Till now I hadn't the chance to practice more full swimming drift launch to find the perfect setup and I also had another drop without relaunch...
The good news,
this hasn't stopped me to have an awesome session in a samll bay I am sure nobody has ever kited before ...
As the coast in this area has nearly no usable beaches, but more often knife sharp rocks, sea urchins, tangle bushes, ...
I just droped out of an anchored sailing boot and drift launched inbetween those stuff and an incoming sailboat ... to make it a bit more interesting.
But the manouver was always full under control even prepared for the other sailboat to do something stupid... As I maybe described before I had winded up the bar with the depower pulled out by about 25 cm, so kite just very slightly oversheeted. Everything went pretty easy as the no existing waves were, but the wind which was coming down from a 50 m high hill 400 m upwind was not so easy.
But this doesn't affected drift launch and riding the 5 m Peak4. I think riding with my normaly favored sonic2 or any other race kite would have been nearly impossible in this gusty hole. Especially as I was riding on my 200 m short tacks around other anchored sailboats with > 20 m masts.
Just one inattentive large jibe around our sailboat went wrong and as the peak is: black or white, it colapsed completely when in an additonal turbulance the lines gone slack. Even here with one side tangled downn but the other side open I think it would have been still possible to relaunch, but rocks and our sailboat have been close so I decided to end the very nice session heading for dinner, which was also ready.
Hope to get some possiblities in the future to check drift launch with waves. Have done this with my sonic2 in very low wind which worked also but if you also have to go back on board of a boat as there is no coast, a peak is very compfortable.
During session wind was South East, on next picture from West showing the hill from where the wind was coming before:
Maybe come back with a video of the small session and drift launch, don't know how much others have filmed.
