Re: naish pivot 14m

I think it depends to what kind of kite you compare it. When you compare it to delta shaped freeride Kites like XR5 or Rebel they probably have a similar windrange in the same size. When you compare it to C-Shaped Hybrid Kites go a meter down.

Re: How fun is kiting in Tarife in Levante?

Never seen somebody kiting there or setting up his gear. It is full of rocks. Go to the usual places at Valvaqueros like the ION station. Easy to set up, parking lot, nice cafe and then head out a bit.

Re: How fun is kiting in Tarife in Levante?

In March you might have a good chance to get more Poniente days which is nice. Levante is gusty and the water choppy. I kited quite often in Bolonia, 20min North, the next bay, during off-season. It always felt a bit less gusty there, wind usually side-shore. It is forbidden during the summer months...

Re: 7m Naish Pivot

7m Pivot will be nice in 30-40 knots at your weight. It will be technically easier to jump than your Torches and will have more hang time. Having a good C-kite-schooled jumping technique will have you getting most out of the kite. I had all versions since 2015, currently on the 2019. 2017-2019 has t...

Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

I am regular footed, unfortunately the main wind direction here is from the left. Riding the wave frontside with your „unnatural“ foot forward is about training, but it will probably never feel so intuitive. Working on land with a surf skateboard like a Carver helps a lot, because you can do endless...

Re: Which GoPro and mouth mount to film like Langeree?

Kevin Langeree uses the floaty. For GoPro 5-7 you need the solid back door of the housing to stick the floaty on. I believe it comes in a set. I think Kevin just puts the camera under the front zipper of his wetsuit when he his riding and not filming. I attach mine with a leash to my impact vest and...

Re: How to enlarge the Naish Apex straps? (Neo shoes, boots)

That would be the release August/September next year, when the boards get updated. This spring (March/April) it will be the Dash/Ride/Boxer kites.

Re: 9m Naish Pivot

In comparison to your Park your impression is spot on. You need to ride the Pivot 1m smaller to have the same windrange (that has been discussed many times since the kite was launched). I moved from 7/9/12 Park (2014) to 6/8/11m Pivot when it came out in 2015. I am riding the 2019 model now. I also ...

Re: Camrig Gen4 for GoPro Hero-6

As I wrote above, I use the plugs only on one side, so that the flagging line can move freely for sure. The camera stays in place that way.
