Re: Ozone Edge V9 vs OR flite vs Core XR5

I have a quiver of Core XR's. I love em. They boost great, but what I really like about them is that the landings are always nice, even in the smaller sizes. They are built more durable than the edges. You may not want to even consider a foil, but if you have an open mind, the one kite i would add t...

Re: Best hurricane ultra high wind 40 plus knot kite

Even with a team, do you really want to mess with a Cat 5 Storm? The potential for a deadly acceleration is high for a storm that size.

Re: Is the twintip a dying breed?

You guys are forgetting about Maui. Riders there are out on hydrofoils in 30+ knots. It is not just lightwind foiling like you see in SoCA and Florida, they ride foils every day that there is wind. How do you tell a Maui local from a tourist? The local is wearing a full wetsuit and riding a hydrofoi...

Re: FS Sonic Race review anyone?

Kami, it sounds like you are just guessing. Have you flown a Sonic Race? My question is aimed at someone who has flown the Sonic Race with a twintip. Yes, I understand that the Sonic Race was designed for Hydrofoiling, but my experience has been that so called "racing" kites turned out to be a lot o...

Very very light bar pressure. Overall, nice. A complete waste of time and money for a twintip or surfboard.
Please explain why.

Thanks much!

Is the twintip a dying breed?

I just finished a week at a beach house in SoCA. Came back from Maui a couple months ago. Seems like all of the locals are riding hydrofoils at both locations. Wind was solid at both locations, not a day under 15 knots, but hydrofoils were the predominant choice. I remember picking up my first twint...

Re: FS Sonic Race review anyone?

Psycho 1, an aptly named kite. One minute you are rocketing to the moon, the next you are watching it bow tie. :o I liked the Sonic 1 in the 18m size, but found the instability of the kite in the smaller sizes to be tricky at times. The Sonic 2 is a tamed beast, still loads of fun, but less likely t...

Re: FS Sonic RACE review anyone?

Please let us know how it performs riding a twintip. I have been told that the kite was designed exclusively for hydrofoil racing.

Re: Intermediate kiter, ready to buy a new 10m, thoughts?

You mentioned the Core XR5, this is the kite that does everything right. I have a 10m XR4. You will not go wrong with a 10m XR4 or XR5, rather it will increase your confidence. It does not come cheap, but it is well built and will put a grin on your face every time you put it in the air.

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

I was told that the Sonic Race was designed specifically for hydrofoil racing and that it is not much fun with a twintip. Just curious if anyone has tried one with a regular board and what they thought of it?
