Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Dumbass (no wind) question...

...as a big fan of autozenith (enjoyed that feature for many years :wink: ) and avid avoided of dropping the kite (see autozenith comment :o ) Would you use a peak to learn foiling (big stable Gong type foil)?

Thanks,
Mike

Gong Std or Pro to start

Hi Foilers! Sorry, I'm sure this has been beaten to death. Foil Newb (ride strapless homemade directional junk), 93kg naked, kiting since 2002. Too few sessions per year. Sensitive to budget.

Re: rear line adjusters for bar

Thinking about a simple lock system...you could use an type of oversize shoelace clamp, blocked with a knot above an below (on the loop line) and sliding on the line that Herman locks off with the half hitch. Grab the clamp (and squeeze) so free the lines... an push / pull as desired. All one handed...
