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

Hi Øyvind, thanks for experimenting :thumb: , to me it still sounds to stay with strut back for higher Speeds, but I have my setup nearly ready and will try the strut over wing as well in the next time. Even the design of my new board (build by Michele from GROOVE) has respected an optional even mor...

Re: The Duotone wing

@ronnie and Dan Thanks for all the information. The last video showing tacks gives the idea that the potential is not so bad. 15 years ago I had myself a kitewing used for landboarding. When started foiling I have also seen the potential in the combination. I think this and the new inflatable design...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi jatem, nice to hear and thanks for the idea to combine it with pumping. Never gone to much into it, but I can imagine it is THE kite to drift beside while learning to pump. Last session I came back with a 9 m² Sonic² at around 7 knts when the wind dropped, wanted to try 5 m² Peak4 first time in l...

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

Those videos indicate that it is possible to launch in 1-2 minutes with advanced practice/knowledge/skill, which is encouraging Hi RadDrDuke, yes 1 minute for sure will be stress, but I think the topic already answered your question, that there is no need to be worried that it will take more time w...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Is that a Peak4 jump on the surfboard? NO WAY :) Exactly, defenetly no peak that jumps like this, but some lotus, out of this old video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7mpYoSj82Y&feature=youtu.be&t=7m00s @Séb: I also would say yes, short lines could be interesting for the same reason tomtom alrea...

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

How long does it take to setup the HL or Soul from walking on the beach to riding? I'm moving to florida and may want something for superlight conditions... Depends on spot and wind condition for sure, but if you have no spot, but just shallow water: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSdRFPFpRi8 it i...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi jakemoore, as tomtom says, it will never be an upwind monster, that's why I don't think it will be too interesting in under 10 knts maybe not even with a foil, no matter what peak size. But I will try the next time with my 5 m² how it feels under 10 knts. And as also tomtom said, as for every sin...

Re: Sonic2

Hi Markus, (please use more specific topic headlines, thank you) I am using Sonic 1& 2 since about 3-4 years and no, it is not the right kite for you. Even if it has great depower and I tried it till around 35 knts gusts with 63 kg on foil, as also Evan said: high AR kites are never for top end, as ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi, I also think 8 or 11 m². 8 should be enough, but if you want to learn manouvers bigger is better. But better go for gybes, race style roll tacks are for most more difficult and on a peak extra hard, as it sits to much downwind. If you want to learn roll tacks the easiest way you need a foil like...

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

Hi, nice discussion, to make it short I also agree to better and especially for beginning: @ulx: Put the wing more forward to have a bigger distance between center of lift and center of strut, which means for me more guidance in the yaw axis, which I think is the important point. @Denisesewa: So I a...
