Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I can't imagine dropping the kite due to how light the wind is should be much of a factor with the smaller Peaks? If you're flying a 5m, 4m or 3m you're surely going out in enough wind to keep the kite flying. As I see it, the biggest plus would be improving the performance of the bigger Peaks so t...

Re: Flysurfer Peak4 sinking or floating and packdown.

just try it - sit on board. I have 90x40x15mm and it is doable. Its more about controlling your board than sitting

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

You must scare them off. I always do. I tell them on shore that little beast is very hungry and want to eat they kites.

Re: Self launch and self land option

Just do normal "no tool" self L/L methods. Flagout is always your last resort. It will be much safer in long run - than depend on this device :)
