Re: Trimming kite position deeper?

Hi! Learning a lot about kite design now. Fun. Thanks! On the LFK P1 the attachments on the wing tips are made with two short fixed lines that meet at the pigtail. There are no moving parts or adjustment/tuning points. However, the two short lines are of different length and production and QC missed...

Re: Trimming kite position deeper?

Thanks for all advice! Grateful. The kites are totally new LFK P1. My comparison is with LFK Solo, Best Roca and Ozone Zephyr. I live in a light wind area. All my other kites fly in a more similar manner, they pull more through the turns which I like. But the P1 shoot up along the edge of the window...

Trimming kite position deeper?

Can I trim the kite's position in the window? Fixing a bit on the bridles and such? Suppose not, since they are designed for a specific position, right. I want one of my kites to sit a bit deeper, this one exaggerates "flying to the edge of the window". In the turns it moves along the edge from one ...

Re: Kitesurfing on Lanzarote

I must say that don't particularly appreciate any of the Canary islands for kite surfing. Too choppy and "wavey" for my taste. Flag beach on Fuerteventura also rocky. Sotavento has a nice and long kite beach anyway and once in a while the lagoon fills up with 30 cm or so of sea water. You'll be ridi...

Re: The best kite for Teaching?

I remember my first sessions as a beginner. 20+ knots and a Cab Radar. It whipped through the wind window so fast you could not understand any of the mechanics that was going on. I did not progress until I had a day on a slow friendly Ozone Zephyr. It flew gently across giving time to figure out wha...

Re: FS Soul 18 vs 21 sqm?

Thanks, yes i remember now - the challenge of chosing big board or big kite. I think that the thread here on kiteforum (or was it Seabreeze?) actually came down in favour of large board rather than ultralarge kite. As HALF suggest. Will have to contemplate this. What also factors in sometimes is tra...

FS Soul 18 vs 21 sqm?

I'm concidering a FS Soul for those light wind days but still on a TT. I'm 210 lbs/95 kg. Any opinions about 18 vs 21 sqm? Is 21 going over board and has negative sides like managing the beast launching and landing and not tangling the bridles, so is 18 enough? Or should I just go all in on 21 to be...

Re: New Wetsuit Skunk stink....

You weirdos... :lol: My two cents on this: I have a mixed bag of suits, boots and crash vests. I've seen no clear pattern, sometimes it just stinks. My homegrown findings: if it really stinks you need to do the vinegar rinse earlier mentioned, but for daily maintenance I've found Rip Curl's Pis Off ...

Opinions about LFK P1 for weekend rider?

Do you have any hands-on experience about Liquid Force P1? I suppose I'm a progressing weekend rider in a spot with light gusty winds 8-18 kts and choppy water. No waves. Mowing the lawn and the occasional little trick.
