  1. WTB: Peter Lynn Charger II - 12m or close to it ideally

    Sold all my PL foils in the past year and all I have are my LEs and one Flysurfer Speed 2. So I want an Arc kite again. Make me an offer over $2 (sorry had to put that in for you-know-who).

    Prototype? How does it compare to the official version? I am missing and regretting selling my PL foils. Yeah so I am after the Synergy or better yet a Charger II if anyone has one?
  3. Flysurfer Speed 2 19m - mixer issues

    You guys are amazing! Thank you so much. I've made some adjustments as per some in the kitefoil.com forums suggested (way back then when it came out), but I have to fly it to test. If it fails my "lofty stamp of approval" flying style, I'll try your awesome tips. Thank you soooooooo much again.

    LOL. Yeah I saw that and thought..... hmmm does it come with solar panels and motor for when the wind dies?
  5. Flysurfer Speed 2 19m - mixer issues

    Aww come on guys. Have I annoyed you all too much or something?
  6. WTD: Flysurfer easy line connectors or PANSH variant

    All sorted. I bought a swag of ELCs from a new Flysurfer dealer in NSW. Daves' the man.
  7. Flysurfer Speed 2 19m - mixer issues

    Hi guys, I am hoping someone kind enough will help me tune this kite properly. Thanks in advance for your time. I've tuned this kite like 6 times now, and it still wants to fly past my head and into my rear! But if I shorten the back lines on my bar, the kite stalls into the wind window. I just can't seem to get it into that sweet spot. A great kite, but pulls like a truck if it suddenly wants to go to the zenith or edge of the wind window. So in flight, if I give the AOA full power, the kite flies over my head. If I pull the trim strap all the way out, the kite sits too low into the wind window, and it slowly and gradually picks up speed and pulls like a truck when it's moving into the zenith. There is a powerkite forum thread about this very problem and someone recommended the B and C bridles be shortened, and to ignore the "mixer test" alignment videos on youtube. I've not done this yet. My lines on the bar are all equal, including the fifth. I have flown it without the 5th line, and it really wanted to fly over my head. When I put the fifth back on, it steadied a bit better. Seems the natural weight of the 5th line and bridles makes it "heavier" so it floats better? Anyone had experience with this very kite, and how it flew for you? The latest is that A, B and C are all aligned, but I've left Z alone. Both sides are the same. I cannot get the Z adjusted anyway unless I change over the line entirely to something shorter (by about 2 inches). And yes, I've loosened the WAC line whilst tuning. Thank you so much for any advice.
  8. Pansh Adam 5.5 on PL Cross Over Bar

    The crossover bar is worth more. Nice!

    Lost mine yesterday. Hole in pocket!
  10. FS: Depower and chicken loop

    Just what I've been looking for. PMd
  11. 2019 NAISH Foiling

    Damn, I thought it was a new Naish foil kite.
  12. FS: Flysurfer Speed 3, 15m. Complete with bar & lines.

    It did look well looked after. I was about to offer you something for it, but I bought a 19m instead from Denmark. Luckily I have family there. And yeah I was going to offer a lot more than $2.

    Damn! And another @andy666 too!

    Nice pics, but where you kite surfing, land kiting?
  15. Nice low wind session from Kris Beech

    Someone should do a good video of landkiting at Elwood. All I have are now grey and fainted memories of my son and I giving it a go there back in 2013, with my old Montana V 12m.
