Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Thanks you pmu I know already your arguments and counter-arguments. The only pro of you being around is that the thread stays up the list. But it always end up diluting the conversation, it pumps it up and eventually the discussions dies of obesitas. I like all tube kites, the tiny ones as well as t...

Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Thanks a lot s1buell. Although you puzzle me. @ 100k you will need 13k-14k on a 15m speed 3 to get going and have fun (with 134x42 type board). ... The sweet spot for me is as they say 1 4-18kns . What's the point of a 15m2 foil then? Oh! that's why... ... But I like to ride powered. My typical day ...

Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Davince, You are always talking about a kite, but which board do you use or better, do you want to use, Frank .... I intend primarily to use this kite with a "regular" twin-tip (135x42). I can already get cruising with 12-15knts on my twin tip 135x42 and my ozone instinct 13m2. Just a lot of work, ...

Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Thanks a lot for all these responses. Thanks again DrLightwind. I have been quickly through the foilzone thread. Interesting. I also read there that you're 65kg. For the Speed 3 15m2 Deluxe there seems to be a consensus on the "sweetspot" at 11-16+knts. Basically the 4bft range and slightly above. C...

Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Thanks koma. I think I have found a mine with foilzone. For example: "... The problem with the 19 and the 15 is on water you really start having fun at about the same time. My lowend on the 19 is about 8 knots, the 15 is probably 9 knots. The 15 is a much more fun kite to fly. ... The difference bet...

Re: Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Thanks for all the replies. Helpful comments. All your input is going back to the usual discussion: super light wind vs "fun winds". I am more into "fun winds", say above 11 knots (not even sure we all realize how little wind 11knts actually is). In other words I want to have at least as much fun as...

Flysurfer speed 3 15m2 and 19m2 sweetspot?

Hi, I am seriously considering a Flysurfer speed 3 deluxe. Now, I am doubting between the 15 and 19m2. I would like to read what are their sweetspot? I understand they can manage pretty well light and stronger winds, but, according to your experience, what is the fun area? I am 1.98m (6'6) and 100kg...

Re: Ozone C4 wind range

Thanks to all and in particular to markmcir. A direct comparison is really helpful I am not a big fan of having a large quiver but I think I may go for 3 kites. Zephyr &12m & 9m C4. Although, by adding an 8m2 C4 for 2011, Ozone has made my life more tricky (such a luxury problem, snifff...). So,will...
