PostSubject: Nice feedback (again)   Thu Feb 20, 2014 7:46 pm

...when you get emails like this!

We sold a quiver of Screamers last autumn (after 35 emails back and forth) to a guy from another part of the UK who then sent us this email....

Marc and Dimitri,

Just a quick not to say I had an awesome session on 10m Ltd yesterday and was blown away by the pop and hang-time! My jumps were twice as high as a similar move on my old Vegas 9m and the gentle drift down from the top of the arc meant 95% clean landings rather than the usual 60% Surprised)

The 4G was well worth the wait!

Many thanks

Adrian





We posted the above copy of the email back last November ish.

He's now just sent this...

Hi Dimitri & Marc,

Just a quick note to thank you again for the 4G Screamers. I've been on the 7m & 10M Ltd over the winter but the last few days in Grenada I've had a chance to play with the 14m. It's AWESOME in low wind conditions!

I've attached a few photo's in case you're interested.

Adrian

Hello Blast peeps :)I took that photo )

unfortunately all I can tell you is that the picture was taken on Saturday afternoon at Ainsdale. (22nd of Feb)

I've taken loads of photos of the Ainsdale guys and stuck them up on Flickr.


I see I can't send a link, but if you Google Geordie Amanda Flickr and go to my SETS you will see loads of kitesurfing from Ainsdale


I have tried to get the Ainsdale guys to join Flickr and tag the photos and perhaps add a little info to go with the odd shot. Sadly they don't seem too interested in this :(So if anyone on here is on Flickr and would like to help I'd be really grateful. If nothing else it's nice to put names to faces. I'm also interested in learning more about where and when I should go to the coast to catch you guys flying. I live in Manchester, so ideally the North West coast. What about Blackpool, West Kirby and New Brighton?

Hi Amanda and thanks for the info.
We prob have the info of the guy if we went back through our online system.

I know Blackpool is popular especially up around Fleetwood with flat water for the freestyle guys, same I believe with West Kirby.

I can't really help much more than that, other than most kitesurfers will be looking for around 20-30 knots wind and may be worth watching here: http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/fleetwood

and more, this time on a Renegade 9m we sent off for demo

I'm just drying the 9 off after yesterday then I'll post it back.. How do I
put this, I've only flown this kite in squally / gusty weather when I'd be
over / under powered on the evo's due to the gruntyness of the kite / my
lack of technique(I flew both back to back yesterday). The renegade just
absorbed the gusts and let me enjoy the session, I think I'm starting to get
the feel of it now timing wise.. its so much faster turning than the evo
once it all clicks.

Yep I did 1/2 hr on the evo, swapped to the Renegade, did 1/2 hr, swapped
back to the evo , did 2 tacks and had a WTF moment, straight back in then
out on the renegade for the next hr. Smile
