Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

FYI, a very good rider in France who is on LesFoilZ.com (Marc Blanc, this guy: http://www.lesfoilz.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=159) used to cut peaks and to make smaller ones out of them.

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

Ok, but that seems different design compared to small sizes. Like always with CA kites there is no decent pictures available so difficult to say more.
