How to Snowkite
Volume One, Instructional Snowkiting DVD
by Morten Gjerstad
Who better to make a great new (and sorely needed) snowkiting instructional video than the maker of the amazing snowkite DVDs like Entropy and Something Stronger - Morten Gjerstad. He is not only an accomplished filmmaker (using all high-definition footage) but also has access to the top riders in the world who are on the cutting edge of what is happening in snowkiting.
This is 2 hours of the most thorough introduction to snowkiting you can imagine. There are chapters on terminology, equipment, location and conditions, kite flying basics, using foil kites, using tube kites (each kite chapter includes information on setup, safety systems, launching and landing, relaunching, and even packing), riding basics (like edging, turning, and going upwind), back country riding, expedition kiting, kite repair, and basic jumping. This is definitely the complete course to becoming a safe and confident snowkiter. When volume 2 is released it will take off from the basic jump and go into all the trick types of jumps and many other specialized advanced snowkiting skills.

Best grip, robust security, high-quality lines, endless rotations and multiple possibilites for individual adjustments. The Flysurfer Infinity 3.0 Airstyle Bar is the control option from Flysurfer for everyone – from beginners to pros. The Flysurfer Infinity 3.0 Airstyle Bar is streamlined, simple, and at the same time impressive in terms of functionality. Anyone who likes big air or who occasionally kites in overpowered conditions should get their hands on the INFINITY 3.0 Airstyle BAR.
The Flysurfer Infinity 3.0 Airstyle Bar delivers pure enjoyment in every jump. With the best grip, reliable safety function, high quality lines, endless rotations and several ways to customize the Bar setup; it fully satisfies the needs of Freeriders, Airstylers and fans of Big Air. The Quick Release 3.0 was certificated with the french standard (AFNOR) and is therefore a quality and safety feature of the INFINITY 3.0 Airstyle BAR.
The Pull-Pull Adjuster makes presetting the depower possible with one handle. The integrated swivel function untwists the lines smoothly and flawlessly — even after many rotations — by simply powering up the Bar. In addition, the Bar width and the steering lines can be adjusted and optimized to meet the needs of the rider.
Quick Release 3.0
The Quick Release 3.0 (QR 3.0) is the core of the bar. It not only meets the French standard (AFNOR) in terms of safety and trigger forces, it is also extremely robust, compact, lightweight and of course reliable. A flexible, unbreakable Chicken Dick and a new ergonomic handle allow a quick and easy release of the kite in an emergency situation.
The smooth, integrated swivel function of the Quick Release 3.0 provides an automatic untwisting of the flying lines when powering up the bar. The safety system remains fully functional even after numerous rotations in one direction.
Ergonomic Grip Design
The slim, lightweight Control Bar features a fresh-green signal color on the right-hand side and is available in two lengths – 50 and 60cm. The abrasion-resistant, ergonomic EVA grip is extremely comfortable for the hand and assures solid control even in cold or wet conditions.
The optimized and reduced-friction Double-V-Shaped Eylet ensures an easy and direct steering response. The powering up and depower functions work even when when you turn the Bar.
| Pull-Pull Adjuster
The Pull-Pull Adjuster allows for the adjustment of the ratio of the lines (front to control lines) with a short handle, even when the kite in the air. This allows the user to regulate the depower function optimally and quickly. Below the Adjuster is a simple sliding stopper ball. We recommend the use of the stopper ball to advanced riders and ambitious airstylers when kiting in constant winds.
At the integrated Winder you can change the bar width by up to 5 cm, which is recommended when using a bar for many kite sizes. Additionally, the control lines can be adjusted below the floaters, meaning you can counteract the effects of shortened steering lines and tendency to backstall. These features allow the bar setup to be individually adjusted to the rider.
Low Drag Flying Lines
The low-drag flying lines (length: 21m) have an impressively-low air resistance (diameter: 1.45mm Front / Back 1,2mm) and a very high breaking load (300kg Front / Back 200kg). For years we have put our trust in our parter LIROS for supplying high-quality lines. The 60cm Airstlye Bar setup is additionally equipped with 6m extensions of the flying lines. Thanks to this feature, the low end gets even more effective when using one of our larger kites.
It is our standard at FLYSURFER to use the system of the Frontline Safety – this additional FLS end line is incorporated approximately in the middle of a front line – the exact details are always dependent on the kite line and the kite size. However, some FLYSURFER kite lines use a different safey system. The VIRON, for example, has a Raff-Safety. For lovers of the 5th line, a FDS conversion kit (full depower system) is available in most product lines.

Single-Skin Concept - The PEAK3 is a foil kite which only needs one top sail to form the wing. This Single-Skin concept draws in kiters with its unique characteristics and ratio of performance per square meter. The high efficiency remains controllable thanks to the PEAK3’s progressive depower and stability. The kite benefits from the wing’s lack of inertia, has far less tendency to overshoot and its reduced weight means it behaves well in gusty wind. When it comes to kiting in the low-end wind range, the PEAK3 definitely sets the standard.
Universal Application - As easy to fly as an entry-level school kite but designed for high-adrenaline adventures. Whether it’s on land or snow, with a kite landboard or a buggy, skis or snowboards, for freeride or teaching purposes, adults or children, beginners or advanced, for urban street kiting or as a traveling companion; the PEAK3 is your ultimate weapon for your daily session.
Unmatched Low End - Can you fly a kite with nearly no wind? You can with the PEAK3! The kite provides incredible stability and control in the lightest winds. With a 30% reduction of the bridle lines, the PEAK3 produces less drag, letting it achieve its unique low-end. You can even have fun in 3 – 8 knot winds!
Reef Line Safety - The unique, patented Reef Line Safety of the PEAK3 ensures maximum security and all but guarantees the easy reactivation of the kite. The advantage of the Reef Line, compared to a single frontline safety system, is an immediate contraction of the kite’s wing span. This results in a controlled, powerless crash of the kite. In light winds it may occur that some lines fold over a wingtip. The Reef Line Safety is an additional red-colored line included in every PEAK3 package. Please follow the assembly instructions carefully.
Minimal Pack Size - The PEAK3 is built for traveling, trekking and touring. Its Single-Skin concept meets the requirements for snowkiting and landkiting better than any other kite. Take advantage of its featherlight weight and super-small pack sizes. The PEAK3 provides highest safety in the most dangerous situations, supported by the Reef Line Safety and an immediate loss of power, if needed, at any time.
