Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I think It comes back to what people have been saying all along: while the Peaks will work in the larger sizes, they start to lose the qualities that make them special. I would suggest for a rider over 200 lb it might make more sense to get something like a 10-12m Soul for foiling in 10 knots & a 5m...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Have you or anyone else in the group tried going to a larger volume board to get going in even more marginal conditions? I am 100KG and use a board that is 32L. I was curious to see if I went to say 50-60L or more if that would help on the water start I have all sizes/volumes of boards. A really bi...

I have tried a few kites for the absolute low end. Cloud, trip, chrono in 12m. Now 13m peak. I'm still not convinced, I'm hoping to try 10m Nova Ultralight for the role next.
Have you considered the Pulsion 18M? That is what i am on now after selling my 13M Peak.

Re: Pulsion 18m

Regis,

Thanks for the advice. You are right, I have to change my thinking after flying Peaks.

I always hot launch my Peaks. What is your recommend launch method for the Pulsion?

Re: Pulsion 18m

Pulsions are sensitive to impacts on the ground... ;-( I was hoping you could elaborate on that statement. I was thinking the Pirouette might have torn the attachment points away on the trailing edge, but now I am wondering if it may have happened when she crashed? So do I need to change my thinkin...

Re: Pulsion 18m

Can anyone give me any information/feedback on the bar that concept air sells for the Pulsion 18M? It came with the Pulsion 18M that I purchased yesterday from the original owner. The bar and kite both looked brand new, but a line snapped on the bar 10 minutes into using it during a small boost. The...

Re: Pulsion 18m

So, I am sure eventually something will tear or break on the 18M. How is the service for these kites? They appear to be a small company, which if they are like Board riding Maui, who I rode exclusively for 4 years, was great. Greg @ BRM was very attentive at answering emails and getting parts shippe...

Re: Pulsion 18m

I know an UL kite higher span/AR faster profile same size can start a tad earlier, but the Pulsion is super easy and stable and turns okay, compared, no overflying or bow tie tricks or anything, like it a lot. Thanks for the information Peter. So is it your opinion, other than the type of kite you ...

Re: Pulsion 18m

Yes Pulsion 18 has a very good lift and hang time, better than the 15 m and 12m; more speed as well ; overall a better L/D ratio, and far better than the peak; it also relaunches in about 5 knots if it falls properly in the water ; In very light wind, I also preferably loop in the direction I want ...
