Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

I think Xensr is gone unless they can make a business case with smartwatch kitejump software. But now it is available only on Apple swatches. Business would be like $5/month fee for watch software and social site. Woo business case is to sell new hardware every year. But still it is interesting to c...

Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

Kami, I see you publish your Woo3 stats on Facebook. For sure I did post mine 7.2m as a part of the game and will be posting in the future as I now also have the Woo3. I just want to open up discussion that probably 11.3m posting on facebook might mean 8m in SI-units and probably 8-9m on Xensr-meter...

Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

Let's add time correlated data, so here are jumps only found on both devices.. And timestamp offsets are verified to match. So how devices are seeing exactly the same jumps.

Woo3 and Xensr compared

Me and my friend did some riding on single Flyradical-board (TT) with both devices attached. I typed the logs to Excel and graphed. Flysurfer Sonic1-15 and Sonic2-15 was used and the wind was on low side, 4-5m/s approx. I am the one jumping #1-12 and #24-34. Jumps #13-23 my friend was loaning the bo...

Re: Bar recommendations

For foil kite the front line safety moving range should be about the wing span of the kite. So lay your kite on the ground, move the bar to safety stopper knot and tension safety-side bridles. Check if other side bridles are lose. If not - kite will loop while on safety. For flagging out bridles can...

Re: Bar recommendations

Problem with Click-bar is that it binds if you turn the kite which is IMO the worst thing in kite bars and foil kites like to be sheeted. I really love Flysurfer own bars. You can steer and sheet at the same time. Un-winds twisted lines. Easy to replace depower line (with core dyneema for security) ...

Re: Affordable Kite - Highest Jump - Longest Hangtime

Does woo post a list of kites used to make the highest jumps? That might be helpful.... That does not prove much. People can use other kites IRL and report their sponsor gear.. :) For example Cameron M. twin-tip races with Ozone-gear on pump kite class but never mention that out loud but you can se...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

This video shows the trick with 1st gen Sonic 15m probably with 21m std lines from dual perspective. I wonder when multiple deadman's turns are done with HF in a row..

Re: Flysurfer soul pack down

I am not Soul owner but I've owned Flysurfer "rib-kites" since Speed4-10DLX was new (5 years). Never a problem with plastic ribs on pack down or deformation because of that. Just roll the kite. Only problem I hear (which is universal to all kites) if you land kite LE-first to sand/ice and wind rubs ...

Re: Affordable Kite - Highest Jump - Longest Hangtime

Or see the Woo(2)-truth. First time foil-kite users combinedly jumped over 2m higher on avg when best tubes jumped around 6m.

X-axis is jump height in woo2-meters
Y-axis is normal distribution of mag reported jumps
