Any suggestions? :)

Did Naish lick the sugar off your candy?

Haha, kinda ;)
I did have amazing last 4-5 years riding Naish Park and it would be still my only choice... but the octopus system.
I want to find something similar but octopus-free.

If they (Naish) start designing kites without Octopus I'll stop buying them. Hahaha

I think some of the Epic kites that dimitri maramenides sells are a little bit like the Naish lineup that you like so much. Try contacting him to see if you can get a demo. Sorry I can't remember the exact model names.

One of the things that is hard about recommending a kite similar to something else is that very few has enough time on two completely different kites to say much intelligent about it. I've certainly not ridden another kite that had the same qualities a the Dash in terms of responsiveness and how it likes to be flown.

OP: How old are your Parks? Is it still the 2013 you have in your profile? What is your main objection against the Octopussy system? I am genuinely interested because they have made some improvements that made it easier to access the internal workings on the kites in case of something happening.

Don´t let yourself get fooled by a few fanboys here that will bash you as soon as you say something against the greatest invention in kitesurf history....
When did anyone "bash" people for having an opinion. Or do you just mean that someone has a different opinion and says it? I like the system and I h ave no issues saying it, but I do not think I ever bashed anyone for any reason really.

Anyway I think it is great that we have different opinions here. It means we can learn from each other.

IN light of gender equality demand Octopussy system, or else!
