Re: How land Sonic FR smooth, slow and with precision?

My technique is pretty simple. Make sure you are at full power on the trimmer - ie full open. If I am flying my 15 thru 21m then I sit down and gently increase tension on the rear lines until the kite starts to reverse down. You need to modulate the pressure to keep the kite moving but not too fast....

Re: How land Sonic FR smooth, slow and with precision?

I agree with KristianE86 - you need to reverse it down more slowly. This way it generates less power. A landing strap seems to be popular although I've not used one myself. I always stall mine from 12 o clock, but if you have enough room you can stall them from 3 or 9 o'clock as well. In stronger wi...

Re: How to slow down on hydrofoil?

Great question ! I was riding the Levitaz Aspect recently and had a funny moment. Usually, on my LF Fish putting the kite at 12 results in a nice a gradual slowdown. I had the GPS on at this occasion on the Levitaz and at about 25 knots downwind I lost my nerve and did the same - put the 8m foil I w...

Re: Foilboards in waves

I'm really into this concept. I started on the LF Foil Fish and am now riding the MAgma Barracuda which foils really early and is super stable. I've started to catch some unbroken swells at my local beach - nothing like the Laird Hamilton videos - but am having lots of fun. I'm flying foil kites gen...

Re: Introducing: Levitaz Kitefoils

I spent 3 days riding the Aspect 3.0 with Flysurfer in Montenegro last week. I was pretty blown away by the Levitaz - super easy to ride and so little drag. I was riding riding toeside around 18-20 knots with complete ease.... It really surprised me. I also watched complete foiling noobs manage to g...

Re: KFA Mk1 Reviews for learning?

Mast stiffness has been an issue - the mark 1's are too flexible. Other than that the wing profile is fine.

Re: Flysurfer Realeases the 2015 Peak2

Any updates to that last comment - has anyone tried the peak with a foil board yet ? I've just bought a 9m Peak 1 and am curious to play with it on a surfboard ..... I saw previous comments about needing to be powered up all the time, for short sessions it might be ok. I'm thinking the depower might...

Re: flysurfer speed 3 for foiling

My experience has been very positive - so much so that I decided to become a Flysurfer dealer. The Flysurfer Speed kites, whilst lower AR than the Sonic and R1 race machines, are much higher AR than any LEI currently available as as such, are well suited to the high angles and speeds we can reach on...

Re: Tandem - amazing board from Nobile

That would be kind of cool for parents with young kids, although I already have a large Flydoor that might work.

How does the passenger not get in the way of the harness and chicken loop ??
