Topic: Do Foils turn a lot slower than Leis

I know nothing about Psycho having not used it yet, but with my brother flying foils since the earlier days, we decided to go for 12.5. 15s are too big and too slow. With ligh wind you cruise nicely but get bored in 5 minutes. As soon as the winds picks up, they get too big too quickly. Better flyin...

Sardinia is nice in that period. Porto Pollo usually works with all winds. Better Mistral NW. Yes it can be strong in that period. Alghero can be nice but West winds are not so frequent. Waves are superb. If you've got a depression coming closer to the island, you will get the best fwom S, SE, SW in...

It is impossible it doesn't work. It may be is is wrongly connected by the factory. The high demand of this model forced the factory to deliver the kites not fully set. I received a worrior with the lines not connected and I did it myself. I cannot help not having the Psycho yet, but for sure your l...

I have these kites too. All it is made in china and extremely well made. There is much more added value in a foil kite like FLYSURFER.DE than any other inflatable.- Have a look on the beach and compare yourself. I think that the drama is not the cost of foil, but the cost of inflateble ones. There i...

If we take comparable sizes, I think the following to my experience: SOFT RAILS BETTER FOR 1)Riding smoothly in all conditions 2)Going throgh choppy water 3)Carving and riding on waves 4)Riding overpowered 5)Feeling and flat board riding SHARP RAILS BETTER FOR 1)Light wind upwind performance 2)Highe...

90 KG:
140 is too small for the low end. 160 gets too big in any case. I got both of them. In case you like riding one boar only, get the AX150.
Yeah if you ride with leash don't forget helmet!! Sharp and sinking edges!!

Get a knife!!!! get used to find it out in extreme conditions, otherwise you won't find it when needed. It is difficult to get tangled when the kite falls but it is rather possible to get tangled when you try to reach the kite when the wind drop off and you have to swim back on the beach. It happene...

Hi Josh,
I have never seen seated boards or similar. I just can guess it is going to be difficult as if you don't stand on your legs you will hardly resist to the force of the kite and you will be dragged downwind at the end.
Anyway may be sombody knows something more
Goof Luck

Hi, I'm using it from 10 to 22 knots. Best performance 14/17 knots. Not great with lightest wind due to the weight of the wing. But great in the hi-end of the range. Yesterday was difficult to hold 12 m for many and I was overpowered but in great control with the 16.5 (12.2 BT) . Don't buy it if you...
