Not questioning the stoke, should be great!tomtom wrote: ↑Thu Sep 05, 2019 6:05 pmyou all miss dynamic changing place where kite pull you. This give you additional freedom = stoke. I dont tried it with peaks but i tried it with other kites in past.
About peak drift vs AOA. I never noticed that changing AOA change peak drift radicaly.
There is no AOA on Peak which make him sit too forward in WW that was what i mean. And i dont know if you noticed this too but drifting peaks newer flap.
Technicaly in real drift situation you are not even suppose to be able to change AOA.
Regarding drifting peaks never flap, well maybe your wind/swell direction and lines drawn are such that you never needed it then. But peaks (and clouds) have this impressive feature, let them flap as needed and be able to go DTL much more aggressively.
When you set your kite's initial angle of incidence and start going DTL it's still not a "technically real" drift situation yet, it can then become afterwards depending on how deep you go, but in the real world (and a kite that is hard to water-relauch in flat water, let alone waves) I would say a theoretical 100% drifting situation (no residual line tension whatsoever) is not something to be actively pursued very often.
