Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Have you tested the 10m standard cloth in comparison. Is the weight difference significant in those small sizes? I had the 12m in the standard fabric and I notice a significant difference in thickness and weight. Will have to see how durable the lighter fabric is over time. Its very delicate feelin...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Another test of the 10m kestrel lighter fabric version yesterday in very light winds. 24m lines. 80kg rider. 1850cm2 monofoil (similar to a 1200-1400cm2 standard foil). Kite does not disappoint. The very fine bridles combined with 1.2mm race lines on SK bar further reduce drag. Here is the wind grap...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Recently received my 10m Kestrel ultra light version. Again impressed with the quality of the construction. The light fabric version is very feather weight. My feel as an owner of various FS kites is that its entire construction is equivalent to the canopy cover of say the sonic 3, maybe even a bit ...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic 4

Hello everyone. Recently I had a super fun light wind kite foil freerace/freeride session with the Flysurfer Sonic 4 12 m. This kite is way more stable than the Sonic 3 13 m is very fast upwind and downwind. Here's a short video. Have fun and ride safe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH3OMK4QQpw If...

Re: Ad blocker message

Are u connecting via your phone on wifi using your home router? Many home routers have automatic ad blocker. I get the red shutout if I try and view KF via wifi connection with ad blocker disabled. I dont get the message connecting via cellular and therefore dont having my wifi router (not ad blocke...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Problem I think solved. I am seeing from Alex’s video that u need to connect the center lines all the way up at the knot that splices off into the bridal lines. I did this for the steering lines but not the center lines - eg I was wrongly connecting center lines at the original knot for the turbo pu...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

9F215982-62F6-4261-A08B-0D803018752F.jpeg Thx Regis. This makes sense. One observation. When u are connecting the turbo pulley to your steering lines it seems to increase the distance of the z line. Eg the turbo pulley and associated rope create a lower connection point for the steering line then w...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

yes it is ok if you have completely removed the pulley , like I did What I am finding is that with the turbo pulley line removed in light wind my 12m kestrel isnt letting me completely sheet out the kite as when I had the 3rd pulley connected. Any thoughts Regis? Is this your experience? It is as i...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Wow. FunAlex, the 6m is a blast. I was able to try it today in high teens kts on a 1845cm2 x1 monofoil (equivalent to a 1400 cm2 standard front wing with fuse). Weight 80kg. 87cm pocket board. This is a special kite for sure. Higher aspect than the FS Soul but somehow more forgiving than my FS Sonic...

Re: Pansh Kestrel, high performance kite

Thanks Regis and Alex. Looking at my bar now I can see in my rush to get out I attached the steering lines to the second knot on the rear pulley system and not the first. This would have moved likely the neutral power setting on the bar throw 10 or cm up and combined with the higher than optimal win...
