When no one else is thinking of kiting yet the Fly will get you out on the water and having fun. The range of the kite is amazing. Check out three riders, Alexis Aguera (115lbs/50kg), Robby Naish (175lbs/80kgs) and Chuck Patterson (225lbs/100kg) all powered up and riding in really light winds.
“Every day on the water is a good day!” These four gentlemen: Pete Siracusa, Bob Street, Cyrus Monroe, and Gerry Shalhoob are not only pioneers of kitesurfing since 1999, they also take Naish’s motto serious and have the most fun on the water. Their attitude and passion for water sports is exceptional and inspirational. Sit back and enjoy their perfect daily life on Maui.

The Finals of the 2012 Naish Summer Kite Race Series took place Saturday at Kanaha beach park on Maui with perfect sunny and windy conditions, a great crowd and lots of tight racing. More than 50 people signed up for racing and the team Ride Relay event. The race is all about fun, but everyone is improving and upping their games so there are no easy wins. The race division is growing and there were new and young faces. Alex Aguera stayed ahead of the pack and his daughter Alexis was not far behind, beating most of the men. The starts of the open division, with more then 30 kiters starting together, was an unbelievable sight. Flash Austin and Patri McLaughlin traded bullets in the first two races, and in the final race Flash pulled it off with a close win. Kalia Aguera kept up the family tradition and was not far behind the leading men.
This was the final race of the Naish Summer Kite Race Series and the Hawaiian state champions were crowned combining the results from all the race days with the final day counting double. With Alexis and Kalia Aguera and Flash Austin, three Naish riders placed on top of the podium. The awards party kept going well into the night, capping off a full day of action and fun.

State-of-the-art C-kite for competition freestyle, power freeriding and unhooked waveriding.
The Torch flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge. Power is delivered smoothly, with depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of the kite’s ability to fly fast. Whether you are hooked in or unhooked, riding is effortless and precise. The position of the kite’s struts makes it stiffer in the air, for even more precise handling.
The Torch is equally at home winning heats on the world stage as it is ripping up your home beach.
“The Torch, I think, is the most legendary and successful C kite on the market. I always compare it to a sports car. It’s powerful, stable, and turns smooth. If you want power it will generate it and that is perfect for freestyle. The kite feels so natural to me. What we’ve done with the 2013 Torch is made the small sizes slightly slower and the big sizes slightly faster. My goal for this years kites was to make all sizes have close to the same turning speed and feel.” – Kevin Langeree

The one kite that does it all – any rider, any style, any condition.
The Park’s three-strut design and Swept Compact C outline results in a very stable and responsive kite. The powerful profile and leading edge give the rider good low-end power and consistent pull over a wide range of wind speeds.
The Park uses just enough sweep to maximize depower and allow for easy relaunch. The Swept Compact C platform remains very close to a real C-shape in order to provide the crispness and feel in the bar that you really need.
Designed with fun in mind, the Park provides the rider with the power to boost, the handling to hit the lip with style and the ability to feel good in any condition.
