Re: Shorter board is less playful...!

I went from a Groove Skate (carbon) 120 cm to a Groove Wave (carbon) 123 cm. Mastpostion exactly the same. Both boards have a lot of scoop. But the Wave is much more dynamic then the Skate. With the skate, I considered buying a smaller board. Now that I have the Wave, this is a thing of the past I ...

Re: launch/landing foil kites on rough beaches ?

I'm interested to know (as a non-foil owner), how do Flysurfer's hold up to being launched and landed on pebbly, muddy and shingle beaches with broken shell fragements etc ? In all the Flysurfer promo videos they are always on a big clean sandy beach, many beaches are not like these. Kiting in the ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Deep water pack down: any tips? Finally got some time on my 8m in marginal conditions. I need to do deep water packdowns and am having a hard time getting everything packed up before it’s water logged. My lazy closed cell approach doesn’t work since it doesn’t seem I have nearly the same amount of ...

Re: 9m Soul Opinions

HL is much better keeping control while riding downwind. With enough sheeting you can get a stalled out pinwheel down-loop. Boost is OK but not as exciting as Soul. I spiral(your stalled out pinwheel) my Soul 6m ALL the time without issue. The reason why it’s more difficult is FS tuned the Soul for...

Re: 9m Soul Opinions

You should consider the ozone hyperlink v2 9m. It's less " racy " than soul. Why would you want something with inferior relaunch capabilities, less airtight build, and sucks at dumping internal water? If the Soul is making too much power for you or is too “racy” that’s what the depower is for :roll...

Re: flysurfer soul 15m ?

I think people are finding other options One or two people doesn’t make a trend. More value durability, simplicity, and performance over price. Never understood people’s need to justify cheapness :roll: As to the Soul vs Sonic question. Had the Soul 15m. It is a good light wind kite but really the ...

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

Knowing flysurfer they most likely decided that the gain wasn’t worth the extra cost. Also this looks like a huge step forward but the cost is actually less than the previous generation. That’s amazing in my opinion. Bille, these are replaceable so maybe you can make an aftermarket rod to replace th...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4 flag out?

I’m sure you could flag out using a rear line but with the leading edge the way it is I assume there would be more flapping. You can also just wind in the front lines, hand over hand and grab the bridle. Armin showed this and I’ve done it a couple times. It works pretty well and cool party trick. Al...

Lastly you say 2 row kites are “hardly” done, who else has done a two row kite?
You didn't specify Kite, or PG ; so here is the Ozone Zeolite competition glider :
