Horst /Sergio/ is similar weight than you and /absolute/ low end for him and 3m Peak is 12 knts. I can positively comfortable ride 4m from 15knts and 3m from 18knts. /86 kg naked - 90kg in wetsuit/Regis-de-giens wrote: ↑Sun May 10, 2020 11:16 amI asked on the general topic on peak 4 but with non answer yet , so maybe here :
I want to buy and test one question is would better suit 4m or 5m in may case (as a tarter since I understand 3 and 4 and 5 are required ); for memory : 63 kg, 1200cm2 Ketos ; my wave kite for highest winds is CA Wave 3m ;
I was initially on a 5m but looking at some comment , I am now hesitating with a 4m ; I do not look for lowest wind, more in the range of 12-18 knots where rare waves here start to raise. one big criteria would be the comfort wind range and absolute wind range since conditions here maybe a bit gusty
Merci for your advices
moses onda 633. I will go for 4m in your case.
The smaller the Peak the more sensitive is to trim and oversheet in general. But i think you are competent kite flyer and those are things you can use to your advantage.
I also thinks that Peak are not for people who like power. To be really powered on Peak you have really small margin till it start flapping.
I dont know how much power you really want. My biggest kite is 9m and im scared of everything bigger than 12m.
