Supa,
I would like to see some video of your Core 19M, don't care if you loop it or not.
Would just like to see it moving in the air, want to see how it looks compared to some of the other monsters.
You have talked about it a lot, so bust out some video now! :naughty:

well, i have had similiar experiences with my 21m speed 3. hardly any wind and yet i can kite with my slingshot glide and still have fun. that first video looks like there is less wind than anything i have kited in with my 21m. it's a great kite, imo. i did recently see some guy on a 12m lithium? and a medium twin tip out kiting in very little wind when i came back in from riding the 21m, i did have plenty of power so it wasn't super light, but i dont' see how he stayed upwind, really good kiter. there were guys coming in with their 16m's and sectors and this guy on a 12 was still out there (no jumping though)

i think a lot has to do with just kiting skills, but put a 21m in the air and anyone can kite the light wind, flysurfers make it easy.

Wish i could show a video....don't have go pro...or anyone to film me

I can assure you however that at our beach spot we have all the 3 giant kites on the water at once

SP3 21...DYNO18..RIOT XR2LW 19

My 2 friends who are very good kiters who tried the 19 are totally amazed how fast /smooth it turns

They both shake their heads at how is it even possible to be so much fun on a short 52cm bar!!

We all ride surfboards....i have flown the 21 (65cm bar) over 200 hrs.....the 18 over 100 hrs...
And the 19 is the holy tube grail IMO

The kite has 27m lines (24+3m included)....effortless to pump...doe NOT feel like big kite at all

At 165lb the wind range i am capable of in summer wind is 8-18 knots on strap surfb

The SP3 21 can go in 1 knot less of wind than me (7kn)...not because it is better
But only because it is bigger in projected area...(average true 7 knots you can't jump 10 feet high)

The Dyno18 and Riot19 seem equal at low end on identical surfboards and rider weight

From 8 knots upward to 18knots those 2 kites have nothing to be envious about where i kitesurf

Moving through the air sooooo EZ smooth and fast it is beyond belief

True German engineering ultimate giant flying tube machine ever created to date :thumb:

I have a Speed 3 19M deluxe for sale - maybe 6 or 7 days on the water with it. PM for details. Not a kite for me - I've decided if it is so light that I need this kite I'd rather be doing something else.

Keep promoting your Flysurfers Paul

Good luck

In my opinion those kites peaked in 2010 ( i had 19SP2 & 21SP3)

I feel so happy that i will never have to do a mixer test again :lol:

Thank you Core Riot XR2LW 19M for creating such a perfect LW tube kite

Bye bye 21SP3.....i ain't missing you at all :bye: :bye:

Adding new colors just is not enough....IMO it is too little too late

People are smart... promoting outdated smartphones in new colors seems desperate

It is a new era for LW tube kite designs...

Give a true 8 knots of wind (not 7 or 6) to anyone who knows how to kite using any new 2012 LW tube

Does not matter how heavy or light you are

With the correct board you truly can have more fun and go just as fast as a 21 :bye:
