Gin Spirit flies with all common bars? just curious before buying a 15m.
Yes, the spirit I tried flew perfectly on a standard same line length bar from kote attitude.

Little crease

There is a little crease on an Crazyfly Flite.

I jump a lot.

Will this board soon break in half and let my foil disappear into the deep blue?

Can I still sell to online people or will I then go to hell?

Re: Best Knot in 5mm Dyneema

Just splice the ends into eachother so the whole thing is one loop. Maybe you can use a thinner diameter of dyneema to comply to the recommended burry length.

The middle knot to hold the QR looks good to me!

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

Had a try on the 10m and the 8m spirit in 12 to 22 knots on twintip. What stuck out most is how stable the kite is, not a single ear tuck in 3 hours. Even drifting it backwards it hardly wobbled. The 10 was a bit big for the amount of wind we had, so I had it depowered a lot but even then the kite h...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 5 is here

Does somebody have the Connect 2 bar? The Flysurfer site is not that clear on what changed/improved form the previous. It looks like it's got a blue 5th line of slightly different material. But if that's all I might buy an older bar at a discount. Just in case: When i google flysurfer connect bar i...

Re: Sonic 4

Awesome fingers crossed. The sonic 3 is an amazing kite. Hard to see how they improve it. It gives you the feel of a race kite but without all the hassles. The water relaunch in terms of ease and duration of the kite on the water rivals the Souls. Name any other high aspect foil kite that even come...

Re: Sonic 4

Small sonics are probably ultra jerky in gusts.

There was supposed to be a singleskin hybrid for foiling coming. My guess is they bring that one out next. That should be a great combination with your monofoils in high wind, triton!

Re: Hydrofoil design - too sharp edges

Zeeko spitfire xlw is nice and safe because it does not have a stabiliser and does not jump out the water when you fall. Do you have one? I'm always interested on how it feels v the newer models, it's just such a special design with a promise of a surf like feeling... Care to comment on it? Exactly...

4mm dyneema and a thick climbing ring works great and has low friction:
