Re: [ksurf] Psycho / F-arc / Guerilla
- a question 2 the foil experts..
how about that PL guerilla.. it says to have "the biggest wind range of
any kite.." how does that compare to the psycho or the 1600 f-arc, which
already has 7.5 har and a range from 8-25kts, depending on rider's skill
according to the june/july dutch kitesurfmagazine. this already
impressed me though it doesn't say something about the steering part.
..it would be just great to have a second kite that has the widest wind
range plus go snowboardkiting, kiteboard (on surface that is - we don't
have any mountains), kiteskate (on ice), kitesurf on water. guess i just
want to much..

Don't know if you've seen this yet but:
Here's a video of the PSYCHO:
Here is something out of the press release:
A kite with straight vertical lift, more hangtime than any other kite
on the market and a landing softer than on a cotton pad.
A ram air kite ? Sure ! No inflation, easy set-up, super safety
release system, very durable.
A tube kite ? Sure ! Direct feeling of power, extreme depower effect,
short control bar, frightening lift with just a little pull on the
Not possible ? Yes it is ! The new WAC System (Wind Attack Control)
converts the ram air power into the tube kite handling.
But FlySurfer warns the public : "When you go out overpowered and you
jump - well, you will have a loooong time to think up there if this
was a good idea !"
For insiders : Team rider Marcus Damsell was joined by some pro
friends (Fadi Issa, Jeff Tobias, etc) when testing on Fuerte Ventura.
Typical sentence: "Fat hangtime this one!"

about the same total range as the F-ARC.

> want to much..I don't think you're asking too much. I'd say the F or Guerilla
could be just what you're looking for. The Guerilla is reportedly
much better at waterlaunching than the F.
