Re: Saunton Beach death

I’m not sure many right minded people will recommend keeping your kite high in overpowered gusty conditions...!

Re: Saunton Beach death

Does anybody know the circumstances of the accident? It sounds like it may not have been directly related to the conditions in the day, certainly from other descriptions these were conditions that most of us would be going out in given the opportunity.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Soul 12m and 8m for me is an excellent combination with enough crossover, this is for twin tip riding. The one feature it has, which you have to get used to, is a lot of power in the loop, so for instance if you're doing a downloop transition you need to really get it looping quickly and with the ba...

Re: Kiter killed in New Zealand

But surely the opposite to avoid it in the first place? We all know you can control your power a lot more on the water than on the land, so perhaps a lesson to keep your kite low and in control until you’re on the water, and leave the boosting until then.

Re: Ram air caught in surf disaster

Based on the same logic as PMU I hearby denounce all inflatable kites on the basis of them being terrible for paragliding.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Soul may not be the perfect kite but it does literally none of the things you have just described. Did you close the intake valves?

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I use an Ozone race bar - same length and strength lines as FS but much prefer the bar, QR etc. Only thing is the double depower pulley so longer trim to pull, I actually like this as it means I can depower very accurately. I use a size larger than Flysurfer recommend, ie a 55cm bar for the 12m Soul.
