Will give you a shops perspective on female specific kites... They don't sell good at all.

Thank you OceanAdventures and I totally understand what you are talking about. But I did post the same inquiry on my FACEBOOK page few minutes ago and I am getting a lot of response from the girls. Most of them are private messages because they want to stay private. So there is a need, like there is a need for Kids gear and as you can see right now we are the only company that makes kites and boards for kids.


There is also a need for gold chains with the name "Big Daddy Baller" on them, doesn't mean its a good idea to mass produce them.


ROFLMAO

I never said mass production. A good example is our new SURF kite model. We made a small run of 238 SURF kites and right now we already pre sold a little more then 1/2 of them and the kites are not out until the end of February beginning of March. So this will be basically the same idea with the WAHINE kite.

I have a kite school in Grand Cayman, Hurricane Kiteboarding. We are in our second year of operation and have been putting the Epic kites to the test. We mostly use Renegades in the school but also a couple of Screamers and infinity’s. I have worked with almost all brands of kites over the years and am super happy I made the choice to use Epic kites in my school. One thing that is super important in running a school is after sales service I’ve had a hell of a time with other companies in the past. Anyone that has dealt with Epic knows it doesn’t get any better. I actually don’t know another business that reply’s within the hour let alone from the owner himself. I don’t know what all the idiots bang on this forum are about? Clearly they just don’t have anything else to do. Any problem we’ve had has been dealt with efficiently and fairly. Both our 3G and 4G kites have taken a pounding and are all in top condition. The school by us is splitting kites every other month and we still haven’t had a blowout. The Renegade is an awesome teaching kite super forgiving but still retains performance I would recommend it to any school. If you get a quick slot between lessons the crew don’t even bother to changing the kites Renegades loop, unhook and pop and are ready for the next beginner lesson to take place. Everyone is always surprised when they try our kites at demos, keep up the good work Epic and people will just keep coming back!

These are some pictures of Momi and I at the EPIC factory in China as we speak. Working on few new products and making sure the factory is on it about quality control.


P.S. By the way, you need to get use to the food. I think Momi has become vegetarian

- What do you think about the Technoforce D2 Canopy ?
Thanks :)

Hello FrenchPascal
I can't show you too much about the Factory because of other kite companies that are made at the same factory. But the reason I have a T-shirt is because I have been working really hard non stop running around from one place of the factory to the other place.
We have been testing the D2 canopy which is a good product but it has its disadvantage. First of all it's heavier material and this causes few other problems on the impact. We are testing a new product different then the D2 but we need more test.

I hope this answers your questions :thumb:
