Naish Torch video 2014

Torch
Pro Performance Freestyle

The Torch is designed for freestyle riders who demand a state-of-the-art, fast flying C-kite with precision response for hooked in and unhooked riding.

Weight was reduced on the 2014 Torch by implementing reduced diameter struts, which increases the low-end power and improves handling. Power is delivered smoothly on the Torch, while the depower is similar to that of a bridled kite due to its ability to fly fast through the air.

The Torch is the #1 kite of choice for dedicated freestyle and unhooked wave riders.

Naish Park Kiteboarding Hawaii 2014 video

Park
Performance Freeride/Freestyle/Wave

The Park is one kite that does it all for any rider, any style, in any condition. Designed with fun in mind, the Park provides an easy ride, the power to boost and the handling to hit the lip with style.

The powerful profile gives the rider outstanding low-end power and consistent pull over a wide range of wind speeds. Reduced diameter struts were also implemented for increased low-end power, improved aerodynamics and reduced weight. The Compact C outline and three-strut design create a stable and responsive kite. The Park uses just enough sweep to maximize depower and allow for easy re-launch.

The new Static Bridle Platform improves forward flying, acceleration out of turns, stability, instant response and direct bar feel. These characteristics are essential for wave/unhooked riding.

Shot in Namibia

Shot with Canon C100, Canon 7D, Go Pro

Few years ago, a wave has been found in Africa, a long very long hollow wave. Each and every shot i saw from this place drove me crazy.
So i started to check how to get there, which wind could be good, which swell would work…
Lost in the desert, The wave rolls directly from the roaring forties. Sharks, seals, permits : A real challenge to get there, and to score.
You need a specific forecast, and sometimes it won’t happen. I was dreaming of that wave every day. When i saw that swell coming i couldn’t sleep anymore, plane ticket, guide, permit… 2 days later i was there. Like in my dreams i had the pleasure to play with it…

New KSP Tour Manager Hits Maui Hawaii

KSP World Tour manager Terry McKenna recently travelled to Maui to discuss the upcoming season with KSP President Kristin Boese and several key riders including former and current world champions Airton Cozzolino (ITA/North, 2011 World Champion) and Keahi de Aboitiz (AUS/Cabrinha, 2012 World Champion).

Terry discussed venues and technical aspects of the upcoming season and looked at ways to push this exciting genre of wave riding to the next level.

“I think that this could be one of the fastest movers in the actions sports market” said McKenna.

“The technical aspect of kite control combined with the pure grace of surfing puts this sport in a powerful position,” he added.

McKenna will be using his vast collection of global contacts to source new venues for the KSP as the tour enters its third competition season.

“Seeing guys like Airton & Patri riding in Maui really gave me a great first hand look at the cutting edge of the sport, and I was so impressed.” said McKenna.

The 2013 KSP Calendar will be launched on Feb 1st and behind the scenes the team is busy looking at new venues and formats for the upcoming season.

A recent poll on facebook asked fans which venues they would like to see the tour head to and Portugal’s Guincho Beach came out on top, closely followed by Ponta Preta on Cape Verde and One Eye on Mauritius – a clear indication that both “down the line” power surfing as well as the progressive aerial side of the sport is important to the fraternity.

KSP Strong Wind Graces Day 8 Of The Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro Maui Hawaii

Kahului, Hawaii – December 6, 2012: The Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro saw strong side-offshore winds and consistent head high surf today on day 8 of the 10-day holding period. Men’s and women’s round 1 was completed as well as 7 heats of men’s round 2.

KSP Strong Wind Graces Day 8 Of The Ho'okipa Kite Surf Pro Maui Hawaii

In a 10AM rider’s meeting, contest directors officially announced the implementation of the KSP’s alternate “short dingle elimination” ladder. Used for the first time in a KSP competition today, the short dingle elimination was originally designed in conjunction with the riders to reduce competition time to ensure an event result when conditions do not permit the use of the standard double consolidation ladder.

Competition kicked off in the early afternoon with the last remaining heat of men’s round 1, pitting local Maui boy and current KSP World Championship Tour points leader Patri Mclaughlin (HI, North) against Kevin “Top Hat” Senn (HI) and Jakop Appel (DEN). With his world title hopes on the line, Mclaughlin prevailed in a nerve-racking, but relatively low scoring heat.

Women’s round 1 saw some hotly contested battles, but no major upsets in the world title race. Local wildcard Moona Whyte (HI, Cabrinha) continued to impress with the highest heat score total of the women’s competition thus far, a 14.17. Other riders advancing from women’s round 1 included Ninja Bichler (GER, North), Kirsty Jones (GBR, North) and Jalou Langeree (NED, Naish).

In round 2 of the men, reigning KSP World Champion Airton Cozzolino later (ITA, North) nailed the highest heat score of the day with a 15.83 two-wave combined total. Male riders advancing out of round 2 included world number 3 Sebastain Ribeiro (BRA), (CPV, F-One) as well as Guilly Brandao (BRA), Stephan De Figueiredo (BRA), Keahi De Aboitiz (AUS, Cabrinha) and Filippe Ferreira (BRA, F-One). Competition was called off for the day falling short of just one heat of men’s round 2.

Hookipa Kite Surf Pro Maui Hawaii Epic Surf Continues On Day 7

Kahului, Hawaii – December 4, 2012: Following another windless morning on Maui’s North Shore, the Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro World Championship final got underway in the early afternoon in gusty wind and clean, overhead surf. Today saw incredible action and the near-completion of men’s round 1.

“The wind conditions were not ideal with the wind being lighter than usual and slightly offshore”, said local rider and hometown favorite Cruser Putnam (HI, Cabrinha) following his second place finish in his round 1 heat. “But that was still definitely the best kitesurfing I’ve seen at Ho’okipa.”

Today’s highest heat score came from tour standout Mitu Monteiro (CPV, F-One) with a 16.17 two-wave total. Riding forehand on his natural stance, Monteiro dominated his round 1 heat with solid hacks and vertical top to bottom surfing. Other heat winners in round 1 included Sebastian Ribeiro (BRA), Guilly Brandao (BRA), Airton Cozzolino (ITA, North), Stephan De Figueiredo (BRA), Keahi De Aboitiz (AUS, Cabrinha), Filippe Ferreira (BRA, F-One).

The final heat of Men’s round 1 was abandoned due to deteriorating wind conditions late in the afternoon. All forecasts point to a significant increase in wind strength heading into the weekend and a slight decrease in swell height. When competition resumes, hometown favorite and current KSP World Tour points leader Patri Mclaughlin (HI, North) will face Kevin “Top Hat” Senn (HI) and Jakop Appel (DEN).

“Anytime there’s an easterly component in the wind, you have to expect that Maui will deliver”, said KSP live stream commentator Ben Meyer. “It was great to finally see the guys and girls out there ripping at the point. The forecast looks very promising to finish the event in stellar conditions.”

Advancing from the men’s local wildcard qualification rounds were Tiago Candelot 1st, Olivier Sautet 2nd, and Kevin “Top Hat” Senn 3rd. On the women’s side, Oahu native Moona Whyte turned heads with an outstanding performace in her wildcard qualification heat and will join 2nd place local wildcard qualifier Kalia Aguera in the main women’s draw.

Following the action-packed qualification rounds, men’s round 1 got underway. Heat 1 saw world number 3 and world title contender Sebastian Ribeiro (BRA) advance over Tiago Candelot (LWC) and Bastien Bollard (FRA, Ozone) with precisely executed turns and flowing rides, earning him the highest heat score of the competition thus far, a 14.93 combined two-wave total.

Men’s heat 2 between Mitu Monteiro (CPV, F-One), Sky Solbach (USA, North) and Shawn Richman (HI, Naish) was abandoned due to deteriorating winds. Following a brief holding pattern, the Ho’okipa Kite Surf Pro was called off for the day to wait for better conditions to resume competition tomorrow.
