Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi Slappysan, don't worry it is more about handling. Biggest most typical error you also see people relaunching closed cell foils: Don't oversheet (pulling in backlines) too much for backwards relaunch. Otherwise the trailing edge will colapse as you see in the video. If you, by experience, find the...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

@flying grandpa Hi Tadeusz, I think what you said is more or less what I also feel. I control speed same as on a normal foil by course and kite position. The named 80 cm (span) foil from Gong was not directly to big for my 63 kg, but hard to start with small pocket boards. I will experiment with big...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

@Denisesewa: Hi, never used a cloud but a stormkite voyager 1 in about 9 m. I think both are round about similar in how worse the l/d ratio is. And maybe also in variability of turning radius. But the rest will be pretty much different. As long your board speed downwind never exceed wind speed the P...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Sorry for the delay, but the special effects editor was obviously not available, as actually on a new Holywood blockbuster. So I had to do it again the shity style I prefer and used a lot of water drops on the lens and sidecuts to hide the helping people and boats. But maybe you like it anyway: http...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Quote windrider: "So where is the video of these 98 percent releaunches . Strange you have presented only photos and words so far. I tested the 8m in about 8 knts and had a zero relaunch rate with about 6 or 7 dips. May be the wind was too low considering 8 kts is not enough to kitesurf but I can t...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi Tom, I think your choice of 5,4 and 3,0 m² (as I understood they are in real) is pretty good. I (63 kg) was out with both in always inbetween 13 - 22 knts as seen in the screenshot below. While the 3 m² was sometimes a bit low, the 5 was sometimes a bit high powered, but both never close to their...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

As promised www.kitejunkie.com has tested again the Peak4 now in 3 and 5 m² in the water. And just in one point I was wrong: Now after minimum 70 droptests (this time also often complet out of control, guy under water, lines slack): Relaunchability has gone down from 100 % to just 98,5 % :wink: But ...

Re: Ozone R1 V3 is out?

@Mossy 757: fully agree and no doupts you will have fun with your r1v2 and sure they will be a good deal to get them used now. And sorry haven't seen this thing that just about 10 riders have competete on the "world tour" which infact influences the list. Sonic2 on the end in my impression, even whe...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Sorry I answer question for Horst :) Especially when answering questions more precise than I could, as you did, you are very welcome to do so. :thumb: Low AR or L/D ratio kites come to a limit in the low end, even when you compensate the worse upwind a bit by a big board or foil wing with lower spe...
