Nice pictures nikalaitzian. Wait until you try the S U R F kite model. This is the reason why I'm sending you the (S U R F 8m) model for you to demo so you can see why this kite was designed just for the waves.

I just wanted to take a moment to publicly thank both Helen and Dimitri for their help with a non kiting favour that I asked of them last week. Both of them were very helpful in answering some questions that I had, and both were very upfront, honest, sincere and positive.
I don't think you could encounter nicer people in any business, anywhere!

Talking about music, you guys are lucky I have not used Zorba the Greek yet. Any way, if some of you guys are into wave riding and love surfing...then the SURF 5/8/12 model was designed specifically for the love of surfing. You should see the faces of the people that have already demo the SURF kite and bought it. Even our Epic dealers can't stop talking about it. Like the KITEBOARDING magazine said on their latest test: "The SURF kite is a class of its own". So if you are interested in getting one, then make sure to contact email@example.com so we can have one set a side for you. Or get in touch with our select Epic dealers world wide.
I have the 12m and 8m. Didn't think I would need the 5m (5m??) but will get it as the kites have beaucoup power for their size.
They feel really different from the Renegades- which I used to use with both 22m and 15m lines. Now I just use the Surf with the supplied 18m lines. They handle really well and the bar pressure is "perfect" according to longtime BEST kiter. I agree. I wouldn't want less.
Winter has been shit here for both wind and waves but the little I've used them (4 x) "they are like a well behaved child" to quote a friend. They just sit there and let you and your board go about yer business. They go upwind better than expected when toeside, but jumping is a bit of a challenge on the shorter lines (and because I suk and it'll take me a while to get it dialed).
The Renegade is still a better all around kite so the specialization of the Surf may not be for everyone. For me it is. Love the shorter lines, large inflation valve too.
