I am going to try infexion’s use of a thin PU tube with a small loop at the trim cleat to manage it - this seems like a good option to keep the line out of the way.
Can you tell me more about this, please? Any photo?
I have the Infexion quick release and I love it.

Re: making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

I have done this but I stitch both ends of the elastic to the Amsteel rope. This is how commercial kite bars are done also. You could do a knot with the main rope and with the elastic inside but it would be bulky and reduce the strength. What's wrong with stitching it takes 2 minutes to do it by ha...

Re: making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

The OP, as I understood it, is trying to make a dyneema bungee for a safety line: a dyneema rope, with spliced loops at each end, and with an elastic inside to take up any slack. :thumb: That is what I am looking for, yes! It seems I will have to sew the bungee in, like the normal way of doing it. ...

making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

I am planning to build a few safety lines for my bars with bungee inside the brided dyneema. The Dyneema will be spliced on both sides, everything must be straight without knots, so it will move smoothly trough bar hole. Is there a way to fix the bungee on both sides without stiching? All ideas are ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Just a little post here to say how much I loved the 8m for snowkiting this season. Pulled me in the lightest breezes with plenty of looping, and it is actually pretty nimble and pleasant to fly, super predictable and precise in its turns and power delivery, easy to launch or reverse launch and neve...

Re: Hydrofoil low end (~7-11knots)

I was debating the Peak but few people who own/ride them persuaded me that regardless how neat and cool it is... 1. It’s not a lightwind kite (even though it flies in barely any wind) 2. Swim-ins suck bad and they happen I tried foiling with 9m Peak last June (before above feedback) and decided tha...

No, the 8 m2 is good, but not in a league of their own like the 5 and smaller.

Never trust the default trim of any kite or bar, the first thing you gotta do is adjust the trim, and most often you have to ride a couple of times till you know the exact perfect trim :D

So true! :thumb:

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

You could just add some short thin extensions to the rear lines on your 8, and everything is perfect with the same bar :thumb: 8) Peter Thanks for the tip, but I allready have seperate bars for all my Peaks. :D My bar for the 8 is loonger (60cm) and with longer lines (about 27 i think...). I am usi...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I also shortened my rear lines a lot on my bar, pretty normal for water use in waves I think. 8) Peter I did this for my peak in size 4 and 5, but on the 8m2 it does not work for me like that. On the 8m2 i still like the back lines a bit longer than the front lines. So, the bar that i use for small...

Re: Foiling kite 8-13kn on a budget

I also have a 8m2 Peak. I bought it after being impressed with the 5 and 4. Yes, it is slow, feels havy and not at all as fun as the smaller Pekas. But it does the job done when there is not enough wind for the 5 to get me out of the water. I found out that it is important to have enough depower tri...
