Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

@ Tom, For me, in light winds the relaunch is not an issue if the kite stays well in the air. I don't drop it.

@ Horst, what do you mean with "glide ratio", please?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Horst, very interesting news, thanks!

May I ask why don't you try the 11m Peak 4, please? That could be the ultimate big wing marginal wind kite perhaps?
