Re: Naish Slash 2018 on 20m lines

I would say that at least the smaller sizes are designed to be used with the 20m bar. I have the 5m (2018) and 7m Slash (2019) and they are perfect on that line length. When I ride the 7m with my twintip I usually put 2m extensions on the bar for some added hangtime and to slow it down a bit. Have n...

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

Yep, same old myths over and over again. As it has been written probably by a thousand times already, bladder leaks were more difficult to repair with the Octopus system maybe 10 years ago due to small zippers on the struts. Not today any more.

Re: holiday resort for families near kite beach in Europe

Not sure about kids club but Dos Mares in Tarifa is right on the beach and a nice spot to hang out. Body Boarding, surfing, SUP, windsurf as alternatives. May is great in Tarifa.

Re: Impact Vest's Shocking Statement

I have the same vest, I like it. It is similar to stretchy kitesurfing impact vests from other brands. Of course you can get heavier padded and bulkier ones. I think the disclaimer refers to impact vests used for example for horse riding or snowboarding where you have a solid protector for your spine.

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

I just bite on the floater and have it on a necklace. I usually shoot for a couple of minutes, stash it away and take it out again when I want to film. I put it under a stretchy impact vest with front zipper. A lycra over the wetsuit would be another option. In a video I saw Kevin Langeree putting i...

Re: Naish Ride vs Dash

Don´t have a scale at hand but they weigh around the same. And not 3kg, that must be a typing error.

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

Similar to the 2018. Had my 7m out for half a day now with a TT in changing conditions from being under powered to very powered.
I think there is a lot of info concerning the 2018 model in this thread.

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

If it is from the Naish Range I would pick a big Boxer (one strut kite) for real light wind. That is what I am going to do next year, adding a 14m Boxer above my 11m Pivot

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

They definitely have. Although they do very well in waves they are not specialized wave kites, but freeride/allround kites with a lot of jumping performance. German GleitenTV test format rates them as the 3-strut kite with the most performance, coming close to 5-strut freeride kites (low end, jumpin...

Re: Naish Ride vs Dash

In all the years I have used Naish kites with the Octopus system I only once had to replace a LE bladder on a 2016 Pivot, as it was leaking at the inflate valve. I know that there is the old myth, that it is so hard to maintain/repair. That was probably the case when the zippers at the struts were s...
