You can Jump a Pansh.
Sorry to sound like a troll, but jumps with 4 second hang time and maybe 6-8m height are not something that can't be done with ANY kite..
Now I got this today in my facebook feed from someone who is good but not a team rider or something..

I am looking fro stuff like this with Pansh Aurora, A15 or Genesis.. Anyone has it?

Sorry but that video is pro jumping. Certainly not a beginner nor intermediate, but PRO... but *sigh* time for me to do a video or two with my Pansh A3 15m.

It's good but not pro.

I agree with deniska the Aurora jumps are nothing special, look 2-4m to me.

It is quite different to jump on flat ice/snow than to jump on water with waves or ramps and being able to control much more wind. And if you mess something like 20-30 feet jump on ice you will quite probably end up in a hospital or worse, on water it is usually nothing.

IMO jumps in the video are quite good - of course not spectacular or anything. Kite seems to work well and I see no reason why it couldn't reach much more height in better conditions or with more capable user (no offense to bay surfer, he did well).

But who advanced/pro rider would use a Pansh? They already have the best gear.

Definitely one of the best Pansh kite videos I've seen so far.

For 1/5 the price of the "premium" kites, I'd be happy with the performance as shown in the video

I know what it takes to jump off the packed snow on a parking lot.. it takes balls and precision.. that's why i feel bad commenting about bay surfers jumps.. I probably did not do better on the snow with my limited (snow) experience..

But going back to the topic, Leif in the video I posted, is not a pro rider, in a sense that he does not make money riding Flysurfer.. You can check his woo scores and you'll see that he also rides ozone and what not.. The disconnect that I get from reading this thread is that people who post long detailed reviews on Pansh gear have no credibility imho (because I am lazy too research them? :-) )... All I know they are some rookies doing lawn mowing and nothing more. It would be nice to get an opinion from someone who broke 30-40ft on the kite (if that's possible at all)....

Hi. test aurora 3 maybe 10 minuts. In my opinion - waste a time. try to waterstart - on way down - kite generate enough power for me to stand on board, but when I try kite go up - kite stay at one place and dont fly, I fall. try this with pulling bar, with push bar, try adjust trimmer. all I can - ride 2-3 meters.

so, if you like to feel some "ancient" feeling - please try aurora

Exciting review. I like the point by point you learning to water start, another 10 years I am sure you will get it.

The disconnect you suffer from deniska is that rider ability and gear ability are intrinsically connected. It is a well known fact that pros ride well on nearly anything. Which brings laughs when brands sell gear based on the pros they have as if it defines their gear as being better when it is not. Whats going on with flexifoil again? :lol: :lol:

This height is easy on any kite. In fact double that is not too hard either.

Most skilled riders aka pros consider big jumps the same.

I actually thought that malden's opinion was interesting..
Just because I saw his videos waterstarting FS kites..
He is no pro for sure but he can break 30ft

He would do much better with some loops. The soul has quite some PA change, surprising I hadn't seen that aspect of it. If all you want to do is jump you should get a race kite. The upcoming Aeolus looks good. 30ft is no issue on a Pansh.
