Re: hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

True that any release can open. That's the reason they are used. But if I would get some accidential releases I would loose trust in my gear and just move on. The probability that the wichard opens accidentialy is very high. IMO it's just a outdated heavy design that was not designed for kitesurfin...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I do a mixture of hot launch and side launch from the edge of the window.
For landing, I just crash it face down from about 5m and loose the tension (I don't grab any lines). The landing crash is best in grass or a bit of shadow in the beach but not essential. You can also do it on water (of course).

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

definitely... but just one more idea: I ply it in arms length from one tip to the other (grabbing the leading edge as I go) I do it both wet and dry.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I have been packing it this way: roll the lines in the bar (as normal) untill I get to the conections of the lines of the bar and the lines of the kite. Then roll the lines of the kite arround the kite "ball". Sounds like I don't know the coorect way... but this might be the best way.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

[/quote] P.S. Was at a remote cottage for a week and had the opportunity to practice deep water swim drift launching the Peak 5m a few times. Didn't always get it right the first try, but mostly due to lack of wind. Had a couple of swimming resets, but eventually got foiling every time. Once up, it ...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jf3MtnJ_oyQ Real good... Since I have hopes to learn some of that, isn’t the stance with feet too far apart? Would it be easier or more difficult to learn with feet closer together? If you look at ballet dancing (or diving) it is always nicer if feet are together jaja...

Re: Turbulence while riding

"While riding at my local spot there is typical 1-2 ft chop and avg wind is 15 knots. I am unsure if it's normal, but while cruising the ride is not smooth, I feel small jerks in yaw and roll bit not pitch. This happens anywhere in the 10-25 mph range. I would add that this is intermittent and the r...

peak4 3m

For me, the 5m and my foil is a one kite quiver (&board). I can go from 10 to 25 knots. It is so much more reliable than a lei since it doesn't fall in light winds and I can relaunch anywhere in our sandy beach coast line for long down-winds (no pump or punctured bladders jaja). If I have to say som...
