Re: FS Unity 10 bridle adjustments.

hi Flyfish, I tried to use the kite on a twintip to see the top end, and was unpleasantly surprised. It had a habit of "clapping wingtips" when a gust came through! It seemed that the leading edge was deforming without enough internal pressure, causing the airflow at the tips to alter and push the t...

Re: Maneuverable Seat Harness

You can easily make up a sliding spreader bar by cutting off the hook from a spreader like the tunafish above has and making up a length of Dyneema with a Brumel Spliced loop on either end. Cheap, easy, lighter than the original and lasts a long time.

Re: FS Unity 10 bridle adjustments.

Thanks Flyfish, I cant download the manual from FS as the file doesn't want to open in Adobe for some reason or other. What do you mean by the Hard/soft steering lines; are you referring to WAC? lines? as i don't think mine has any, just the standard mixer that i am used to from other FS kites. I wi...

FS Unity 10 bridle adjustments.

Hi, I have bought a FS Unity 10 Deluxe in pretty good condition for very little money. I have used it 3 times with a hydrofoil now and feel that it may not be the complete dog of a design that some people have alluded to; its certainly nothing like the Sonics that i also have! It produces very littl...

Re: Kitesurf holiday with kids club/ childcare?

We went to Lefkada a few years ago with a 3 yr old. Flights into Preveza from Gatwick and a 20 min drive to the hotel. Great kiting and cheap boat hire for a day off. I still look back 3 years later and think it was the best, uncrowded spot for a kids and kites holiday. https://www.simpsontravel.com...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Question for Peak 4 for users. Favorite self landing method? Thanks I only have the 8m, so this is for winds 8-14 kts. I find i can bring it down on the edge of the wind window, grab an arms length of the lower front line, give it a good hard pull and run towards the kite. It collapses instantly th...

Re: Hayling Island launch?

Turn Left at the roundabout by Funland amusement park. The free beach is the first carpark on your right. You should park the West corner of the carpark and launch to the west of the carpark on the beach. Lots of folk use the signpost on the beach to self launch and land, so keep that area clear. Ke...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

This is just my findings with the kite, I am gybing on the foil and rarely drop a kite, but in sub 10kts i always struggled with relaunch of my Solo 12m. So i have had 3 sessions on the Peak4 8m now. I bought it to use for snowkiting and hoped that it would work well to replace my LiquidForce Solo V...

Re: The Hydrofoil Air Jibe w/Foot Stance Change & Downloop

The move that got me from 75% to over 95% on my gybes was to perform the downloop one handed. As soon as you have switched feet, remove your back hand from the bar and start the downloop with your front hand. You can now use your backhand to help you balance through the healside carve of the gybe. P...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I am looking to replace a Liquid Force Solo V1 12m that i have been foiling with for a few years now. I am interested in the Peak 4 after reading this forum. I would be using it for snowkiting in the Alps and for foiling in 9-13 kts. I weigh 95kg have a Moses Onda and am working on flying tacks;.......
