You will be increasingly amazed to more you use the Peak (this is my experience, at least).Floating around wrote: ↑Wed Jun 02, 2021 6:47 pm...Well I had read allot but not all of this massive thread and as a result bought a 6M. tried it in marginal conditions a couple of times and didn’t like it..... no power. gave it another go today. TT’s were on 11 to 14 m kites.
Absolutely amazing, I was fully powered even a little overpowered at times. Super easy and low stress kite. Think the reason I didn’t like it before was because I was choking it, it needs to be free to get some speed up and not hauling on the bar. Guess I will have to get a 4m to compliment it now.
It takes a while to fully understand its properties. And the magic moment comes when you´ve been out with the Peak couple of times without using a LEI inbetween. When you then take one of your LEI again, you will know HOW superb the Peak REALLY is.
BTW, will also get me a 4m² to extend my Peak-range from my 5 m².
Had a session in 17-23 kts with my Core Section1 5 m² in hip-hig swell and even in this quite strong wind the kite (Core Section) almost fell out of the sky sometimes when I surfed the waves in wind direction. This would have been absolutely no issue with the 4 m Peak, I guess.
