Re: Foil Kite folding in half when going upwind!?

I gave up trying to read through the back and forth, but would add this because I dont think it was said: This is a known issue with the LF elite. Not sure if it can be fixed by adjusting bridles. I heard it was because the air intakes are in the wrong spot. I've seen it on several different LF elit...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VMG

I got mine today! It came with the wingtips flaked (like an accordian) and the middle folded. I saw picture online where someone had flaked it instead of rolling. Is it ok to roll this kite? Seems like flaking it would be a lot more difficult out on the beach.

Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VMG

How does this compare to the Sonic2? Saw one in person, but havent gotten mine yet. VMG is definitely fast! The guy who had it said the 3 row bridle system makes for less tangled when launching and landing. Others have said on other posts that vmg has lighter bar pressure, worse relaunch (takes on ...

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

I gave it a go at the same time after coming off my 15m Sonic 2. It was a pretty good kite! Going upwind it was noticeably slower than the race kite (as expected), but other than that it did all the foil kite things well with no bad behaviors (no tip tucks or collapses at all). Going downwind it was...

Re: Efoil now shipping....anyone tossing their kite?

No, I like kitesurfing because of the kite. Have you tried it faxie? I talked to a kite foiler and wave foiler who had gotten a chance to ride the prototype Lift Efoil extensively last year. He was over the moon excited about it. However, he had the same issue of the price ($11k) and would not be g...

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour Ready to Rip at St. Francis Yacht Club

Looked like a great event! For kites: FONE kites look different from the Diablo V3s I've seen, so these are Diablo V4s? Are Ozone riders on R1v2 or prototypes? Flysurfer riders are on the new Sonic VMG which replaces the Sonic Pro Race. Off topic: What a confusing naming scheme from the original Son...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

I hope it leads to more racers and more regattas like it did last time! Even in the short amount of time that kiting was Olympic in 2012, the world championship had 150+ racers.

I don't know why so many people decided to start racing because of the Olympics, but I hope it happens again.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

The Soul blows the Hyperlink out of the water. Its not even a fair comparison. Its above and beyond better. Im not a flysurfer dealer, rep, team rider or anything. I had a hyperlink, tried the soul and wow. Its in a different class. I wouldnt say Ozone has the freeride market corners. The SOUL is c...

Re: Slingy & LF taking competitor wings

Slingshot has come it a lot. They've sold MHL Lift, LP, and Moses foils rebranded. They also sell Elf's foil kite. It doesn't bother me. If they see a good product and want to distribute it through their network of dealers, what's wrong with that? It not like there is a lack of options for foils on ...

Re: Delta Hydrofoil's George Hradil talks foil design and the future of the sport

Pretty wild that in 2018 we are seeing inflatable kites winning a course race, and TT boards placing 2nd! Not a course race, just a downwind (broad reach) distance race. The key to winning this year was not to crash. Last year in the same distance race there was half as much wind and I did the cour...
