Re: I bought a Flysurfer Pulse2 6m...

You and always get longer ones, cut down and splice a loop - bit of a faff but will work.

Re: Ram air first session damage

the beauty of foil kites is that even in the most isolated of places - a needle and thread and some spinnaker tape can fix most damage and get you going again quickly

Re: just arrived a new 9mtr soul joins my family of foil kites, need advice!

I still have a quiver of psycho 3's 8 - 10 - 13 in the attic - the 8 is a brilliant kite still - but the progress the newer kites have really shows. My 13 mt Sonic2 is so so so much better than the 13 psycho3..upwind - jumping even turning speed - the sonic is about 2 mt longer as well

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

I have a quiver of 2006 Flysurfer psycho 3's and they are fine - not as much finesse as the modern Flysurfers but you can have a good time on them

Re: Best cities to live for year round kiteboarding

Living 45 minutes away from the coast cuts your real estate costs by half ...
Not if you live in London.. :D

I have at least 10 spots about an hours drive - depending on time of day - from SE London..so have all wind directions covered

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

I had an issue - once with the my Sonic 2 - would not inflate - wing tips kept collapsing - re did the mixer - even though it was not off - and since then has been perfect - for me at approx 70 kg the 13 is the biggest kite I will need for a twin tip
