Re: Lost at sea @Tenerife - expected at any Atlantic coast

I had a similar problem but not as bad since I didn’t lose my board. The harness stitching on the webbing that held my spreader bar broke allowing my harness to split in two. The bar got ripped out of my hands and I watch my kite fly away. It was a Peter Lynn Arc with auto zenith and the harness act...

Re: The fight against smelly gear

I dry my wetsuit inside out on a HangAir hanger and boots and gloves on a PEET dryer. Both work well for keeping the stink out. https://www.amazon.com/Underwater-Kinetics-HangAir-Hanger-Built/dp/B0011G1F8S https://www.amazon.com/PEET-Multi-Electric-Dryer-DryPorts/dp/B001M4ITVU/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

The Peak 4 is also my first foil kite. For launching I’ve been hot launching them from straight downwind - backstalling on the way up. For landing my favorite method so far is to drop the kite on a wing tip at the edge of the window and pull in the bottom front line. [/quote] How much do you pull o...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hello all, I searched the thread, but found only 8 occurrences of "fifth line", so took the courage to ask hoping it's not an old question... How many fly the Peak 4 without a fifth line, and how do you feel re: safety and landing? I like the Connect bar's simplicity and low weight, but for my larg...

Re: Softest surf strap?

NSI Proton are my all time favorite straps. Very soft on the feet.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Anyone have any recommendations on how to recover a small Peak 4 after slacking the lines? I’m 6 sessions in on the 5m and really enjoying the kite. It is my first foil kite. I’m 75 kg and riding the Cloud 9 X24 foil (1138 sq-cm). I was out on my 5m Peak 4 yesterday in really light wind (barely any ...

Re: Clouds are fragile

I have tons of hours on my Clouds and not a single issue with them. No damage, tears, leaks, etc.

I mostly use them for waves and foiling.

Re: Would you buy a very sharp wing?

Yes. My Cloud 9 is nice and dull. I’m not very concerned about landing on it.

Re: Big surf wings

My favorite wing for kiting in waves is the Cloud 9 X24 (1138 cm2). I also have a X28 (1414 cm2) but find it too big in anything other than light wind. The X22 (906 cm2) is a fun wing but I find it a little small for waves.
