Re: Launching and landing on cement parking lot

Thx guys. What do you mean by “land it into your car”?

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!

Re: Best freeride bars for foil kites?

I'm looking for 50/60cm bars with 14-15m lines (preferably out of the box), relatively lightweight, long depower, strong enough for jumping, auto-untwist. I ride Souls. It seems like my needs are in-between normal bars and race bars, but curious if anyone has found good options out there. Thanks! W...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I am currently starting to have a rethink as to whether the 8m Soul is going to work for me as a medium / high wind kite - for my skinny frame the power is kind of scary at higher winds, particularly if you screw things up a bit - it has so much power in the loop or if you happen to throw it the wr...
