FLYSURFER POSSIBLE TRIM FOR THE GIVEN WIND CONDITIONS / Kitesurfing Mallorca kite blog

Flysurfer kitefoils are a very special type of kites because the same fact of being a foil, means that for not having any hard/rigid part on its profile, we will be able to alter this profile and therefore, the behaviour of our kite can be adapted to our riding preferences.

In the following diagrames we will see the different trim possibilities, how can be achieved and which will be the results of our choice.

When your Flysurfer kite it is trimmed on the figure under this lines, the kite is set in its highest angle of attack to the wind, which means the kite becomes more powerful but slower.  This setting is the most adequate for lower winds.
