Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Shortening of steering lines. I have heard that some find that the Peak 4 performs better with shortened steering lines. Is this just for light wind? By how much? I suppose that it makes sense that it would depend on the size og the kite. And what overall line lenght do you guys use per size? Perso...

Re: How to sit on the board during relaunch

Agree with above - you are most likely not a surfer, so you havent learned to balance relaxed sitting on a small board in waves. Find the center, and over time you will learn how to :thumb: Also, when there is pull from the kite when relaunching, you simply lean back a bit, so both your wing and boa...

GoPro Max - finally windows software available, great!

I know the Max cam has been discussed in the GoPro Hero 9 thread, but would make a thread of its own. Have had the Max for some time now, the camera itself is amazing, but the lack of software and the fact that you have to use hours and hours for converting even short clips (and on a extreme powerfu...

Re: Cracking Valves - Am I doing something wrong?

Agree, it seems like a bad batch, you are not doing anything wrong, and they should last way longer, probably the kites full lifetime :D

Re: Kite sugestions for foiling in 15 knots

Peak 4 is a wave kite, and not very good for much else, except of course, alpine skiing. I’d guess you could probably drop from your soul 12 down to a soul 8. Disagree. Yes it is personal what you prefer - some come from high performance racekites, and of course prefer to ride with these types no m...

Re: Winging upwind...

Board size doesn't matter at all.

The only reason you think so, is because when you switch down to a smaller board, time has passed and you are a better rider now, maybe also, without knowing, being more selective with the conditions you choose :rollgrin:

Re: Winging upwind...

Time!!! That's all there is to it, no big secrets. When new and you can foil comfortably, you most often can not go upwind well. But it will come over time. You can either ride slow and pinch upwind, or you can ride faster just a tad lower angle - both will get you upwind quite fast, eventhough two ...

Re: Naish 50-55 bar on 7m kite?

Depends on your style. On surfboards a long bar works perfect on 5-6-7 m2 kites. For hydrofoil also. If you are easily scared when riding, a shorter bar is better, and if you ride freestyle with handle passes, most prefer a shorter bar. Also personal preference apart from above, so you won't go tota...
