Re: I'm less addicted, kiting less and now i'm a better person because of it.

I had the same sensation with windsurfing many years ago. I was completely addicted, if it was wind and I was working in my office I felt sooooo bad. At the first gust I HAD TO be in the water, I suffered if I was seeing someone planing and I was not riding. It's a problem, it's not a joke. When you...

Re: 2 kite Flysurfer Soul Quiver for TT

So, 10-30 I'd say 8 and 15. But that means that you're going to ride the best wind (15-20) always with the "wrong" sail. Imo it depends on the real average wind of your home spot, first choice is for the most common wind range. In my home spot we have 90% 10-15, no sense to buy a Soul 8 for 10 days ...

Re: XR5 13.5 (Need Help)

XRs pull a lot, the problem here is that your one pulls in one direction!

Re: S-Mart Protocol (landing and launching procedure)

Good guide, especially for beginners. In my home spot we all rig downwind, no chaos. We simply rig and immediately wind the lines on the bar until we are ready to launch. We unwind in the water while the assistant is keeping the kite, we check the lines and launch. No problem on the beach since ther...

Re: XR5 13.5 (Need Help)

Hi, sounds quite strange. I own 3 Core kites and owned two more, never had problems. I actually ride a Core XR 7 dated 2010, no issues. Same for the XR2 15 (2012) that I use (and I used) really a lot, after 7 years no problem at all. Check with Core to understand if the previous owner made adjustmen...

Re: Reasons why Toby should delete Climate Change Threads

I live in Como, northern Italy, in an home I bought in 1999. In 20 years I witnessed the climate change just from the date I begin to heat my home in autumn. The first years the date averaged from first days of october to half of the month, never later. In the last 5 years I never needed heating bef...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

I'm not expecting a LEI but I'd like it more reactive. Sizes 10 and 8 are perfect IMO, 12 and 15 not so reactive. The 12 is the size I like less, it's very different from the 10, seems a completely different kite. Never tested 18 and 21. Sonic can't be compared, different kite for a different use.

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

There is one significant improvement: handling speed. In sizes 12 and up, the Soul is perfect in quite every detail but it's annoyingly slow imo.

Re: Light wind TT board length/width

So, my two cents about light wind TT. I own two of them, a Nobile Flying Carpet 160x46 and a Shinn Bronq XL 150x50. Carpet: planes as it obvious very early, but good only for mowing lawn. It's the I-am-the-only-one-planing-today-with-a-TT board, not so funny to be frank. Carpet + FS Speed 5 21 upwin...
