Re: Flysurfer Soul

If your kite steers when fully depowered (c and z disengaged) it will very likely be not a problem on Z. Most likely your steering lines of the bar are out of tune then or something similar on A and B or in the mixer when you compare left to right. If your kite goes straight depowered but steers un...

Re: wind proof top for wetsuit recommendations

I had a gul one, https://www.wetsuitcentre.co.uk/gul-flexor-neoprene-hoody-2016.html that was that was amazing with a hook, it is incredible the difference these things make, especialy when foiling as you move so much less, I liked the gul one as it drained water really well. Since getting a sliding...

Re: F-one Mirage 800 and 1000 Carbon 2020/2021 (V3)

I have the mirage 1000 & 650. The 1000 is fantastic, especially with a single skin foil kite in smaller sizes, I also found it great for learning to gybe etc, however like any big wing it is doesn't glide as well as a smaller wing and can be a handlful in large chop, also not great with a bigger kit...

does a foil carve or pivot?

When I turn a foil despite my best efforts I never really get a feeling that it is carving, not in the same way you feel a carve when gybing a windsurfer or paddle surfing. I don't get that locked in feeling that you are pushing hard against something that is pushing back and creating that wonderful...

Re: Kite foiling is dying sooo fast

winging takes more wind. i only see wingers out when i'm on an 8m kite or less. in that sense, it is like windsurfing. and yes, i had the gear and tried it. not for me (had bad shoulders already). i see the point of it in limited/difficult launch spots, but around here on the open ocean, kite foili...

Re: What foil.

I can really rate the fone kit. I started on the Ic6 and then got the mirage 1000 to learn to gybe which worked a treat, then got the mirage 650 to get back to cruising with less drag and more glide which was a great wing. I then moved down again to the escape 510 for again less drag and just pure g...

Re: soul pulling to one side

thanks tsuneo that's interesting, I did the mixer test and it was fine, however if I understand you right the mixer test can be fine on each side but the line(s) might be longer overall on the left than the right?

Any ideas for how to test this?

thanks
