Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Yes on a surfboard in that wind. The peak drift is amazing but the kite is a pain to fly on land and you have to stomp it to ride upwind. This is near the collapsing unmanageable windspeed for this kite. There are so many better choices unless Peak is your light wind insurance policy and you have li...

Re: Why not more canards ?

the seem very unstable on straight runs...particularly in high winds - even with XL wings....although its good once you get into wave... I'm not convinced this is specific to canard foils. Zeeko Spitfire is totally flat without anhedral or winglets on both the wing and canard. Spitfire has low yaw ...

I know that feeling! What a beautiful wing.

I wonder what Stabilo you are using? Also what do you think the minimum take of speed is as well as average speed you are riding?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

So the 11 works in waves and straight onshore winds. 16-19 knots with 14m lines. Others were flying 13m tube kites x 24m lines. Flying the kite on land is a pain in this wind. Going upwind is hard work but is doable. Downwind wave riding awesome as expected.

I wonder if Gin is using a double braid or single braid bridle?
