Re: Getting in shape for kite trip. Costa Rica

Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery yesterday! Unexpected!

So much for core exercises. Recovery 4 to 6 weeks, I leave in 5weeks.

And I go to Bahia Salinas An hour NW of Liberia airport, for person that asked.

At least the attack didn't happen there, haha.

Re: Getting in shape for kite trip. Costa Rica

Hey sniper. Interesting Q. I would classify as strong and gusty, but less gusty than and or similar to Maui So more consistent on a 9M day than a 7m day A 5 M day, well bound to be an ass kicker! But you only get one of those every 10 days and it's usually not all day long Hope that helps. But it's ...

Re: Getting in shape for kite trip. Costa Rica

6 weeks away from another 2 week trip to Costa Rica I was reviewing the advice from last year to set up my training Last years trip went well, but this year I am struggling with sciatic nerve pain.

Re: Advice from anyone who has ridden Blade Triggers

I am w Matt 12 and 9 is a sweet combo, but I would consider where you are to spend most of your time, if winds are mostly on upper end of its wind range, then 8. But if you want the best compliment for most wind ranges. Then 12. 9 combo

Good luck, max

Re: New 2015 naish pivot?

Thanks guys. I ordered the 9, from 12 to 9 should be good.

My next trip is Costa Rica and I get along plenty on my 9 Park. So Pivot should be sweet!


Taut I tried the Monarch in Maui. Sweet board. Let me know what you thinks once you log some time on it.

Thanks, Max

Re: New 2015 naish pivot?

Advice requested. Trying to decide between a 10M Pivot and 9M My parks are 12 and 9, bought a 12m pivot and earlier commented on bar pressure, but in Maui I rented a 10 M and learned how much de powering can affect bar pressure. Pivot seems lot more responsive to depower than I've experienced before...

Re: Do you listen to music on the water? What player?

How do you guys secure the shuffle when kiting, so it stays attached to you? Pics don't even show the clip on shuffle, is that secure enough when doing tricks or getting pulled from water? And I seen some guys hang it around neck, but is it secure? Guess if u wear tight rash guard it will be somewha...

Re: Delta Airlines Baggage Policy

Leaving Maui last year, the A hole at desk looked at my NSI bag and charged me the $150!

He said that he knew all about Naishs deceptive golf bag and if I argued I could take another plane.

When I got home I called Delta and they said that the desk decides ! No refunds

I no longer fly Delta

Re: New 2015 naish pivot?

At Er I only addressed bar pressure because it's the only thing I was a little surprised about It is a great kite, has good low end and upper range went to bout low 20s mph, jumps great, and it's forgiving when I screw up. I am intermediate and don't do waves so ... Don't know much It is quick turni...

Re: New 2015 naish pivot?

Bought the 12M Pivot, great kite, BUT Bar pressure is greater than my 2011 12m cult and 2012 12m park My son , 26yo also rides my kites and he also found bar pressure heavier. Then I texted a Naish Pro in Maui and he concurred with my assessment Any others? I have a 2013 9m park, and was thinking to...
