Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

That's the whole lot, and I've read that the preferred / recommended ring is a 5mm thick one, whereas the connecting ring in this kit is just 4mm.

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

That's a very good reason. You could maybe offer the rings on your website alongside the QRs?

Re: Do Peak4 kites work with waveboards?

I've used the 8m once with my surfboard, thought that'd be easier to finish the session like that than packing and launching the 5m. It was probably a good 16-18kts, and foiling was getting too much. On a surfboard, it felt actually very good riding the waves downwind, kite happily following downwin...

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

Nice one, but wouldn't it be wise to include the right ring with the QR? Extra cost for you is minimal, and that would prevent people from using an incorrect size, or a poor quality one found at a hardware store.

8m still does the job very well for me in light winds. Not extreme light winds possibly, but in the 8-12kts range, it just works.
Your weight and foil board and wing please?

I have the 5m and am considering the 8m.

Re: Flysurfer Peak4 in 5 m2, truly stoked

Nice review Peter. It seems that for you 10 knots was sufficient to use the 5m. The question remains: is it worth it to have a 8m, given that some people seem to think that the performance of the Peak4 is less impressive (relatively) in the larger sizes? The 5m is a good size to start with. I held ...

Do you guys us a trim strap much with the peak4 ?
Barely!
And it's mostly for precisely adjusting the backstall potential when in the lower part of the windrange. And it's about 1-2cm of adjustment, if at all.

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

Not too sure of the reason in Fuerte, I assume they follow Spain's guidance. I've seen official recommendations from various sports governing bodies in France (FFVL for kiting) asking to avoid any unnecessary activity that could result in an injury. The idea being that the hospital beds are, or are ...

Re: Revisiting the "how low can you go" (light wind) discussion, but with actual data.

Anything related to riding on a river is gonna be tainted with whatever flow you have. I believe it's not uncommon to have +/- 2kts once you take current into account. So no point being too picky about actual data.

Re: foiling is surfing

Take a snow covered frozen lake, and a snowboard. A kite or a wing will allow you to carve turns on there, and emulate more or less the ride you'd get if you were on a real slope. Harnessing the wind allows us to snowboard on flat surfaces, or be flat water surfers. Let's embrace that and keep the s...
