Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

So whats your top end on the 7 with non mega wing? I don't know because I'm mostly interested in pulling myself into surf and then forgetting the kite. Only very rarely would I test the top end. And I've ridden the Levitaz Aspect wing only 3 or 4 times now. I'm almost always on the Cruiser. Yesterd...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Two sessions yesterday both with 20 meter lines. The 7 is the size I use most and would have been optimal for me in these conditions. I took the 5 then the 9. First tooling around underpowered on the HL 5 with a big wing. In lulls I would need a loop to start. Most of the time not. There was plenty ...

Re: Upwind Rotations

Ha! I have the opposite problem. I’d like to do a carving 360. When I make it around on foil it usually feels like I stop and pivot around the mast. I can’t figure out how to open up the turn. Most of the time the result is a swim. And downwind my turns are too wide only resulting in slack lines if ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Anyone mess with this tiny secret profile adjusters yet. I’m kinda curious on them. Go figure there’s a cyclone hitting today in Northern Africa and I’m without my kite. Kinda wondering what kind of effect I’ll get out of my 15m if I play with them a little. Yes. Not in Soul but in 2013 Speed 4 del...

Re: Atlanta kiting

I started in Augusta and kited Lanier once. Now I live in TX.

I would strongly recommend learning to get up wind before riding Georgia lakes.

The fingers in the shoreline turn a walk of shame from yards into miles.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

How is the hyperlink a good first foil? You accidentally tomahawk it and blow it up and you are fucked. With Flysurfer warranty, they’ll fix it for free. I sure wouldn’t want to fly my kite afraid all the time that I might damage it. Seems like we are reaching here. Not really hearing reports of ex...

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

Flysurfer deserves credit for taking risks like Triple Depower, Lotus Cloth and single skin Peak. Very cool brand IMO. But we have an Ozone dealer. Ozone tubes and foils fly on our beaches. Shop and friend demos are building their brand. By the time I get to see a FS kite in person they have moved o...

Re: Line strength for hydrofoiling ?

FWIW I measured the diameter of my Q-Power line bar lines today. Q-Powerline Pro 600 lb = 1.5 mm Q Powerline 300 lb = 1.3 mm This 1mm SK-99 Premium Ropes Alpha Ropes line is looking nice to me. Thanks for the links. I ordered enough for a 20m line set for an old bar that needs refurb. http://www.pre...

Beware fishing lines and carry a knife.

Yesterday I was sailing around the pier. Naturally I don't want to get in fishing lines and don't want a fishing kiteboarding clash for access. I was at least 1000 feet from the end of the pier and my hydrofoil caught long fishing lines. Had no idea they could go so far out. When trying to untangle ...
