Wish I could but I can only really jump one way. Need some advice to fix it properly.

You may get in touch with a 200% regular stance rider with the same kite and swap kites every month to distribute the stress symmetrically ^^

I think riding your kite in southern hemisphere could also help as I heard everything is wrong way around there, when you flush toilet vortex spins other way around than in northern hemisphere.

The PMAs might be worth a fiddle to tackle the wingtip folding? I think that was what they were designed to allow.

I have the soul 10m. It’s had a good deal of use now but getting an issue with the left wing tip folding under on turns now. I think this is because I am a goofy rider and use it for free ride and boosting and mainly jump on one direction to the right. But it’s the left tip that folds.
I have tried to re tune it on the mixer but this doesn’t work or stop the fold. Has any one else had this issue and managed to correct it on an older kite?
I bought a 13m sonic ex demo from Flysurfer it did the same on purchase and have never managed to get that one sorted out either or have a good ride on it safe. but now my soul is starting to do the same I am concerned I won’t be able to correct it as can’t figure which bit needs adjusting when the mixer is spot on?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
You could check the symmetry of the bridles above the place where the trim happens. I think it is called long mixer test and there is a video on how to do it. Maybe your kite got released in strong wind one time then it could have turned slightly asymmetric, that has happened to a kite of mine once. I then pulled the bridle lines that where shorter so that they where the same as the stretched ones on the other side and the asymmetric behavior stopped.

Once you have done that you can tune camber out by shortening B and C levels a little, which should make it more stable. Or alternatively just lengthen Z a bit (pigtail on where Z attaches), which does the same and it might also be that Z has shrunk a lot.

Going to try that making a longer. Maybe that’s the answer. Shortening b and c made my sonic fly slightly better but never fixed the issue.
