Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

One more comment: you have every right to call the wastewater treatment plant and ask to speak with a representative in person. I think you would be surprised to find out the information that they will share if you are polite and non-accusatory. You might find that they care about the quality of the...

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

Kitegirl, you are making a big assumption. You are assuming that because the wastewater treatment is old and nearby that it is the cause of the contaminated water. How can you be so sure? Unless, you test the water that is being released from the plant, you cannot be sure. I doubt it is the treatmen...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

I really like the Sonic 2. I don’t race, but I like the high performance for boosting and ripping up wind. However, the Sonic 2 just sucked in wind that was less than optimal. If the stability could be improved without sacrificing the performance, I would buy a couple. I still think I will keep my S...

Re: Speed 5 vs. Soul

I replaced my quiver of Speed 5 and Sonic 2’s with Soul.
In addition to better relaunch and turning, the Soul is more stable than the Speed. Perhaps, not a big deal for smooth ocean wind, but snowkiting or on inland lakes, it is a world of difference.

Re: Vacation warriors - a new breed emerges and it scares the crap outta me

What no comments on how funny Exal’s video is on page 2?

Here is my 2 cents on this topic. I can’t believe we are criticizing people that spend their money on lessons. Shouldn’t we be more upset with the idiots that buy a 15 year old kite for $100 and refuse to take a lesson???

Re: Welcome To California - No Kitesurfing

California has a lot of beaches that ban kitesurfing outright in the LA area. Yes, there is a lot of coastline, but is it worth it to drive a couple hours for a session? Kiters in the Bay Area have it good, lots of wind and launches that aren’t great for sun bathers. LA has moderate wind, but less t...

Re: Flysurfer Bar Length for 12m Soul

I use the 50 cm bar. I usually fly the kite in 20+ knots. If I was flying it in lighter winds, I might use the longer bar, but probably not because I am too lazy to switch bars.

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

I agree, excellent review. A couple comments: 1. I was born and raised in Utah. “Ute” is being too kind, “Utard” is the proper designation. 2. The 15 minutes you spent trying to get a snarled Soul kite to straighten out will decrease with experience. So far, I have never had to pack up the kite due ...

Re: Efoil now shipping....anyone tossing their kite?

While I would never toss my kite for an efoil, I can see a lot of potential in the efoil. I love kiting, but the wind does not always blow when I have time to spend on the water. Sure, I could go out on a paddle board, but they are bulky and slow. I could go out on a jet ski, but they are loud and a...
