  2. What's your flying background? Have you flown a quad foil? Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  3. I agree lol Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  4. Anyone looking for a solid bag this might just be it. I know most fly framed kites but anyone who has foils or kites that pack down to a size that fits in a back pack this thing is perfect. Switch universal kite bag, was 75$ it's made for lei so it's large in size! Works great and is expandable. Worth taking a look at [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  10. What did@monstermike end up picking up? Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  11. I picked up a 7.7 twister last summer I'm sure I can handle the Beamer! Now that kite I'd be safe to say is crazy but a blast to fly! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  12. I would hope we all know the inherent facts of either harnessing or holding on to basically a parachute! Lol these are definitely not for the faint of heart. Before I bought my first foil I watched tons of vids and read tons of materials on flying characteristics. The thing I see a lot is people just don't respect the power that is in their hands and that's when people get in trouble. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  20. Yeah, anytime you go to bar from handles your always going to lose turning speed and how tight the kite will turn. No bar will make up for handles Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    What knot are you break lines on? Should be the farthest out on handle. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  22. Of course I have, yeah it's awesome in giving your arms and shoulders a break! Can fly a lot longer in high winds. I love it, the only con compared to handles is you lose some turn ability and need more wind to fly. You can't fly with the bar in anything less than 10 maybe a little less but it's just not fun at that point. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    Yes in low wind it can be a little work to get her up, that's normal and a good practice for when it's super windy you don't want to take it straight up! You'll want to take it up at an angle towards the edge of the window. Wait till you fly it on a beach at about 25 then it's fun lol enjoy! Sounds like your getting used to it Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
