Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

They won't rip you off the water like a C hybrid kite and since the kite it designed to drift it wont shoot forward so you will make a not too bad jump but go downwind more than on some other kites. The hangtime is decent! Thanks Windigo1. Since you mentioned "shooting forward" and "going downwind"...

Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

Just to clarify, u are concerned of jumping with Ultra and a water relaunch? Concern with jumping - for near future when I'm ready to try jumping, hopefully this summer :( Concern with water relaunch - current. However, this isn't a big concern in general because I'm good at it . Only that one time...

Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

Negatives are: relatively bad relaunch, jumping, kitebag Thanks RadDrDuke. The things you say make sense. The simplicity and ease-of-use reasons are why I wanted the Ultra, so that I progress better with general kiting and freeriding, maybe until the non-jumping part of learning. But from what you'...

Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

Thanks everyone. I think the verdict is mostly unanimous here. The Ultra will work for what I'm looking for, but certainly not the best option. Given that I put so much thought into what gear to get, and I want whatever helps me the most with progression, I think I'll go for 3-strut all-round freeri...

Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

Hi Kiters, Following are my details before I ask my question. Weight : 190 lbs Kiting Skill : Beginner-intermediate. Can ride both directions and also ride upwind, but not with much confidence, and not perfectly. Only TT freeriding for now, and near future. Kiting Location : In-Land lakes of Minneso...

Re: My first sessions with the Flysurfer Soul 12, a short video

Thanks everyone. 2 more questions: 1. 15mt vs 18 mt?. I weigh 190+ lbs. In-land Lakes here do not have consistent winds. So lightwind suddenly picks up to higher gusts. I usually hear foils are more powerful than their same-size LEI equivalents. I noticed that myself, while snowkiting this winter. A...

Re: My first sessions with the Flysurfer Soul 12, a short video

Hi Carlo,

Is the Flysurfer Soul easy enough to handle for beginner-intermediate ?

Also, I was wondering if the water relaunch that flysurfer is claiming is true. I still can't believe water cannot seep into the kite openings making it un-relaunchable.

Thanks.

Re: Beginner Board Advice: Door vs Regular Large

If the main communication from your instructors was ‘your board skills are bad’; It was your instructors that were bad. That is not really helpful information. So maybe it wasn’t/isn’t your skills that are lacking. Just go spend more time on whatever bigger gear you have around and it will come tog...

Re: Beginner Board Advice: Door vs Regular Large

From what I understand, the conflict here in this thread is that : 1. Pro-Big-Board guys: You need bigger wider board for the surface area to get going. But.... 2. Anti-Big board guys: On the Contrary, the wider boards are tougher to edge. Both statements are true. That is the very definition of "t...
