on various discussions with lei users they seem to think you cant jump with an arc very well, well maybe they cant so i have asked around and have a few points to make.

I would say that we are going as high as leis (as compared by somone watching on the beach).

The biggest difference that you see is: from the apex of your jump you glide back down, not dropping like a stone.

Also you don't have to be so precise with the control bar to get a good landing.


Due to the bottom skin giving us that little bit better L to
D ratio moves look more smooth and controlled.

Just some points that i agree with and have spoken to others around and they agree with,,, how does flysurfers compare to arcs jumping and leis?
