Looks just another ineffiecint so called "ram air" kite! (ie, Peter Lynn, JoJo, Flysurfer, F-One STW/Shadow, etc.)

Try total power and pretty close to max efficient ram air kite... Flexifoil Blades.

What is the point in flying this new Naish? Relaunchability?? The beauty of Blades is that they don't relaunch.

Flying this new Naish ram air with 4 lines, even three takes away from its performance! They probably recommend flying it on 30m or less lines as well.

For snow? again, you want it down and out.

Oh, it has depowering system.... well, why not take 5 minutes, come in and put up the right size Blade and be properly powered? Again, why fly an inefficient kite (any kite flown with a depowering system is inefficient!)?

i've heard that this kite is produced together with the Flysurfer team, this is maybe the point, why it looks like a warrior.

OK, they didn't invent the inflatable - but they showed the initiative to refine it, make it higher aspect and market it as a 4-line tool for kitesurfing. The Wipika (wing) was for kitesurfing, but also for boats, kyaks etc.




Geeeezzzeeeeee

What is with these Naish Zelots? Do you develop amnesia when you sell your soul??? :duh:

The Air blast was the first “Highâ€

as I recall it right, a Flysurfer designer works for Naish now, therefore it looks similar

Isn't pointing out the similarities of the Naish and Flysurfer kites a bit like pointing out the similarities between different LEI? There's only som many ways you can build a kite.

The depower system on the Ozone Frenzy is exactly the same as the Flysufer WAC but nobody talks about them stealing stuff. Come to think about it, Naish had the coloured bands long before Ozone ....

Come to think about it, Rob Whittal multi-world champion and started at an early age. Robbie Naish ......

You're mental. You want to be powered up with the kite depowered, then as you power the kite you you are really overpowered and go big.

Sounds like you, my son, are a bit of a wus.
