SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.

Working on the SURF 8M prototype here in Prasonisi "Rhodos". I think we are very close to the final sample.

Dimitri,

I am in the market for replacing my Renegades and really wanna go to a dedicated surf kite. I am interested in the Surf but its been all pictures talk and one mediocre vid at best. Can we get a vid show casing this kite? Can we see it drift in action and also running at the kite on the beach maybe even doing it unhooked also if you can. Really can we just see the kite do its thing not in pictures.

Hello Drew22. The RENEGADE is a great kite for the waves. Every surfer that I met do love the RENEGADE for surfing. Any way the SURF kite will be 100% for just the waves but again we are still working on the prototypes because I did not like few minor things the kite was doing but we are getting very close to the final version. The next pictures you will see will be the final look of the SURF with the actual graphics. And will do a video of the kite so you can see how it performs in the surf, how it relaunches, how it drift down the wave especially unhooked. We are expecting to get the next prototype of the SURF 5/8/12 with the graphics in 2 weeks.
Give me at least 28 days because right now I am traveling doing some demos in Greece.

Sorry for the delay on showing you the final look of the SURF kite. We are almost at the end of our final prototypes and wanted to share some of these pictures.
As you already know the SURF will come in 5/8/12 meters. And in the bag you will have an extra set of 18 meter lines for best result in the waves. Plus you can see from the pictures bellow that the bag will have few extra side pockets so you can store your Wax and your set of Fins.

Hello guys,
I've had a lot of people asking when the SURF 12/8/5 meters will be out in the market!!!!
Well in order to bring you the best performing kite for the waves Momi and I need more time so we can bring you something that will blow your mind once you get the kite in your hands and venture in the surf. So in few words, we are still working on finishing few more details to make this kite top notch for the surf. But in the mean while here are some pictures testing the SURF 5m prototype kite during a storm. We are almost there and I think we should have something ready by January.

P.S. The Life Vest I am wearing was given to me by my good friend Maverick legendary surfer Jeff Clark so I can test it in case something happens.

That's what happens over time when kitesurfing near Nugs Head Cape Hatteras

It's not so much that they are big.....it's that he once told us he has 3 of them......nuts that is

The average between 2 & 4 :wink:
