Flysurfer speed 3 19 meter foil kite
Just wanted to write a quick review of how amazing this kite is.
Amazed at the amount of power and stability. Handheld wind meter says 9 mph I am lit once I got out there I actually had to depower the kite a little bit.
Kite flys park and ride you do not need to work it in fact the kite does not like being worked to hard.
Jumps in 10 knots. I didn’t have my heal straps so didn’t try any rolls or tricks but seemed like there was definite potential.
Negatives – Bar pressure.
Overall spectacular kite defiantly innovation into the future of light wind riding for anyone that can get there hands on one of these babys.
Keep in mind I only weigh 155 this kite would make a great addition for a heavy riders quiver or as a super light wind kite.
My Quiver: Slingshot Fuels/rallys, Naish Rides, Switch Kites, Orange Brokite Board and Zap Skimboard.

High bar pressure you say? What did you have the wac set on? It's adjustable bar pressure you know. Although I don't find the hard seting on the 15 all that hard. Could be I'm compairing it to a kahoona and the xbow3/contra3 though.
Me = 145lb + 6" + (15M spd3 dlx, 11M x-bow, Kahoona 9.5M, 7.5V2) + Zap skim, home made 133 orange carbon aka Bifrost, home made black 170x50 cabon racing light wind tt, 133 wide tip carbon) + red helmet

having tried it, I don't find any minuses except for the cost, bridle mess, folding tips and problematic self landing , bar pressure is fine (especially compared to kahoona's, not that they are in the same league), but otherwise reasonably responsive for it's size, pulls like a train and yet goes upwind really well...
