Re: FS Speed 6

I've heard the smaller sizes are a bit more of a handful. I thought the 2 was more soft in power feeling; the 1 is more "on" all the time. 2 is better on the foil because of that.

Re: Sonic2 vs. R1V2 vs. Speed5...

2 was just a bit softer than the 1; not as aggressive lift and pull, less on/off, less bar pressure. 2 is more stable, so I guess they gave up the grunt for that.

Re: Difference Flysurfer Speed5 vs Sonic2 18.0?

Please have the video camera running when you try them :D You're 90kg or so, aren't you? 18m will be a handful to solo land and launch over 18 knots, but you could probably ride it to 25. Hang time is great, and you get another little lift when you redirect (another grab!) but I had zero success wit...

Re: FS Speed 6

I prefer the Sonic 1 for TT riding, over the Sonic 2. The things that make the 2 better for foiling ruin it for the TT.

FWIW, I know guys who've ditched all their Speeds for the Sonic when it hit the market and never looked back.

Re: Sonic2 vs. R1V2 vs. Speed5...

No love for the Sonic 2? I've flown only the 18m but in both 1 and 2. The 2 is more stable and an excellent foil kite, but I prefer the 1 for light wind TT riding. 2 is a little soft, less aggressive and as it's lighter stays in the air with slack lines better. After the Sonic, the Speed 5 felt a bi...

Re: Low rider or high flyer?

High enough, board closer to the water. Same reason as you, no venting.

Re: Ozone bar new graphic

I prefer to either have a the non-black color on the left, or a high-contrast color on the back. There's only be a handful of times I've been ass over teakettle and lost the bar, but the split second I've had to glance at it I've been glad for the high-contrast to know which way I'm grabbing it. The...

Re: Energy Drinks What They Can Do?

Well, I highly distrust energy drinks, wouldn't touch them with a bargepole, but I am not ready to believe this is a real story. The guy is missing half his brain, and is still walking around? Hmm...dunno about using DailyMail as a source, but this is the third different explanation I've heard for ...
