Re: Who said you can't loop a foil kite?

For the moment unfortunately I did not yet have the chance to test the Soul but every guy I know who tried it reported that it's very similar to a lei, especially in the smaller sizes so I presume it's not very different to loop also. The good stuff is being able to loop a kite this way… :-)))

Re: Speed 5 21 or Soul 21

Thank you for the feedback Mossy, always good to hear impressions from people who had the chance to test the two models side to side. I use the 21 only few times a year in super light days so I'm not planning to switch for the moment, but I have the impression that 99% of the future sales will be So...

Re: Speed 5 21 or Soul 21

I know I'm going out of topic but… as time passes and the Soul is being used by a larger number of kiters, I have the impression that the Speeds made their time. I own a Speed 21, I ride it only with tts and I'm happy with it but it seems the Soul is far better in every department. Am I wrong?

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Although....having flown Speed and Soul I can’t imagine anyone choosing the former after they fly the Soul. This is a very interesting point. Let me say first of all that I'm really looking forward to test the Soul but for the moment it didn't happen. In these cases, the brain (and the monkey) give...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I did not yet have the opportunity to test the Soul but I saw a 12 and a 15 on the beach and flying. Seems it's really a great kite, maybe too "LEI like" for Speed lovers but for sure innovative. There's one thing that disappointed me a little bit: the bag. The kite comes with a, let me say, "poor" ...

Re: Weight difference

Thanks to you all for the answers guys, very interesting. About the foil kites, I understand that they work and behave in a very different way (I own a Speed 5 21), so they can't be directly compared to inflatables. My question is more related to the difference between full framed 3 or 5 struts kite...

Weight difference

I'm wondering what is the actual weight difference between a single strut and a standard 5 strut kite, e.g. a 12 or so. The question is not curiosity only. Yesterday, waiting for the wind (that eventually came!), we were talking about foil kites and single strut kites in light wind. A friend of mine...

Re: Epirb? flares? 2 way radio set to maritime channel, cell ph in a waterproof case?

For me, always mobile phone in my vest. It may seem incredible that nobody notice someone who needs help but it happens. First of all, on our lake there's a time of the day, late afternoon, with a particular light condition: you just can see quite nothing at water level until you're very close. Seco...

Re: What's the dumbest thing you have seen a newbie do?

In Como lake a floatation device is mandatory and I always wear one. That said, I don't like this thing in the waves.
