Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

shoot me a message please, I'll buy it. :) I have more time than money. foilholio, so after lots of sh*tting I flew the kite today. The wind was very light, maybe 6kts and frequent lulls, but I was able to get the kite up in the air at least. Stunning how much a few cm matters on these giant 12 sqm ...

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

hey foilholio, I've just run into something ugly: I said that my pulley lines are OK because they are brand new. Now, that was incorrect. They were unused, but probably they were what came with the kite in the spare parts package, so they were unused, but old. I just measured it when I wanted to do ...

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

Who needs what probably depends on that person's needs, right? What I need is depends on me. I'm close to 50, 200 pounds, can't really swim and live in Toronto with not much wind or beaches.

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

the flying lines and the A B C Z main lines are brand new and the mixer is perfectly aligned. But you are the king with the line shrinkage idea! I just checked out the BR main extension, which goes from Z main to the back of the kite. According to the line plan it should be 242.8 cm and the actual l...

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

Thank you. So when the bar is fully pulled in and the depower straps are fully out, the line ends nicely line up, they are at the same level at the bar end. They are exactly the same length, so the kite end of the lines nicely levels too. The sparepartlines are brand new, so no shrinkage. The mixer ...

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

I bought a used flysurfer speed 3 12m, so this is a very practical question (from a very newbie) as I've just replaced the flying/main lines and struggling with the setup. How tight the backlines supposed to be when the kite is sitting at the zenith and the kite is completely depowered, the bar push...
