Nope. Mine is holding an Infinity and still has room for another 14m. I like the bag, but a single kite option could be a good idea. Of course, you could just use the red inner bag as your single. Not as beefy, but also not as much risked when left on the beach. :)

A half full bag is ten times better than a bag that your kite won't go in. Big bags let your kite breath and your can wrap it up nice and loose, I think that causes less wear and tear.
I used to have Slingshot bags that the kite would not go in. My 2010 and 2011 Blade bags were too small for the kite, it would not go in unless you are an origami expert. Big bags are nice, you can put a wetsuit in, you can pack your lunch...or whatever else.

There is Always the meshbag for people who like smaller packages.

You're not the only one, but these bags alone are a good enough reason to go with Dimitri's kites! :lol: Seriously though, been riding Ozones for a couple of seasons, where (prior to 2012) there was only one bag size for all kite sizes, and it was too small even for a 9m kite freshly-rolled, so going over to Epic felt like a breath of fresh air when packing! :thumb: Being able to fit 2 kites+harness+lots of useless crap in one single bag is rather useful when traveling as well.

Agreed. big bag fan myself, when the weather turns bad I'd hate to be sat on the beach trying to compress my kite back to its original vacuum packed self :)

Mr D I like both bags but the one on the right gets my vote.

Regards

I like the big bag too! Space for the wetsuit, harness and other kite! Hate it went you have to struggle fitting the kite in the too small bag!
2 differents pockets would be great to keep one off sand and dry for celphone and wallet. The other for wax, tools, parts.....
Please, no honeycomb on the bag, looks too busy!
Don t mind on the LE tho!

Guys, all the EPIC bags already have a pocket on top of the bag where you can find some extra lines, KiteAid patches, DVD and stickers. You can also put your wallet or cell phone in it also. Plus all the bags come with an extra smaller bag that you can open even longer if you want to store your kite with the struts inflated or wet.
Today some people had the chance to demo the 8 meter SURF kite and they fell in love with the kite. Probably because it's just such a different kite then any other kite in the market. It was blowing 12 to 18 knots. Every body else was on 12 and 14 meter kite. Actually a heavier guy was testing the INFINITY V3 kite to see its performance in higher winds. He was lit.......


P.S. I guess now you guys are intrigued to see some pictures of the "SURF" prototype kite?
