Dimitri, you have got another 2 months. Come over here and we hit some islands to the east of Bali for some real down the line side -to side-off shore wave riding!

Ok Westozzy your wish is my command. I was able to put together a video of one of the prototype 8m SURF kite. Sorry about the quality but we had only an IPHONE with us. Plus I did not know it was going to be so windy so I did not have the SURF 5 with me only the 8m & 12m. I was way over powered on the kite since it was blowing 16 to 32++ mph and I did not want to use the RENEGADE 6.5 so I can test the performance of the SURF 8 in these conditions. The only way to be able to hold the SURF 8 and wave ride was to set it up on the lower knot in order to have it depowered all the time. Not great but it worked and I was able to test its performance.

I have to say, I like the way you set up the close out for air.

Bring one to PR soon, will definitely want to try!

Regards,

These are few pictures of the REEF 5'7" surf board while testing the SURF 8m kite prototype.
Will have a picture for you of the final looks of the SURF 5/8/12m kite + the BAG very soon.

Yes you are right Westozzy. I get a better balance when I unhook, and I can surf the wave way better unhook because I am not constrain to the kite and you get a feel for freedom.
Will post some pictures with some unhook surfing but I usually unhook when the waves are way bigger then that day.
