Olly Bridge, FLYSURFER Kiteboarding Race Athlete
At FLYSURFER Kiteboarding, we made weight reduction one of the important development goals for the SONIC Race VMG. The new X-Light Fabric has the best qualities for maximum performance and impressive longevity. The incredibly lightweight (32g / m²) double-ripstop material is highly tear-resistant as well as airtight, and provides an extremely smooth sail. The X-Light cloth underlines our philosophy of sustainability. You can trust the X-Light Fabric – built into your SONIC Race VMG – to help you reach your best performance every season.
3-Level Bridle Design (A, B, Z)
The next generation in race-kite development. The 3-level bridle design dramatically reduces the number of lines and the associated resistance by an incredible 15% (compared to SONIC RACE). The fully-spliced, uncoated Dyneema SK99 lines are the perfect choice for this application. The result: the best angles at maximum speed on every course. The SONIC Race VMG cuts cleanly through the air.
Modern Competition Technology
Our FLYSURFER Kiteboarding athletes worked hard with the R&D race specialist Benni Bölli on the fine tuning of the kites. The sleek SONIC Race VMG is designed to use the shortest flying lines (from 12-17m, depending on the size), to allow for the fastest manoeuvres and kiting at the lowest angles. The highlight is the mixer, which can be adjusted by means of a new splice system. Thanks to new development insights, the mixer is now even simpler in the SONIC Race VMG. Only one splice can be used to adjust the entire B level.
The SONIC Race VMG is imbued with our most cutting-edge technologies taken from both the kite and paragliding development. Proven features such as Cordwise Ballooning, Rigid Foil Technology, and Sharp Mini Ribs are integral parts of the design. The heart of the kite is in its lightweight construction: the arc curve on the B-level allows the surface to be supported along the entire span by means of fewer lines while at the same time keeping the load evenly distributed. The X-Light fabric makes the construction stiffer and allows for an incredible maximum speed with full control in the most difficult conditions.
Automatic Drainage System
Our proven drainage system is integrated in the entire trailing edge of the kite and terminates with 4cm long openings near the tips. This drainage system allows water and sand to be drained automatically, without affecting the performance of the kite. This feature allows you to get back in the race quickly after a crash.
Open Class Racing
Take part in all “Open Class” kite races. We have designed the SONIC Race VMG for all competitive riders who always want the fastest material. Your FLYSURFER SONIC Race VMG can be used for every race of the HydroFoil Pro Tour, the Kitefoil Gold Cup, Kitebuggy Championships, Snowkiting Championships and all national racing classes. For the Formula Kite class, our SONIC RACE is the registered series production kite.
SONIC RACE VMG … revolutionary design
The FLYSURFER Kiteboarding R & D Team raised the bar once again! With a complete revision of the wing profile and adapted aspect ratio’s, we further improved the aerodynamic efficiency and above all the control of the beloved SONIC RACE. The more rigid construction of the performance tuned SONIC Race VMG shows its strength in all conditions including extreme high & low-winds. Supported by a 3-level Bridle Design (A, B, Z) riders have a clear advantage over the competition – the drastic reduction of bridle lines reduces air resistance (Drag) by an unbelievable 15%! This allows the athlete to ride with maximum top speeds and with the best possible angles over the entire race course. Looking inside of the VMG, minimalism is emphasized, fewer attachment points of the balance bridle lines are perfectly supported by a special mix of materials only at high stress areas. This ultra-light wing has unparalleled light-wind performance.
The SONIC Race VMG makes it clear that we have made no compromises to produce a truly unique race winning closed-cell foil kite, ambitious products make for outstanding achievements! Check out the revolutionary SONIC Race VMG by FLYSURFER!

The Wind Range Chart is to be used as a point of reference. It is based on a rider who weighs around 75kg (165lbs.) Actual use will vary depending on your weight, skill level, board size and the wind conditions on the water or land. When choosing a kite size, always use common sense and always choose a smaller size if you are not sure, especially when using the kite on land.
