Soul v1 turnover

Postby Jyoder » Fri Jul 09, 2021 4:05 pm

Seeing tons of well used Soul v1s for sale for cheap these days. Is there a durability issue I’m not aware of, I’m tempted to scoop one up but the numbers make me wondering if there’s something hush hush.

New Soul on the market so people are upgrading. I have a V1 8m is going strong but I might let it go to make room in my car.

The ones on ikitesurf? So many scam ads, and so many of them Souls I notice.

I had mine for couple of years, no durability issues to speak of, the new material is rated for 2500 hours of use (while the old flysurfers were rated at 500)
Sold mine to learn hydrofoiling, but probably will pick up a new v2 eventually.

Very true. The number of scams on ikitesurf classifieds is out of control. Be careful!!

I've had my 10m Soul for about 2 years and it's still going strong. It's a great kite for hydrofoil, and I'm not aware of any quality control issues with the Soul.

in Australia only one 12m $1800, one 10m $2300

So not cheap at all.

For Crna Gora, nisam siguran za 6m, kakav vi vjetar tamo imate? ;)

I think the kites before the soul were rated at 500 hours, but i have a friend that still uses 10+years old flysurfers and they still fly great. So the soul should last at least double that time if taken care of.
