Flysurfer Soul : new kite


Flysurfer will launch a new kite called Soul. Lest ratio than the Speed and will relaunch by polling a back line. Should be out in April.

From what I've read, it's supposed to handle similar to an LEI - which is probably a smart move. I met a few LEI only folks kite skiing and a couple of them were very interested in trying foils.

There's some debate as to whether FS will kill the Speed, or merge the Sonic into the Speed and keep the Sonic Race... I don't know - seems like a whole lot of product overlap - Steve Jobs would be furious.

The Soul borrows the DLX/Lotus combination from the Race. Should be tough and light and pretty water resistant.
I get the feeling this is FS's answer to the Hyperlink - a great entry for the casual kiteboarder but probably has room to move in skilled hands.

Nice looking kite.

Mood: More kiting !!!

For skilled pilot and someone who could afford premium price Flysurfer was the only choice few years back and I never got disappointed by theirs products ( not counting older models like Speed 1 ... lol ) . Now it will be harder and harder for FS to gain new clients after everyone started producing performance foil kites. Foil racing bring many new kiters to foil kite market but FS maybe not a choice for previous LEI users that probably will stick with companies that they know from inflatable market . I am very interested in trying anything that I come across and especially new FS products . Soul maybe an easier option for newbs getting into performance foil and this is exactly what we need ... something between old school Franzy , MOntana or Manta and high end triple depower performance foils ....

Hi Armin - welcome to PKF! I know you're probably crazy busy right now with the release of the Soul, but it would be good if you took a second to introduce yourself here. Some might not know you (but many here know and love your kites!).

Also - if you are posting from a phone or tablet, there is a problem here with unicode text and particularly "smart quotes". You're best off posting from a computer, or turning off the smart quote feature on iOS.

I'll assume you just wanted to post the link to your latest release video, so with no further ado...



edit - and I guess the press embargo has been lifted - lots of new stuff to look at on YouTube etc... Nice looking kite.

There's been a pretty nice thread going on a german forum comparing the Soul, Hyperlink and Matrixx. It's a manageable read using Chrome or Google's translate:
