Yep it's coming. I don't know when, but I saw Marvin up here with a prototype. Very nice and very responsive. Cannot say anything more than that.

are those photos of @jhn.holgate at his house today ?

John would have to paint his sheep.

White on white would be very hard to spot in the snow.

Sonic 2's should be available around September / October time if all goes to plan. The Formula Kite Worlds are in China in September and that will be the first event they can be officially used in. Fingers crossed !

I can't wait to get my hands on them :)

Anyone seriously interested should be talking to their respective dealers about pre orders as usually in the first few months supply is quite limited.  Our season kicks off formally in October and with the Kite Foil Pro Tour coming to Perth in November, it's going to be massive this year !

All East Coasters welcome to race with us - Perth Kite Racing & Freeride club

Hrrm..... 

*cough* .... ;) 

 

Alright... alright!!!

I've had enough humble pie to last me a life time.

But I would still rather jump on a TT being able to have more freedom of movement and slightly higher jumps! I've not seen a foiler do a kite loop like Len10 does for example.

ps. Why are we frothing for the release of these new kites when most can't even afford a Speed 4!?

Freedom of movement? Bet your TT has less than a foil...

I got an 18. One tentative session in the surf on a TT. Hang time is ridiculous 

Got more sessions on the TT and the foil. Excellent kite for the foil, stable drift when downwinding it. Big jumps on the TT but I've yet to figure out loops...

      Repair time for my FlySurfer kites. The pulley lines have busted on one kite, pulley lines on others are on their way out and one none pulley bridle busted needing replacement. FlySurfer offer a line service but are expensive, so time to consider alternatives to make my own. FlySurfer does publish the line plans giving both the lengths of the finished product and the length before the loops have been made. So off I go and measure some of the bridles and they are quite different to the published data, sure I understand the lines shrink over the years as dirt gets in, but did not expect them to be so different. For instance the st1 bridle which directly attaches to the canopy at the wing tip, one attachment point foreward from the trailing edge: as measured 55cm, FlySurfer published 60 cm, that is 5cm shrinkage or 8% shrinkage. Spot checked other bridle lines, say the red ones getting similar figures. It is almost as if the dimensions are for a differnent kite. Any one else measured their FlySurfer bridles and compared to published data from FlySurfer?
      I know if any one bridle is to be replaced they must be done in pairs of left hand side plus right hand side.
      regards,

      The new Flysurfer Sonic Race has been released for 2017, this is Flysurfer's 3rd release for the Sonic series.  I've put together a quick comparison chart based off the info on the Flysurfer website.  First up for key noticeable differences however is that they've removed a whole row of bridles, instead of A B C Z bridling they're running A B Z.  Next is the cell count, moved from 49 to 65 cells, and then the wingtips whilst still having a slight flat area look far more rounded.  Overall weight is also down on the kites and they've introduced a 7M and 21M removing the 6M from the series.
      This year they're publishing suggested line lengths as well, ranging from 12M to 17M lengths in lines.
