my 2013 9mt and 7mt both flutter when I send them across the wind window...

...at the beginning I always looked up to check where "the sound is coming from" - its actually quite loud, but after a while I just got used to it...

I'm fairly new to kite surfing though I have been flying power kites for a long time.

I have a 10m 2011 and 12m 2012 Park and I live in one of the windiest parts of the windiest country in Europe.

The wind can get super gusty here and so far the parks cope with it really well - though not quite as good as the Naish Bolt

I agree that they seem a little bit prone to fall out of the sky if there are are big lulls in the wind when you are flying in the low end of whats ridable but as for coping with gusts they are very good in my opinion

Unfortunately they did not have 2013 models. What I noticed was the fluttering on the trailing edge. As my 2011's are rock solid, I believed this was a one time thing. Now I see that there are still such issues on the 2013. Any other info on that? It is quiter bothering to have those vibrtions on the bar. Maybe a setup issue? Any input?


hmm, I have not noticed any fluttering. I am sure I can get it to flutter if I loop and depower at the same time...but no consistent fluttering that I know. I do not remember having that on my 2012 either...but I don't remember if specifically that it did not have it either.... Was this on one specific kite, or did you try more? Could it be an anomaly on that one kite? Any repairs on that kite?


I tried a 12, then another 12, then all I was looking at after that was the trailing edge near the wingtips. I saw it flutter on the 10 also. All 2012 parks.

Is the Park, Naish's "wave" kite? That's what their riders are using in wave contests I think.

I think they designate all their kites as all terrain.
Park can definitely be used in waves. It is super stable drifts well, and is easy to use.

I've seen some of their riders pull off some insane moves on that kite, so it can definitely do more than just wave ride.

2013 drift well

Don't park these girls at 12 in fickle winds or she'll drop.
