    Flysurfer Boost2 11M

    I've got to say that I flew this Kite without knowing much about it at all. It came about when I was bragging to a friend on how good the liquid force Solo was and that it was an all-rounder that could not be beat. I mentioned how I have flown most kites out there already and that I haven't found a better kite yet. But he kept on insisting that there is a better kite and that's when he mentioned the Flysurfer boost 2. He insisted that it was heaps better than most of the kites out there at the moment and that its great for freestyle, Freeride, Old school and new school flying. OUT OF THE BAG I lay the kite on the floor to have a look at the build quality and all I Noticed was how solid it actually looked. Next out came the the pump I clicked it into the valve and off I went, I must say this flysurfer pump is the easiest and fastest I have ever used to date. Well my misses wasn't too impressed having 11 meter kite pumped up in the lounge but she's very understanding. FIRST FLIGHT As I said earlier have flown many other brands over my years of kiting and I have never experienced anything like this thing, OMFG. This kite is going to change the Kiting industry, its a true all-rounder. Apparently this Boost 2 has been refined with better up wind, bigger jumping and lots more hang time than the original Boost. Boy all that is so true it goes up wind at an angle that I never thought possible. It boosted bigger than any of the kites that were out in the water today and it looped like a six meter. Most of the guys had their 7s 8s and 9s out at the time and Here I was with the 11m. I don't recommend this for beginners, remember I was just testing the kite and I wasn't sure how I was gonna handle being on such a big kite with 30knt winds, but boy did it handle, I was looping the kite out of every turn doing down loops on the way down from massive jumps, but I just didn't have the confidence yet to loop while boosting as I still need to get used to the kite. This thing is amazing and I'm not just saying that. I had the kite moving around with loops and spins and the usual moves that I normally do with total confidence. Now the rip off the water was unreal, the G Force was amazing Ps I noticed I'm now 3inches taller. There is no way I could've done what I did today even with my nine meter Liquid force Solo. Well the high end seems F..CK..G AWESOME. I need to wait for a low wind day to see what it's low end is like. Stay tuned, more to come

    How I got started

    I was first bit by the bug some 7 years ago in 2010. My wife and I were on vacation in FL, and a local kite shop had an advertisement in the tourist paper for a free 1 hour kiteboarding lesson. I called them up, and they met me at the beach with a B3 trainer kite. As soon as they put the bar in my hands I was hooked. I couldn't believe the power the kite was able to generate- and I was even more amazed at how much control I had over it. Growing up, like most people, my only real experience with kites was with the basic one string kites, over which you had essentially no control. The idea that I could harness mother nature with a kite just grabbed a hold of me, and it hasn't let go. The following year we were back on vacation and I was taking my first lessons with that same kite shop, XL kites, in Destin, FL. Those guys are terrific if you're ever down in the area. Those early days were rough. I was impressed with the power of the trainer kite the year before, but I was terrified of the power that a 13m Crossbow could generate. I can remember being so completely exhausted after my first lesson, not from the physical exertion, but from the constant adrenaline that was coursing through my body as I was sure I'd get ripped up into the sky at any moment. All that control I felt with the trainer kite was gone. Depower was a whole new world, and I had to put my time in. That same year I bought my first kite (a 10m Griffin Argo - which I really love - bought another one a few years later, 14m). I did most of my riding in FL because where I live in NY it's very expensive to pay the local shops to get to the good (read safe and shallow riding areas for beginners), and if you've ever been to FL in the summer you know the wind isn't great. So, I spent most of my first few years struggling to keep the kite in the air, and getting a few rides here and there. Summer of 2014, I purchased a used Spleene Door and that board changed my life. All of a sudden, the light FL winds were enough to get riding, and I did more riding in a few days that summer than I had in the previous 4 years. Last summer, my wife and I bought a small used boat to get access to some great local riding spots here in NY, and now I feel like a real kiteboarder. I spent hours on end skimming along the surface of the water propelled only by the wind this summer, and I can't wait to get back in the water next year. It's been quite a ride, and for me, a pretty steep learning curve, but in the end it's all been so worth it. Check out my video to see me enjoying kiteboarding this summer. Cheers!
