Given (2) Sonic 2 Kites.. 11m and 21m Race. Need Advice

Postby Kitedougiefresh » Sun Jul 16, 2023 3:58 am

Is there anyone out there who could give me advice about these kites. A wealthy buddy of mine gave them to me as he only wings now. I have flown both of them on the beach. I also have Peak 6m and 8m and a newer Flysurfer 15m version 2. I want to see if they have a place in my quiver or should i sell them? i am on facebook or my number is 941-780-6396 should you want to call or text. I am in Florida.

Thank you very much in advance

Doug Hales

My advice is to ride them hard, nicely lit, build up lots of speed, then send aggressively to zenith, especially the 21m. Report back on your findings.

Weather they truly have a place in my existing quiver. I have a Peak 4 6m and 8m and a new FS Soul 2 15m. I am around 100KG and I only foil.

Why don’t you try them and decide for yourself?

The 21m should allow you to ride better powered in light wind compared to a 15m Soul. However, you may not need it depending on the wind at your local spot.

The 11m Sonic is really popular for foiling. It is going to allow you to go upwind and ride at a higher speed than an 8m Peak. The Sonic also has a lot more range than the Peak.

I hope that helps.

That helps alot. Does anything change that the 21m is a 21Race?

I need all the help i can get. Esp this time of year in Florida we don't get much of a seabreeze. Maybe 7-9 and I am about 100KG.
