Wanted Flysurfer speed2 or 3


I have a couple of locals that I just got hooked into kiting. They've been flying for a couple of months and they are taking to it really quickly. My buddy franko started on a 12m LEI and just recently is wanting to switch because he hates pumping.

He's looking into picking up a used flysurfer speed2 or 3. He has 600-1000 to spend depending on the kite and its condition. he wants me to check it out for him since he doesn't know much about kite condition and crispyness :yes:

anybody have any speeds in 12m-19m out there?

Jon currently has two listed on his site that are at both ends of the spectrum of what your friend is looking for.

Flysurfer 17 M speed 1.5 - $500

12m Speed 3 Deulxe w/FDS and Bar upgrades - $1450

Depending on how much he is willing to wiggle on price or model, either or neither might be a fit for him.

Either way, I thought it was worth sticking a Post-It on the radar screen.

ATB,
Sam

thanks for the info, i'll pass it on to franko. I know that he doesn't want the speed1 because of some review that he read, and i know for a fact that his max budget is 1000$ lol. he ownes his own electrical company which is small, i don't think he has a lot of extra cash to throw around. I'm trying to get him to create a pkf account, so i was hoping that somebody on here would have something for sale, cause that way he'd see how reliable and safe pkf is.

My understanding was that the 1.5 mod took the kite a to reasonable proximity of the Speed 2.

Might be a reasonable was to dip toes given the price. Either way, I think your friend could probably benefit greatly from a conversation with Jon just to get his bearings on Flysurfers, what he's flown and where he's headed.

Mood: They're ALL good ideas. Right up until they become BAD ideas.

If nothing turns up let me know. I've got some redundancy in the 12-13m range and the Speed could go but it's freshly tuned by Powerzone and I'd kinda like to fly it to get to know a well tuned unit. That, and I'd feel obligated to replace the pulleys before selling so that'd take time.

If your guy's in a rush this'd be a no-go but it'd certainly be at the bottom (or below) his budget.
