Maui or Oahu ?

I asked one of the guys if that was the 2011 stuff, " yeah, you know it." I went and had lunch and came back to see what was going on and they had about 10-15 kites out with about 20-30 riders. Men, women, kids, all sorts of people. I was looking at the Naish site, and I didn't really recognize any of the guys, but then who knows.

I still kick myself that I didn't have the balls to go up to Robbie and ask him about the new gear. I see him around here and there, but I'm too chicken to talk to him. I'm such a beginner it would have been embarrassing to talk to him about kite gear, if I didn't even understand what he was saying.

Can't say I noticed anything about the one pump system they had. I watched a guy pump up a kite, but wasn't really paying attention.

It was cool, even my wife thought it was fun to see all the new stuff before it hits the stores. I just wish I had a camera.

Anyway, just thought I'd share my excitement with you all. I know I can't afford new gear, but at least I can afford used stuff once the new stuff comes out.
Aloha

Just saw some of the stuff last week in Egypt.
It seems that white is the new black for Naish in 2011.
Both the Momentum and the Thorn go back to a mainly white colour scheme for the top.
Between the straps/bindings its more a multicolour affair. Some colourful drawings for the Thorn and for the Momentum, it has Momentum spelled out in large font on a mostly red background with some doodles in black towards the tips. Bases are multicoloured and bright similar to 2010's but with a different pattern.
Shapewise, I couldn't really see much difference with 2010's.
For sure, the Momentum still has less rocker than Nobile's NHP.
I also saw what looked like a women's specific waist harness. Again mainly white colour scheme, with some blue detailing. Design wise it looked a bit like a cross between Naish's older Kite Diamond harness and the Mystic Warrior.
No pictures as I forgot my camera in the hotel ...

Were there only boards or also kites?

Only a 2010 Helix. Could be that they brought some kites as well, but didn't see any on the beach.

Here's a picture of what the Momentum's base looks like.
You can also see the new harness in the picture.
