Re: Foil kites on foil boards?

Got to disagree with this statement Peter “ The only situation where I have seen a problem with foilkites”, there is another when foil kites suck, rain, foil kites especially big ones suck in the rain.

Re: 15m Sonic V2 for a newer kiter?

I'm thinking of getting a 15m Sonic V2 , because there is a good deal on it. I usually fly a 17m Ozone Edge on a twintip, or an 8m Pansh Genesis on the snow. How can I expect the Sonic V2 kite to fly, compared to eg a Flysurfer Soul or Pansh A15? I've been kiting for 2 summers and 1 winter. Just st...

I get 56 out of 60 days good kiting in Western Australia, but that doesn't give the adrenalin of being chased by pirates.
But your season is short, November to April, the other 7 months are very average.

Re: Please help me find a slow leak!

I had one of those, a real bugger to find. Found it by pumping up the bladder with a tiny bit of pressure, this expanded the bladder and opened the hole enough to find. Problem is you need a swimming pool,and if it’s a 17 mtr it will have to be a big one. Ozone do replacement bladder sets for a reas...

Re: Does anyone just leave the bar connected?

If You have a problem with a modern bar because it wasn’t rinsed, please name and shame the manufacturer. I don’t rinse bars, salt water or fresh water, and haven’t had problems with anything made in the past decade. Regarding bars and to rinse or not. What bars currently available have no alloy pa...

Re: Foil board size

I would just go the 90cm mast, easier to learn on as you get more margin for error regarding height control. The 4’2 is the pick size for daily use. The 4’6 will be slightly easier to learn on but you will end up on the 4’2.

Re: Sonic 3 long mixer

Nice video thanks! I have a few Sonic 2 kites which are getting out of tune after a couple of years use. Did anyone perform a long mixer test by a similar method as in the video? Or otherwise, how is it done? I saw the lines have reduced length by a few percent at least but do not feel like complet...

Re: where do foil kites start to leak when they get old?

I wonder how much the tiny leaks from the seams matter, considering the size and number of the intakes. Could it be more to do with bridle tuning causing tip folds the low pressure in the kite?

Re: Bye Soul, hi UFO or Alpha maybe?

You will find your 10 Soul has a better top end than the 8 UFO/Cloud. I use the 8 Cloud up to 12 knots, after that I’m on the 6.2 or smaller. No struts really don’t like being overpowered, they start fluttering and become a bit of a handful but then again it isn’t what they are good for. They allow ...
