This is why people like Pete and Robbie don't get involved with online discussions! Dimitri should have avoided this thread altogether as it has gotten out of hand. It was comical to watch Supa have his meltdown but now it is just plain sad. I can't see how continuing with this discussion will help out epic but rather have people turn to a company that isn't engaged in a passing match with a disgruntled troll. It is apparent that Supa is getting the attention that he craves!
SupaEZ and PMU have wasted all this time and energy on this thread because they are trying to prove that Dimitri is really kiting in 6 knots when he says 4 knots? ARE YOU F*%&ING KIDDING ME?!?!
And Dimitri is wasting all of his time and energy on this thread because he's promoting his very own kite brand?
Hmmmm... which one sounds like a good use of time, and which one sounds like somebody that needs to get laid?
Who the F&*%K knows what the wind is really blowing when it's that low?! And who gives a $#!T anyway? Dimitri's has demonstrated in every one of these videos that his kite will fly in winds that we would have considered farts just a few years ago.

Along with every other kite he went up against. Infact I would say that the Cabrinha kite out performed the infinity and at the least the Core matched it and may have also outperformed it. I have to agree with whom ever said, live by the Internet sword, die by it. It's clear Dimitri has done all he can to augment the viewable reality of what happened in Naples. My opinion is if you get caught lying everything that has been said and will be said needs to viewed with much more scrutiny then if no lie was known. I've tried the infinity kites. I was not sold.
Where is this "Lie" in the Naples video? He showed what his kite did. He never said his kite did not go in the water, and he never said that no other kite flew that day. All companies make advertisements showing their product used successfully, and no product works as advertised 100% of the time. It is obvious that Dimitri dropped the kite while trying to turn around on the paddleboard. Damien LeRoy then went out on the Cabrinha with a raceboard and did a really good lightwind demonstration. He did not, however, attempt to turn around while standing on his board (from what I saw on the Latino video). Both kites were obviously capable of flying in that condition. I am sure there are a few other kites that could have flown at that time as well, but the original video was an Epic Demonstration by the owner of the company, so what do you expect him to show.
If that video is an acceptable version of truth then every video posted by Dimitri requires more scrutiny. What I expect is an honest account of what happened. He didn't have to say no other kites could go out at that point the edit said it well enough, and was a complete farce.
