Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

Well Sonic3 can be awesome too, from today's foiling session.. As I ventilated with foil I lost balance and my flying mass pulled kite out of wind window by maybe 30 degrees. Nice drift by kite in 4-6m/s (8-12kn) range winds, and by pulling steering lines I was able the get kite recovered without fr...

Re: Ram air first session damage

Can't blame the manufacturer for not providing a warranty after a crash, no matter how light. Well we as a consumer can always buy from a manufacturer with 12 month free repair warranty. But this kite can be professionally repaired by paraglider or parachute repair shop, if no kite repair shop near...

Re: Surfr + burner phone = Poor Man's Woo

Woo was taped to rod right side up. Did shaking at start and end for surface g-noise and did lifting with 5s hangtime, faster acceleration at first then less. You can do also tests by your hand, kneel down, shake for couple of seconds, rise up and kneel back down and you get about 200cm jumps based ...

Re: Surfr + burner phone = Poor Man's Woo

No piq at hand and at the time surfr was not relesed.

Actually the motion is quite same, and device needs to align itself the rotating coordinates how fishing pole rotates like board above head. Accelerations you can mimic by lifting first faster.

Re: Surfr + burner phone = Poor Man's Woo

I tested woo3 on land & standing with 4.9m fishing pole + my height so optimum would be 7.1m. 10 "jumps" I did woo3 gave average 7.6m and highest 8.6m and lowest 6.3m. Not very accurate. Also there are woo3 sessions like 19m best jump and 2nd 13m and avg 7m, so very outlier type of "results" of sess...

Re: Using LEI kites on land

Superkiteday group has a lot of snowkite and landboard videos on youtube, and group is on facebook. Maybe there you might get some contacts. Also is there a dutch forum on FB? If I were to start again kiteing on hard soil I would take kite like Peak4 as a trainer, mountain and landboard usage. It is...

Re: 9m Soul Opinions

I use 10m Speed4 lotus kite as one kite travel quiver for heavy rider, and have used it a lot with hydrofoil too. Packs down small and is light, great wind range, and even on non-kiteable ultra low winds it can be used as stunt kite because it still flies in a puff. So based on my experience with Lo...

Re: Insta360 One R

fun2kite, please be the director of your videos. 360 unedited/reframed videos suck badly for us watchers. Maybe you as video author have more fun watching those on every possible angle than us, random video watchers. So please at least reframe your videos what you like us to see in them in normal 16...
