Re: Flysurfer speed 12m vs 15m for low end?

I bet you $500 that if you come to Island View on Vancouver Island (B.C Canada), you wont be able to get out riding on a standard 15m Speed3 with a Spleene door 154 X ??? (cant recall the exact dimension but is is pretty big) under 13kts. (well at 12kts you could be able and maybe stay upwind with a...

Re: Switch Kites - Users/Buyers beware

After much consideration I think the title is OK, since my original first post wasn't intended as a derogatory post (I think), and I do believe is completely accurate, I was not stopping people from buying the kites, I was merely informing them of a possible material fault, letting the forum users ...

Sellers that do not post prices, Why? (call for prices)

I have always wonder why some kite/W/S shop do not post the price of the gear they sell on their website? I am somewhat of a compulsive buyer, and if their price would have been posted back in ~2002, well they would had made lots of money with me.. Instead, I go somewhere else, and become loyal to t...

Re: Flysurfer speed 12m vs 15m for low end?

I guess we all have a different perception of wind strenght... Maybe some place there is almost no wind on the beach but a lot more on top, which make people believe that they are actually riding in less wind. Also, I see 9m-12m kite droping on the water / or rider come up the beach before wind dies...

Re: Flysurfer speed 12m vs 15m for low end?

Do not buy the 15m !!! Because of these 2 things you said: *** I've only used LEI kites in the past and typically don't much enjoy any of them larger than 12m. *** And ***(I am 70 kg/150lb)*** Also that you would use it with a surf board or a decent light wind twin tip. In most place I prefer the 12...

Re: Flysurfer Speed 4 - 8.0 & 10.0 review

Thanks Gunnar, you guys are great with feedback, I am pretty sure that ill be fine (as I said I can ride the Speed 3 15m for 4-6 hours many days in a row without any problems) so if the Speed4 10m is similar to that 15m (S3) ill be more than fine. The way you describe how the pressure works on the S...

Re: Flysurfer Speed 4 - 8.0 & 10.0 review

Thanks for the quick reply. I am not complaining about Flysurfer, neither Ozone Edge, they listen to the mass, and this is what they need to do in order to satisfy them. (right choice to do obviously) It just sucks for me and the 5%-10% of people that either prefer low bar pressure or have to get ki...

Alex Rider: Any word on bar pressure?
The Speed4 now has a Stopper???
Does that mean that the bar pressure is stronger/higher than Speed3? How much more?

Speed 4 Bar pressure ?

Does anyone know how is the bar pressure of the Speed4 compare to the Speed3 and/or Psycho4 ??? Due to now crappy chronic tendonitis, I can't ride anything else than Psycho4, Speed3 Flysurfer and Ozone Edge 2012 and before (2013 Edge reviews say it has more bar pressure). Even the 2012, I won't be a...
