Re: Adding LEI kites to my Soul 15m

I personally would pick a Soul 10 or 12 as the next size down. The question for you is which is more important looping or a kite with great hang-time? If you want kites that give you similar performance to the Soul look at high aspect ratio kites like FS Boost, Ozone Edge, North Orbit, Core XR6. I h...

Re: Kite size?

Get yourself a 10m soul. Will give you the same power as a 17m wirh more lift quicker , more hangtime in less wind and still keep you on the water down to lei 9m weather. Huge range, huge power huge hangtime. Can’t go wrong! Are you kidding me? A 10m Soul in 12 knots??? Maybe on a foilboard, but no...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Today, we had a good comparison between the Sonic3 18m and the Gold Flite 17m. Wind was intermittent and light with both kites on the water at times. Relaunch - Sonic3 was better and took less of a puff to restart. Turning - the Flite turns far better. Power - Sonic3 as a larger kite and clearly has...

Re: OR Flight - Aluula

Today, I was at a local kite spot. The wind was light. I started on a 18m Sonic3 and then sized up to a 23m VMG2 as the wind lightened up. The wind continued to drop and I decided to go in rather than risk dropping a big foil in the water. The last guy on the water was flying an Aluula Flight 14.5 w...

Re: Kite foiling is dying sooo fast

The wingding is great. In addition to boats, it gives us kiters another thing to boost over!

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

I wonder if this is going to be a good choice for Boosting? I like my Sonic 2's 13m but I Think it's dying on me Yes, it is great for boosting, but I would consider buying a 13m Sonic3 instead. The VMG2 has thin racing lines on the bridles, so it is likely the life of the bridle will be less than a...

Re: What a piece of shit town

Well there lyeth the basis of our disagreement.. I do indeed dwell within a bubble of my own perfection, quite happy in it, happy that is until some 32foot behemoth hoves into view either blocking the highway, or reducing the availability of space for others, whilst consuming God knows how many gal...

Re: What a piece of shit town

OP you missed out. HR is awesome, people are great and super friendly. Spot is killer. I understand getting frustrated, but I think it is entirely reasonable for a city to prioritize people with annual passes for parking during Covid. Getting a parking ticket when you park outside of a spot is not ...

Re: What a piece of shit town

Does it make you feel better to insult a person that drives an RV? He had a bad experience and rather than trying to understand his point of view, you put him down. Guess you didn’t know that he is a retired teacher? Or that he helps disabled children in his free time? He is a good man with a big he...

Re: The Next Evolution of Woo - Woo Pro

Yeah they answered that question on their Facebook page. They are looking into using watches but right now they say the GPS is not good enough in the current line of watches. For now it has to be a phone. I have been enjoying having my phone for 2 reasons. 1st is music while riding, 2nd is I have b...
