Re: Naish ditches octopus system.

I only believe that the Pivot has a further evolved shape after I have put the new one on my 2019 (that will be next week). Naish marketing does not say anything about it and I guess they would if it was a news.

Re: A tribute to the Naish Torch maybe

Yeah, very different kites. Would love to try a current Torch just to know how it feels. Have ridden Ravens until 2010 and loved them, especially the last model from 2007 which was the most refined (but no loops on these...)

Re: A tribute to the Naish Torch maybe

I ordered 2020 Pivots. There were 2020 Torchs on the order sheet, so I would assume that it will be there in 2020. Probably no changes to the kite design, but with the conventional one pump system and the SUP inflation valve.

Re: Jumping fully powered

Anton (can’t spell his family name :D ) has a very good jump tutorial on demand on Vimeo. The best I have come across. Part 2 is on jumping over powered. He proposes not to touch the trimmer at all. It is all in the edging and set up to the jump. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/learningtoflyepisodetwo/23...

Re: Best lines on the market

I always get my replacement lines from www.boardway.org . Liros lines, which are used by several kite companies. A full set of 24m lines is about 110 Euros.

Re: Mouth Mount GoPro Leash?

I have tied a small piece of flying line to the hinge of the case. The end of that line has a knot. I have also tied a larger piece of old flying line to my impact vest and that end has loop. Normally I attach the camera to that line and than store it away under the impact vest when I am not filming...

Re: Kevin Langeree Pro model kiteboard

Is this a completely new board or the Monarch with an alternative graphic design?

Re: Naish Dash 9m (1st edition) does NOT fly

Can´t you just buy some pigtails? They are just a couple of Euros.

Re: Naish Dash 9m (1st edition) does NOT fly

Happend to me only with that Dash (also 9m). My Pivots, Slashs and Boxer flew out of the box with the same bar in perfect manner.

Re: Naish Dash 9m (1st edition) does NOT fly

You could also tie in another knot on the back lines and try it out. I preferred to use the additional pigtails which stay on the bridle so I can use the bar for other Kites without having to change the knots every time.
