Re: Snow kite up and speed fly down.

I also recall a video from a few years back where I guy took off from a snowkiting area in the mountains and descended approximately 2000 feet into a town the whole time on his flysurfer foil. Not safe as any failure would have been fatal. 😳

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Back to the topic... Flew the 21 Soul yesterday and today. Yeah, it rocks. Selling my hardly used Speed 5 21. The shorter bridles are really nice on a kite that big. The kite moves like an 18, doesn’t feel like you have to adjust like you always had to in the past for the slowness of the 21 compared...

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

This is a silly thread. Who cares what kite company is winning races? I could care less. Kite racing, yes it is tough, but it is like watching paint dry from a spectators perspective. You could try to list objective standards until the cows come home, but both companies have their strengths and weak...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

. My Soul 15 is in the mail as I write and can't wait. For the "too LEI like" comment, I was wondering. For those who have gone from the Speed/Sonic to the Soul, is it really that different? Does that mean you don't bar out some during jumps and whatnot and keep the bar in like on LEIs? If so, that...

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. 🙌
