Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Curious, how does the 13 handle riding swell down wind in 8 to 10 mph winds? [/quote] I am 100KG and my 8m Peak replaced my larger cloud. I am going to go against the grain and say that being the owner of a Peak 5M, 8M, and 13M that I love them all. For normal size guys, maybe the larger kites are n...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I got a chance to experiment with the low wind potential of my Slingshot INF99 foil with the Peak 4 5m yesterday. Happy to report that it made the 8-10mph seabreeze a lot of fun. I could not have ridden as easily with my INF76. That big foil keeps you going at such a low speed it made the lulls very...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

It just needs to drift when chased for me, I don’t turn the kite much when on a wave, really jut try to make it disappear. Guessing it’s unrealistic for a 13m foil kite to disappear though. Florida wind swell is not typically moving very fast so I don’t think it’s impossible that it drifts well enou...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I’m hoping to take this Peak4 13m through the tests in the next couple days. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCcsyVOgCwo/?igshid=fthr2vtlozq6 Looking forward to your review. Hoping that the 13 has similar depower and drift capabilities to the 5m. Expect its not nearly as drifty in light winds but even ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

For anyone experience with the 3m: in what windrange do you fly the kite? I weigh 185lbs and ride a slingshot inf 76 and gamma68 foil. I drop from my 5m peak to the 3m once the wind is consistently 20+ With the smaller gamma 68 foil it's hard to imagine getting topped out on the 3m. It's like flyin...

Could you post some details of your harness mount?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Finally tried some unhooked wave riding with my 5m this week. I pulled in some additional trim on the trim loop when unhooking, enough to where it would not back stall. It was fun trying something new, having been riding waves hooked in for years. I can see the appeal when riding down wind on the sw...

Re: Step down wing from Slingshot INF76

Update My time code 68 arrived just in time for some good conditions last Friday. I am stoked. For the money I think it was exactly what I was looking for in a step down wing from my inf 76. I never felt out of control with this wing and it was a very easy transition. Conditions were side on with wi...

Re: Step down wing from Slingshot INF76

Wondering if ... this might work for you too. 95$ for Gamma 68/H2/Futura https://www.mackiteboarding.com/2018-ride-engine-futura-front-wing/ Player 2 has entered the game! That was tempting at half the price but interestingly enough the slightly larger H1 is geared more toward larger waves. Where a...

Re: Step down wing from Slingshot INF76

Here is what I was looking from from MAC Kite. It was in reference to the Ride Engine version of the H1 but it looks like it may have been designed to be be what I am looking for. It helps that Slingshot currently has it on Sale. May have to think hard on this one. 2019 Ride Engine Arc 68cm Front Wi...
