Hi all

I'm looking forward to put my hands on Ninox... but maybe I share the concern that it should be a bit bigger maybe 13 to 15 m.
I'm 90Kg and I don't hydrofoil, so maybe I need a bit more power to push me.

By the way, has anyone tryed the GIN Shaman or the Flysurfer Peak 3? they look awesome single-skin kites.

Reviews? We have the Flysurfer Peak 3 in our kite school for power/depower land kiting and shallow water bodydragging.
The 12m is a low wind record breaker! (with foil, crash it means swimming!)

Just single skin:

Shaman wingtips seem to have triangular cells, but I can't find clear pictures of it. However I'm not 100% sure if wingtips need closed cells. Flapping wingtips have been a problem mostly for FS Peaks.

Single skins are interesting kites. I'm working on one at the moment, it is possible I'll make it a hybrid.

With the PG harness , you get to use weight-shift in your turns ; how
did that improve the turning ability on your Speed-3, 21m when coupled
with pulling on the breaks ?

I already know the answer , because a use a similar system
on a small 60-cell PG with my land-buggy ; but maybe you could
describe how it works to the guy's here, that never seen such please
and how much better it turns ?

Your Speed-3, was not designed to use weight shift ; my PG was, so
i knew what to expect.

@ kitexpert
Will be Fun and interesting, to see your work when done !! - :thumb:

Nice video! Thanks for all the reviews!!!

This kite design really intrigues me. Could you please comment on a few questions about this kite? How well does the Peak 3 generate power when worked? I read a review that said it deformed when pushed hard. Any power in loops? How's the speed compared to a 12m Switchblade? I believe you're familiar with Switchblades, or any other tube size? How's the top end? Can it go 25mph if the wind picks up? I'm debating on trying this kite with a foil for ultra-light days where I can't keep a R1 or a Zero 18 in the air. I understand relaunch is pretty much impossible but for the days I'm thinking of using it, I can't relaunch anything anyway. :lol:

Sorry Bille, I am not the rider but the videographer.

Youtube account flyingcloclo is the french guy with parakite. But at his videos I see that he uses different harness. I saw pg harness on my local mountain..

Here is the french guys web site about parakite. Maybe it tells you better how it works.
