Re: Best kite for hydrofoil?

I own a quiver of Clouds and a quiver of Peaks (5/4/3) for kitefoiling only. Unless you want to kitefoil in waves (and this is not your case) peaks have no added value compared to Clouds. If you want to ride in flat water and do some tricks, using a big wing and thus riding a small kite, then nothi...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

if you want to go sub 10 - 1500 cm2 wing instead longer lines give you much more fun. 1500 wings are also really pump-able which add another level of fun - powerless wave to wave. I now tend riding 1500 wing all the time /moses 790 instead 633/ - Its Peak kite size difference between them in power t...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Light kite have less peak power than heavy kite. Reason for this is you can directly change kite forward speed momentum for lift. Heavy kite have more momentum = more energy to change for lift Sorry to say tomtom, but this is definitely not true... dont have time for explaining and arguing. Things ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Just changed my foil board from 120 x 49 x 5 cm³ to 100 x 43 x 2 cm³ (length x width x thickness), in combi with the Moses W633. I found out very quickly that a "no-volume" pocket foil board is not a good combination with the Peaks to manage the very lowest end of the Peaks´ ranges... :oops: The Pe...
