All interesting, do you have photos or videos riding your DIY kites?
It doesn't confuse me. But I know exactly what you mean. Most people confuse a little bit of slack vs. "100% kite falling out of the sky" slack. Pretty sure most people are not looking for that characteristic quite like we are.foilholio wrote: ↑Fri Apr 19, 2019 2:24 pmI am cautious of them as I like slack line and it seems so many are confused what that means and what true slack line is possible. True slackline is basically no kite is felt in pull and no kite input is really possible with the bar ... amazingly because... the lines are slack.
How much wind was this in? The 6m peak is suited to foil in about 11-14 knots of wind and I have a hard time imagining getting turfed by the peak in those winds.

I personally consider it the safest traction kite available. It's super easy to fly. It has legit instant depower. It generates almost zero lifting force.
The top windrange of a 3m peak4 is around 30 knots, probably not everyday conditions. If you've sized them appropriately for hydrofoil they are safer to launch and land than an inflatable or closed cell foil.windrider1 wrote: ↑Sun Apr 21, 2019 6:23 amHaha safest traction kite available . Try to take a single skin out at the very top of its winrange and U might change your mind . Especially the small ones when depowered they make for a pretty scary ride as they collapse and then open up . Thyre excellent kites within their windrange but beyond thta very unstable
