Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

To have to replace pulley bridle lines that are out of tolerance in my view is wasteful. Spoken like someone who has never maxed out their mixer trying to tune around shortened pulley lines... :roll: I can't imagine having the mindset of not replacing consumable parts of a foil kite mixer when they...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

With the large uptake of foil kites I predict there will be some demand for people who know how to tune the bridle system. And probably some bargains to be had when those who can’t be bothered learning sell their problem kites. Flysurfer say their silicone cloth is good for over 1000 hours, that’s ...

Re: Highest performance (race) current model kite that doesn't require special handling?

I have also owned Hyperlinks and Flown Sould but I find them to be nowhere near as good as race kites, Having been flying Chrono V1’s since 2014 then comparing them to a Hyperlink for example the difference in performance becomes immediately apparent. It’s not a criticism but highlights the differe...

Re: launch/landing foil kites on rough beaches ?

That’s a challenging place to launch/land your kite, but it looks like you manage it well :thumb:

Re: Lost Kiteboard - Camber Sands UK

From personal experience boards will usually end up further down the beach (East) at Camber. I lost my board one day and found it about 40 minutes later along way down the beach. A friend also lost his board and despite an extensive search we couldn’t find it. Returned to the car park to find his bo...

Re: soul pulling to one side

Hi Flag53, thanks for the reply. Looking at the following link: http://shop.flysurfer.com/2x-pulleys.html The product description reads “A shared development by Flysurfer and Sprenger” “High quality and long-living” Ronstan produce a similar looking pulley as detailed in the link. https://www.ronsta...

Re: soul pulling to one side

I had the Pulleys fail on my 12m Soul but only after 18months of use. Has anyone thought about fitting an alternative to the standard pulley . I like the look of the 18mm Harken Carbo air block and even thought about the Ronstan Shock Block but I couldn’t find any reviews on the Ronstan For an item...

Re: What makes a good strapless kite

When I moved from a TT to a Zap ACE Skimboard (54” x 20”) about 3 years ago, "I’ve carried on using the same kites" The board is fully decked out which does away with having to wax it. Despite it having a “nose & tail” it rides perfectly well both ways like a TT, handy if you haven’t learnt the tech...

Re: Bridle Shrinkage

I saw something (IIRC a reference to a kite designer) on this forum that bridle shrinkage is due to the lines being bent, gradually loosening up the braid. Does anyone have a reference to the original source? Seems that shrinkage comes up often on this forum. Hello,take a look at this video as line...
