Re: Kitefoil, double skin - single skin Peak/FireFly?

Hi Peter, I have the same specs (wight and wing) and I guess my lowend is at ~9 knots with the p4 - 8m. I fly most of the time with 18m lines. I'm considering a closed cell for twintip action. I hardly touched it the last 2 years, but when the conditions are right I would like to go out boosting fr...

Re: Gong Veloce impressions

Thanks Flyboy and Tom for your reply. How is the difference between veloce m and curve m regarding slow speeds and the bottem end of the range, do they drop at similar speeds? I'm hesitant towards the veloce, due to the fact that gong recommands it for people under 75 kg (I have ~80kg). Low end is a...

Re: Gong Veloce impressions

Can someone share some thoughts about the Curve Pro M vs the Curve Pro MT vs the Veloce M ? I'm undecided between Curve M and Veloce, and from the descirption on the gong page, the MT sounds like an inbetween. I have a dwarfcraft micro 3,6 does the 100cm CF " monoblok" mast fit to this board ? Thank...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I also have this wingtip issue, but only on my 13m in the upperwind range, the smaller peaks don't show this behavior. Some fella said the reason could be the v-bar as the peak is meant to be flwon with high Y. But I couldn't test with another bar to prove this thesis.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

So yesterday was one of those rare summer storms. It was starting easy with 12-18 kn and I was in dreamland with my 5m. But then from one minute to the other, hell broke loose. Gladly I was cruising near shore to get my 5m down quick. Wind was reaching 30-35 knots. I then rigged my 4m and gave it a ...

Re: hyperlink 2, 9 or 11 m2

I use peak 4,5,8m for foiling, which are great btw :) The 8m is going from aproxx. 8-9 knots with a big wing 1200cm. But I can't boost with the peaks on a tt and therefore I'm looking for a closed cell foil for that discipline. But I don't know which size would be my best choice given my existing pe...
