Re: Kite Surfboards vs "normal" Surfboards

With respect to non-kite specific equipment I purchased a Zap Ace 54” Skimboard that cost just under £300 back in 2015 and works perfectly well for my needs.
It’s fully decked out with unifiber deck pad so no need for waxing and no fins or straps to worry about either.
Just jump on and go!!

Re: Bladders in foils

I owned the land based version of the Mosquito Pro, 7.5, 5.5 and the 2m and used them for buggying. They were beautifully constructed and offered superb up wind performance. I saw a guy one day learning to kitesurf with the KS version, however the kite spent most of the time in the water which I put...

Re: Ozone Chrono V4

Would have preferred if Rob Whittle had presented the Chrono V4, just personal preference really!
Not sure that I’m in the market for the V4 as my V1’s work just fine for my needs.

Re: DIY pulley line replacement

You can make and replaced PB1 & PB2 pulley lines without having to replace the entire speed system. I use Liros DSL 2.4mm 600KG Sleeved dyneema. If you have access to a sewing machine and with practice you can make your own sewn bridle line loops as needed. Those Ronstan pulleys work very well and g...

Re: Ozone Chrono V4 vs Flysurfer Sonic V3

What is the rubbish here talking about sand in the trailing edge? Hi Foil. I think they are referring to sand trapped in the trailing edge seam like in the photo below. I have never had this issue with my 13m Ozone Chrono V3 Ultralight. @foil - I know you have owned several foil kites from both Ozo...

Re: Ozone Chrono V4 vs Flysurfer Sonic V3

Ozone closed cell foil kites are (at least were) famous to collect fine sand to trailing edge, not sure Chrono V4 though if bad design has been upgraded. I've never observed such behavior with my Flysurfer kites. What's different in Flysurfer's design that prevents sand building up in the trailing ...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

To have to replace pulley bridle lines that are out of tolerance in my view is wasteful. Spoken like someone who has never maxed out their mixer trying to tune around shortened pulley lines... :roll: I can't imagine having the mindset of not replacing consumable parts of a foil kite mixer when they...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

With the large uptake of foil kites I predict there will be some demand for people who know how to tune the bridle system. And probably some bargains to be had when those who can’t be bothered learning sell their problem kites. Flysurfer say their silicone cloth is good for over 1000 hours, that’s ...
