We’ve added another top brand to our shop lineup and we are pretty excited about it!
Welcome to Elite Watersports, Naish Kiteboarding!
The Naish product release for 2019 is going to hit the market with a force and we’ve got it all in stock. Check it out:
Stand-Out Product: PIVOT
Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14
Winner of 2018 Red Bull’s King of the Air, the Pivot is direct, versatile and efficient, maintaining its stand out performer status in the Naish kite line. Perfect for both novice and professional kiters alike, the Pivot provides plenty of sheet-in-and-go, predictable power, direct bar pressure, easy jumping and control in the air. The superior choice for versatile performance, the Pivot maintains a large wind range, proving dynamic and responsive in everything from waves to flat water.
It has earned an impressive reputation for its intuitive steering and tight, quick axis of rotation and the 2019 Pivot continues to push its capabilities even further. With the Quad-Tex material, we have managed to remove heavy dacron panels along the struts reducing weight while retaining canopy rigidity. The leading edge seam has also been “beefed-up” with a new thread that has tested off the charts in overall strength. The new Pivot also comes with Bladder Lock, which eliminates the risk of bladder movement in the leading edge and struts to ensure they stay in place when inflating, deflating, crashing or packing.
While the Pivot has received various tweaks and improvements that enhance the performance characteristics, it continues to stay true to its loyal following and remains as one of the most sought-after kites worldwide.
Stand-Out Product: THRUST KITE FOIL – ABRACADABRA
Standard Mast Size: 90 cm | Aspect Ratio: 6.5 | Wingspan: 25.3″/64.2 cm | Projected Surface Area: 600 cm2
Forgiving and user-friendly, the Thrust Kite Foil Complete delivers a super smooth foiling experience for anyone from beginner to advanced to cruise on. Its segmented front wing combines the stability of a dihedral shape with the early take-off and low-speed lift of an anhedral wing. Tuned for balance, this foil setup reduces pumping time by helping riders quickly find a stable plane and lock-in, while the higher aspect ratio lengthens the glide. A large sweet spot delivers ample stability for a more natural feel that encourages riders to move more freely and gain the confidence to progress. Smooth gliding and incredibly intuitive, this effortless setup will free your attention to enjoy the experience and expand your abilities.
The Abracadabra Plate connection makes it quick and effortless to detach and store your separated board and foil. One screw is all it takes to quickly and easily disconnect the entire foil system from your board, while the bottom of the plate can remain in place. Just a few turns of a #3 Phillips head screwdriver yields a secure and tight connection between foil and board. The Abracadabra Plate is available in the complete set or as an aftermarket item for any current and previous Naish aluminum mast and is also offered as an accessory for the carbon mast.
