Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

More complicated does not necessarily make it a better kite and can actually make it worse. Look at some of the unnecessary things Flysurfer has done in the past like jet flaps and blowout valves. A paraglider does not directly translate into a kite either. A kite has a lot more to design for. It h...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

What's wrong with the Capa however is the price tag. This kite offers less than comparable products like the Soul, Hyperlink and Nova (heavier, no PMAs, no bridle config, more difficult to launch by just pulling one line, dull design) but costs more. For sure that kind of kite is expensive under Du...

Re: Connections O-Rings

They look good and knowing how strong stainless steel is they should be strong enough. Biggest size 10,5mm is the correct one I think but it would be best to check what size FS has used.

Splicing a ring in the end of line is quite neat way to make a universal knot/loop connection.

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

I found out Chrono V3 has smaller cell count than V2, so there will be more wrinkles and bulging now. Reason for this kind of changes is of course economical and also it makes V3 separate more from Ozone race kites. However cell count of 38 to 44 is still high(ish) so Chrono V3 is for sure a smooth ...

Re: 80 knots on a foilkite

If you want to go fast then use a small kite in very high wind. I don't know much about sailing on water but I imagine that using a hydrofoil design and two small kites in very high wind might work. One small kite won't be enough and a larger kite has too much drag. This is incorrect, two small kit...

Re: Same Line length (Splicing)

I do the same as Faxie except I use a Sharpie to mark up. I have been marking dyneema with a Sharpie for a good number of years without problem and so I am guessing there is no significant adverse chemistry going on between the dyneema and marker fluid. However I would be interested to know if any ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

make it happen flysurfer! i fly a soul in 6m and 10m.. ...and peak4 in 3m and 5m. souls and peak4s flying completely differently... personally, i'd be interested in a couple sizes under 6m (like...2.5m and 5m) those imo, would be the perfect foilsurfing kites. (sufficient drift...but enough grunt t...

Re: Need to change the speed system of F-one Diablo 1

Why speed system have to be changed? IDK F-one mixer but you should be able to replace worn out parts like pulley lines or pulleys. In principle speed systems are interchangeable (if normal 1:2:4), so if new f-one mixer is not available or old one is difficult to fix you should be able to use FS mix...

Re: Can I still use an old Concept Air 6m Wave?

If kite is in very good condition it is possible/perhaps worth it to design new modern bridle and speed system in it. Wave is a very simple low AR low cell count foil kite, it is the easiest kite type there is. So probability to success is good - within the limits that kind of kite has. It will neve...
