18M Flysurfer speed 5 best kite ever!


Sharing the stoke with this video of my day out with the Flysurfer speed 5 18M. Seriously one of the best kites I ever flew. iIt cuts upwind like crazy and pulls like a 20M LEI, yet its still very stable to handle. Best kite ever!

Nice one! I was hugely impressed with the Sonic 18 . . . and everyone says the S5 is almost as good but more friendly than Sonics :o



Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

Yea the speed 5 18m is one heck of a kite handles like a dream . the sonic is a little more intense to fly. this kite has a sonic feel to it but not as agressive. a nice mix of the two.i dont knw where people compare these kites to an lei i switched to a 16m right after and it felt like a wet slug. no way u can comprae these kites to LEI's. thyre in their own league. and the way it cuts upwind with power is insane.

Come on down, we fly at plumb beach in Brooklyn and on a windy evening there is atleast 20 kitesurfers there. The speed 5 definitely has a leg up on the 4. Its a little more like the sonic but friendlier, the 18m is really a great kite. Light wind kitesurfing is the best smooth chop free water and not many kiters out there.

I used the gopro hero 4 silver set to 1080p at 60fps. I think Gopro is honesly the best sports camera out there right now. although I think garmin just came out with a really good one.
