I would have to say, opening and reading a thread that clearly says Epic on it when you hate Epic is plain dumb. Posting on an Epic thread to rail about it and thus adding posts and momentum to exactly what you want to see less of is just cranking the dumb dial all the way around so it's back to brilliant again.

SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

I believe you are better than anybody else to know what the requirements to a Surf Kite are.
IMO I tested Best Cabo, Airush Wave and Cabrinha Drifter and found out the Drifter the one that is better than the other two.
Best Cabo is the second and has the best color! Airush wave seems a do-it-all entry kite like Cabrinha Vector. Also, I believe it is too powerful to be a wave kite.

Again as a wave kite it has to drift, kiteloop with ease to recover power and it shall have restricted wind window. A plus, a stronger structure to colapse under some waves and still in one piece.

Colors? I like black kites, they are easier to repair and stay clean.

Hope being of some help.

Airush wave has this best colour though I'd be going that one myself. :D

I feel your pain Dude. It is sad that someone cannot ask a simple question without getting trolled on. On the plus side, you got a response from the guy who is actually going to do the graphic design on the kite. :thumb:

While color and graphics may be low priority compared to capability and performance, when you are spending your hard earned cash on a cool toy, you might as well like the way it looks.
