Re: Is a Flysurfer Soul 18m too much for hydrofoil in light wind?

I've just bought 18m Soul to replace 17m Core Free. It has more power & flies far more happily in less wind. Prior to the Free, I had a Zephyr which needed much more wind than Free for 3 reasons, it's got 5 struts compared with 3 and it's not a true 17m, more like 15.5. I compared it both with my 14...

Re: Xr5 6m or 5m Boost 2 top end ??

I'd recommend checking out the 7m XR5, before deciding that the 6m is the one for you should you opt to go with Core. A friend has the 7m and it is a massive jump down from the 9m XR5 and when compared with a 7m Ozone Edge V9, both inflated, it sat inside it....! I can say from experience that the ...

Re: Carved Imperator V vs Nomad Prototype Ultra-Carbon

I've had a Nomad 3 years now and am very pleased. I sent email to Carved stating what I wanted and asked difference between the Carved Imperator and Core equivalent which was about 60% price in UK. The reply was buy the Carved, you won't go wrong, no justification. I was unimpressed! I sent the same...

Re: Ozone vs Core

It's a shame that such threads degenerate and we end up with Basil Fawlty-esque 'Don't mention the Core'.... I actually started a Core thread here which managed to stay on topic, so I mentioned it once, but think I got away with it.... After just 5 minutes demoing an Enduro V1 on their release, I re...

Re: Kite collapsing on itself during down loop !

Aiming for 10psi seems too much for 57kg rider. If it really is needed, then changing pump to electric ion (or other make) or possibly a SUP high pressure/low volume ought to negate problems with not having enough mass to achieve pressure. I would have thought that so long as it retains pressure, th...

Re: Stormriding

I'd forgotten how good it is to see you ripping on your fantastic boards. The carving turns are amazing. Thanks for sharing video.

Re: Core Section 2 - anyone own/tested one?

Thanks for taking time to write such a comprehensive review NEkitesurfing - really helpful and it sounds like the 12m Section 2 will be spot on for what I have in mind. I have 17m Free LW and XR5s in 13,5, 11 & 9m, all bought in last few months & sadly have had little use due to dreadful wind condit...

Core Section 2 - anyone own/tested one?

I've searched the web for reports on how the Section 2 performs and only found the Gleiten TV review which is very positive. So was wondering if anyone here has flown one and how it compares with original Section, what it's like when used with a foil and how it relates to other wave kites? I'm most ...
