Without a doubt Naish has the best web page in the industry. Finally! Oh man, now they have a carbon board! Carbon makes me drool! :) Very nice classy video of their twintip board range. Well done Naish kite boarding! Truely a mature kiting brand!

Also last years Ally Binding was a fantastic pad and strap combo. North, I think, just out done them with the NTT straps, however it looks like this years Ally bindings have taken a couple of cue's from the NTT straps. The base, screw system, the way the straps attach to the base as well as the shape of the base, look very very similar to the NTT straps. Let see. This could be the best straps of the year?

This is in the video, but I don't think it's on the website. Or is this the bullet? Looks like a free-race board.

That is the bullet.
I think it would fit the free race classification, but definitely a board you actually ride in a small wave.
I've had a short go on this board....but unfortunately not in light winds..it was nuking, so it is really hard to say how it will work in light winds. Could work for small kine waves.

Why was the Sigma design killed? I guess cost cutting since it had 5 struts.

Maybe they didn't sell enough? The 9 Bolt last year is one of the best kites ever made IMO if you wanted a great stable and super easy to use kite...already a classic in my mind. :-)

That said, I've been putting a lot of time on the Ride lately, and I can certainly see how the ride and Bolt cover much of the same ground...and the ride has some advantages a 5 strut kite cannot compete with. Ride has superb light wind qualities and packs down to almost nothing. Travelling almost begs for a Ride. :-)

Having a kite named "Fly" and a board named "Fly" is fail.

There seems like no reason to have the "ride" bar and "universal" bar, perhaps one is a few dollars cheaper.
