Re: Pivot Unbaised Review. Good Kite For Surf?

Got the kites. They look awesome. Question - manual says you must deflate the struts by opening the the valve on the struts? There is no workaround to make it so you can just open the main deflate valve & have the whole kite deflate? Seems like a pain.

Re: Ram airs crash in 2017

It's funny. Way back in the beginning of kiting when it was Flexifoil Blades vs inflatables, I was constantly told everything that the op was saying. I used to kite on a 4.9 Blade, day after day after day at a famous surf spot in Southern California. Wave after wave after wave. I would have a blast....

Re: Pivot Unbaised Review. Good Kite For Surf?

Would like to solicit an unbiased review from someone on the Naish Pivot. I only ride waves, all kinds of waves. Looks like the Slash is the Naish wave-kite, but my thoughts are that the Pivot will go upwind better??? It's critical for me to have a kite that goes upwind easily. I know a lot of guys...

Re: Hawaii, where to kite?

Maui's not crowded at all. It's a total myth. You just have to wait for buoy 51101 to hit 15 feet at 17 seconds or longer. Clears the crowds right out :oops:

Re: Naish Kite Specs Tech Sheet Sizing?

Matteo, thanks for the response. I understand your great points. My thing is I have a 6m that's one brand & a 7m that's another brand. I layed them over each other & they both had the same length leading edge. Only the 6 had less depth-draft. For me the 6 was more like a 7 in terms of power. Would b...

Naish Kite Specs Tech Sheet Sizing?

Looking everywhere to see the specs on Naish Pivots, 2017 & 2018. I can't find any kind of literature that shows the flat area, projected area, arc, span etc. Am I missing something or did Naish not publish this info for these years?

Re: Banned At Miami Beach 25th Street

You should at least do what others have done to try to preserve access. There is a happy medium between an outright ban & beachgoers feeling threatened. You should form a group. Designate a launching & landing area at that beach. Help inform people to use the area. Let visitors know the rules etc. I...

Re: 2018 Naish Global

Looks awesome. Sure it will be a great board. I'm on the fence between the Global & the S-Quad. Have had S-Quads in the past but they didn't have the speed that the thrusters did. Guessing the Global is a fast board.
