Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

It is possible to sidelaunch a peak like a closed foil kite. Fold the tip, put sandbag on it, hold leeward backline so kite does not flip while tensioning lines. While the tip goes up it wiggles around, which makes it look like its not working so the nice people at my spot come to help. This is the ...

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

Re: Ultimate foil for surf skate like quick carves?

+1 for zeeko spitfire xlw. It should be mentioned how easy spitfire dives back in after surfacing, no falling from sucking air down.

Re: couple of peak 4 questions

Peak4 4m and 3m turn my 800 scm foil into a bmx bike. So many little jumps and carves, i love it. Peak seems to fly most forward at a point between flapping and oversheeting. When it starts flapping it is already moving back into the window.

Re: Best seat harness for foiling?

Re: Best seat harness for foiling?

Have only had the sequoia in freshwater and snow, so don’t know about saltwater yet. Freshwater does not seem to do it harm. The weaver denali looks like it is made with leather, which could be a problem for water use. Petzl makes make very nice connector rings and strap parts which are not necessar...
