Re: Flysurfer Soul

Kristen if you want to sell your 12 pm me a price! Sorry, but I can't sell my kite abroad. I'd rather sell it to my local kiters. I have less than a month left before my big kiting vacation and I need to get money fast in order to buy a new kite. And even if I won't sell my Soul, I'd take it on vac...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I too selling my Soul to swap back to LEI. The hype is gone, so people realized that it's not the miracle kite. Maybe I'd have more luck if I picked Hyperlink in the first place.

Re: What's the difference between a beginner, intermediate, and advanced twin tip?

For all those who say "It's the price, not the shape". Here are two boards, Crazyfly Allround and Crazyfly Raptor. Allround is for beginners and Raptor is intermediate. Let's start with the Raptor. As you can see the rocker is constant, nothing special, most of the boards have it that way. https://z...

Re: What's the difference between a beginner, intermediate, and advanced twin tip?

Rocker. Beginner board are much more "flatter", while intermediate boards are a bit more curved. With lack of power from the kite, board with bigger rocker would simply brake and push water forward. Flatter beginner board would negate lack of power and let the rider gain speed much easier.

Re: sea anchor!

Not sure if that was sarcasm...

I'd rinse it, then dry it, no mildew would happen. Salt crystals might harm the kite in the long run.

Re: Soul - landing with help

Sometimes you ask "do you know how to land foil kite?" they say "yeah, I know!"... and grab the leading edge, pull it all the way down just to grab the opposing wingtip. Bloody hell dude, that was excessive! Some actually stop and listen to instructions, they might not lie down the kite the right wa...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I feel foils are far superior for launch and landing than LEI. They definitely require more skill to fly and in general. I guess you need to weigh the benefits. I can actually enjoy the difficultly more. More challenge makes it less boring. In some regard I am tempted to surf with a race kite lol. ...

Re: sea anchor!

First of all... by any means DO NOT pull the kite when it's leading edge down. That's how it fills with water. If you can't relaunch it then you roll it in such situation. Or at least use QR, so it would straighten and float while you swim. It still might not save you from water getting inside, but ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

There are no stability issues anymore, kite flies like a charm, it appears that it's rather turbulent winds and breaking down in the lines have caused previous issues. For what I have now is no deal of Soul only, but I guess it's more like standard behavior of most of foil kites. Soul probably has i...
