Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

@kristan: this was also my suspect, two hours are not enough, in fact I underlined this point in my post. But I have to agree with Grigori that probably for the average Joe like me a lei is more simple and the overall performance in my hands is not very different from a foil. I also have to say that...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

@tomtom: actually, they told me the same thing you wrote about the Soul 8, that it is sooo powerfuI, unfortunately I did not yet have the chance to test one. I didn't have the same impression about the 12, I tested it head to head with my Core XR4 11 (that is an average power generating kite I think...

Re: Camber fatality

I think that wearing an helmet and an impact vest is mandatory. The argument they're not enough and you can die anyway is totally weak, it's like affirming that the seat belts or the airbags of a car are useless since every day there are a lot of casualties on the roads anyway. Without protections c...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

Yesterday I had the chance to test again the Soul 12, in quite light winds. I used the kite a long, much more than the previous time, so I was able to understand it better. Again, I confirm I'm not a fan of this sail. The overall pull is not stronger than any modern 12 meters lei but the Soul is slo...

Re: The Future of the Sport?

I have been windsurfing for about 37 years now and I began to kite in 2010, so in comparison I'm a rookie. About windsurfing, the theory of the excess of specialization is right. It's not only a problem of difficulty of access, it's a more "material" problem of money. E.g., in the middle age of wind...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

@Jake: I'm 75 kgs. and I really can't imagine me riding the 21 in more than 15 knots, way too much for me. Maybe a more technical and experienced kiter can handle it, not me. @Ice101: never tested the 10 but at this point I will for sure the first time I have the chance. As I told before, it's not t...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Anyway, I think that just the announce of this new technology has immediate effect on the market. In my case, I planned to replace my 15 this year, and the nr. 1 candidate was a foil kite or a strutless pump. After reading this thread about Aluula I'm going to wait, I want to see the new kites befor...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

I tested a 12 and liked it but… I frankly don't know if I really want one. I own a Speed 21 and it's really the ultimate light wind machine, no other kite will keep you riding in such ridiculous wind on a tt. But a 12 or a 10? When it's time to use a Soul 12 (speaking about TT, don't know with a foi...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I'Having flown clouds for a couple seasons now, it's painfully obvious that most kites are laden with loads of extra fabric in the way of scuff guards and "reinforcements" that are largely superfluous. I have hopes that a more robust fabric along with the quest for ultra light kites will have us be...
