Re: kingofwatersports.com review

Bought a couple of kites from them over last few years or so and their customer service is good. Everything arrived within a week or so with no issues all the way to the usa . Their prices are also very competitive especially their occasional discount sales.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Interesting, why did u switch over to the smaller 3m peak for the test , would love to see this with a bigger peak . I doubt its only 8 to 12 knots considering ure foiling on a 3m and I can see the speed with which the kite rotates. . Im thinking if the wind is strong enough it may be possible to re...

Re: New f-one bar ripped apart while riding, what to expect from manufacturer?

I mean it nice to get a brand new bar for a busted line but I think its reasonable to send the broken line out only. with that being said seems these tube covered lines need to be regulary checked for wear at any point where it touches another part of the bar the cabrinha bars were doing something s...

Re: old blades and old flysurfers

Only real kiters could handle flexifoil blades back in the day. The 4.9 was called the widow maker for a reason.lol . The power and lift per square meter was great because it was explosive and raw, They dont make kites like this anymore . would like to try kitesurfing on a blade one day im sure they...

Re: When is "Big" too big?

I dont think u gain anything on the low end with a 21m kite, stick to 18m as your biggest size kite . the low end is probally 5 or 6 knts on land for both and ure not gonna get better low end with a 21m just a slower kite. 21m as far as I understand was for a heavy weight rider may be 225 pounds or ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

So where is the video of these 98 percent releaunches . Strange you have presented only photos and words so far. I tested the 8m in about 8 knts and had a zero relaunch rate with about 6 or 7 dips. May be the wind was too low considering 8 kts is not enough to kitesurf but I can tell u for sure wate...
