

Now what if...and i say what if... the kite stays up in 4kn steady / 4.6mph..because of design.... :thumb:

...and about every few minutes or so the wind drops to 2kn....
.....for 2 seconds max... then back to 4kn ...........how about then......does the LW claim hold water?

Overselling? what does that mean?

We have to keep in mind who started this thread and why.

It's a shame they don't take him up on his offer... could potentially put all this to rest... but then that would be boring :)

Guys, I just want to let you know that I am not interested in quantity but QUALITY. This is also one of the reason why we are very strict with our EPIC dealers. I rather open a store that will sell 20 kites a year then opening some one else who says he will be selling 100 kites a year. The more kites we sell the harder it is for me to check on the quality and the customer service. So I rather stay small and make a great product and this is what EPIC is all about QUALITY, PERFORMANCE and CUSTOMER SERVICE.
This is what separates us from all the other kite companies. And this is the reason why we are doing so well.

On another note, we at EPIC kites would like to wish you MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR. Be safe out there and hope to see you in the water soon.

That's just WRONG!!!!! :-?

I hope you get some pajamas for Christmas (and wear them for next years tree decoration).

Incidentally, I have heard that glitter is the herpes of craft, so I hope whatever Christmas tree decoration that is, is not glitter coated. :lol:

Merry Christmas :D

Supa, you have to re-evaluate your orientation after a comment like that. :lol:

It was messed up for D to post that, but it was beyond the pale for you to complement him on his "ornaments". :peng:
