Re: Light wind kite information??
Hi guys just got a new lite wind board Twin Tip with four fins 170cm.
It 's made in Ontario Canada by Dan from ( epicboards.com ) it's nice
and lite only 6.5 lbs.I can use my boot bindings or sandles from my
other board(wakeboard 143 cm ) the tiwntip is 3/4 " thick by 16" wide
with very sharp rails good for going upwind and i been told guys use
it for high winds too . it's made of ( polymer carbon, glass epoxy,
and heat cured. The best thing about it is it's price in Canadian dollards
more than half the price from ordering one from the states. Dan gives
10% off if ordered before spring . Well cant wait to try it out this
summer and see how well it works. PS like to know if anyone else tried
and Epic Board ( Twintip, Directional,Wakeboard ) before and how they
compare to other similar boards ? Ok still waiting for good amount of
snow to try new snowboard i hope it's here before Christmas holidays.

and proberly have a better performance...But i want to be able to
handle it and the wind range of a foil is much more narrow thats
what ive heard...And mayby you have more truble whith bridles tangle
lines and kollaps kites in air because of gusty wind..Its gusty most
of the time where i kite...But the mast air seem to be a good kite i
agree :)If i had steady wind all the time i proberly would bought a
