Re: Flysurfer Soul

Hey I'm looking for some advice on getting my next foiling kite. Currently I have XR6 8/11m which kinda sucks for foiling and Soul 15m which is way better. Could someone put bullet points for pro/cons of getting Souls vs Airush Ultra or single strut Contra? I'm considering Soul 9 or 10m to be added...

You're right, taut. Guilty as charged. Thought we could all relate to that perfect feeling that comes after landing a trick that's hard as heck and that has eluded us for oh so long. Perfect... :wink:

1080 Rotation - Gui Kuhry

This isn't kiteboarding, but it's close enough to appreciate the priceless reaction from 12 year-old Gui Kuhry after landing the first ever 1080 in skateboard vert competition and becoming the youngest X-Games gold medalist in history (and beating legend, Tony Hawk, still pretty impressive at 53 yea...

Re: Olympic Qualifiers?

There will be 2 new official board sports in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics: Surfing and Skateboarding. I had hoped that kiteboarding (hydrofoil course) would be an exhibition event at Tokyo, as is sometimes the case when a new event is scheduled for a future Olympics, but this apparently won't happen. We'...

Re: Soul v1 turnover

The ones on ikitesurf? So many scam ads, and so many of them Souls I notice. Very true. The number of scams on ikitesurf classifieds is out of control. Be careful!! I've had my 10m Soul for about 2 years and it's still going strong. It's a great kite for hydrofoil, and I'm not aware of any quality ...

Re: Beginner Question: How to prevent water in nose during body dragging?

My guess is that you are holding your head at the same position, even when a swell or wave comes. Try body dragging with you head at your usual position, but turn your head back (without changing your kite or body position) when a wave comes so that the water hits the back of your head instead of yo...

Re: Would you use Slingshot RPM as High Wind Kite?

What do you want to do with it?? In other words, what's your riding style? E.g., there are many better kites for airstyle, but the RPM is great for unhooked freestyle. Kiteloops and big air. Some people are suggesting North Orbit for this. As between the two, the North Orbit would be a better choic...

Re: Choosing a foil kite

I'm 80 kg and, for light wind, I ride a 990 cm2 hydrofoil wing on a 10 m Soul. I'm frequently the only one riding in very light wind (LEIs try, but can't do it). I have a 15 m Flysurfer Speed 4 that I never use for hydrofoil, because it has too much power. I think, at your size, with a surf wing, yo...

Re: The humbling and brutal pain of learning to foil

For the experienced foilers, how much hours on the water until you became "confident" to foil alone? How many more hours to ride upwind and downwind with consistency? How many more hours until you were able to tack/jibe/transition? It all depends on your background, your time flexibility, and your ...
