Re: Naish Torch 2018 vs 2019

Re: new naish kite Triad

Be good to see... but 99% !... The Pivot was marketed as a "do it all", and is a a great kite, but it is bad at unhooked freestyle IMO.

Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

It's not that he doesn't have it figured out, its that he has no choice. Marc is by kiteboarding standards a heavyweight. If he wasn't you can bet he would be going for height, but he doesn't really have that option unless it downright nukes Not sure about that, Kevin looks pretty stocky and must w...

Re: Two quite quiver?

I would say 14m and 10m, in a flat kite design. Maybe a 10m and 14m Naish Pivot or similar ?

Naish Torch bar question

Hello Torch riders

Has anyone used the 2017 onwards bar (with no "Y" split) on the older torch's ?

I have a mixture of 2013,14,15 and 2016 Torchs and fly them on 2014 bars, but the tagling of the 5th line is a hassle, thinking they should fly well on a spinning 2017 torch bar ?

Thanks

Re: Saunton Beach death

Really sorry to hear this, I kite Saunton and it's normally quite a safe beach. I was out today at Southend-on-sea and it was wild 7m weather with huge gusts to 50+mph.

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

Olly Bridge should be in this competition, he has boosted over 28m on his 8m Flysurfer Soul. I have been really impressed with Liam, Jessie and Lasse. I'm a big fan of Posito's all out style but think that Crazy Fly kite is holding him back, a few times it really chocked on the way back up from mega...

Re: King of the Air 2019 - all info here - Thursday 31

I can't see a rider from a warm tropical climate like Brazil or Dominican Republic winning king of the air, they just don't get the punchy high 40knt+ winds. Cape Town really suits riders used to cold dense air, this suits British, French, Spanish, Dutch and South African riders
