Re: Naish Slash 2018 vr Naish Slash 2019

YES!!!! So I finally yielded to pressure...ok not really pressure, but Dirk here told me to get a slash. So last year I got one and absolutely loved it. Insanely good for waves, great jumper and super fun foiling kite. It was just soooo smooth. This year I think they have several significant upgrade...

Re: Naish Foiling 2018

Taut how do you like the hover 130? I just received mine and the weight of it surprised me... Did you mean it feels solid? ;-) Yeah it has some weight to it. I like it a lot. My foundation for comparison is thin but my experience with the board has been very positive. It is large enough to bounce m...

Re: Naish Ride vs Dash

Hey, thank you all for replies :) One another question - if I decide to take Dash (9m), which bar should I choose (does it matter)? I still have old Naish 2013 Universal Bar 2013 - would it work as a backup bar with new Dash 2019? I was using this one with Park 7,9,12 and worked perfectly. Yeah the...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

@ tautologies. Do you fly the bigger Pivots, 10, 12, 14m and how do you characterize the bar pressure on these sizes? Thanks Yes. I have flown the new 11. In the past, I have flown all of them, and 10, 11 and 14 (barely) last year. The bar feel and pressure is similar across sizes IMO. It depends a...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

My comment was directed at bradleygood and I agree with you, it’s not always straight forward buying used gear and yes, there is more risk you’ll get a dud. I’ve had friends get their instructor involved and I’ve helped out a few newbies myself. It’s not complicated, you just have to make sure you ...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

If only you knew how many people drop half a fortune on all the latest gear only to never use it and then sell it all 18 months later. So many practically unused kites out there that go for 30% off or more. OP: It’s pretty easy to judge whether a used kite is a good deal or not. Check for cuts on t...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

As a beginner absolutely no need to be splashing out on new kites like these even if $$ is not a concern . It's pointless, buy a good secondhand kite for half the price and when you've gotten some skills and understanding then start searching for a kite that suits . I dunno. I've seen kiters be tak...

Re: Naish Ride vs Dash

The ride and dash are as opposite as they can be. I've ridden and owned both. Ride is a powerful sheet and go style kite. Very forgiving ...but with great qualities. A few of my friends that have been kiting for a long time swears to it for wave riding and freestyle strapless riding. Not a delta kit...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

I have no problem recommending Pivot for a beginner. Several friends started off with the Pivot as their first kite. It is also a kite that can take you as far as you want to go given that the kite won the Red Bull King of the Air this year. I don't know the XR5 so I got nothing there.
