Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

My Soul 12 flew perfectly out of the bag too, about 20 hrs on it now and absolutely no issues. I don’t use a FS bar so maybe a bar issue rather than a kite issue.

Re: freeride to race foiling

I went this route and bought a Levitaz Bionic, bloody hard to ride with that tiny V stab. Changed the stab and instantly a great foil to ride, a lot easier and now a pleasure to ride. Still can’t gibe it but that will come. Speed is addictive, still love the big wings when the winds up but in the li...

Re: is carbon much better?

I have both, a carbon Levitaz and an alloy Naish setup for waves. Love using both, no corrosion issues on the Naish but I do disassemble every 2 weeks and all the joints and screws are greased. Alloy masts are very stiff and amazing value compared to similar stiffness in carbon. If you want speed yo...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

As far as I know Flysurfer has never updated kites on a yearly basis. Soul V2 could be a long way away, the current version is pretty bloody good.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Hi foilholio, I run 15 mtr lines on the 12 Soul. And when I say multiple transitions I mean a jibe every 10-20 mtrs as you ride the wind swell downwind, the soul just doesn’t keep up. I would rather have a quiver of foils but after experimenting I found they just weren’t suited to this riding style.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I own the 12 Soul and use it exclusively for my race foil. Great straight line kite for going places but I really don’t like it on my surf foil. It’s very powerful, easily riding in 8 knots on a race foil but it’s slow turning, no good for the surf foil where your doing multiple transitions in quick...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Also consider a full carbon bar. As you tend to leave the bar attached to the foil it tends not to get rinsed and corrosion under the grip becomes an issue. Happened to my old FS bar so now use carbon bars instead.

Re: Mast length....?

I use the 70 on the Naish Medium Surf wing in large bay chop. It is a very forgiving wing for breaches and the 70 gives a more connected feel to the wing.
And fitted to a pocket board the setup fits in the car with no disassembly, yep, I’m lazy.

Re: New foiler- straps setups

I have been using the setup on this board, a pocket board and now a race board and foil for the past 18 months. Never once have I become locked in during a crash, and there have been a lot.
