NAISH SHOCKWAVE

The SHOCKWAVE is a unique new kite design that will bring wave riding to the next level. Features an all new control system with double purchase bar allows for a much greater range of adjustment of the kites angle of attack than previously possible. Combiningthis with the SHOCKWAVES larger projected area makes for asignificant gain in power adjustment.| S I Z E S : 7-9 -1 2-1 6 A N E L E C T R I F Y I N G N E W S U R F K I T E W I T H P R E C I S I O N , P O W E R A N D C O N T R O L O N D E M A N D . The SHOCKWAVE is a unique new kite design that will bring wave riding to the next level. Features an all new control system with double purchase bar allows for a much greater range of adjustment of the kites angle of attack than previously possible. Combiningthis with the SHOCKWAVES larger projected area makes for asignificant gain in power adjustment. The gain in adjustment makes a huge difference when you’re riding a wave. The kite can be depowered no matter where it is in the wind window. You will no longer have to fight the compounding speed and power of your kite. Speed and control can easily be maintained through strong gusts or big holes. Now you can position yourself on a wave where you want, when you want, and how you want. Finally you are free to interpret and ride the waves like you always dreamed of. The shockwave is an “SLE kite” (Supported Leading Edge). Naish’s R&D history includes a number of flat bridled kites built over the years, including the “fat boy,” “chop kite,” and most recently the “shifter” prototype. The end result of this development is the Shockwave… the most dynamic surf kite made to date. The cornerstones of Naish R&D have been performance, safety, innovation and quality. This balance has once again been achieved with the SHOCKWAVE. Creating a kite that can safely bring a rider through the strongest gust or squall without being lofted has also been a Naish mission. The SHOCKWAVE’S unique design, draft, aspect ratio, and control system work together to achieve these goals. This is the easiest to ride, best performing wave kite ever designed. The benefits of the SHOCKWAVE don’t stop there. Upwind sailing efficiency and jumping have also been redefined. With an SLE kite, you can now fine tune your kite into the perfect flying position. The SHOCKWAVE allows you to sail closer to the wind with less board pressure and overall effort. Big jumps can easily be achieved without needing precise timing. Now you can just keep your kite high, hit your ramp, and pull your bar in for as much lift as you desire. With all the adjustment available, you are now one step closer to actually flying.
