Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

With respect :-) Both kites are of different designs, so the differences noted should be based on that fact. The FS offers some neat features, such as little line connections, adjustable speed and bridle system. With respect to the comment starting at 5.00 regarding back line adjustment, this is cov...

Re: Do you know the Kiteboarding Etiquette?

If you are going to ask someone to launch your kite that has never launched a kite before, IE your other half, kindly explain the process in a civil manner “Face to Face” first. Shouting out instructions 20m away just doesn’t work. I had to step in on one occasion as I couldn’t stand the shouting an...

Re: Tips on making pig tails ?

I make my pigtails using the “Locked Brummel Splice" method and then run it through my sewing machine “belt and braces” approach.
Hand stitching would be fine if you don’t have access to a sewing machine.
I use Liros D Pro 01505 3mm (950kg) line with Heminway & Bartlett sewing thread.

Re: Sweet foilkite-riding

Thanks for sharing. There looks to be a technical problem when embedding videos on the forum at the moment. I remember seeing your video back in 2014 of your first session on the 12m Chrono V1. 4 years on, how does the Chrono V3 compare to the Chrono V1? Having never flown one! https://youtu.be/0fvU...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

The free repair service that FS provided I have always considered as highly commendable.

My first power kite was the Flexifoil Super 10 that cost around £150 that included lines with padded han...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Here goes nothing. For the last few days we've finally got decent winds so I've unpacked newly bought Soul 12m. I've watched videos of happy testers, read so much about this kite, how stable it is, how friendly it is, not a kite, but a miracle... And it all was HUGE BULLSHIT! With so many genuine"p...
