Re: If you kite and wing which to do when?

Could you start wingfoiling on a 41 liter kitefoil board with 1250cm foil? I mean, as a beginner you'd have to learn waterstart but I'm not sure if that's doable. I windsurfed my whole youth so water starting with a sail does not seem like a big deal to me but I don't see many people doing it at my ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Every Single person at the beach asks "is that a Peak? I love that, but what if your crash?" Every time. If they made the Peak 5 partly closed cell and redesigned a few details for water they would sell a lot more for sure. The opening of the tips that dumps water should be moved to the trailing edg...

Re: why exactly is the flysurfer peak the best kite ever made?

I've launched the 11 from a Windsurf spot that has rows of cars and trees on both sides and grass between about as wide as two kites. No other kiters ever go to that spot. Because you can launch directly downwind straight up to 12 on your own. You can't do that with an lei I think. I like the peak b...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I tested the 11m and 8m today back to back because since I started foiling I'm thinking about selling the 11. On a SB the 11 was my most used kite. But now I can ride the 8 before I can ride the 11 simply because it stays in the air a bit easier in lulls and is faster to loop in low wind. I found ab...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Dropping an 11m peak in breaking waves is a bit of a disaster. But if all else fails I could just leave it and ditch the kite. People on here always say the peaks never crash and can be relaunched. I agree for the small sizes in decent wind. But an 8 or 11m below 10 knots and breaking waves there's ...

Re: When did you get hooked on foiling?

I like being able to travel a bit further and explore. I was always a bit limited in a SB with Peaks going upwind and stuff. I also feel safer on a foil way out at sea. I don't know if it's because I rig smaller kites now but everything feels more controlled. I got hooked the minute I saw a friend b...

Re: Kite Skimboard - worth it?

I took my powdersurfer out this summer as there were too many weeds for a foil or even a surfboard with fins. Was surprised how well that worked, and how fun it is. I think just learning to control something different is what makes it enjoyable do I would not add fins to a skim for that reason.

Re: Who is using line lengths longer than 25 m for under 9 knots?

Are you looping the 11m? I can get up in 7knots but I've had the kite for a long time. I usually steer the kite all the way to the opposite side of the window fast and then back and get up when it races towards the edge of the window around 11oclock. The 11 loops pretty slow so I find I can get more...
