Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Sergio, great stuff. It looks like the deep water launch of a Peak4 could be simpler compared to a closed cell? Because there’s no inflation? Also I’m curious if you can water-launch and relaunch a bigger Peak4 size in lower winds. Thanks

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

What’s the bar pressure like for Peak4? I thought it was rather high for Peak1 and Peak2.

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

Its a quick and easy project. Yes its heavier and stiffer than the commercial version, but it is also infinitely cheaper and works just fine. I have one that is ridden tandem and based on that you do not need to worry about whether it will hold up, its strong. My cheapest splitboard cost $99 for a ...

Re: Making launch safer - learning from the experts

Exhibit A: people's opinions on the internet Exhibit B: the number of people who killed themselves launching hooked this year Exhibit C: the number of people who got hurt / caused injury / caused trouble launching unhooked over past several years (zero ?) Hmmmm... let's see... opinions vs. dead peo...

Re: Trouble with kite lines

It's not weird at all. You can see the same setup, or similar, on newer HQ kites.

Re: Kite fatality in Thailand

The issue i have is that i keep loosing the knifes. I'ev tried several over the years and various different mounting methods. They all have been torn off and lost in crashes. I'm interested to know if anyone has found a secure method of holding a knife. Knife insurance: tie your knife to a relative...

Re: 5th line necessary to relaunch from snow/water ?

1. It is unavoidable. You have to pay to play. 2. SUP kiting? After you learn with a twintip yes, maybe, otherwise I much doubt it. 3. Snowkite on cross-country skis? Been there done that, but the downhill skis are 100 times better. 4. Do you at least have a trainer? Your best bet at this point is t...

Re: Launching Foil Kites from deep water (with Sonic2)

Sergio, any comments on water temperature? Have you done these launches in cold water? Also have you explored using a small boat anchor? If installed in advance (by swimming), I imagine that a small boat anchor with a floater would largely eliminate drifting downwind; which could be helpful when the...

Re: Put your name on it! Another lost KBHF!

Cheap visibility enhancer: attach a bottle cap to your board. Screw in the bottle tightly before starting. Have pliers ready at the end, to unscrew the bottle.
