Me too. When I owned the Peak4 line, I also had sizes up to 11 sq/m. At Peak5, I already bought only up to 6 sq/m.
Agree, 8m Peak is as big as I like to use on the hydrofoil. I did get a used 13m Peak and rode it a few times on 30m lines but it gets overpowered quickly and the upwind angle is not very good. Or, a lull of a knot or 2 and you can’t get started again, it turns slow. I have used it several times with skis (what it was designed for) and it works great for low winds. A 13-15m race twin skin kite on long lines works better with the hydrofoil for absolute low wind speed.alekbelia wrote: ↑Sat Dec 23, 2023 1:17 pmMe too.

I've had success flying a 9 sq/m singleskin kite in 3 m/s but with a 1700 sq/cm foil and a 36 liter board (tooo slooow ). In such wind I prefer to ride racing gear.
