Re: When is "Big" too big?

I weigh 180 LBS. I have been flying versions of the 21 Speed on the snow for a decade in the mountains of Utah (Skyline is at 9600 feet). If you want a kite only for riding in the lightest winds, not jumping or gliding, your best bet is a single skin kite. A 12m Peak 3 or the new 11m Peak 4 will fly...

Re: Trainer/Beginner kite advice

Definitely go with the 9M Peak 3, not the 6 for the wind conditions you described. I use my Peak 3 with a Flysurfer 4 line bar, any bar with even length lines and a rear-line flagout system should work with the Peak 3, but I would test in light winds to be sure. It is possible to setup the Peak 3 wi...

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Staying on the ground is going to be faster most of the time. The exception would be if there were terrain features like a cliff or boulders in the way. Gliding is fun and a part of winter kiting that is great to add to your arsenal, but non-essential to racing. BTW, plummet, you are correct when yo...

Re: old blades and old flysurfers

Slide,

Have you tried any of the more recent Flysurfer kites? A lot has changed since the Speed2.

I am not saying that you can’t make the older kites work, you just might be surprised how much has changed.

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

The 10m Soul has the same color scheme as well. It is an amazing kite and the hangtime is unreal, even for less talented kiters. I wish that FS had used different color designations for each size of the Soul. Glad puppy isn’t dead, just slow on the response and where is the copy and paste diatribe a...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

I like to fly foil kites in gusty conditions. I don’t like pumping and I like the boosting ability of a foil. I have Core XR5 in 7 & 10m, but the 10m Soul has taken their place. The Soul has so much range and it is just awesome to ride in powered up conditions. You just rocket into the sky, but stil...

2020 — Pumpy is going to pump and stump for Trump. :thumb:

P.s. not trying to start a political debate, just like how Pump rhymes with Trump.

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

I am disappointed in you Pumpy! Where is the long copy & paste?
