I got my 10 metre soul today , and I love the 2 bag setup , and I get my 6 metre soul next week
It's more like a 1 bag setup, and a hideous backpack. 😁
I actually think this new bag is the best FS has made in a long long time. The grey/orange simple bag was ok but without a shoulder strap, I found it pretty useless. This new bag is very useable. I can fit both my 6 and 10 with bars and the pockets are nice and large. While the color is a little too “youthful” in my opinion, it does ooze quality. My only complaint is I wish the bag was a little longer. It’s difficult to fit a 60cm bar rolled in a kite in the bag. It’s doable but I fear I’ll eventually pop a zipper.
My thoughts exactly having just packed my 12 plus 60cm bar in its new bag.. And BTW..I know you cop a lot of flack on here for some reason, but having watched your 10m Soul vid again last night.....unless the detractors can offer up a similar evidence of their abilities with the Soul.....I’ll take your opinions any day, when you can bust moves like that...and I own 7 LEI to 1 Foil, so I’m no FS fanboy..yet. Peeeeace!

Loved my 15m Soul. Could take it out in 25kts and still always feel in control. My Woo record is on that, 19 meters.
That seems mighty high for a 15m foil to me.. :o Are you 100% sure that was a legitimate jump ? if so then well done and impressive, any photos of your jumps.

I have seen cwood and his Kitefoil buddies jumping. They look like they could clear two telephone poles on top of one another. But I find the amazing thing is they usually have a controlled smooth landing :thumb:

In Ontario we spend all of our time sub 20kts so big foil kites and hydrofoil are our saviors for having any chance at big boosts. The "eye woo's" are a good reality check :-)

Should make you smile. He’s shredding it....what makes me laugh (apologies J) is to begin with he looks about 90 😀 - but not later on. Forgives me J.

Wish I had some pics/vids but that spot I ride alone(had to get special permission to launch). I was constantly doing 18m+ on the Woo that day. During the spring in Djibouti it brings some impressive wind and at the time my 15 was the only kite I had. Still amazed at the top end of the Soul. Couldn’t walk the next day though lol

You can definitely jump 15m foils in over 25knots. Kite high jumps are just the beginning with such power so over 20m high.
