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.

A lot of people have been asking me how the (4G) will look like.
Well this is a preview of the look of our new EPIC (4G) product.

Hello guys,
As you probably know we have been working on the prototype (4G) EPIC kites for a while. We have been testing few different ideas to see if we can come up with something better. But it is so hard since we already have something amazing. But any way we are still working on it.
We are also working on few different ideas such as the Pulleys. We have been using these "STAINLESS STEEL SLIDER PULLEYS" and they work great, but was wondering if you guys would like to have some different pulleys such as the "RONSTAN RF 25109" pulleys . As you know I like to change things around in order to make every body happy.
The only problem with the "RONSTAN RF 25109" is that after a while the bearing stop spinning.
I have been testing these head to head and they both do the same job except that the "RONSTAN RF 25109" stops working after 2 months and need to be keep clean compare to the "STAINLESS STEEL SLIDER PULLEYS" that needs no attention.
So any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and patience.

The stainless steel pulleys work a treat... Simple no fuss - self cleaning and 100% reliable.

We've seen a fair bit of wear to the bridles with the steel sliders so we are keen to see how the pulleys work out.
I think our damp/wet sand has a lot to do with it. :(

Ok windsuks, I will have RONSTAN send you some of these new pulleys to test in your damp/wet sands. Let me know the results after testing them.
