Re: Peak 4 11/13 vs Gin Marabou 12m has anyone experienced them both?

Hey derek440 , that is amazing that you were able to get that set up to work at 100kg with 13m lines . I'm using 30m race lines and i'm out with all the guys on their lightest wind setups , and when the wind dies and they swim in I just body drag in .

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Peaks don't work on TT as they don't go upwind well .

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

The type of kite does make a difference , use a wave kite or a PEAK 4 in 12kts of wind and learn to go hard off the wind , this is where the wave kite helps , now you are half way there . Next down loop your kite and follow it around. Easy . Now ride down wind toe side and do a down loop again and f...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I've been able to tether my 4.5 wave like you would with a LEI and have it sit on it's wing tip long enough for me to get to it .

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

No don't try winding the lines on the bar , just start pulling in the 2 front lines and adjust as needed to keep it straight . You guys that are crashing your peaks need to try long lines .I have 40 days on my 5m and never near the water and I loop my kite a lot and during every gibe . The 5m is fas...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

So ive missed a few good days lately as my 5m is to big , Ive used the 5m from 10-22 kts and find the sweet spot to be 12-16 . I'm 70 kg and ride a 120 groove skate with a 150 lift . Can I jump straight to the 3m ? Does the 3m have overlap with the 5m or will I wish I bought the 4m ?

Re: Moses T38 or Groove skate Large for improver?
