Re: Flysurfer Soul

My first 12m Soul session in 7-11kts. A no go wind for 12m HL. Soul is faster and more agile - that is why it gives more power thanks to: 1.higer AR https://images82.fotosik.pl/1041/be1fb4625ced7501med.jpg 2.Cleaner surface thanks to more cell count 41 vs 31 https://images82.fotosik.pl/1041/96cd46e...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Pictures of billowing show kites are thick, but because kites are not in flying shape cell shape looks worse than it is in reality. TE's of either kite don't look very good, but again FS with higher cell count (thinner cell) has to be better. One year old HL is not as airtight as a new kite. Seams ...

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

I usually shorten front line lengh to adapt my 18m Pulsion to marginal winds, and make them longer for stronger winds. IMO it helps the kite to stay in the air at 3-6 knots, and increase a bit upper range. I suspect we can gain the same or better effect by changing the distances AB;BC;CZ. If AB=BC=(...

Re: AVS: Anti Ventilation skin By Zeeko

WOW!
That will take away a lot of my fear riding steeper waves.
Increased comfort will add 3-5 knots to my max speed as well.
Well done, ZEEKO.
How much drag it costs?
Does it works at any speed?
Will you apply if for Spitfire wings?

Re: Tuning

Sorry, Peter, not all over the world. In older part of it there are some needs and tips. Hi there I am not crazy particular about most hydrofoil stuff, it all seems to work, mostly just design. I sand to about 320 and lose interest usually. I have been fixated on the rear stab angle forever, but the...
