Am I the only one who likes the idea of a single-skin kite but hates the pinched "dents" in the middle of the wingtips?
Ozone XXLite wing doesn't have that defect....

Thank you for the video. It looks like you had a lot of opportunities to fly the new Flysurfer Peak 3.

Flysurfer has put together a couple promotional videos, but the videos do not answer some of my questions:

1. It appears from the videos that the difference between the Peak 2 and the Peak 3 are the kite colors, the new reef line and the Peak 3 is lighter in weight than the Peak 2. The aspect ratio appears to be the same. However, is the bridle setup the same?
2. I am curious if the bar pressure has been reduced?
3. Is FS going to design a bar specifically for the Peak 3? I still have my Infinity light bars that I purchased with my Peak 2. Will the Infinity Light bar still be available?
4. Does the kite flutter less than the Peak 2 or about the same?
5. How does the Peak 3 compare to the Peak 2 for jumping? The Peak 2 was a huge improvement over the Peak 1.

The peak 3 is supposed to be lighter I'm not sure if its because of a different type of fabric or not. the amount of bridle has been redesigned and also reduced for less drag. and it is sold kite only or with bar. there is not a specific bar per say as the peak 2 bar can be used but I believe there will be a new bar also . I liked the peak but not the small sizes as I don't think they can handle strong gusty wind well. I agree the bar pressure and fluttering was annoying but this is part of the single skin design . the 6m and up were really good light wind kites.

I love the shot of the kite at 1:57. Kite looks great. I wonder if flysurfer has tested a foil/single skin hybrid, I think it could work really good for surf. Single skin on all or part of the TE, better CG, more drag when depowered so better drift, well maybe :-)
