Re: Foilholio wants to destroy kiteforum - any help to stop him appreciated

Foolkookio is a notorious ram lover. His constant pro ram air lies and propaganda, under a variety of pseudonyms, was a sight to behold. Eventually his underlying kookiness spilled-over into outright slander and invective. I DO wonder if ram-loving weirdness is part of a bigger problem, i.e. There m...

Re: Exploding lines. Anyone had this happen? (picture in post)

Unfortunately, this is a common problem with ram air kites like Flysufer. Flysurfer has known about their EXPLODING KITES for almost 20 years, but has been unable to rectify the inherent flaws in ram air kites that lead to this happening. e.g. https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=4612 Please do you...

Re: I think we have a Troll problem

What did foilholio do? I mean to sue somebody. Foolkookio was a notorious ram lover. His constant pro ram air lies and propaganda, under various avatars, upset MANY people. Eventually his underlying kookiness spilled-over into outright slander and invective. I DO wonder if ram-loving weirdness is p...

Re: Foil kites on wet beaches

In my experience foil kites would start showing signs of age at 100 hours. LEI kites are still going strong at over 200 hours. Inflatables have a vastly superior lifespan cf ram airs After several weeks of use, ram air bridles typically stretch and deform, further compromising aerodynamic performan...

Re: Foil kites on wet beaches

Ram airs are INFERIOR in wet conditions. Ram riders describe flying wet ram air kites like flying a wet sleeping bag in the air. Other ram lovers say they have similar problems in heavy rain and in surf with spray. Ram airs become wet, heavy, difficult to steer, and just downright dangerous when lau...

Re: LEI vs Foil Kite Vertical Boosting

Very informative, I'm waiting for PMU to settle this question with logic, science and a view point detached from personal bias and hype. Thanks for the invitation to speak on this topic. Ram air kites ("foils") are grossly INFERIOR compared to inflatables for vertical boosting. As previous posters ...

Re: Warranty w Flysurfer - Failed Bridle Lines on Soul

I was middle of a jump and dropped hard due to the failure of a green bridle line on the port side. It was a scary moment. Has anybody worked through their warranty claims? Unfortunately this is a common problem with ram air kites in general and Flysurfer in particular. Ram air bridles are incredib...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2020

But the amount of swimming in, exponentially increases with the number of riding in this conditions. Happens to everyone. Thanks Downunder - you are 100% correct! And you allude to one of major problems with ram airs: swimming-in with a waterlogged ram air kite is a scary, dangerous NIGHTMARE. Chec...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2020

Well, it’s 2020. Ram lovers have had enough time now to recover from their huge NYE parties (catching dragons and fighting goblins on WoW) to refocus on the myriad problems of ram air kites, which they like to hide-away on their own special forum: https://kiteforum.com/viewforum.php?f=197 Many ram a...
