line plan for Fysurfer Soul

...anyone seen one anywhere? Not in the usual place on the FS website, and google drew a blank too.

Re: Speed 5 21 or Soul 21

Nice... I can't afford to lose too much low end though, my next kite up is a 21m. Wonder if anyone can comment on this: think it's fair to say that both the Soul and Speed5 would have comparable (or better) low-end performance over the old Speed3 that I would be replacing? Or can only a Speed replac...

Re: Speed 5 21 or Soul 21

Any opinions on which design would perform better in gusty conditions? I'm actually thinking 12m rather than 21.

Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

Thanks for all the suggestions. To cover off a few: - I've got a massive Flydoor so I can't blame the board. - The kite has no damage or porosity so can't blame the kite either. To Adventure Logs' point though: I have had internal straps break before, only on my Lotus 21m, maybe a design weakness on...

Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

fernmanus: I think I'm the only one in town here with a 21m and several times I've also been the only person having a solid session on the water (though foil boards are cutting into that! ;) But my low end just doesn't feel low enough -- when it's blowing around 10 kts I know there should be power, ...

Flysurfer-specific training?

Does anyone know of courses, camps, instructors specific to Flysurfer kites, preferably in North America or the Caribbean? We have plenty of local instructors on tube kites, but I feel that some of the things I want to improve on (eg, optimizing light and gusty winds) need someone who's an expert on...

Speed5 slow to open??

Anyone else have this problem? Or better yet, a solution? No matter how much I pre-inflate my 9m Speed5, it launches with both wings tucked toward the centre of the kite, and fly like that for a good 3-4 minutes before something happens (still haven't been able to figure out what) and it pops fully ...
