Re: 17m kite Overkill

Large LEI kites >15m are often on sale brand new or second hand for a good reason. Often beginner riders wants as much time on water as possibile and they get LW kite just to be able to moan lawn, later they find out little fun in just riding left-right and small wind range in these kites is a pain ...

Re: flysurfer soul 15m ?

Nice photo! How would the 15m be on a 50cm Naish bar with 24m lines ? Bit slow in guessing. 15m Foil kite will feel slow comparing to any LEI kite no matter what bar length you have. Its really worth to get Flysurfer bar for Souls as it take minutes to extend or shorten lines and it changes wind ra...

Re: Why should we put our hands in the center of the bar? Why different bar sizes?

Yeah he is mixing terms by stating "putting hands in the middle will gives you more precision and make turning easier" it is actually opposite. Small movement of bar with hand in the middle will require much more force and will result in less precision because steering lines will move much more than...

Re: Opinions on next Cabrinha kite

FX would be considerably different for a beginner in going upwind and once he starts first jumps. It's a big ignorant to throw these kites in the same bag. For intermediate rider probably difference wouldn't matter as much as they can get more from any kite. Moto and Swichblade, yes these two wouldn...

wish they had more pro riders on TT, it would be interesting to see how much they can squeeze from foil kites

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I would see a gain in getting 9m soul in wider wind range that I can get from LEI kite. I'm guessing that 9m Soul would have range on TT like 8-11m LEI kite. My local spots have narrow or almost no beach at all adding another level on complexity in starting kite but as you mention my 9m would be for...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I did and went back to LEIs. 12m Soul amazing in low wind but very slow. Floaty jumps and stability great but very different from LEIs. 9m amazing low end for the size but for me got pretty sketchy in higher winds, I found the redirect after bigger jumps difficult to control and much more inconsist...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Hey, Did someone recently made transition from LEI to Soul 8/9m on TT and get some insight how does the ride compares? Getting my Switchblades 10 & 14m sold this year and would consider 9m soul for TT but can't demo anywhere I live this kite. I wonder how is lunching of small 9m soul is like in 20-3...
