My feeling exactly! I don't use a flag or safety system at all, if I can't handle the situation the kite is expendable and I get rid of it ( never had to yet). At least I know what I have and don't have to rely on something *maybe working*.foilholio wrote: ↑Wed Feb 27, 2019 10:59 pmInteresting I have always felt FLS to be wingspan +. Overall given the infrequent use of a safety, plus complication of a stopper and added risk in tangles it is not worth using one. I feel when a safety is used it should have the greatest chance of working. When I release a kite I often release the whole thing, given waves etc anyway.
Yea, Unfortunately there was rare period of low wind on fuerte so i just rode 2 times on 5m - and quite underpowered.
A few sessions. On my main surfboard I am unable to stay upwind with the Peak 4. Even once I am feeling overpowered I can work and work and feel like I am beating upwind but I always come back to the same spot on the beach. Riding just one wave requires me to walk upwind. Riding downwind into the peak and also sheeting in to get some power is wonderful, but the upwind not so much. My surfboard is a big floater but is not a super upwind board - too big for me to ride very fast
