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.
hmmmm. you compare a normale set up of a lei to a worst case set up of a flysurfer?
usually you unpack your fs kite, roll it out, walk out the lines upwind and off you go.
no real need to say that getting a fs kite into the air is just as quick as unrolling your tubekite and pumping the smallest strut
anyhow, imagine having a leak somewhere in your onepump system! that will take you a day or longer to search for.
so you cant compare a bridle tangle (which is caused by the rider most of the time or faulty packing after last session) on a flysurfer kite to a normal set up of an lei
anyhow, i dont really get the point of all that hating
even think its funny.
how many of you guys use PCs and how many do use MACs ? different systems but in the end everyone has fun writing a huge amount of stuff on kiteforums
i recently changed from inflatos to flysurfers and for me i am very happy with the kites and their performance. took a bit of time tio get 100% used to but give me one example of a systemchange you dont have to adjust to for a litle time
either way if the tube is the mac or the fs is the mac, if you come from a PC its simply different. most ppl demoing a flysurfer unfortunatly dont see the point that it is a defferent system you gotta adjust to and give it a chance.....! first time i tried a mac i hated it, after a few days i loved it and never wanted to go back
ok, think that was my sunday-pray for now! AMEN
ps-PMU, pls pn me for details
