Imho, Flysurfer Soul 12 is one of the best ULW kite for foiling that I've ever tried. It is stable, easy to relaunch and quite fast in the flight window. With a high lift foil is a killer combo.

Cheers

Ok, last mid season I bought a used Flysurfer Sonic 2 13m to complement my Hyperlink 9m UL.
I've flown it 10 times and it's a good kite in wind range compared to the Hyperlink. I've had some great light wind sessions on it on a big hydrofoiling wing.

But now I'm wondering if there is a less extreme ( less racy) foil kite that I could pick up used and it would be easier to handle.
Mainly my only issue is that it's extremely slow to turn. I'm on 20m lines and 60cm bar.

I'm looking to switch out used for used...
Try to test Ozone Chrono V3 Ultralight 13m. Unbelievable combination of easy handling and performance even in lightest winds.

I personaly dont believe in loops. Sine down from opposite edge right in front of you and then gradual upstroke. If you have problem on ONDA with sonic 2 13 on 7-10 then there must be something wrong. I actualy consider sonic 2 11 powerstroke too much for onda in anything above 8 knots - at 89 kg naked.
Yea, what's wrong is I suck at it! I'll practice more
