Re: Wingfoiling not foiling?

Hi Peter, it goes a bit the direction windmaker said with the extra fin in front, which would help, but is not necessary in general. The lower the volume and the shorter the board is, the harder it will be, but as experienced many times it is still possible even with 150 cm x 72 l board at 63 kg. Th...

Re: Wingfoil - is it truly the best for really gusty winds? Better than Peak4?

One more question on the wingfoiling; people are marketing the wingfoil as an ultimate solution for the really gusty conditions, ie. smaller lakes surrounded wih trees etc. but I’m wondering if it’s really true and how one would compare wings to say Peak4 4/5m kites which people also tell to have t...

Re: Best hydrofoil wave kite: ConceptAir Firefly vs. Flysurfer Peak 4

... Marc on a Pulsion 369 two years ago. Difficult to see but he is letting the bar go in the video. ...Sorry ... nothing better ... Thanks anyway. Tried it myself these days in the flat, interesting for sure. But the problem in my eyes is that you just have not enough time till the kite drifts to ...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

would be great with a comparison to the speed 5 as I guess sonic 3 is closer to this kite than to the soul family. (AR is just a little higher as compared to the speed5) Is it a more difficult kite then the speed5? Yes, Sonic3 is closer to Speed5 than Soul, which stays the easiest kite of last year...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

As said, don't fix on the numbers they are just a rough orientation. In some years FS comunicate ranges more on the very save side in some more enthusiastic just for very good riders. I have heard statements I belive even the Sonic 1 been riden in up to 40 kts gusts ... on a foil! But it is just ins...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

@Regularkiter : Thanks, nice review. :thumb: @Adventure Logs: Yes as nearly always they did quite some nice small improvements, also the splicings are build another way. Also the bag is nice in principle but unfortunately even for the 9 m² to short to just fold it once. And yes a kite is not about j...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

So again. Having a bit more time so I can write a few more words, to prevent missunderstanding: When the last Sonic²s have been sold 2 month ago, I decided to just buy another Sonic² 9 m² even if my actuall is after much more than 100 sessions still perfect. I did this on my own risk not knowing if ...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

Hi Adventure Logs, no I was not told but maybe comunication error. But as I have seen so many pictures of it (teaser from others) and its flying around here in public since month, I didn't expect problems with low res pics. But if it is meant to start 24th so for all equal conditions, this makes sen...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi Peter, if you can't get one from your local dealer, you may ask Mischa from www.Kitejunkie.com , he is one of the biggest FS dealers and I was getting my 4 m² Peak4 this weekend without ordering just of the shelf. About relaunch, I think when you have slack lines crashing in waves you are 99% out...
