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.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: That's true Huib. But I don't need a WOO. I know how high I was jumping. Some of the jumps I was between 65 to 70 feet (21 meters) up there. But the conditions were very very gusty (27 to 57 mph) 30 mph difference between low and high. It was too crazy and not much fun. But the SCREAMER kite did perform very good. :thumb:

Looks like fun to me. Couldn't of been too scary or you would have put up a smaller kite. Nothing quite like sending your kite at the same time as a 20 knot gust hits. The elevator ride can't believe no one else wants to ride with you. Loop thAt shit!
