Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

First proper ride on 5m Peak 4. Wind ca. 12- knots. In short best HF kite ever. You loose all your kite skills you have if you rode with peak for longer time because you dont need it with peak. You can ride STRAIGHT downwind and kite not only drift but it also remain responsible... I admit we have s...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I rode 25m lines, But it is because i have such bars. I think that Peaks dont benefit much from longer lines because they dont generate much apparent wind. I have plans to try them on shorter lines but it is still too cold here...

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

With bar attached i definitely can launch kite under minute. I have custom carbon bar that i can just go from kite and lines are unwinding themselves so its very quick affair. But you need to understand bridles and have system. I dont untwist lines at all. I trust myself and any twist there is in li...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

"My foot changes have benefited a lot from the lack of boost/lift. You can't hang on the kite, so I'm now doing a pump of the foil and a quick foot change ala Kainani Drexler. This works much more reliably for me"

this is A KEY LINE

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

The lightest I rode with 5m Rally on a 633 wing (and 200 lbs weight) was about 16 knots. I tend to loop my kites a lot for extra power, and I know single skins are not much of looping machines Do you think 5m Peak would deliver same power and fun? For me 5m peak4 has about same power than 7m neo wh...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Basicaly, windsurfing position :) On side note - about peak ground handling. My prefered launch is Cobra - classical foil kite start with one end weighted and than started from 45st. Hot launch is more problematic because without weighting kite just doesnt stay on place. For self landing i just let ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Many thanks, That is what i was thinking. Anyway about peak upwind - i think there is sweet spot where it sit furthermost in WW. Depower it more and it actually sit deeper. Anyway it is not upwind monster. :)

Re: Opinion on Line Lengths for Foiling Large Format Wings with LEI

Jakemoore, sorry for little OT - I also use anorectic P4s - did you try them on SB? I rode 95% HF and 5% SB, and selling my LEIs. Do P4s work on SB? At least somehow?
