Re: TT size to hold edge better, 133x39 vs 132x41 vs 132x39

Hi! You're about my weight. And I can recognize your dilemma :) This depends of course what you want to achieve but to my ears it sounds you got issues holding your edge when the wind kicks in right? And you don't want to size down your kite resulting in an underpowered situation ? I always got two ...

Re: Windsurfing legend lists expansive Hawaii estate for $18M

Of course, he's selling, can't launch a kite on that rocky steep shoreline :o
Or you launch it on the lawn and side jump down to the water :roll:
(At least looks like the house level is quite high, good then Antarctica melts and water rises 60 meters)

Re: Soul 10m flapping on ground after landing

Quite normal in high (maybe gusty - shifting winds ? )
just sand the trailing edge heavily and make sure trailing edge of kite is slightly against the wind,
the more gusty / shifting winds the more aggressive on the angle, you can even start the kite at 45 degrees in quite high winds.

Re: Soul V2?

"The highlights in 2021 are going to be the introduction of a wing, a third LEI product line, a split board, and the successor to our bestseller, the Soul!" Does make sense, they have to keep up with ozone and the soul 1 is 3 years old right? hopefully, lighter with the new fabric TXLight (great for...

Re: 2 kite Flysurfer Soul Quiver for TT

Hi, I would say 15 + 8 m is a big gap. You can compensate with two boards, that will significantly increase your range. I got 12 + 8m and radical 138cm + 128cm at around 67kg the 12m + 138cm tt, upwind from 8-10kn, fun starts at 11-12kn And with the smallest radical 6 board, I'm quite comfy up to 26...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

You need a Sonic 3 yes but what if you want a kite for both low/medium/stable winds and high/gusty winds? I agree on fernmanus points, especially slightly higher AR with the same superb stability of soul 1 And I could also imagine this new simplified bridle they released for the sonic race kites.

Re: 9m Soul Opinions

Don't have the 9m but the 8m. In general the souls deliver a lot of power. I can go upwind from 12 kn on a large tt (means radical 140 x 42 cm for me at 67kg, around 18-20C air temp, warmer air = less power in the wind) but I get overpower already at 26-28 kn. Comparing this to my old speed 5 9m it ...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

No comment on that one ?!!
That more then doubles the current woo record hangtime of 16.4 seconds :o
Looks unreal, some kind of upwards going winds? Fantastic flight control to handle that long-distance, 200 - 300 - 500 meters ?! :o

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

Hi! Could anybody elaborate on this wing flapping of the sonic3? In the reviews people both state that the kite is as stable as the soul but also that you have to get used to this wing flapping When does this flapping occur? while looping, after a jump? Is it similar to the speed5 behavior, ie if yo...
