The kite in the vid is not exactly a ‘looker’, is it? Hopefully it’s a proto color scheme.
Usually Flysurfer protos do not have logo nor brand name printed, so this is final coloring for some size variant.
Hadn’t thought about that but I think you are right on that one!

Ha haa, this is epic - I thought the exact opposite: FINALLY a design I really love and would want to have :D

So many other colour schemes on many brands I find plain ugly, so I was very pleased to see this one.

But impossible to discuss, just like asking "do you like red or green the best?" :rollgrin:

I’d be shocked if it comes in less than $1000, more likely $1200 (half way between $600ish of Peak5 and $1800ish of Soul).
They will have bad sales of Hybrid if they make 1000 or above for 5m. Biggest advantage and popularity of Peak was inexpensive price, for 1000 you can buy new perfect balanced SS UFO, and definitely UFO is more serious and with much bigger range and 100 percent relaunch kite than Peak, plus much safer in big sea and waves.
Gin Marabou 2 is US$1250 for the smallest size. I’d be surprised if FS ended up less for a hybrid.

I think the optics are pretty nice when the kite is in the air.

I did not realize Kyle (the OK Kiteboarder) included footage of the hybrid in his AWSI recap…

Edit: and I didn’t realize the video was linked deeper in the earlier link on the first page. Well here it is again if you don’t click into this links!

If they let you fly it, surely they didn’t say you couldn’t talk about it…!
