Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I had my first good session on the 3m Peak 4. Its a super fun kite, like a stunt kite with enough power for hydrofoil. Wind was 14-17 knots with 25 knot gusts, 1m nicely shaped waves and side off winds. The kite definitely generates its pull deep in the window in this wind range. Sometimes I had to ...

Re: Trim Ozone Hyperlink

I center the Kite there is no tendency to one side also double check the lines from the bar. Does it fly true with the bar sheeted in and also depowered? If you fly in light winds on the beach, does it turn the same right and left? Both powered and depowered? If you look at the leading edge of the ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Love my 5m Peak4 so much I"m looking forward to letting it flap riding waves down wind. Today foiling flat water in maybe 8 knot wind, on an 8m Peak4, was not fun. Plenty of pull to get going and then go up wind, but turning was PAINFULLY slow. Maybe a heavier rider on a slower platform of some sor...

Re: First foilkite

Speed is not a race kite. More free ride as are Hyperlink and Soul. Very stable. I would not compare it to even the free race kites like Sonic 2 or Chrono. Speed 3 and speed 4 lotus are remarkably similar except the cloth. I think that’s a testament to the longevity of that design. I have Speed3 and...

Re: First foilkite

Speed 3 is a pretty nice kite and will fly in less wind than your tube kite. Whether you can make it in 7 knots is hard to say. It depends on lulls and how easy it is to get to deep water. The bridle is made of robust material and line plans are published. I also think the design is stable enough pe...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

I can’t compare to Pulsion but 9m Hyperlink in regular cloth does work for me in those winds on 30m thin lines and Levitaz Cruizer (900 cm2 with good speed and low drag). However the low end of the HL is not limited by its power but by my ability to body drag out and keep the kite in the air. Our se...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Yes lighter is better, no one denies that but question is how significant differences are. At least some 132g for 12m kite is not worth mentioning. For dynamic benefit you must calculate weight differencies for complete weight of kite, including weight of the air inside. And is lighter with lower L...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Regis, it looks like you have had a couple of 12m Pulsions now. Why the changes? How are they holding up?
