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.

Kiteworld #65 – Coming Together

The tour of kitesurfing’s meccas continues for the Kiteworld editorial team as they hit the northeast coast of Brazil. First stop is the small village of Cumbuco 45 minutes northwest of Fortaleza that struck gold in terms of kiting tourism when it became apparent that there aren’t many places in the world with such a staggeringly consistent seven to eight month wind season. Thousands visit here for the long golden beaches, choice of lagoons and endless downwinders. The kids here grew up surrounded by kiteboarding, and it shows.

In issue #65 we feature a ride guide for Cumbuco, and in issue #66 we’ll be taking a look at some more of the riding delights further north. The wind is already taking on its clockwork tendencies and set to blow every day until at least the end of January!

Another area that’s just about to come into season is South Africa. We also offer advice on traveling to Langebaan, a stunning flat water playground 90 minutes north of Cape Town and throw a further lure out in the form of a Cape Town freestyle gallery from Jens Hogenkamp.

Adam Super is an incredibly technical and analytical rider that we met in the States. Living in Hatteras and working for Kitty Hawk Kites, Adam gets to kite nearly every day, but also gets to watch streams of kiters of all levels come through the school as students and freeriders, with both good habits and bad. He starts a column this issue focused on helping you understand how to go about learning how to learn. If you need inspiration to go huge, check out our interview with Toby Braeuer about his new Airstyle DVD with 666 tricks!

We also hear from Brianna Hirsch-Pollitt, a 19-year-old woman for whom kiteboarding gave such strength in rebuilding her life after being diagnosed with non-hodgkin lymphoma when she was 17, culminating in her attending the Kiteboarding 4 Cancer mega event in Hood River in July this year.

You will also find out about Poul Rasmussen in Jason Gallate’s regular To Love, To Kite column. Poul was literally a ‘Great Dane’ – a man who literally lived to kitesurf until he was 88. Our doctor in the house looks into finding the lessons we can learn from Poul to help us all push beyond the norm.

All that, plus: flow better in waves with the downloop, Reo at Teahupoo, Shinn and Hadlow columns, Readers’ Gallery, the sport’s best images from the last couple of months and more!

Sir Richard Branson is set to join 300+ riders who will attempt to break the record for the biggest group downwinder along the south coast of the UK, from Hayling Island to Lancing.
