For waveriding in 25 to 30 knots try a 8m kite with 15m lines. Down the line riding is very easy with this combo.

14 & 16 X4's are been airfreighted to Dubai, left factory on the 7th should be in the shop in a few days.

I am sticking to my V4's and Boxers, but a friend is getting the X4 14 as soon as it arrives.

I find that the most important thing is the gap between the side of my foot and the strap. The tighter this is the better, and you can then get away with the top part of the strap been either tight or loose. Important to have the strap making contact with the sides and top of your foot, 3 points of ...

I have the V4 20 which replaced my X3 20. The V4 has much more power (pull) than the X3 and is very stable in the air even in very light wind. It jumps well but not as high as the X3, although the float could be better if anything. The V4 still depowers well and I was using it this week in onshore w...

Cyclone, take a video of it and send it to Naish. I recently eventually had a X3 20 replaced after 3 months suffering with very bad jellyfishing and no bottom end power.

Was hesitant to use a waist harness as during my windsurf days I found that I had to use a seat as I got a sore back wi...

I agree with Peter and have change my quiver sizes to 20,16,12,9 from 20,14,8 as I found that I was using my 20 70% of the time and also found my 14 was often just a little small or on rare occasions a little big. The big advantage I have with my new quiver is that I can now ride powered up all the ...
