Flysurfer speed 5 15 m the orange

Well the old brother in the quiver of Flysurfers , yet so much up to date!

I just trimmed the mixers, checked my lines (god they got big diff on the center part) and now it behaves as good close to my firends soul. However I know the soul is a better kite, i have a speed 5 at home so that is what i got to love!
And I do it. With the proper setup, it is close to being to the other beasts.

Pro:
hangtime, insane, if you use it well when you redirect the kite to the front for landing you get an extra lift, and a lot of extra time in the air.
Durability(I am the second owner now using it 2 years plus, people still asking whether it is now or what)
Speed - foiling magic full speed, super upwind
forgiving comparing prev models
well deliverable

Con:
Turbulent wind+ frontstall causing a big of a pain
relaunch works but rather a dont drop it!
Bar is falling apart after 4 years
Line stretch ( yet the fix under the floater is just great)
Need to look after the mixers.

Generally it is an amazing one, but once in a while i will swithch to the soul :)

Video:


most of the time i am on that on the gopro shots.

Vid is a little confusing because you basically only see a zian hantu...

Flysurfer makes good kites.

yeah, as i said, it is the line mount videos, mostly, when we were shooting, we had the hantu, yet on line mount, I had several times the speed 5. It is not a demo video about it for sure :) BUt hangtime wise you can see the deal :)
