Re: 9m v 10m Soul

What sort of wind speeds do you guys feel comfortable in launching your 9m & 10m Souls?
Do you have an upper limit before you decide that it’s too windy to launch safely?

Re: Ram air first session damage

Agree with that analysis.(@Peter_Frank) This is an unfortunate incident that wouldn’t be covered under this particular manufacturer’s warranty. I have witnessed a tube kite explode on impact when flown into the water where the kitesurfer in my opinion had ample time to steer the kite out of the dive...

Re: Ozone R1V1 characteristics and trimming

I purchased a used R1 V1 (15m) sometime ago and found the speed system was out of alignment due to pulley line shrinkage. They were worn as well so I made and replaced PB1 & PB2 pulley lines on both sides, adjusted KR1 (Z) Checked the main bridles for wear and all was ok. The Ronstan pulleys were in...

Re: Launching in strong winds

Threads get started asking for advice with respect to a kites wind range for a “one kite option” for example so it’s good to see threads like this one. I’ve yet to get my first session in this year due to the COVID-19 lockdown and now the beaches are open (with care) the winds have been far too stro...

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

Flysurfer no doubt chose fibreglass as it met with their design remit.
I cannot imagine as to what conditions the fibreglass rods would actually break. (On the basis the kite is flown and maintained as it should be.)

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

So the loss of row “C” and even with the addition of battens still contributes to an overall net gain!
Nice to see continued innovationin in foil kites.

Re: Aero 11m

On the basis the speed system is the same for the Aero V1, you can at least check the speed system as detailed in the link. https://www.peterlynnkiteboarding.com/storage/downloads/depower_bridle_tuning_guide.pdf Incidentally, I have only had wing tip tuck once on one of my Chrono’s that was when I h...

Re: Flysurfer LCL doesn't work?

Considering the phase "weakest link in the chain" •Bridle line •Little Line Connection •Tab (sewn into the trailing edge) •Kite fabric itself For the LCL to act as a “fuse”, the LCL breaking strain surely would need to be considerably less than everything else in the chain (Weakest link in the chain...

Re: Flysurfer LCL doesn't work?

See section 11.02 “Little Connections Lines”
https://flysurfer.com/files/dlm_uploads ... ual-EN.pdf
The idea of replacing bridle lines quickly is a good feature of the LCL.
