Re: Foiling gear, upgrading.

Moses carbon everything, and a 37inch pocket board will fit into your goal for light weight travel. I packed 4 Clouds, bar & lines, harness, wetsuit, mast/fuse/stab/wing, board all into my NSI Golf bag and stayed under 48 pounds.

Re: Clouds are fragile

It always happens in a fraction of a second. Just a whole lot of power on your attracted bar. If your kite is pumped up hard it will never be possible to get the kite back in its original form on the water. Yesterday it happens me with the D2E 3.7. I almost get lost on sea with 5 degrees Celcius ai...

Re: Drop Your $&@#ing Kite!

Here in Los Barriles MX I've sensed a couple dirty looks from my actions. I'm a seasoned foiler and I promise I'm more than 2 line-lengths clear, kite low or high depending on shared paths.... but get scowled at?

Flysurfer Soul 8m 2019

Like new. This foil kite is super fun in winds from about 12mph to 25mph. It's a great experience. The Soul is a new "hybrid" type foil kite that will float and water relaunch even after 20 minutes of swimming. Only selling because I "need" a 10. Kite & Bag only. $1050 plus shipping. https://i.imgur...

Re: When you swim in with your foil kite in the winter and it's soaked.

I strung a clothes line in our empty attic. Then set up a fan to pass air gently over it. 24 hours and it's done. Last summer I tried the leaf-blower & back yard method but after many hours I could still see droplets and moisture inside the cells. Too wet to roll up and mold.

I'm in the same boat. Purchased an 8m Soul this past summer and now I wish it was the 10.

Re: Moses 2019

re 590: I have read somewhere another needed to make modifications for the 483 on kite fuse, although I did not. imo, 330 felt too skatey, 483 was more stable & slightly better low end. currently happy on 590 w/ 420 That was me. 2016 Ghost Whisperer fuse with previously a 330 stabilizer.

Re: Self-Land a Soul

My question is not necessarily how to land the Soul, but it's a question of whether anyone here walks up to the Soul hand-over-hand holding the back (steering) lines in tension. Our beach is wide open and there's really nothing available as an anchor to hook to.
