  1. 2019 NAISH Foiling

    Damn, I thought it was a new Naish foil kite.
  2. 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.
  3. eBay & Gumtree Finds

    Damn! And another @andy666 too!
  4. NestPhoto KAP Images

    Nice pics, but where you kite surfing, land kiting?
  5. 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.
  6. Kite foil

    What wood are you using? I've built model planes in the past. I am sure I'll be able to have a crack at one myself. Thanks for sharing @socommk233
  7. Peter Lynn Arc Comprehensive FAQ

    Shame the guy never got around to updating the site with the Synergy measurements
  8. Which size Pansh aurora 2 to buy?

    Care to revise that statement? Looks like PANSH have nailed it this time. I think it's time we open our minds and eyes a little more and accept that prices for most retail kites are way outside the expectations of anyone wanting to get into this sport for the first time. And all the fanbois and die-hards that have been living on a placebo effectively, will one day wake up and bring those ridiculous prices down - way down.
  9. Which size Pansh aurora 2 to buy?

    Aparantly the purple and black wing-tip option gives you an extra 3knots of low-end wind range.
  10. Flysurfer Boost3 Kite

    I've flown the Boost v1 and v2 here in Townsville, and I have to agree with Kami. You even see the "wobble" in the promo video above! Frankly I found my old Speed 3 15m foil way more powerful and more comfortable. Shame really. Stick with foils FS.
  11. Advice seeking on how to tune bridles - A,B,C and Z

    Thanks guys. Yeah it would be good for someone out there with a "working" Aurora 1 to post their bridle lengths. Oops forgot that it would be GOOD OF ME to do the same with my PL Waterfoil !!
  12. Advice seeking on how to tune bridles - A,B,C and Z

    Tuning a kite is not just about making either the steering / front lines longer or shorter. I get that. But for kites that have a mixer like Flysurfer kites, is it the same principle in tuning the bridles? My Pansh is up for sale, but I flew it out of the bag last week for the first time in a year, to see if everything is ok. Alas, the leading-edge crumbled on me when the kite went to 12 o'clock. It doesn't tend to happen along the other areas of the wind-window, such as 3, 2 and 1 o'clock, but only when it's at zenith. And not all the time, sometimes. The problem I think is that when the wind dies down a little, the leading edge collapses, and doesn't hold its shape like a Flysurfer does. The kite used to fly perfectly, and I think some bridles have either shrunk or stretched. I was told that by shortening the B or C (or both), this problem tends to go away. I've not done that yet, but when I do align the bridle connecting points, they are about 2-3cm apart in this order: A is longer, followed by B and then C. What tips/advice could you give please?

    You're scaring meeee !!!!
  14. Wow, that 19m looks tempting. I have the Speed 4 15m deluxe and I have to say it is my favorite kite for boosting. I wonder how much air I would get with the 19m, but I am worried it will be very slow to turn once at peak height. How much of a jumper is she really?
  15. Peter Lynn Waterfoil 5.6

    Bahaha... he wouldn't take my $2 offer. Besides, WTFWIWTKF, as I already have one !?
