Yes the RENEGADE is a great wave kite. :thumb: But it is also an amazing all around kite for any one, especially with the new (Free Ride - Wave Ride) set up system we have on the LE of the (4G) RENEGADE.
Personally the RENEGADE models are my wave kites. But if you are a surfer and like to do only that, then wait until you guys get your hands on the SURF kite we are coming out with. That is all I have to say.

Guys just to let you know the SURF 12M kite will be ready for production very soon especially after the review I just got from the SBC KITEBOARDING magazine . For the past seven days these guys have been testing all the new Freestyle and Wave kite from every companies for their 2014 gear review.
Basically the editor of the magazine told me that all his testers could not believe how fast the SURF 12 kite was turning on its axis. The kite was just pivoting on its axis so fast that they thought they were kiting on a 9 meter kite.

P.S. Now can you imagine the SURF 8 :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:

Having fun testing the turning speed of the SURF 12M kite in the ocean while in the air.

I was finally able to put the new prototype SURF 5 & 8 to the test yesterday. I just could not believe the amazing performance of the SURF 8 and 5 meter kite. Just incredible. I came out of the water with a big smile telling myself "Haaa...now we are good to go" . It was blowing 18 to 25 mph and was able to use the SURF 8 with 18 meter lines and the SURF 5 on 22 meter stock lines that comes with the bar. Both of them worked great. I was a little over power on the SURF 8 but by pushing the bar out in the turns I was able to kill the power and the kite will have no power what so ever but was able to turn at the same time and stay further down into the window, so you can surf the wave. I even had one kiter who was on the beach test both of the kites and right on the spot he wanted to buy both of them. This kiter came out of no where after seeing the kite in the air from the road. So I asked him if he wanted to demo them after I was done testing them.

P.S. Was able to put all 3 SURF kites (5/8/12) inside one SURF bag for the a short trip I took in order to test them in the waves.
