Thanks to everyone in this thread. The Peak4 heightened my interest after reading all of the comments, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I rode in 18-35mph winds this weekend and did a review.

He's from Oklahoma. He's doing the best he can. Check out okie-noodling. The first movie was so good, they made a sequel!



Keep up the good work OKkiteboarder.

I love my Peaks...I own an entire quiver. I made a short video of my first sessions with the 4,5, 8 and 11. Soon I'll share It. Awesone kite for freeriding hydrofoil even in ultra marginal wind conditions (with a high lift foil..).

Cheers

Carlo

Too much face and not enough video of the product you're reviewing...!

Thanks for that heads up, definitely a typo. Should've been 0 stars. Thanks again. Y'tu TomTom? Say it ain't so......

You're a very attractive man and I may touch myself later, but sitting through 8 minutes of video to get a few seconds' glimpse of the product is half a review and a waste of bandwidth on video.

Flip it -- have 7 and a half minutes of video of the product doing it's thing. That'll make a better video :thumb:

Its old /by the time doing it but young by body and soul/ kiteboarder joking with another kiteboarder about instagram. Its OK for you OK kiteboarder? Now no jokes :)
And no i have no INSTA :) unfortunately not much prospect followers :(

Jokes aside - i really can see huge amount of work behind your movies - but what these guys want to say is constructive and you should listen to them.

sorry for nonnative english.

And btw about Peaks - if it was really 18-35mph - than it was WAAAAAY too much for what are Peaks good for. Im almost 180lbs moses onda 633 and 20 knts /ca. mph/ are my top comfortable limit /for 4/.
Peaks have very good absolute range but optimum trim range is quite small and more imporantly on they relative low end - till they start flapping. Because as soon as you depower them so they start flapping L/D goes down very steep. This mean bad upwind and more importantly depowered kite that sits very deep in WW and pull downwind - so no more Peaks biggest show off - kiteless downwind.
So IMO 18-35 is defi 3m Peak territory /35 is maybe too much/

Fly them little longer - buy all 3 smaller 5,4,3 - they are cheap as chips. Make light carbon bar for them to feel them and then you will see! But i think you already saw potential. Cheers!
