Re: Best cities to live for year round kiteboarding

What about San Diego? I believe they get foilable sea breezes most of the year.

Smaller lower aspect wing vs. bigger higher aspect

I'm trying to understand how various foil attributes affect the ride. Typically, smaller surface area wings go faster than bigger ones and higher aspect wings go faster than lower aspect ones. And of course there are lots of other effects as well. But what if these attributes were mixed and matched?...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I went down to 14m lines on my Souls and love it. More direct feel, able to hold down more power (needed for tacks), and as you said, easier to launch on a crowded beach.

I think you do give up some boosting height but it hasn’t bothered me much.

Re: Launching and landing on cement parking lot

Haha I should clarify that this spot is known for super light wind so risk of injury is low IMO. Not much car activity either. A tarp is an interesting idea...

Launching and landing on cement parking lot

This could be the dumbest idea of all time but how risky is it to launch and land on a cement parking lot? I ride a Flysurfer Soul and obviously I'm concerned about ripping the canopy. Any brave souls out there?

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I botched a downloop yesterday, 10m hit the water, somehow twisted and started spiraling. It wasn't pulling me aggressively but it didn't look good. A twisted ball of mess. Once it settled the leading edge was pointed down but the non-bridled side was facing the wind. I tugged on each steering line ...

Are foil kites more heat resistant than LEI?

They say to never leave a LEI in a hot car because the bladder seals will melt. I'm not an expert on foil kite internals so I was curious if the same rule applied.

Thanks!
