I haven't tried the same size yet, but had a short ride on my new Boxer2 16 yesterday in underpowered conditions. I don't see any differences in the panels or in the way the Boxer2 flys, the main difference is in the leading edge construction and the graphics. The leading edge now has the same const...

I have only ridden mine 4 times. Once in 10 - 12 knots with a V4 20, twice in 25 to 30 with a Boxer 9 and once with a V4 16 in about 15 knots. The mutant side is great. Very fast, great grip, wave riding - very tight bottom turn and very tight grippy off the top turn, but I don't like the TT side. I...

Personal preference. They are both good. Generally newer kiters use a seat harness, and more experienced a waist harness but this is a big generalisation. Waist harness allows a wider range of movement and makes getting the board back on your feet after boardoff easier, but some top pro's used seat ...

Hi Ramo I live in Dubai (U.A.E), from what I have heard the wind is great in Bahrain (and alos in Qatar, and Saudi). Talking to a guy who lives there a few months back and they mainly ride 12m & 8m kites, and occassionally 16m. I think the best time of year is from Dec to July when the Shamal blows ...

In my area (low wind area) everyone used to buy high aspect kites. But recently more and more experienced riders are buying med aspect kites, and intermediate riders are buying high aspect kites. Reason is, intermediate riders normally don't do tricks, can't jump that well so want a kite that is the...

I have been riding the V4 16 for about 6 months and have ridden a friends X4 16 for about an hour in total. The X4 16 generates a lot of board speed, while the V4 16 does not. The X4 16 feels very big, I think due to the long leading edge compared to the V4 16. The X4 16 compared to the V4 16 is slo...

Spreader comes in two lengths as stated above 24" and 28", I have seem both at my local shop.

You cut your bar down, by cuting the ends off then cutting a piece off each side and then welding the ends back on. I had this done to a std Naish spreader bar for a friend, for his young son to use.

The Naish Boxer is a great mid aspect kite. Depowers well and can edge the power out the kite.

Mid aspect kites have a shorter leading edge and therefore complete 180 degree turns much quicker. They are also more stable, so better for learning tricks and wave riding.

X3 20 and X2 20 all do this. It is especially bad when the kite is full powered up and you edge hard.

The V4 20 & 18 also does this, but to a lesser extent.
