PostSubject: Epic Infinity   Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:40 am

So most of you will be aware I don't usualy use any bigger kite than a 9m....for as long as I can remeber now.

That all changed a little when we started doing Epic, we got a 11m mainly for demo and the school but I've had some awesome sessions on this kite. We then got the 13m LTD again same reasons and once again I have had sessions to remeber with this kite when I would not have got out normally.
Anyway...whilst in Hatteras with Epic back in May we all had a few sessions on the Infinity and were pretty amazed at it's performance, this is not just a light wind tractor..it turns quicker than some 12's!

We had a call from Kiteworld Mag testers raving about this kite whilst they were testing it for the latest edition (just out now)
They have given it a damn fine review with things like
"If you want to get out in the lightest winds possible but not just mow the lawn, but actually get out on your regular boardand throw freestyle, this is great"

and "relaunching anything in six or eight knots is challenging but if there is a sniff of wind it launches again very well"



12knots average with the surfboard....

Still can't believe how well this kite went last Friday genuine super light breeze prob 6-7knots

This was from someone we sent the kite to for demo last weekend

Got home from an awesome weekend and have to say on Friday I was the only guy going out, kite is just unbelievable in 5mph of wind, to get 8 ft jumps in is ridiculous my only thing is the bar pressure, it was much heavier than I am used to and did struggle after an hr or so, but I did back to back it against a 15mt deluxe flysurfer and totally preferred the Infinity,faster loops like a 12 in my opinion and it created a big stir on the beach when walking out in basically a light breeze!!!

Now I'm not saying that this guy is exaggerating, but if anyone can show me an 8ft jump in 5mph of wind I will sell up my whole quiver, buy a new Epic quiver from Marc and have an Epic tattoo on my forehead Very Happy

Ha this could be awesome, maybe he's like 45 kilos?

Anyway who cares, it's a light wind kite, it works and gets people on the water in lighter winds than they would normally be able too.

All I can say is that I'm close to 90Kg and on about 14 knots I'm almost overpowered. Its unfair to compare it with a Naish 20m that I have (and used once or twice) but it turns quickly and is very stable - it isn't like a 9m but it isn't meant to be, but it is good fun. I took it out with the surf board yesterday and I'm almost coming round with the feet changes - there's plenty to lean back against!


I haven't taken it below 10 knots yet and I reckon a slightly wider board would help, but it's opened up the number of available days in a year significantly. Fatties rule ok!

Taken out today in a wind ranging from 10 kts to 18 kts - once you get used to the kite, you realise you can stretch it's range more and more.

The point about 'edging' is very true - I was virtually parallel with the water at some stages!\

Thanks for the phots
