Epic Kites, a new company founded by Dimitri Maramenides, just launched their website. Check it out at http://www.epickites.com
From the Site:
For the past 10 years, I have been living, breathing, eating and sleeping kiteboarding. It has been my livelihood, my passion and it has worked its way into every part of my being. Kiteboarding has brought me many new friends both personally and professionally. Many of you know the feeling. The winds are up and you can’t think of anything else but getting in a session. Riding with friends in great winds is as good as it gets. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to take my passion to the next level with many successes and some opportunities for improvement.
The word EPIC comes from the Greek EPOS. Epos is a story-myth that includes heroes and brave actions. A new chapter is now opening in my life called EPIC KITES that I will model after this Greek foundation of stories. This company will be a part of me that will show my passion and drive for this sport. Along with Momi as the kite designer and my friends Jeroen and Steven we have created a new line of kites and products to be designed around you, the rider. We’ll continue to work on new products going forward with the help of our EPIC team.
My goal with EPIC KITES is to produce for you the ultimate experience in kiting from the time you purchase to whenever you need help with a product or just have a question. I will put into this company the amount of energy that I put into my own riding, constantly pushing the limits of what is possible and showing that it can be done. It’s going to be EPIC.
