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.

Richard Branson & Virgin Team Kitesurfing Armada a world record breaking attempt

  • Kitesurfing

Richard Branson and the Virgin team are set to take part in another world record breaking attempt in The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada.

250 kitesurfers will need to successfully complete a one mile course from Hayling Island in the UK to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Kitesurfers ever assembled.

More than 300 kitesurfers have already signed up to the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada, which will raise money for Virgin Unite, Snow-Camp and the RNLI. However, if you would like to join the adventure, add your name to the waiting list.

Richard said: “I’m passionate about kite surfing and I think this is going to be a fantastic and fun event in support of some great causes, certainly the first of its kind and incredibly positive for the sport.

“Virgin are looking forward to entering a team and I am hoping to be there too!”

Dan Charlish, Director of Snow-Camp, added: “Since we launched this event with Lewis Crathern back in April, we have been overwhelmed by the positive response from the kitesurfing community. To now have the support of a global brand like Virgin is truly amazing and hugely positive for the event and the charities we are trying to support.”

The event takes place on either September 14,15,21,22,28 or 29th, depending on wind. Participants will start at Hayling Island before heading off down the coast on their 46 mile journey towards Lancing, checking in at Pagham and Littlehampton along the way.

Can a kiteboarder outrace the new 72-foot catamaran of Oracle Team USA? Kai Lenny decided to give it a go, in San Francisco.

The challenge was simple. Pink slips were on the line when Lenny put his $1,500 kite board up against the $15 million boat.

Kai Lenny got a significant jump out of the starting gate, launching his kite and harnessing the power of the winds to propel himself at 20 knots across the water (23 mph).

This caught Oracle Team USA off guard at first, before they found their rhythm and cranked it up to 30 knots (34 mph) to blow by the kite board.

“He got a really good start, so we just put the hammer down. It’s like bringing a knife to a gun fight”, tells Jimmy Spithill, the skipper of Oracle Team USA.

Oracle Team USA will be looking to defend its America’s Cup title when racing starts September 7, in San Francisco.

“It’s like bringing a knife to a gun fight.” Those were the comments of Jimmy Spithill, the skipper of ORACLE TEAM USA and the defenders of the America’s Cup.

The question was whether kite board champion Kai Lenny can outrace the new 72-foot catamaran of ORACLE TEAM USA.
