Re: Flysurfer Soul

I had a 12m Soul as a light wind kite, and briefly tried a Soul only quiver. I ended up back with LEIs for various reasons: 1) Although the Soul feels similar to an LEI in handling, there’s no way around the fact that it’s SLOOOW to turn in larger sizes. 2) It loops slowly and with lots of power 3) ...

Re: Jesse Richman's Terrifying Snowkiting Incident - Pushing the Limits

This is not really anything new, Ruben and many others have taken LEIs over cliffs / steep edges and basically paraglided down. And don’t tell me this was a massive surprise / scary emergency - he would have known the wind conditions and prepared specifically to do that. Not that it doesn’t take lot...

Re: now foil kiters are saying their kites drift better

Not much point telling us about a 3m / 4m wave kite - this is only useful for hydrofoiling...so it’s not a wave kite....

Re: now foil kiters are saying their kites drift better

Drift is all very well but for a good wave kite you also want (or at last I do) a fast responding kite with good positive bar feedback. When a foil kite comes out with all of that then maybe LEIs will have competition in waves. Not sure it’s gonna happen though.

Re: Megaloop Challenge 2019

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 difficult to handle at the top end

Good luck finding any 12-13m foil kite or 14-15m+ LEI that isn't a handful above 20 knots. It's just physics innit!

Re: Speed Record for hydrofoiling ?

Seems strange that since you can go faster in lower winds on a foil board and obviously there’s massively lower drag - the logical conclusion would be that you should be able to reach a greater maximum speed.

Re: What to replace enduros with?

Yep they’re lovely in waves, had my best sessions ever in strong wind and waves, one thing I have noticed compared to the Enduro V2s I had before them is really precise bar feeling, bar pressure might be a bit heavier than some might like but it works great when you’re doing rotations, downloops and...
