Re: Pulsion 18m

Interesting you choose Pulsion over soul for light wind, weight is incredible. The soul has an interesting shape, very curved TE.

@Regis have you tried a Bar adjustable camber setup, like with adding extra front lines?

Re: Flysurfer Soul

You haven't jumped till you have been on a 15m foil in 30knots. There is a reason Toby uses large kites in high wind, the hang time is nuts. Len10 10m in 40+knots. 8m Foil 45knots nuts too :-).

Re: Weight difference

Sorry getting the speed4's mixed up, I was talking about lotus though I am sure the original speed 4 10m doesn't weigh that much. even with the tiny amount of bridal stretch in Dyneema, sheeting angle or individual bridal tuning issues are exaggerated. Shrink not stretch. I think it is kind of funny...

Re: Weight difference

Also a foil kite will lose shape and fall like a shapeless grocery bag, especially thin ones. And if a gust comes before it hits the water/ground it will pop you like a cork. Been there myself and saw that few times.. My larger, thicker foil would drift back in lulls nicely though A LEI would fall ...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

I've ridden a surfboard a lot last 8 years. I'd not want to use a slow kite on one. So I'm keeping my North Monos as surfboard kite. The HL 12 surely is slow for a surfboard. And the Chrono will be more boosty on the TT? My guess is both will be poor surfboard kites, but Chrono better than HL on th...

Surf kites don't need to turn fast, you are after a wave kite or something to do turns on flat water with or near waves, especially in front of them for the pics.
I need a wave kite that turns fast.
OK then, go to your local and find a small Italian.
