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.

Well since the pictures of the SURF prototype kite are out let me post few more to give you a better idea of what we have been working on.
Since then we have had the opportunity to change few things on the SURF kite from all the inputs you guys have been giving us. But again this will be concept and shape of the new SURF kite. The graphics are not on yet but wait until you see the graphics on the kite.
Any way, we still have to go through lots or prototypes and R&D in order to make the SURF kite absolute for the waves..

That's a shame Dimitri, I think that's the best looking Epic kite I've seen. How is the Blast crew getting on?

Hello JamesVegas. Well if you think this is the best looking kite you have seen, then you will be very impressed with the final look of the SURF kite. The colors that you see will remain the same but with a nice touch of some nice fonts to finish the final look.

The UK "BLAST KITEBOARDING" crew is doing very well kiting every day here on the Outer Banks (NC. USA). I think yesterday was the only day they did not kite.

Looks nice.

The draw back off the center, is a great idea.
The 4.5-5-6-7-7.5 where great wave sizes.

I realy loved the throw, powerdelivery, it suck`ed unhooked but think you made that work on yours.

Really nice looking kite.

You will have to give Marc one to bring back to the UK. I would love to try that out.

Love the way it looks sitting on the deck.

Graphic's are pretty cool too. :thumb:

What's a SIGMA kite!!!!!!
The idea and shape of our new SURF kite doesn't exist. It is a new concept.
It's so interesting how different companies are watching us like hawks....We must be doing something right.
:D :thumb:

P.S. BigPaul, I can't let people take the prototype yet because Momi and I have lots of work to do on these prototypes. Right now the kite does what we want it to do but the only thing that's missing is the turning speed of the kite. We want the kite to turn like a 5 meter kite. Because right now the 8 meter doesn't turn as fast as Momi and I want to turn.
So in few words once I have the final SURF prototype ready then I will let more people test it, but right now it's not finished because we need to refine it more.
