Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I'd go with the "less is more" position. I'm not sure light weight is inherently expensive ... except in Aluula. Foiling has opened up new criteria for optimal kite characteristics - Flysurfer seems to have stumbled across this almost accidentally, with the Peak4s. Indeed, light weight by itself is...

It's not surprising they're "cheap" - there's nothing to them! You're not getting a lot of "stuff" for your money!
yes we do. light weight . It is usually very expensive to make a light weight durable kite. it is "in the package", just not visible :D

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Kitefoiling on ~1000cm2 foil wing I find 8m Peak equal to 12m strutless lei but slightly harder to waterstart with (180 lbs). That makes my low end ~8 kts but not much fun to ride, mowing the lawn and paying extra attention not to slacken the lines during jibes as the kite likes to roll leading edge...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I spent only short time on Peaks and for me 5m Peak4 (22m lines) replaced my beloved 8m Naish Trip strutless which was good from ~10 knots in steady ocean breeze (Pacific), 4m replaced 6m LF wave kite (I buy cheap and usually each LEI size ends up a different brand :-( ). Those two cover typical win...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

15 kn should be plenty for 4m

Re: Armstrong Hs1050 speed range

Don’t forget the stabilizer wing. If you want to go faster make sure you have the smaller tail wing

Re: hybrid high wind wing and kite board

It will depend on your weight and on how big of the board you are willing to use for kitefoiling. Just an example:

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Being too lazy to search thru this thread, how is Peak4 holding up over time? Given the flutter, I wonder if fabric has tendency to wear out near the trailing edge as it does on strutless kites. Naish Trips I have do exhibit this over time despite my effort to use as small size as possible, to minim...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

drsurf expressed exactly what my expectation is of the Peak4 in 8 m²! However, I´m hoping that selling my loved 10 m² Naish Boxer was not a mistake ;-) The Peak shall replace it, with 1-2 kts better low end, hopefully. One main consideration in terms of getting the 8 m² Peak was: When you´re out in...
