From your point of view , would you think that the Marabou as a SS will behave the same way as the Peak does other than be better with relaunchable ?Horst Sergio wrote: ↑Mon Apr 22, 2019 8:53 amWhile being happy with the great response here on the kite,
it is important to also respect the limits of the construction, these are in my eyes:
- if the relative wind drops under 2 knts while you overtake the kite in lowest winds on a wave under 10 knt of wind it may colapse imediately on the wind window, with low chance to relaunch directly after.
- if you try to use the kite under high load application as medium to heavy twin tip riding, it will shake a lot and can colapse when depowered,
- if you take single skin kite sizes as normal LEI 1:1 and use for example an 8 m² in over 25 knts, than it may start to be dangerous as every kite that is abused.
Always keep in mind that the kite was designed for low to medium power application on snow, which is similar to foil wave kiting, maybe also big surfboards and designed to allways stay in the air, but never lift in its normal range. Then you can see why it is also great for foil surfing above 10 knts.
They work with a standard 4 line bar, and they fly with low or high v, equal length lines, with larks head onto all 4 bridle attachment points. Lines should be tuned well, peaks are sensitive to bar pressure.Strekke wrote: ↑Mon Apr 22, 2019 7:48 amGetting intrigued about this thread, since I am looking for a kite for wave foiling that actually stays in the air with minimum wind while riding towards it on a wave. What size would one need to comfortably ride sub 10 knots (minimum 7 knots) on a 1300cm² low AR surf wing, pocket board, 75 kgs? And do these Peaks work on any bar (not taking into account the safety system)?
