Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2020

There's a reason why inflatable kite users always ask about relaunch. People expect LEIs to front stall in strong gusty wind, front stall in shore dump with the LEI ripped in half, back stall when you're traveling fast downwind on hf, and stall from the side of the wind window. And then there's ligh...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2020

In 2020, a few people will use the peak 4 on hydrofoil, and they'll wonder why they ever put up with their sluggish heavy inflatable.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Really someone foiling above 40 knots ?? Would be nice to see video :) only maybe in the lake but definitely not in sea:) My favourite days on the foil are lumpy ocean with 30+ knots. You don't get beat up from the chop like on a displacement board, and it's like flying over a wild ocean pump track...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Armin, any chance you could make a 2m peak?
Great session today, gusting over 40 knots on the 3m, but less powered would be much more manageable.

Adds weight and complexity. Just make simple, inexpensive SS kites. The market needs very small sizes (less than 3 meters)
1+ about smaller than 3m
Agreed

So roughly equivalent to a 7-8m LEI ?
Yep, it's like having a 8m LEI that doesn't backstall in the lulls.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

The peak 8m works fine on 8-12 knot days. Floats in the lulls way better than my soul 10m, turns faster, and drifts downwind better. It's way cheaper than the soul. Quicker to launch and land. Doesn't go upwind anything like a soul. Much more likely I can drag back to shore on the peak if the wind d...

Re: Market for Hydrofoil Wave Foil kites < 4 m²

Riding wind swell with the peak 3m is my favorite pastime, definitely the most fun size of peak. I'd like a smaller size, it gets a bit powered up in 35+ knots.

Re: Ram airs crash in 2019

I carried a burst inflatable back to shore for someone today. It had crashed, and the rider was stranded. Big heavy thing it was. Inflatables continue to fall out of the sky and crash in 2019.

Re: Reasonably Minimalistic Bar For Foiling

I'm using cabrinha bars with the chicken loop and depower removed, replaced by a BRM style setup. Great for foiling. Minimal.
