just a short addendum re: the Flysurfer Peaks...

man, are these kites powerful!!! Kiting today in good grippy windpack 20-25 kts, super lit with 6m. A few days ago riding 6m super lit in 12-24" of dense pow with 20-25 kts....outpacing 10m and 12m LEI's upwind... a dream going downwind, nice steady predictable pull

super well-behaved in self-landing/launching...no tendency to tangle or get wierd

I am hoping they will make a 4m!

the only minor problem: I can't mount my camera in the kite like an LEI (and I'm not keen on line mounts)

Best purchase in my kitesurfing career was in 2013...
A downhill longboard skateboard for carving the pavement during no wind days!
Helped me maintain my sanity during the infamous 2013 summer.
