Hi All,
I am just about to finish my kiteboarding lessons at 3rd Avenue and starting to look for gear.
I saw this on the classifieds and wanted some pro advice:
EPIC SCREAMER 12M KITE 2010- COMPLETE - KITE, BAG, BAR/LINES AND PUMP for $400

I am 5"9 155 lbs. I will be moving back to Toronto soon where the winds are much lighter (~10 knots).

Thanks,
Sameer

Hey Sameer,

Toronto as in Canada?

I kite Lake Michigan and the kite size I use the most is a 12M. Its a good first kite. My buddy rides an epic screamer and loves it. The gear is 4 years old now so definitely inspect it well.

Also we are putting together a list of places to ride in the great lakes area. Haven't made it to Toronto yet but you can check out this map if your ever closer to Michigan

I had a friend tear two brand new epic kite canopy's on first use.. maybe it was a default in construction, just sayin.

That's what they get for flying two brand new kites at the same time. ";

Thanks for the replies :)

@Bryce
Yup, Toronto Canada. There is some good spots around Sauble Beach, but I am noob so don't know how it compares to other places.

Be careful. 2010's had bladder quality problems.
They are great kites though. Love my screamers.
