Well i just saw the 2014 Vegas... personally i think its horrible. It looks like a Gaastra Sailboat sail or something like that. Maybe better in other colours then i saw.
In the end liking graphics is a personal taste. I just pumped the Surf LTD and its definitly not a sigma shape. It sure is a weird kiteshape to look at.
I agree there is no account for taste, but some kites are just 'air pollution' as Vegas.
Maybe I sting into a wasp nest here, but since this is a public R&R for Epic, here are my $.02:
The LE of the kite is like the sigma shape for Naish. By retarding the edge I get more overfly for the kiter. So IMHO it's the same concept just different execution (and maybe a patent issue). I can see that the pointed edges will increase the turning speed of the kite, it doesn't help water relaunch, though. So I am not quite sure, where the big wow effect comes from, as a wave kite. Surprise me, please.
If your design is a selling point, I am definitely NOT your target group. It's ugly, like the guy in speedos and his wacky hat trying to hold up that thing.
Just my honest $.02 here.
