Re: 6 kites in light wind test

Yes Mr. Cortex is right. The Speed4 21 Lotus is a very powerful kite but the only problem with this kite is that it doesn't turn fast at all. But again, what are you looking to do when its blowing 7 to 11 knots!!! You want to be able to go back and forth or push the limits and have a kite that resp...

Re: 6 kites in light wind test

OceanAdventures I checked out your web site and noticed you sell the Turbines, Contras, and Flite. How about doing a big kite write up on all four after you've had a chance to fly the Infinity? These are all great kites so it would be interesting to see a write up on them and how they compare to ea...

Re: f-one Bandit4

Something with you bar-setup is seriously wrong. I rode a Bandit IV 10 a couple of days ago and it flies beautifully unhooked. The Bandit IV is known for its great unhooked capabilities... If you bought the kite complete you should go back to your dealer and ask him to fix it. If you bought it kite-...

Re: What is the best wave riding kite?

As written earlier in this thread; there are so many different ways and styles to ride waves. So try a lot of different kites before you decide what suits *you*. Personally I really love the Caution-kites for waveriding. Got a full quiver of Spitfires just waiting for the spring to hit a bit more he...

Re: Flysurfer Speed3 wins hangtime-comp with ease

The wind was quite up'n down. My guess is that it was around 10 knots - 15 knots in the beginning of the final heat then it dropped to 10-11 knots during the last part of it.

10 minutes after the final the wind increased to around 20 knots. I got some really sweet hangtime from my Speed3 15 then. :D

Flysurfer Speed3 wins hangtime-comp with ease

A part of the swedish Flysurfer-team attended Öland Kitejam, which is one of the stages of the Swedish Kitesurfing Tour, this weekend. We really proved that the Speed3 is a hang-time monster. :D The final results (from www.kitetour.se): Hangtime: times during final (best hangtime during heat) 1. Pet...

Kiters in Bahrain?

Hiya, I'll be heading to Bahrain (Manama) to do some work in late february. Just wanted to check if there are any kiters staying/living there? Would be cool to get some more info about spots, winds, etc... and of course also to kite with some locals. I'll probably only be there for 4 or 5 days and w...

Re: Flysurfer Pulse 2 now with Infinity Bar included!

And now also the Outlaw (open-cell) comes with the Infinity as standard.

That only leaves the Dope (1,7 sqm trainer) without the Infinity. :lol:

I think iStethoscope should work good for this. You can download it for free on App Store.

Haven't got a broken kite to try on though. :wink:
