Re: Expats and lifestyle numbers growing?

Unfortunately - this is before Kiting was around - worked in the oil industry - 10 years of working month on month off - 6 months vacation a year......travelled a lot .....if it was now - a couple of light weight kites and a split board would be added to the luggage

Re: Flysurfer recommendation?

Psycho1 How very dare you.............the Pyscho 1 was a blinding performance kite for its time.....boosted huge and relaunched well......ok impossible to kite loop.....oh and really strong - took loads of damage. Kite did exactly what is was marketed as. The psycho 2 whist a better performing kite...

Re: Kite won't lift to zenith (Flysurfer Warrior)

I had a maniac 9 and a manica 3.5, both of which started with the pressureless depower - I fitted the wac system which made them a bit better - more control.

kites were crap at jumping though

Re: Kite range question - are small kites really fun?

tiny kite - big board - loads of wind is silly fun. I have a 3.5 mt foil that gets rolled out once or twice a year - doesn't jump very well but is great fun flying it round like a mosquito - you can ride fast and just blat about.

Re: Chrono / Sonic 15 or 18 for light wind and a Twin Tip ?

I find a 12 / 13 flysurfer ideal in those winds - I'm 70 Kg and find they are the right size to throw around and jump with. Going bigger you will ride ok but not have the weight to really shift the kite. My buddy who is 30 Kg heavier than me will ride the 15 all the time as that is a good fit for him.

Re: smaller flysurfer speed 4

And they hate being left flapping on the beach...........Always sand the downwind tip in high winds or you will have a birds nest of epic proportions

Re: How Many LEI Riders Own A Foil Kite For Ultra-Light Wind

I just watched Hawaiis video ......it's super light wind....you completely depowered the foil - flew it to the edge of the window and then wondered why it stalled and fell over. And then you have the temerity to complain about the kite. I would be ashamed to have posted that video...it makes you loo...
