Re: Peak 4 11/13 vs Gin Marabou 12m has anyone experienced them both?

Rider #2 at 220 lbs thought the 13m was as fast as the 11m, flew surprisingly well overpowered in about 15-17 knots on 1 test day. On the other test day in around 8 knots felt like it gave him a 2 knot advantage at the bottom over the 11m. [/quote] Could #2 ride in 8kts with the 13m and with what b...

Re: Peak 4 11/13 vs Gin Marabou 12m has anyone experienced them both?

Peak 13M arriving today. Planing on a low wind test for Sunday. Forecast is around 8knots. Setting up Peak 8m, 11m, and 13m along with an Ozone Hyper flex 12M. Have 4 riders with weights from 160 lbs to 245. So the consensus from rider #1 at around 165 lbs who owns the Hyperflex that the Peak 13m w...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I agree with Kitedougiefresh 100 %. I love light wind foiling (this is what we have in Florida all summer). My UL Pulsion 12m is great for that condition, accelerating very well, going upwind excellent…but doing transition in very light wind (7 to 9mph) is difficult and require good timing. Everyth...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I think the lines in the sand have been drawn with tomtom and others on one side and drsurf and myself and others on the other regarding if the big Peaks are "low wind" kites. You can say what you want but i am100KG and coupled with a big SS Infinity wind i was with another member riding comfortably...

Re: Sonic/Soul/Peak - 8 and 6 knots lightwing foiling

Was there Peak from beginning? Peak is of course safe flyer at 6knts but otherwise you know my opinion :) I'm pretty sure if one takes out 18m Sonic it would be rideable in steady 6 knots, but Armin flew the 13m Peak4 in 7 and I'm hoping to hear how low folks could go with an 11m Peak. Jeff Howard ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Another reason against too big Peak its lack of REAL drift. Its not drift with too big kite - its downwind pull rest pull from kites drag. Smaller the kite smaller this rest pull to the point that is virtually nonexistent So while i have this Peak 4 13m on demo from my favorite Kite Shop based out ...
