Re: Flysurfer Soul

Yesterday, I had the Soul 10m out in gusty 35 knots on the water. I weigh 180 LBS. I have a lot of experience with FS kites. The jumping and hangtime on the Soul was excellent. I agree that the jumping performance of the Soul is probably 90% of the Sonic 2, but it is so much more stable and easy to ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I took the 15m FS Soul on the snow today. Wind was blowing 8 to 12 mph. Normally, i would fly an 18m Sonic 2 in wind that light. I really liked the dual port inflation, kite inflated quickly compared to the Sonic 2. I liked how easy the kite was to loop and the consistent power through the loop. The...

Re: Snow kite up and speed fly down.

Yes, it has been done. Some of the local Utah kiter seems went to Craters of the Moon park in Idaho and filmed footage.

What’s more fun it to kite up and glide down without packing up the kite or unfurling a Speed wing = more time kiting & more time flying.

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I am thankful for the kiteforum. I am a knob that has been kiting for 20 years. Over the years, we had threads that devolved into petty name calling. I don’t see it happening anymore and just as the forum has evolved, so has Toby as a moderator. If wakestylers don’t feel the love, try on landboardin...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Flag,

Keep in mind, that your 12m Peak generates the equivalent power of a 14 or 15m LEI due to the greater projected area of a fully bridled and thus flatter single-skin kite. Keep that in mind for future comparisons. 🙌

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Looks like the FS Soul might be the ideal kite to allow me to ditch my small inflatable kites. The Speed 5 is a wonderful kite, but I found that I don’t feel comfortable self-launching my 9 Meter in the strong, gusty we get here on in-land lakes. So, I use Inflatables in the smaller sizes, but I rea...

Impressive relaunch! Though it made me cringe watching foils slammed down so hard.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Good thing Flysurfer makes great kites, marketing effort falls short when you expect readers to watch a video to answer product questions. I guess the FAQ on the webpage will have to do for now. Here it is: The FLYSURFER SOUL is a brand new product line, which targets a wide variety of customers, wh...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Okay, FS nice video and great looking kite. My first Flysurfer was a 12m SpeedAir and I have owned every model of FS since that time. So, yes I am a loyal fan. Please help us understand exactly why you introduced the Soul. I thought it might be a kite between the Speed and the Sonic, but the AR is l...

Re: Video of Ram Air Inversion Disaster

I prefer large foil kites on the snow and water. 10m and below, I use tube. However, who really cares what kite you use? Just have fun and don’t worry about what the other guy is doing.
