Yeah, the need for a higher level of maintenance gives me the shits but . . . when you get out on the water and it all comes together, there's nothing like a foil! :thumb:

a brand new flysurfer speed retails at about £2000.00 which is about $3000.00 so I see no reason why somebody would pay $4000.00 for a second hand kite :rollgrin:


To be clear: that is a 2002 3 line Psycho - the original, and it was Psycho to fly. The only think quite like it could be an FARC or X10. Imagine a kite appreciating in value!

Why not have some diversity in your quiver ?
You will then love both foils and inflatables, both inflatables and foils - with a passion !! ... because you will know which conditions and daily preferences invite which kite into your session.

Simple, right ?

Foils are better on snow - just roll them out and go, and they keep flying when the wind dies down and the LEIs can't fly.

Awesome...thought this was a kitesurfing forum? Hey you guys might be right about kites on the snow, but heck that doesn't help me I live in the west coast of Australia who saw snow only in the last ice age..lol.

So back to kitesurfing, anyone heard anymore on the chronic?
