Re: Xr5 15m lightwind? Or

I'm still baffled by Core's design theory to have 5 struts on their XR LW series kites...... The number if struts is dictated by the shape of the kite.. If you want high aspect flat kite you would need a lot of support.. Obviously it won't be the lightest kite on the market but it may appeal to peo...

Re: sea anchor!

imo, the ability to perform a water self rescue is a required skill for using high performace(or not) foil kites... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJSfikrEykw True, but most of the time it's hard to make the decision.. Maybe you want to wait 5-10 minutes to see if the wind picks up but meanwhile s...

Re: sea anchor!

I had a short (15min swim) with 15m soul last week and it took no water at all. I think whether it drinks or not depends on how choppy the conditions are and how the valves are positioned on the water. If there is a few knots of wind sometimes it makes sense to keep the center lines tensioned if it'...

Re: XR6 Release

Looks like nothing much changed since xr4-5... not necessarily a bad thing - good kites since xr2, really.. Shortening of the bridle.. When is it really going to stop? :-D why could not they figure it out since XR2? :-D So they want to market as a starship... why not take some cues from Ozone and ac...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 difficult to handle at the top end

Anything I can do to improve the depower, and the top end? Should I mess with the PMAs ? Is the top end of this kite overrated, or something wrong with my setup? THis is counter-intuitive, but try shortening steering lines to the point when you start stalling the kite with bar all way in. Seems lik...

Re: Line Check FS Soul?

After 12 years of LEI kite I just assumed we always check all lines for equal length. No reason to change that. If you have to make some adjustments for front line/back line lengths do it in the kite, not in the flying lines. I thought about it since I use the bar that does not give you an option t...
