Hi all,

Check out this picture of the Flysurfer Psycho 15.5 in action. It seems to be a pretty high jump for a kite which can get you going in 8-9 knots. All the other kites that I have tried that work in this low wind range give you low floaty jumps, but nothing really high. What are other people's experiences?

Regards,

Marc

Marc, that's brilliant, are you going to post that on the other forum?

Yeah you're right. But a safety- leash wouldn't make that jump less high ;<{

what where the wind conditions for this jump.

I have been out the last couple off days on the 19 RRD supertype and i have benn getting some high and long jumps when the wind is around 12 knots.

A mate whos about 60 kgs gets some good high floaty jumps on his ocean rodeo 21.5 in about 10 knots.

good camera work shooting up to the kiter like that helps with jump heights

cheers

Louis - Mr.I-Forget-My-Toro - I'm not sure if the guy already uses the spinable safety system of Flysurfer.

The Psycho's are likely to get delivered with them.

Would be great to meet you. Somehow it didn't work out so far.

Need a buddy when Nico is going to SA.

Didn't want to make the drive to Lago di Como that day, because the weather situation looked worse than on Saturday. Bad luck - wrong decission.

Well, one of the reasons for this guy's high jump in low winds is that nice juicey wave he is launching off of.

Let's see how high that kite goes in low winds off of flat water that we all most often ride in.

LOL you seriously think thats a wave???
It looks like a huge dune and as for the jump it is very high but I be he is very well powered up. and is in like 15+

But then again it is hard to juice some pictures for info
