About being a newbee, I remember i learned on Naish kites, and hated it because when over chating it just never pulled you. So I switched to Cabrinhs and North kites. The idea of this kites alows begginers to have a fun ride!

No, you can replace the lines like any other bar.
My understanding is that the Ride bar is equiped with 24m length lines and no extension lines are provided (4x4m extension lines are provided with Park and Bolt in larger size, with a 20m lines bar). :cool2:

Damien developed quite interesting projects since he joined Naish.
I think he changed their products image in a very positive way.

If anybody has a chance to compare back to back the 10m 2012 Park to the 10m Ride in surf on a surf board, I am all ears. Turning speed, position in the window, stability, power. Let us know!!!

I sure hope not. The 9 Bolt this year is the best sigma shape they have ever made.
