Re: Slingshot UFO

Haven’t tried the UFO but owned the Peak 4 before moving to Clouds. Loved the Peak 4, best drift ever, and would still be using it except for relaunch. If you have a big open beach where the occasional swim is of no issue, go the Peak for ultimate drift. But, if like me a swim involves a rocky coast...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

- surf wings - high aspect, thick, a line of sizes I disagree with the thick surf wings with a kitefoil. Having used thick and thin 1200 sqcm wings of identical plan shape, the thin wins every time. Is faster when required but looses nothing in the low end. The new Naish kite surf wings are ultra t...

Re: Soul mixer test.

Hopefully someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I have just finished tuning a Sonic 2 using the long mixer test. Once you tune using the long mixer test, the short mixer test is irrelevant as the mixer is now adjusted to take into account of bridle shrinkage. There is no long mixer test on the So...

Re: Ozone Reo 5m what a mess!

Had the V3 5 mtr Reo, just didn’t work for foiling, little drift and very on and off. Sold it to a mate who disliked it to so gave him his money back. Off loaded it to a guy for his kids. Had the 4mtr Ozone Uno, so much better, and now the 4.8mtr Cloud which trumps them all.

Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VS VMG

I was in exactly the same position, wondering if a used race kite was a good freeride option. After much research and asking questions I came to the conclusion that used race kites are best avoided even though they are relatively cheap. I opted for a used FS Sonic 2, I like the Flysurfer product, it...

Re: My friend borrowed me a north vegas 2011. Can I use it to learn?

You will probably use the schools kites for learning so no problem there. After that an older kite isn’t a bad idea as you trash your first kite. Safety systems have been pretty good in the last 10 years too. Sometimes learning to relaunch an older kite is a great skill, I see proficient kiters stru...

Re: Foil for beginning and carving

Buy what you can get from your local kite shop in case you have problems.
Pick a foil that has many wing options as easier to upgrade and you won’t outgrow it
