Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

It was pure adrenaline especially when you were getting hit by these 60 knots winds. But it was worth it once you were on these waves. I did put the NANO 4 for a good test. I could not believe how well it was handling the gusts especially after seeing other kites try to go out and maybe lasted for 10 minutes few of them were folding and I won't mention the names. I was out there for 2.5 hrs.
I also crashed the kite few times and one time the kite got eaten by a 15 feet wave. I thought that was the end of my session but NO the kite came back up with no problem. This is a good way to test the gear. You should watch the video to understand how windy it was.
I would like to thank Chris Cifers for Filming, and also thanks few people that were their to help me when I lost my board and also helping me to get into the water. Because it was crazy. :bye:

Actually when my son Cameron found out that I took his NANO 4 he got very upset about it and wanted me to pay him for using it. :evil:
I have to get my own NANO 4 now because I know I will be using it in the wave when it blows 28 knots and above.
