Re: This could be something to use a kite for...never mind

A flying fan boat is this Florida boy's wildest fantasy.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

What would you recommend for use with a waveboard & twintip? I fly Naish Pivots 5-7-9 but would like something when wind is below 17-18 knots to have some fun on either waveboard (small waves as they're windbased) or twintip (won't go to the moon obviously but decent jumps and hangtime for some bac...

Re: Airush Ultra 12m for waves

I'm riding the 9 a lot. I enjoy waves on a surfboard and when too light for surfboard move to hydrofoil. I'm 190 lbs using the 9 with a surfboard in 15-20 knots and foil 10 to 15 knots. I enjoy riding downwind in underpowered conditions waves pushing me into the kite and lines. We have mostly onshor...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I spent a little time flying my Speed 4 DLX yesterday. One of the things that impresses me most about that Speed 4 is how it maintains some steering even with the bar completely depowered and rear lines slack. This is an effect I have not seen in tube kites or other brand foil kites. Maybe its an ef...

Re: The end of kiteboarding in Florida?

Chemosavi, You have lots of experience launching from a boat if I recall? Maybe it would provide some hope for the Florida man kiteboarder. I'm from Florida, and I think the privatization of the beach and loss of access is a real loss not just for kiters. Quality of life for locals is put off in fav...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

How prominent is the triple depower effect with Soul?

I'm very happy the 6-8-10 sizing is back.

Flysurfer Profile Momentum Adjuster

Screenshot from a soul video.

What an elegant way to adjust the camber on a foil kite! Why not a tube kite? Too bad it has been kept a secret.

Re: Beginner Board Advice: Door vs Regular Large

Unless you have really big chop, my bias is towards choosing the smaller door style board for a beginner. It will make a great light wind extender even as you get better. You will buy more kites and boards as time goes on. If the winds are gusty as they often are on a lake, rigging a kite size for t...

Now time to see how best to split the centre line into 2 and maybe try to replicate the bridle/lines of the P3 or whether to ignore FS advice and go FDS.

Nothing's ever easy!
3->4 line is a lot of work for an old kite. I would go FDS.

Re: Healing power of sugar?

Most important thing to do is wash it with soap and water and get any debris out. Irrigation with 10% Betadine as well. Basically keep it clean and antiseptic so you don't get an infection. Aside from the above hygiene I leave minor cuts and scrapes alone and don't stress about going in the water. I...
