Won't it be harder to be pulled by a kite by standing on a SUP without falling? :roll:

I am using bits and pieces of a quote i recently read:

"When you live by the internet marketing sword...you die by it too"

Now my 2 cents
There is a lot of truth in that

Better watch out...there could be another camera on you from a "different vantage point"

Summary: Naples November 25th the V3 falls in and you have only yourself to blame..not the SUP
Cape Canaveral December 11th the V3 can't reverse launch on beach in 5kn
the V3 can't keep you riding in onshore 8kn winds


You could have saved that kite from getting wet and you know it
You messed up...not the board...or lines becoming slack.....excuses...excuses
I know going from starboard to port in a turn is not your strength...
....because you can't carve your turn...you have to step jibe it..(more acrobatic in supa LW)

During that lull when it was time to turn...(P.S. you ventured too far...you did not play safe)
...you should have "dropped yourself" in the water beside the SUP and kept the kite up by sining

While doing that with kite all you had to do is turn around that "barge" manually to the other tack

Wait patiently for a puff to water start and return to the beach like a champ
That low wind was spotty and full of holes....you knew that i hope

The most important thing for you to do was to" keep that kite flying" in that 4kn lull...
....no matter what....but unfortunately for you....you failed to do so..and it was caught on camera

Was the GoPro in your mouth somehow leashed around your neck in case of emergency......
....like if your kite was about to go down...and it was time to FOCUS on keeping the kite up instead

He reminds me... of me..not afraid to to take on the Epic puppet master

Debunking the myth is necessary...because KF deserves accurate information

That is now the second video showing the inferiority of the V3

I wish i would have been there ...Cabrinha18 LW and Core19 LW kite simply crush the V3 bucket

I just love the water texture form that angle...force 2....close to 3
Typical side shore conditions...no wind on beach...but over the water different story
Definitely KNOT less that than 5 KNUTS...(even though Dimitri claims to have 3 of them)

Ok, it's getting pathetic now. Your need for attention is tragic, and despite saying you were done with the post, the need for you to be the center of attention has drawn you back. Can we all see this sad quest for attention?

Here are a couple synonyms for pathetic, as a fun game for all of us to see how many apply to your continued posting:

Pathetic: sad, moving, touching, affecting, distressing, tender, melting, poignant, harrowing, heartbreaking, plaintive, heart-rending, gut-wrenching, pitiable • It was a pathetic sight, watching the people queue for food.

Now replace the example sentence to this:

It was a pathetic sight, watching Supa beg and plead for attention.

There, can you see it now?

The LW Cabrinha 18m2 kite stayed UP the whole time...the V3 fell in the water :roll:

Proof the the V3 does not stay UP better...... than all the other kites in the world...
...as claimed by the CEO/CFO of Epic

It is so refreshing to SEE a different vantage point :thumb:

We just want to SEE the COMPLETE TRUTH....and that video IS IT :thumb:


Hey, did that video show him sining that monster while the Infinity was parked? Yes, I believe it did.

Your inexperience in LW is really starting to show
On that afternoon the wind was up and down on the water as you got away from the shore
That wind was not a vertical gradient because from the "direction" it was blowing from
UFFY and PUFFY type wind

YES the INFINITY WAS CLEARLY PARKED...... IN THE WATER :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The V3 had a very short FLIGHT TIME

The Cabrinha Crossbow 18m2 is not a monster....i will just keep to myself what i really think of you
