Re: Kite Turn Accelerator by Bruno Legaignoux

Speed is generated by the force that is directed in the kites travelling direction (forward) Lift is generated by the force that is directed 90 degrees from the kites travelling direction (side/up). Thanks. But what I don't understand is how a relatively small variation in the distance between fron...

Re: Kite Turn Accelerator by Bruno Legaignoux

An interesting feature of this double bar is that one can choose the strength of the turn accelerator. If you want as much speed as possible and not much lift, place the front lines at the ends of the upper bar. If you want less speed and more lift, reduce the distance between the front lines. Very...

Re: Good kite for boat

So, Flowbee reelbar will be here in 1-2 weeks (thanks for the tip 4liner). I will practice flying the kite while I wait. I shortened the lines to 14m today to make it easier to focus on other aspects than depowering. While I was at it I also removed 5th line. Allthough I really like that line, it's ...

Hi Verkiter,

We're in the making of a comparison. The Gin we have in 3 sizes and we waiting for the flysurfer Peak V4 and Ozone Oxplore V1
You can find the first Gin 12m review here: http://www.kitefinder.com/en/kites/1774 ... er-reviews
Did you make the comparison?

Re: Good kite for boat

Maybe Cory Roeseler might have a few still kicking around from his Kite Ski days in the early 1990's. Suspect he's still living in the Columbia River Gorge, somebody on this forum might know how to get hold of him, or try on the Pacific Northwest kite forum - http://nwkite.com/forums/f-1.html Thank...

Peak4 vs Shaman2?

Has anyone compared the peak4 with Shaman2? To my noob eyes they look very similar. Are they?

Re: Good kite for boat

So, I got my Peak4 a week ago, and have played with it a little. I really like it! :) Now I'm concerned with launch/retrieval. As I understand it there were some four line reel bars around in the old days. Looks like they were not popular amongst the kitesurfers, but could be good on a boat. Does an...

Re: Good kite for boat

I would start with 16m to 20m lines for first trials. the peak4 comes with 14m + 7m lines, so I'll just start with 14m then. Again and unlike standard sailing, I advise you to turn downwind (gibes) rather than upwind (tack) to avoid boat backward risk , thus having kite pull in your normal forward ...

Re: Good kite for boat

For sailing the biggest difference for longer lines will be to reach better wind. Reaching better wind meaning reaching higher? So in order to reach better wind without losing the gains because of changed L/D ratio the lines would have to be very much longer? For kiteboarding, the longer flight thr...
