Re: more speed on a soul

Try shortening your lines, dont see a reason you cant go faster on skis, my top speed on the 15 is at 38 knots on hydrofoil, and my top speed on my 8 is at 42 knots on a speed board (water) Im on 18m lines, you think shorter? im curious if im trying to go too far up wind and stalling the kite back....

Re: more speed on a soul

How do you find the pull of kite vs the angle riding? With this I mean that high pull kite makes you go very steep downwind angle which makes apparent wind less due to true wind riding angle and you lose kite pull, but you cannot hold edge on higher course because kite pulls too much on high speeds...

more speed on a soul

Hey All, For all the racers out there, UT has had a dry season and im running out of ways to entertain my self on the frozen lakes (not a lot of options to glide or do freestyle). So I decided to start figuring out the speed thing. Im flying a 15m soul and a 8m soul, can also get on my 12 ts. On my ...

Re: Glide Landing Question

Fun personal observations from first real day of gliding for the year. For reference I fly backwards, strapped with a snowboard in a climbing harness with a waist harness on a 15m foil with 18m lines. Speed is my friend: When taking off slowly, I would accidentally engage a very fast rotation, super...

Re: Soul with an SS bar

My initial concern was with sheeting out and trim, im tuning the bar not to have any trim but a big throw to sheet out. For trimless bar setup I think Soul's full sheeting range with bar and depower strap is somewhere in 70cm/27inch area. But measure to be exact I mean if steering lines are loose -...

Re: Soul with an SS bar

Rome, Modern kite bar and line sets are engineered for high loads such as kite loops. The problem with a 4 line bar is lose one line and you don’t glide to the earth, you plummet like a stone. So, first rule of thumb with gliding is to not glide higher than you are willing to fall. Gliding high and...

Re: tack on the snow

Perhaps, it is obvious to you what you are doing, but it would really help if you had someone else film you. I can’t tell what you are doing from the video. Thank you. Kenny ask Jake to demonstrate a tack, he does these so smoothly and easily it's deceptive. You would have seen him do this countles...

Re: Neilpryde Mission FZ or BZ and other misc.

I like Glacier Glove Kenai Waterproof Gloves and Oniell heat booties, 4-5mm should do the trick. They get me by with a 4/3 psycho tech hooded suite in water in high 40s and air in high forties. I made the mistake of getting 7m booties and I cant feel my foil board under me, the surfboard also feels ...

Re: Downloops on surfboard

Same problem for me: but I know why it happens to me: 1. to much edge pressure when starting the loop -> when pressure is released - it „bungees“ you towards the kite -> slack lines , no steering 2. beeing afraid and starting to go towards the kite BEFORE the initial steering. -> Slow kite turning ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

How about the possibility to fly a Soul on a Ozone 4 line bar? Is it real? Should fly perfectly with any four line Ozone bar. I fly it with a 2017 ss sentinal bar and 18m lines, the bar intended for the ss foil which bombed Misérables … could use more throw but works well in no to 30kn wind
