2010/11 Naish Universal bar safety problems

Not trying to bash here. Over 10 year Naish rider. Just pointing out a problem for safety of other riders. The 2010/11 Universal bar design was nice and clean however it failed on me twice and makes for an unsafe situation for you and others if you try to self rescue. My opinion, a flawed design. Fi...

Re: Some ideas for Naish designers for 2012..

Shouldn't we be getting some leaked images of 2012 kites already??? Yes, once the Boss has approved them, and got his "random" poster to upload them. :lol: I'd like to see a kite that performs and lives up to the hype. The Torch is a great kite and sets standards, we all know this. The others? Well...

Hyperflex Amp-k review

Finnaly got wind and was able to try the Hyperflex Amp-k wetsuit. I bought the 4/3 back zip based on a review from this site. My previous wetsuit was a 4/3 NeilPryde. It was just too heavy and was not warm enough. It did serve me well for 5 years so nothing bad to say about NeilPryde. I was just rea...

2011 Naish Custom Fish 6'0 review

Just had a first ride on the Naish Fish 6'0. Gotta say I love it. Felt instantly at home, like Naish made this board just for me. A bit about me. 220 lbs 6 foot 3 inches tall. Riding 2010 Helix kites. Tried many surfboards but just could not jibe them because I am too heavy. They always ended up sin...

Man great pictures. How does he get such good shots? Looks like he is in the water next to you.

Re: Maui trip: rental o carry the kite?

I am going in April too. I went last year about the same time too. No one rents kites, not just a Maui thing. Obvious liability reasons. Pack your kites in your checked luggage or get space bags and carry them on with you. I would bring both the 7 and 10. The wind can be light or nuking in April and...

Re: High boosting kites

I used to boost huge on the Ravens. I am on 2010 Helix kites now. The 9 I have yet to test the full limits. Crazy high and powerful. 12 not so much . But I don't really boost all the time anymore. I needed kites that had more range for wave riding. The Ravens were just a mess in gusty ocean conditio...

Kite makers and their home beaches

This conversation may have come up before. Wondering what the consensus is on kite makers and their beaches. So for example I think it is safe to say that Naish rules at kitebeach in Maui. This could be debated I am sure. Caution = Waddel Creek, CA (I think any windy day you go this will be obvious)...

Re: surfy feel on a twin tip

Seriously I think your doing yourself a disservice by not going to a directional surfboard. I speak from experience. I cheated and ride my old wipika 163 twin in the surf. Great fun and easy to change directions but it is tough to really ride the wave. I burry the nose a lot. I am moving to a Naish ...
