the only thing any kite video ever shows is the skill of the kiter. is that for sale somewhere?
Very true ! and sadly, Kit is never a substitute for skill, I'm resigned to that :(

Re: naish pivot: 11 or 12m size?

Haven't ridden the 2020's, but the 2019 12m is good for me on a "surf board" directional in the 14-22 knot range, I also weight 75 kg. I think the 11m might be better for jumping, as it would be operating more comfortably in that wind range. at 22knots on the 12m I'm on full 'handbrake'.

Re: Reedin Phoenix. Born again

April 1st ?

Naish Helix was probably my favourite kite, seemed fast in a straight line, and incredibly stable.

if it's not an April Fool, it would be great to see Reedin evolve the design.

When this is over. Kite like you stole it, carve like an Artist, boost like a bird, we get one chance. some even don't get that.

Re: Kevin Langeree leaving Naish...

Re: Kevin Langeree leaving Naish...

you may well think that it is a total misuse of the term, "bite the hand that feeds them" , because you are mistaken in thinking that the term was aimed at forum users who have contributed to this post.

I was Implying that Langeree and Girardin may have bitten the hand that feed them.

Re: Kevin Langeree leaving Naish...

I doubt if many of these comments would be posted, if Kevin had won KOTA ? Reedin would be off and running, the best kite ever !!

But he didn't.

They seem like nice blokes, and the graphics are fresh. but, it's not always good to "bite the hand that feeds you"

Re: naish pivot 3 set quiver: 12/9/7 or 12/9/6

Hi, You weight a fraction more than me, (75K) I ride Pivots in UK conditions and air temp, using 12 , 9, 7, m. If I could justify the purchase I would get a 6m for the occasional f***king windy times. but I think you will be fine with 12,9, 7. mine are 2018, I think you will like the 2019/2020's ,
