Flexifoil Super 10 Power Kite

Flexifoil Super 10 Power Kite

Post by Gary Pee » Sat, 22 Jul 2000 04:00:00


Hi

After 12 months or so flying two line trick kites, I've started to be drawn
towards power kites.

I've flown a ENPW5 4.8 on 4 lines and a mirage, both I found to be great
fun.

What I want to know is how does the Super 10 compare to the nasa.

I'm 13 stone and I want a kite that will pull me around the beach but also
be more controllable than the nasa (have you ever tried to land one of these
in 20+mph winds?).

I also want to try some body surfing and in the near future use the kite for
buggying.

Please bare in mind the price tag 130ukp.

...........Gary

Hi Gary,
 If you want a good kite that will pull you around & is controlable & cheap,
have a go at one of the foils that I have made. I'll lend you the plans so
you can make one yourself if you like them. Which ever you pick you will
definately be able to make it for a lot less than the 130.00 you quoted.
 Probably more like 40- )
Other than that, have you not considered a c-quad? Very powerful and as
cheap as you'll get, pull for .....
See you up the Beacon......

Hi Ste

Thanks for the offer but the weather is to good to be stuck inside building
kites, I've still got the ENPW5 to bridle up yet  ... yes the sail is
finally finished.

Well today Saturday 22nd I went out and bought a super 10 , pulls ok in the
light breeze we had at beacon today. I'll be taking it to St Anne's on
Sunday and I'm hopping for stronger winds.

catch you around

.....Gary

Gary,

One Super 10 will NOT pull you around the beach very much. I'm 15 stone, but
I had one on top of Portland Bill in a 25 mph wind last week, and even
during a power dive, I stayed on my feet no problems.

Ian.
