Pump me up wrote:"Epic goon squad" ( :P -thanks Laughingman!) insists it has the "power of a 19m" and can perform in < 7 knots ("5 knots - no way!" or "2-4 knots on a SUP").

Pumpy ........... :pump:
:thumb:

So it would seem to be more desirable to replicate by others the 2-4 knots SUP-ing and less psycho by the "Epic goon squad" :lol: :jump:

The INF V2 (mystery size between 16 &17) low end range on Epic website is 6kn

The RIOT XR2LW 19 low end range on Core website is also 6kn

I can't even get on a plane...stay upwind...on my supa dupa cheating board :lol: and longer lines....

.....unless the wind averages 8kn (7-8-9kn)...and i weigh 75kg......so no go for me in 6kn or 7kn avg

INF V3 will probably have a lower low end of 5 knots on their website when the kite is released

Core offers 3 clearly printed sizes for their LW specialized German designed machines

Small at 15m2......medium at 17m2......and large at 19m2

We did the side by side testing in less than 10kn....and nothing surprised me

It all went down as i expected it...because it did not have the power of a 19 ...as simple as that

.......... :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :thanx: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf: :surf:

Hello Peter aka (Laughingman),
I just found out that the INFINITY V2 demo kite that I am expecting this week from a customer won't be here to send you because he decided to buy it. My wife just informed me about this few minutes ago, and I was unaware of this transaction since I was expecting that demo to come back this week.
So I am going to send you my own INFINITY V2 complete with bar, it has been used 3 times. And will ship it to you today so you can have it for your Cuba trip on the 26th of January. Once you get back from your trip please send it back to me as soon as possible because I have other people wanting to demo it.
I got all your shipping info and will be sending you the FED EX tracking number later on this afternoon. Have a great trip and be safe.

P.S. Mr.Pump me up you are next.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: the dog video is great. But guys please keep World War III out of this topic. This doesn't give us any information about this topic. Again this is about "Epic Infinity & Bullshit Light Wind Claims" and not a contest about each others caricatures.
I strongly believe you guys need to go kiting more often especially in stronger winds.

that's a pretty funny video oldnbroken, are you sure that isnt the actual footage of "Supa-butthole" and dimitri during their lightwind contest. i think i saw dimitri shoving "supa-ass wipe" of the board a few times.

That video is hilarious. I now look at my dog as somewhat less skilled now.
