Re: FS Peak5 13m - control bar recommendation

The 13m is a pretty slow kite so I would go with a 55-65cm kite. High/low V doesn't matter. The longer the bar the less you'll really have to crank it to turn tighter. I can't recommend the Connect2 bar since I had mine break fairly quickly with 0 support from FS on it. A shame because I liked it. A...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic 4

Hello everyone. Recently I had a super fun light wind kite foil freerace/freeride session with the Flysurfer Sonic 4 12 m. This kite is way more stable than the Sonic 3 13 m is very fast upwind and downwind. Here's a short video. Have fun and ride safe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH3OMK4QQpw If...

Re: Flysurfer goes Aluula

Link no work. Curious to see if they trickles down the the Soul/Sonic. Wondering how well this material would do in a tomahawk situation.

Re: Sonic 3 vs 4, side by side?

What I loved about the Soul was its loop You mean the grunt in its loop? I did not spend a lot of time on Soul but that is exactly what I found hard to control and what bothered me for foiling. Of course on twintip that’s fun. Sonic 3 is similar in that sense. When I steer it up for a jump I don’t ...

Re: Sonic 3 vs 4, side by side?

I think making this kite was kinda a kneejerk reaction to the Gin Spirit. It seems like Flysurfer is focusing even more on ease of use even if it sacrifices performance. I haven't ridden the Sonic4 yet but I would imagine it's a better jumper than the Soul2 and would be the superior kite. Now I wor...

Re: Sonic 3 vs 4, side by side?

I would really call the Sonic4 more like a Soul3(or even a Speed6). The Sonic's were always about being race kites...VMG was professional full on race, while the straight Sonic was for more the weekend racers/enthusiasts. I think making this kite was kinda a kneejerk reaction to the Gin Spirit. It s...

Looks great but I would never trust my life with the build quality from Panish. What wing size and windspeed?

Re: I prefer Hybrids over Peaks, and it’s not only because of relaunch.

Should have tried the Peak5. Drifts/holds shape much better than the 4th gen. I'll take slightly more difficult drift ability over a non responsive kite.

Re: The Hybrid from Flysurfer

This is relevant if you have to land solo in high winds without a helper of a catcher or a wind shadow. Sometimes you cannot avoid a tangle in those situations. Basically, landing a Peak or Hybrid in a wind shadow - or very light wind - avoids most problems with tangling. If it lands on a windswept...

Re: The Hybrid from Flysurfer

I've never had a tangle with the Hybrid. If you keep your leader lines pulled over the leading edge/front of the kite and roll everything else inside the kite you shouldn't have any tangles. When you set up have the kite trailing edge with sand on it directly downwind, take the lines which you put ...
