The claims made by Flysurfer were NEVER true; not today, not yesterday. Simple outright lies and exaggerations. The biggest lie that still get some currency today is the bullshit about "two FlySurfer kites covering the same wind range as three LEI."schmoe wrote:By the way, the information on this Flysurfer page was relevant 4 years ago. Today most of the points are simply not true.
That I donâ€™t agree with you. Before the advances in LEI in design, flysurfers had some advantages that were major.Pump me up wrote:The claims made by Flysurfer were NEVER true; not today, not yesterday. Simple outright lies and exaggerations.
hmmmm. you compare a normale set up of a lei to a worst case set up of a flysurfer?schmoe wrote: A bridle tangle on flysurfer can mean that you do not go out. In one case I have seen an entire day on a vacation lost after the kite went inside out and no one could figure out how to resolve it. In that crazy case, someone else had a flysurfer kite exactly the same model, so the guy took the bridle apart and rebuilt it based on the other kite. The chances of having two same flysurfer models from two people in such a small remote place is near zero. For me I had many lost hours where the wind is cranking because of the bridles. I rather inflate 5 tubes and know that the setup time is exactly 10 minutes, no more no less, than have setup time that is 70% 5 minutes and 30% an hour. And now with one pump, the setup time of a tube is less, so it is not an advantage of the foil anymore.
