Re: Ozone Zephyr V5/6 17m or Ozone Hypelink v2 11/13m ?

A 11 or 13m foil kite is not considered light wind kites and you probally need 12knts or 13 knts + to just start riding on a big board on the 13m. A 17m lei will probally need 10knts plus to start riding. so in a nutshell u might have an edge on the 17m zephyr in 10 knts . But in lets say 14knts whi...

Re: Bigger board or bigger kite in light wind?

You can have fun in 8knts or more with a big board and big race kite say a 18m flysurfer sonic or similar type. 8knts however definately would be the cutoff,, below tht its foilboard territory. tested this extensively.

Re: I sold my flysurfer soul in favour of.

Flysurfer makes kites built for people looking to take their kiting skill to the next level. They make the highest performing foil kites out there hands down. The moment the poster ranted on about landboarding and about kites falling out the sky and too much power with turning loops i knew this pers...

Re: The real kite ranges

I think 14knts is the minimum thats needed to ride a twintip and just stay upwind on a 12m for the average person . The wind usual blows between a range so say 14 to 16 knts u will be fine. Starting ranges are usually not much fun so u really want to be in the middle range , so think 16knts or more ...

Re: Getting most power out of a foil kite

Its very simple , just practice to sheet a foil kite a little bit out on the upstroke. so dive the kite dwn and as it starts to move back up ease up on the bar a little bit and that's the secret to a foil kite. This allows the kite to accelerate . With experience u will feel how the kite behaves whe...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

What's with people launching their foil kites straight downwind lately ? Is this some type of new crazy fad . This is the 3rd new sonic video ive seen of the kite being launched the wrong way. Does this kite scramble the users brain. :lol: Hi, here's my first short session with the new Flysurfer Son...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Sorry bud but there were no lulls as in zero , none, nada ---steady 8 knts. your video is stupid and is no comparison as it clearly shows he is flying offshore and in a windshadow due to land mass behind and therefore the reason the kite falls into the water at the edge of the window . Im not gonna ...
