Hey if that’s how you pick kites more power to you snowflake. I find this both hilarious and sad.

I already have a Flysurfer Soul so don’t need converting. Doesn’t mean you’re not being a bit of a twonk.

Back to the topic...

Flew the 21 Soul yesterday and today. Yeah, it rocks. Selling my hardly used Speed 5 21.

The shorter bridles are really nice on a kite that big. The kite moves like an 18, doesn’t feel like you have to adjust like you always had to in the past for the slowness of the 21 compared to an 18 or 15m Speed. Tips never folded and the wind was less than ideal yesterday. Hang-time is ridiculous.

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 deluxe. The effect is small and is mostly changing reflex and stability when the lines are slack. Could use for example if you have a kite that drifts right or left depowered.

The effect you will get is to rapidly fly upwards whilst screaming.

f*** yea, gonna win that woo record. But really in the package also is a replacement front line which I broke on my Sonic2 11m. That's the kite for the cyclone. Plus its one of those lower pussy level ones, so no big whoop.

You haven't jumped till you have been on a 15m foil in 30knots. There is a reason Toby uses large kites in high wind, the hang time is nuts. Len10 10m in 40+knots. 8m Foil 45knots nuts too :-).
