The SURF kites arrived here and we were pretty keen to try them out but the wind died when we got to the beach, I pumped up the 13m Renegade whilst the rest of the guys pumped up there biggest kites also. It was around the 14mph at the time.
I then thought I'd at least just fly the kite to get a feel for it as I had tried a very early proto type of the kite....which quite franky I told D it was shit!!
It was so so slow and heavy on the bar.
8m Surf or an Infinity??
Anyway I was surprised how powerful it felt so I thought I may as well give it a go...I know I know I am biased ( we distribute Epic in the UK and are very much dialed into the feel of Epic) BUT....man this kite really did surprise me, first off I flew way up wind whilst the rest were closer to shore struggling on way bigger kites, it turns SO fast too! I didn't really get a full chance to see how it drifts as the winds were pretty light for most of the time, however a sqaul did come through which hit 30mph plus and I was still fine.
I did wonder at times why a dedicated Surf kite when the Renegade (especially the new 4G's) are so good in the waves already, however after just one session I know which kite I will be calling shotgun over mrs.blast!!
