Re: Flysurfer LCL doesn't work?

Direction of pull force matters too where is weakest point at specific time. Lines snapping causes kite to shoot weird direction.

Re: Light wind kite

Depends your "wind scale". Before Hydrofoil, with my lightweight and big TT board, my Flysurfer speed3 15m was hardly enough to get fun in 10-11 knots, menaning just staying upwind... And ... to get fun in 8 knots, it was with a big TT door and a ... 22m2 foilkite ! Otherwise "nothing fun happends"...

Re: Light wind kite

i don't see the logic of this.. at 8 kts the 15m Soul is a good suggestion even if you are a beginner. Soul is never , ever! a beginner kite. I started kiting with loaned ozone samurai and then my first own kite Speed3 19dlx. Speed3 was beginner friendly. Why Soul would not be beginner kite? You kn...

Re: Packing foilkite without bar?

I just attach with larks head steering lines to their own front line and then I larks head front line to another. This way lines are sorted out when opening kite again and easy detach of lines and check that all is straight. If combined lines goes "underneath" or between of bridle, all lines would d...

Re: Surfr. New kitesurf jump app?

Sounds interesting but we need a little more context! What was the set up and what is your conclusion based on only 12? Tests Quickly uploaded picture from mobile as there were some talks and got busy so did not write much of an explanation what was done. So I took fishing rod of 490cm and measured...

Re: Woo Screen App - real time jump display

Probably no, woo screen developer has been active on kiteforum fenix thread and has done apps for fenix gps jump which he removes from Garmin service and GPS track.

For Woo support. Maybe Garmin api doesn't support bluetooth to listen data Woo sends.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Too many names, I usually call it dead man's turn like it was seemed to be called with kite buggy. I can do it in winter, but I have not tried with Peak nor summer.
