Re: Unsettling vibes from Cabrinha - what's up?

I know they are working on a one strut

And who knows if they are going to a two year cycle or just skipping on year due to COVID/new ownership

Hopefully they are working on a lighter Dacron

My drifters would be unstoppable :D

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Tried my 5m Peak4 today on 23m lines, first time flying it. No previous experience on foilkites. Was around 9-10 knots, big surf wing. Couldnt get up on the foil with it. Switched to my LEI 9m ultra and got up and foiling in a few swoops. Had to work the kite to keep going and toeside was barely po...

Re: F ones magnet carbon

Abt light pocket boards, for example my Moses T22 is 1960 grams and it's "cheap". But back to Magnet; really interesting board. Finally bigger manufacturers are bringing thinner boards. I find thinner really good; much easier to do real flex in to a foam board. Currently riding customs which are 1,...

Re: Flysurfer Peak4 in 5 m2, truly stoked

14 - 17 knots seems a bit high for the 5m with a big surf wing? I was thinking 12 - 17 was what we were aiming for? You can ride in 12 knots when average weight, but IMO not the sweetspot for a 1200 surf wing (when no waves) If waves, of course above sweetspot is lower, no doubt :thumb: But in gene...
