Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

@prfctChaos, when is the Hyperlink v2 due out? There is zero mention of it on the Web- maybe you know something that the rest of us don't?

Re: F-One Bandit Bladder Nipples are shit

@kjorn, yes I have had a handful of instances of exactly this on my F One Furtives - not complete breaks though, just cracks around 5mm long in the position you indicated, leading to loss of pressure in the strut. Best and cheapest fix for me was just using superglue to seal the crack, replacing the...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

What's wrong with the GKA and IKA - surely they both know something about kiteboarding? Expression-type events and racing events covered between them. I wasn't kiting back then ( was windsurfing) but I distinctly recall the" chicken loops are for sissies" arguments from years ago. Utter BS. Things m...

Re: Raising the rocker

120 - was the only size they had earlier in 2018. I forgot to say that I was also very inspired by Gunnar's videos.

Re: Raising the rocker

Not quite in the home-made vein , but I can say that in my opinion Michele at Groove has absolutely nailed it with the Skate - absolutely frickin LOVE mine, one of my favourite pieces of kiting gear. The substantial nose rocker is so forgiving in heavy chop , waves and when touching down at speed yo...

Re: viron 4m in waves with hydrofoil

Good on you for showing the struggle in all its glory Regis - I was having flashbacks to the stormy onshore conditions I have tried to get out in on the foil. So damn frustrating , you hate the whitewater so much , if you try to start too soon your mast hits bottom, and you think it is never going t...

Re: Moses W873 2100cm wing discussion

From the Moses website: "the 873 full carbon front wing. The ultimate downwinder, pump wing" From my experience - Go Foil: Kai wing ~ 1200cm2 Kiteable, and good for SUP foil in formed waves ( shoulder high for me) Iwa wing ~ 1500-1600cm2 - too big to kite sensibly with, good for waist / chest high w...

Re: Fly surfer soul wind range

Am considering a 12m Soul for twin tipping and speed kiting in 18-20 knot winds. Am 80kg. Could someone with experience on the 12m tell me how it compares power-wise with an all round 12 or 14m LEI - say a Bandit or similar? My 12m high aspect speed kite needs minimal/no depower at 18-20 knots of br...
