Re: Pulsion 18m

7-11 knot. Gusts at about 12-13. Wind was more adapted to pulsion 12m in standard line (Some LEI were riding) but i wanted to test the high end of this configuration (18m+30M thin lines) to assess the wind range and report it to you and french forums. It was the comfortable limit on a foil but not a...

Re: Pulsion 18m

Day 2 in high end : personnal anemometer (another old model) showed 14 knots but it was rather 7-11 knots - not a day for a 18m with 30 m lines, but I wanted to get an idea of the high end and usable wind range - a bit affraid , but I raised the kite , in the middle of the wind window, without pre-...

Re: Pulsion 18m

The stopper is placed on the SPL B, just before the connection to C ; Actually it decreases camber (B) at the very end of the sheet-out stroke. It is the setting I prefer for the moment in 2-4 knots (before foiling-up to increase auto-zenith when I do not hold the bar and swim-out from shore); Pulsi...

Re: Pulsion 18m

Good choice for the 18m in my opinion. As a reminder the normal cloth is 40gr. The soul is 32gr.

Re: Pulsion 18m

Nice video in marginal wind Nem0. We can see the good flight of the Pulsion in extreme light wind. And nice detailed pictures. Which cloth did you choose ? 27gr or 32 gr ? Can you compare the marginal wind flight of Pulsion vs soul at the zenith ? When working the kite ? Even if even with same kite ...

Flysurfer will provide 0.7mm lines if nicely asked for;)
Do you have a contact in FS for that ? I am interested.

Re: Line strength for hydrofoiling ?

One comment about cutting fingers : when i was setting the bridles of my custom single skin, holding the (Very thin) lines by hands very close to the speed system to have a direct look, one little gust came and line sliped from my hand. I bleeded a little due to the thin diameter that has penetrated...

Re: Foil kites on shorter lines

I agree but this depends on the kite design. HL (like medium ratio kite) should react nicely to this exercise In very light and long lines (limited overflies and good drift)

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Looks like no knots at all! Be careful about short extracts. We can see that upwind of the island there is significant wind. Looking at the kite linear displacement speed (which is approx LD ratio mutliplied by wind speed) there is significant wind at some meters above the water. IMO the island pro...
