The biggest change is definitely the new fixed bridle. Super responsive. Read the full review here http://capetown-watersports.com/2014-naish-park-review/

I adapted very quickly to the new park on this 1st flight.
Excellent grunt for a 12m/200lb rider in 15-18kts.
Flys fast to the edge and won't overfly...super stable.

Finally got to ride my new 2014 10m Park. Had two sessions in a row and went from the 2014 to the 2012. There is a big difference, the static bridle makes a huge difference with improved responsiveness.

Unhooking on this kite it almost feels like a torch now, when loading up you get ripped off the water and then the lines go slack just when you want 'em to. I could not believe the power generated when loading and popping, and I must say it took me a few tries to get used to it.

The new Park feels way more engaged than the 2012 as there's no lag from the pulleys when you load the kite hard. Jumps bigger too and I'm pleased to say that the kite no longer stalls at the bottom of powered loops. No backstall issues whatsoever. Bar pressure is a little bit heavier now too.

This Kite is sweet! Now I've got to sell the rest of my 2012 quiver.

Hi. Today in Maui I tried for the first time the new Park 8. Awesome kite, best Park ever. It has been improved in every aspect. Stable, quick in the flight window with an excellent bar feeling is now closer to a dedicated wave kite but without sacrificing the jumping performances. Overall I was more than happy with it :thumb: :bye: !
Cheers
Carlo

PS: I'm trying to add three pics before the jet leg kills me!

The new park is a riders kite perfectly designed to make the most out of every condition,
after 4 sessions I am delighted with how massive the range and how super stable it is.
totally stoked 8-)
