Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

You saying that the pivot is better in waves than the neo? You make this statement about brand bias but your reply is the only one here with it. Hm. Nope. I have not ridden any of the later versions of the Neo (I tried the 2 or 3 first version) so I would not know...but I doubt that smoke is a char...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

OP what you describe is how I use my Pivots. Jumping and waves. Not sure if i believe the any kite smokes the pivot in drift as even kites built specifically for it are just marginally better. I think you'll hear people who has north kites recommended their kites and people who has naish kites recom...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

Completely biased because I use them but I have found the new F-one Bandit to be the ideal combination of really good lift and excellent wave performance. Haven’t tried it unhooked. Bar feedback is great but it’s not particularly light on the bar pressure, which I like but not everyone will. He is ...

Re: Different Kite and Bar Brand

True, any 4 line bar can be used on any 4 lined kite. High or low V doesnt matter much - some will say it does, but you will probably not be able to feel any difference. Knots and loops, if they are different, just change the pigtails on either your bar, or your kite(s) so you can use it on everyth...

Re: 2019 Naish Torch

Isn't Torch essentially renamed/recolored Naish x4 with 5 struts instead of 7? Keep in mind that x4 is virtually the same as x2. Welcome back to year 2002! What? No. Not even close. First of all, the x4 was very different from x2. Second of all the DNA of Torch came from the Boxer. To then conclude...

Same here, I just bought a foil and I am looking for a kite that will work in low winds on TT, surfboard and foil. My gut feeling is the 14m Pivot is good but like most 14m kites it's a slower, heavier version of a 12m.
Yeah Boxer for sure is a better choice for foil.

Re: 14 meter Naish Pivot?

Looking to replace my 2014 North Rebel 14 meter, Looking at the 14 meter Naish Pivot, can’t find any reviews on the 14, does anybody have experience with this kite? Hoping it will be a bit more playful than the Rebel but still have good top end? So I am traditionally a fan of the higher AR big kite...

Re: New to this, is it realistic to teach myself?

Just know that the recommendation of lessons comes from a place of experience, self preservation, concern for the people around you and the fact that we've all seen people be carried off in ambulances. I personally have seen about maybe a dozen people be carried off...this does not include the peopl...
