Thank you Larse but this is only one of the prototypes we have been testing. With have few more coming. Some of them have shorter bridles and some other ones have no bridles at all.

Here are a couple of pictures more of the EPIC SURF kite in action in the Outer Banks, NC.
This is the prototype 8m.

Even if I think my Renegade 11m turns/pivot faster than this proto 8, I found this SURF kite having a way better drift when surfing the waves , a lot of power and a great n fast relaunch even in chaotic water conditions!

Hopefully some good wind tomorrow on the ocean side to give it an other go!

Looks like a "Pre-shrunken" version of the Naish Sigma?? Hmmmmmmm

Nothing groundbreaking here! Ya think??

mmm maybe, sigmas profile is very different at the center of the leading edge. Sigmas were a good kite, just gutless.

Hey mr negative. Its nothing like a sigma shape. Not even close. It really is a different shaped LE. The kite has a different shape aswell. The kite will do what it was made for and its not quiet there yet and therefor its just a prototype.
