Re: Flysurfer Soul

10m Soul for TT boosting in 14-20 knots. What line lenghts would you use? So far I only tried the standard 21m on my infinity-bar, and longer in light wind. What woukd be the advantages/drawbacks in taking off the 4m extensions and going wirh 17 m?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Shortening of steering lines. I have heard that some find that the Peak 4 performs better with shortened steering lines. Is this just for light wind? By how much? I suppose that it makes sense that it would depend on the size og the kite. And what overall line lenght do you guys use per size?

Gopro protective case

Do you take your Gopro out on the water as is, or do you use a watertight protective case?

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

A helmet saved my life. A gust trew me into a tree during self launching my kite. I woke up in the hospital, I still don't remember the incident, but the state of the helmet is proof enough. I definetely never became less cautious because of wearing a helmet. Not that I think this will change any mi...

Re: Self launch and self land option

I went out on my new Ozone Hyperlink 12m today in 12 to 19 mph winds. Launching fine. The wingtips collapsed but I flew it in a few figure eights until it inflated and the bridles straightened themselves out. These foils are amazing. I'm selling all my LEI. Crazy hang time, lofty jumps. But I need ...

Re: What foil kite for stormy weather on twintip

Leave the bridle flapping for a couple of seconds too long (say, the time it takes to walk from your bar to the kite) and there's spaghetti ruining your sesh. Do you guys have tips on handling/setting up foil kites in higher winds wrt bridle tangles? I do - from experience. You can put sand on more...

Ideal line lenghts for light wind foiling with a Soul 10 m. Any opinions?
Well, I never run my soul under 12 mt lines, for light winds I would go up to 19, depending on the conditions
How about longer? In the winter on snow i use a bar with 40 m lines in light wind.
