Re: Fastest turning foil kites

I’m 80 kgs and the Soul is fairly new. I’m not keen on a kite look as it just drags you downwind, I do loop when using my smaller kites on a surf foil. Tried Pansh kites, like stepping back to Speed 2 days, a very basic bridle design and performance. I’m a bit of a Flysurfer fan, still can’t underst...

Fastest turning foil kites

Hi All, I’m progressing into tacks on a medium size wing, about 600 sqcm and finding my 12 mtr Soul not really up to the task in the 7-10 knot range. Just doesn’t have the power out of the tack and I’m getting touchdowns. So I guess I need a bigger kite. A 15 Soul is going to be big and slow, a Soni...

Re: I sold my flysurfer soul in favour of.

I went the other way, had a 12mtr Pansh Aurora 2 ultralight, bought the 12 mtr Soul. The Pansh was good, worked well for my offshore cruising on my faster wing, but it filled with water too quick if you dropped it. The intake socks aren’t long enough and water gets in quicker making the kite unlaunc...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

Got a mate who has a 633 on the 82cm mast. He has a problem of the mast to fuselage screws loosening during use, one in particular is barely finger tight at the end of the session. I’ve had a close look at the threads and screws and can’t see any defects. The mast doesn’t bottom out in the base of t...

Re: Relaunching Edge in really low wind

Owned the 11 Edge for foiling but sold it and replaced it with a 12 Soul due to the iffy relaunch in lower wind strength. Yes, it got me going in the light stuff kind of but it is bloody heavy and in the wind needed to keep it flying you were almost overpowered when up on the foil. Had a couple of s...

Re: Foil kites on wet beaches

Same with me, I have a 12 Soul and a 12 single strut for possible rain. Wet foil kites are the worst unless you have a big area to dry them.

Re: Learning 180 after mastering 360

My foot pump into the 180 is much larger than when doing a 360. This tends to throw you forward and centred over the board for the exit. I also look way over my shoulder during a 360, continuing the turn, but just back the other way during a 180.

Re: Landing Sand anchor

I have one of these, it will not pull out. I don’t use it much anymore as I’m foiling, but I once had a LIE self launch itself as I had forgotten to pull the depower strap, it went vertical then over to the other side, no movement of the anchor. You use a handle to install it, then remove the handle...
