Re: Naish Park/Dash - like kite but not Naish?

I have the Dash. I love that kite. I also have an RPM; feels very similar to me. I love the RPM too. I HATE that mother loving octopus system. I would pay more for a Naish kite without it. I had to sell my beloved and spotless Helix kites because it was uneconomical to fix the frikin' Octopus connec...

Re: Florianopolis in October/November?

November is windiest month there. It is a great place. Mostly will be empty. The real tourist season is Jan-Feb.
Lots of location. There is even a lake in the middle of the island. They have a small kite school there.

Re: Global Kiteboarding Population

I think it is quite a low number. I would estimate the max number of kitesurfers as the total through put of all the kite schools over the last 10 years. Active kiters in the world are less then 50k.

NEVER do that self launch!
Just a question of time when you will get badly injured.
ALWAYS use a tethered method, when you attach your bar to a fixed object.
That is not 100% safe but a magnitude less risky.

Re: No more Naish Park HD in 2017 ?

I am disappointed too! I was waiting for the 2017 Park to get new kites.
Something must be wrong with me. I loved the Helix; Naish killed it. Then I had the Bolts the only sigma option left. After I used the Parks. Now with the same fate.
What would be the closest in comparison? Maybe the 2017 RPM?
