Re: Flysurfer Sonic 3 11m - Best Big Air Flatwater Easily

Thank you, Armin! My compliments to you and your design team on the new VMG. It is a spectacular kite for light wind fun! I suggest a 21 Sonic 3 with fiberglass battens or a free ride version of the VMG with A bit stronger bridle and added brake lines for your consideration. I think you would be su...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic 3 11m - Best Big Air Flatwater Easily

Thank you guys for your feedback.

A reduced bridle like at the VMG without break lines make relaunching in light wind difficult. So that it not the solution.
But we keep on pushing kiting and fun in the lighter breeze of wind.

Cheers, Armin

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

Armin, got a question for you. I am seriously thinking about changing my Sonic Race quiver for the Sonic 3, as I am not a competitive rider, and frankly, the durability of the race kites is kind of a bummer for me. So, how does the performance (upwind adn downwind angles), and speeds of the Sonic 3...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Hi. We deliver our kites stable and solid enough for most conditions and riders. We strongly recommend for normal riders not to change it. I is like overclocking a CPU. Sometime you can gain a bit of extra speed. But there is a bit variation between every piece. You als increase the risk of damaging...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

It is possible to use the connect bar for the SOUL if you know how to modify it, but not perfectly. The connect bar has also lower breaking strength than out other bars. If the travel range of the safety is not extended enough it could damage your kite. Please use a Force or Infinity Bar. That works...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

Yes, we designed the SONIC 3 for more performance and also to be even more user friendly for its class.
We also continuously learn how to make foil kites relaunch better and better.

Have fun, Armin

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Long mixer test is more accurate, as it includes bridle stretch. So ignore at Soul and Sonic 3 the short mixer test and only do the long one. Very important also: always measure with 5Kg! of load at each A, B, C and Z Main. Otherwise you measure B and C 3-5mm too short. Than means you extend it for ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

If you still want it super light instead of light bar pressured, you can extend the 3 Top Bridles at wingtips each side for 4 cm. For sure bar feedback is less direct and we don't recomend to do that for a normal person. BTW, if you shorten the 3 lines bar pressure increase this way too. That can be...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Hi Kristan. The SOUL should me more on the light side compared to the most kites. Otherwise maybe the Mixer C/B-Main is too long, which result to more bar pressured as breaklines at the trailing edge get too much tension. Compared it with an other SOUL Barpressure to check that. Long mixer test can ...
