Re: Fish collisions

I've hit some Carps on my local spot.. some light blows to full stops.. never saw a dead carps afterwards...(we don't eat carps in the Netherlands) There is commercial fishing on my local spot.. I 've got the idea that I'm not really appriciated by the local commercial carp fish operator and his cli...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Super gusty session on narrow river with strong current yesterday on 3m Peak. Amazing how relaxed and at ease I am in bad “Swiss cheese holes” wind with this kite. I couldn’t tack with foot switch to weak side for the life of me, however, as wind was so on and off and I had trimless bar set for gus...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2021

As a long time foil kite user I only agree with Pumpy on one point, unassisted self landing of a foil kite in higher wind ranges. Unassisted meaning no hooks, anchors or other devices, just get to back to the beach and drop the kite on the sand. I keep an Ozone Edge in the quiver for those days whe...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Janus, how on earth have you tied those nice "knots" into the bridles? Looks phantastic! Zero chance of tangling :thumb: Thx Onda, I only do this for drying, when dry I take it down and take the loops out and put the briddle in the folded kite. How to make those loops?.. think I learned it in kinde...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I always start sideways, sand or sandbag the folded tip. Won't descibe landing with assistance. Landing without assistance can be done with an landing stake or what I do if there is not a little windshadow from a little hill, bush or fence; put my foilboard on the beach or grass, front of board and ...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2021

I don't care which kite is better, faster or whatever.. sometimes the feeling gets important too.. 8)
I like ramairs, singe skin foils and tubes.
Enjoy whatever you fly and grow up Pumpy.. :bye:

Re: High 5 going wrong

Re: Flysurfer Soul

There will always be a situation in which you will get water inside a twinskin. To keep it at minimal water entering as possible you should not resist the float and drift off the kite, wind and yourself on the water.. standing in shallow water or trying to swim upwind will cause extra water entering...
