4m peak4 or 6m soul?
I am 82 kg with a 1000 cm2 wing. A comfortable low end for me with the 6m Peak4 is around 10 knots. Could probably go down to about 9 knots. At your weight & larger wing you might be able to squeeze another knot at the low end. Note that this is my estimate of the wind strength based on 40 years of wind sports participation - I don't have accurate on site measurements of the wind & it's hard to know exactly what the wind is, especially lighter wind.
Thanks a lot for your experience, really appreciate it. There are not waves where I live, but I am really seduce by the playfull hability of Peak4. I foil only for fun, not race, and not to jump with foil (yes with TT). Could you say Peak4 can give me more fun than Soul 6m?Janus wrote: ↑Sat Jun 19, 2021 6:39 pmThis is just a matter of taste.. and what you write isn’t true completely..Adventure Logs wrote: ↑Wed Jun 16, 2021 6:50 pmUnless you are foiling only in surf, the Soul 6m will be more fun. Plus you can use the Soul in higher winds on twintip which is extremely fun as well. The Soul will relaunch better, be more playful, have a larger range, is more versatile, drift almost as well as the Peak, and is just more fun.
Owning the Peak4, in 3,4 & 5 m and owning the Soul 6m makes me know what I’m talking off..
There is just no comparison for the drift of the Peak in the smaller sizes with the Soul.. the Soul can’t tip the Peak in drift.. and isn’t as playful as the Peaks.
Today I had another 4m session with wind waves.. riding the waves downwind with no input to the kite and no hand on the bar.. in complete silence.. can’t do that with the Soul 6m. (Wind 15-20 kts)
I love the Soul 6m, shorter lines makes it shine (like I fly my Peaks too) and yess it has a bigger range and is way better relaunchable.
I think the topic starter is indeed better of with a 6m Soul but for TT I miss the 8m between my 10 & 6m Soul.

And for 11 to 15 knots with 679 or 633 Moses wing (72 kg) Should I buy 5 or 6 M Peak?
Thanks a lot.
