Re: Old Kite vs New: Naish ARX 2001 vs Naish Boxer 2020

Yeah - not true that these kites have "no" depower. They had a lot of depower ... compared to the two line kites that preceded them. Before 4 lines kites the only way to slow down to stop being overpowered & being ripped downwind was to edge REALLY hard upwind. It was exhausting & somewhat scary. Wi...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Aside from all variables such as weight, wind conditions and foil type, in my experience the 8m Peak4 will take your usable wind range a few knots lower than the 5m Peak4 which can be the critical difference between having a good foiling session or sitting on the shore complaining. When you are con...

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?

Re: What your most used kite size for foiling?

So the 13m or 11m are a better option than the 15m? The forecast was good for today but it ended up being super light. Wouldn’t the 9m with 27m line work better than the 11m or 13m since it weights less and is easier to keep in the air? I don't think it's worth considering the 15m. If the wind is l...

Re: How much more relaxed can it get with a modern foil?

Reading all this makes me anxious to get out on the damn water already! I will be curious to directly compare my 700 cm LP carbon foil & my 1000cm Gong foil back-to-back. I found the LP foil pretty pitchy at first but once dialled in it is wonderfully smooth & "slippery". It requires a real commitme...

Re: beginner foil. Duotone spirit or gong foil

Get the Gong Pro M wing with 40 cm stab and 90 cm mast. Buy a 65 cm mast if you want training wheels. A gong 4-6 board is good, but recommend foothooks for learning. Go out in low teens wind to learn on kites you know. What Tom said, exactly. You might consider getting an 80 cm mast also as they ar...

Re: What your most used kite size for foiling?

Hey guys, Today I purchased my first foil and was wondering what’s your most used kite size for 9-11 knots. I tried using my 15m today but it was kind of hard to keep it in the air. Most of my kites are freestyle C kites (15m rrd obsession, 13m and 11m liquid Force hifix) I also have a 9m liquid fo...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

It would seem, like a lot of other things to do with kitesurfing, the situation is VERY dependent on the local conditions you are dealing with. If you're in a spot with ideal surf conditions then why not simply surf? If your spot has less steep waves, but consistent swells, decent wind & lots of sp...
