hey Pumpy
I am with you man these Ram airs are really pissing me off lately, it used to be me only at the beach at my local spot ripping on my foils... But now the local guys are tired of watching me ride alone tired of watching me jumping 10-15 meters high and Flying 100m down wind and now they have bought Flysurfer Speed 4's and are all over the place riding in my way when the wind is lite jumping all over the place learning new tricks with the extra hangtime that only a flysurfer can give you and now all the girls that are usually checking me out are looking at them instead!!!! What a bummmer..... :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Relaunching still seems to be an issues. I have read on here that Johnny H dropped his Chrono in the Ronstan race and had to abandon race. They are probably good but I doubt they are light wind miracles as some claim. Maxime won the 1st foil gold cup on the new Dyno even when the other big names were on the Chrono.

Foil kite and foil board are not very compatible
Foil board need more power to start, less power after planing
Foil kite is the opposite, gutless to start, overpowered when going.

Your a Better kiter than me !!

I learned to kite on ram-airs +10 years ago, and
I see a few mistakes your making. Rather than embarrass myself and You, would
you please contact user name of "MonkeyAir" , and ask him to watch your
video to correct a few flaws in your use of these machines ? There quite different than
using an LEI.

MonkeyAir is an instructor on this forum, and one of the Better ram-air
kite fliers in the USA.

It's pretty easy to see. No wind fully depowered. Hmm wonder why there's no power. On top of that the S3 21m is the slowest kite ever. Chrono 18 is nothing like the Speeds. Lot's of grunt more than Edge 19. Can you test a Chrono 18 and an Edge 19 back to back? If Ozone dealer they must have both for you to test.

Yeah that looks like the opposite of fun. We've all been there. Far from shore, wind dies. The difference with an inflatable is that you can wrap the lines and swim it home.

I had a Speed in 2007 and it always seemed to stall in the first power dive. Wing tips would curl in, kite would drift back into the power zone, and just as my ass was falling back in the water BAM, it would fill with air and yank. I'm sure it was partially low wind and user error, but damn. Inflatables always just felt more intuitive to me.
