Re: Is a Flysurfer Soul 18m too much for hydrofoil in light wind?

I started this thread a month ago to help me decide what size of kite I should get, after several informative replies and some help from the guys from flysurfer I decided to get a 15m Soul. Here is my impression. My kite arrived last Friday so I got 2 days in the water. I could not test it with the ...

Re: Is a Flysurfer Soul 18m too much for hydrofoil in light wind?

I've just bought 18m Soul to replace 17m Core Free. It has more power & flies far more happily in less wind. Prior to the Free, I had a Zephyr which needed much more wind than Free for 3 reasons, it's got 5 struts compared with 3 and it's not a true 17m, more like 15.5. I compared it both with my 1...

Re: Is a Flysurfer Soul 18m too much for hydrofoil in light wind?

Thanks for all comments I think the 12 would be the sweetest option but would not run in the minimal condition 15-18 would be more aligned with the wind condition that I have "low wind with lulls" 18 would not be very comfortable but I would be able to squeeze that last drop. Why not 18m. 18m has mu...

Re: Is a FLysurfer Soul 18m too much for hydrofoil in light wind?

12. For normal weight you doesnt go any earlier on bigger size with reasonable light wind capable HF /. You will just go faster on bigger sizes. Soul 12 is as powerfull as 17m LEI - hangs better in LW and its relaunchable in LW. Hi Tomtom, thanks for your answer. But in the case of the 12 would it ...

Re: F-one Bandit 4 2011 Problems with safety and relaunch

Hello

I was able to try today the tip that Julian Hosp gave me to relaunch on light wind by pulling both back lines. It works great, it is very easy to do and the kite turns very easy.

It really solve my problem of relaunch the bandit 4 14m on light wind.

I hope that can help others too.

Re: F-one Bandit 4 2011 Problems with safety and relaunch

I could not try any method sugested here yet, but I emailed Julian Hosp, he is sponsored by f-one and he gave me two tips that I will share here. Maybe that can help others too. Hey Cesar. Especially on the big kites, the relaunch is a little tricky. You can try to do 2 things: 1. swim towards the k...

Re: F-one Bandit 4 2011 Problems with safety and relaunch

Hello Patrick Did you found a solution to the relaunch problem? I just bought a F-one Bandit 4 14m and I am having the same problem to relaunch in light wind. I try to pull one of the back lines but the kite pull real hard, but it does not turn. I used to own a cabrinha switch blade whitch was reall...
