well, at least there are few corporations left in the world in which a real person answers the phone and actually wants to help you instead of just charge you. :D

The flysurfers are awesome but don't get them all tangled in the other lines it will take you a while to get it back as how it was :D

Nah the lines don't tangle that much as you don't remove them from the kite when you wind them back on the bar.

First time you launch it in light wind it will look kind of scary if you don't preinflate it a lot. The tips look all scary as it goes up to zenith. They won't get caught or wraped. Let it go to the top and then give it a few light left and rights if the wind is light and they will inflate all the way. Oh and the transition from bows to the speed 3 is fairly easy but you have to remember not to over trim in light wind. The combination of light light bar presure and the jet flaps let you keep the kite flying just fine with more angle of atack/ over sheeted then is optimal. It stays up and pulls but it works bettter if you ease out a bit and let the kite acelerate.

Congrats and welcome to the giant flying spageti monster fraternity. :)

i LOVE this thing.. it's like going from a 4 cylinder civic to a brand new tahoe.. bar pressure is soo light and effortless, I thought my bow kites were light on the bar pressure, but this thing is rediculous.. there was a nice breeze after I had first gotten it fully inflated so I pulled in and before I knew it I was hanging right there in the air, lifting off ever so smoothly and the hangtime is awesome.. worth every penny in my book..

a LOT frustrating though to put it away for the first time.. I'm thinkin about getting the 12m too, but i'll wait and make sure this thing is everything I think it is when I can get it out on the water..

it still scares me, the fact that I can crash my 12m in the water, and it's going to float no matter what even if waves hit it, but this, seems like it'd be a nightmare if a wave hit it before I could get it back in the air..

The flysurfer can have some waves don't worry about that! My voodoo's were bouncing off the water IF I was able to crash them.
