Sorry OZ guys,

But Melb or Syd cant beat Perth kiting. Specially Safety Bay which is a spot #1 on the Planet.

Non kiting is another matter. But than, with all that wind one needs to rest :)
I would have said Perth too for sure if the op hadn't mentioned the requirement for an interesting city

Re: Best city in world for kitesurf vacation

Cities? What are you looking for in a "city"? If you're just looking for somewhere nice to kitesurf, there are plenty of options. If you're looking for somewhere with convenient access to good kitesurfing that is also a large & interesting city with diverse cultural interest, nightlife, dining etc....

Re: Naish Pivot 2020

From a day to day point of view, while the time taken to put a valve in (versus crimping a normal one pump) is not much different, the octopus system deflates much more quickly. Overall I find my Naishs faster to pack than my Ozones.

Re: Naish Pivot 2020

How annoying is the octopus aside from repairs ? It seems like an extra step to open and close valves on the struts. Worth waiting ? I've owned several Naish kites with the octopus system. I've repaired a strut leak and also replaced a valve. Is it more difficult than traditional connection hoses f...

Re: Moto, Evo or Pivot ?

No comment on the flying, but the inflate/deflate on the Pivot will be better than the others. The only disadvantage of the octopus is repairs (albiet a hugely overstated issue).

Re: Wetsuit can't decide - Mystic Legend vs Rip Curl Flash Bomb

I have had both, and for an equivalent for the only reason to get the Legend is if it is (much) cheaper. They both later about the same, but the f bomb is warmer and more flexible

Re: Shorten Naish Bar

Hello Runner, Did you figure out how to shorten the newer version bar? I am thinking to get 8m Dash but it seems too fast to unhook with the standard 55cm sized bar. However, there's an option to use the 50cm but I have to buy it separately, unfortunately I don't like BTB, which is the only option (...

Re: Depower Lines Wear, Strength, Replacement

I have no idea about Best lines, but Naish do not have the internal lines shown by Gyre on Flysurfer

Re: Why two regular shaped twintips?

@ Taught, too true, too funny, my bad! These days, even great lakes dwellers usually have more than one. @ Matteo, I'll get flamed for this, and really did try not to comment, but some things must be said. You are having fun..... good on you, but that is the kookiest shit I have seen since Toby's e...

Re: Recommendations for medium-rockered freestyle/wakestyle board

Naish Monarch or North/Duotone Hadlow?

The Monarch is fast, low rocker.

The Hadlow has a bit more rocker, easier to pop (for me) but slower. It also has a grind base.

Both nice boards
