Re: Foiling in the dark

It’s great fun when the opportunity comes up at my local. Usually only once or twice per year. With a full moon, and some glow sticks on your board. Some awesome memories to be made.

Re: Glassy patches of water on calm sea?

Maybe oil. From wiki. “Frequently vegetable oil or fish oil was used as a cheap form of oil. Oil has a dampening effect on water which absorbs some of the energy of the waves. It also quickly forms a thin layer over a large expanse of the surface of the water through a process of deprotonation.“ I s...

Re: 14m 3-strut "lighter" wind kite recommendations?

Another vote for the 14.5m flite.
Im 65kg. Its my most used kite. 10-20knt range. Fast turning for its size. Easy to loop. Light bar pressure. Well Made.

Re: Flysurfer Bar Length for 12m Soul

I bought it with the 60cm. No regrets. It’s not a fast turning kite even with the 60cm bar.
I primarily use it for foiling in light wind. 7-14knts.

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

My experience with the 12m. On 21m lines and 60cm bar. 1. Very stable, if it overflys, it just drifts back into the wind window. Some times does start to taco but it recovers quickly. 2. Down loop gibes with a foil. Have to grab steering line to get it to loop quickly. (Which gives less power in the...

Re: New foiler- straps setups
