Re: New boards vs old boards?

This is the reason why I keep a Naish Global in my quiver. Now Naish has updated the shape through the years, but having a board you can really rip the waves with and go fast once the surf is bigger is critical IMO.

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps

Just note, I think the woo sounds like a fun way to put some fun into a friendly session. I can't be bothered myself but its because I know I would never recharge the woo or get any data out of it.

Should go without saying to keep them as close as possible. A Woo on the toeside edge will move a lot more up and down than a Woo on the heelside edge.
How do you figure that? They are stuck to the same inflexible plate.

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Also, be careful when you pack the kite. I had my Pivot packed pretty tight when I traveled and also had a slow leak when started to use it. It turned out that the threaded cap had deformed the lower part on the v-shaped area that seals against the rubber gasket. Luckily plastic is viscoelastic so ...

Re: New boards vs old boards?

Thanks you for the input. Its quad also. Problem is that we dont have big waves here :) So I dont know if its a keeper when I travel 😉 But its only 300gram (5 10)more weight than slice flex (5 3) It can still be fun tho. I think I know the board you are referring to. Its a great board for powered s...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Hey Chirojoseph, My last kite session I had the same problem with my Naish 12M Pivot. I did the bubble test this morning and found the same thing you did, a very slow leak at the main inflation valve. Could you kindly expand on how you resolved the issue? I am hesitant "rip apart" anything. Your ex...

Re: 2 straps versus 3 straps

Here's a video (I believe I posted it already a couple of years ago). Not very exciting, but shows my feet in great detail! The board is 18" wide, only 4'10" long, doesn't have much volume & has a relatively flat rocker line. My front foot is pretty much parallel to the axis of the board, so the he...

Re: 2 straps versus 3 straps

Taut: I would be curious to know where exactly you place your front foot when you're riding with your inline straps? My guess is that just your toes are clinging onto the strap & your foot is more parallel with the rail (this is when you are not actually driving the board on the wave). That is how ...

Great video analysis of why I've recommended updating to the last version of woo to increase jump heights.
