Re: Flysurfer Soul

nice one Slide.....do you still have to be a member of the club to landboard at Branny....I only kitesurf there now and it's open for all. Try going to Rhossili beach for landboarding - you have a good solid kilometer of very hard packed sand....and the beach from Le Touqet to Berck in north France ...

Re: Sonic II ...Mixer issues ?

Update: Took the kite to my local landboarding spot.....checked mixer on both sides and was out only by a few mm. Wind was around 5- 7 mph - if that - Hot launched after fully inflating kite and it worked perfectly - no tip tucks - tips stayed out perfectly. In fact the kite was one of the most well...
