Two more impressions to share from chapter "bathing with peak4"
First, don't be stupid like me and try to use your Peak2 bag as a harness. Even if it is its origninal manufacturers purpose (on snow with a back protector
) and even if you have pimped it with a better climbing harness, especially if you not use seat straps, it works, yes.
But it is just not compfortable for more than 10 minutes. ... appart from that it may fill up with water if you don't cut a hole in it ...
As shown before, relaunch especially if dropped on the nose is possible down to quite low wind, similar to a normal foil kite, just important to always and imediately when falling, keep line tension.
For drift launch it realy seams that 10 knts is the most important factore what you need and as said don't oversheet to much when preparing winding up, but try something like full power all lines equal +/- 10 cm set it by own preference, if winding up to much depowered it may start if you mount it on terrain (for me I never don't know on what place I start next time so I always try to have a setting well for both: land and water drift start)
if you wind up to much oversheeted this will worsen lower wind limit for water drift launch.
Thanks, but realy not to impressive at all, just try it yourself in 12-16 knts with the named methode first in the shallow until you feel save, then in the deep water sitting on a floating board
