i've had my eyes on flysurfers for many years. i am not into leakey daipers having ridden flexifoil blades, jojo rages and peter lynn pillows since i sold my wipika 5.0 in 1999. finally they made a kite with a bridle i approve. stoked. on my 8m in mid teen mph wind plaining sweet and jibing with no slowdown. i'm catching puffs of wind on the outside keeping speed i to the beach carving waves and popping back out for another. not sure why flysurfer makes such humungus square meter kites cuz my 8m works at first whitecap to what i'm guessing is to bumpy to not bother with anyway. i'm just keeping other kites in my car until i am proven wrong.
