yesterday I tried the Draft 12m during a test day and i have to say that i was impressed! that kite is something special!
The feeling at the bar is strange but as soon as you get used is ok.
Among several other kites I also tried the Rebel 2014 which is also jumping high but the draft gives a smother and higher lift!

Ah, we at Naxos island how we can try? :-D The weekend gonna have 20,25 knots. A 9 screamer would be perfect or when you come again to Paros it's 20min downwind to Naxos from xrisi akti :-)

Hello dimip,
I am in Greece right now and will be in Paros on Wed or Frida this week for few days depending of the conditions. So email me if you want to demo any of the SCREAMERS. Naxos is only 15 km from Xrisi Akti. So I can always kite over in order for you to try the SCREAMER 7/9/10/12/14.

Dimitri, thank you so much for sending me one Screamer 12m to demo! Looking forward to test it here in Sweden. The best month for kitesurfing here in Sweden is september/october, so the timing is perfect! I´ll hopefully let you know what I think of the Screamer quite soon :)

You are welcome GrodanBoll. Just let us know what you think about the kite. I think you are getting the SCREAMER 12 (3G) and not the (4G) but you will get an idea of what the SCREAMER is all about.

Hello dimip,
I am in Paros right now but will have to leave sooner then what I was contemplating. The good news is that I did talk to my Greek rep Nikos Kalaitzan who is located in Athens and if you get in touch with him at: nikalaitzian@yahoo.gr he will get you some SCREAMERS models to demo.
