Naish release new season range of surfboards
Naish Kitesurfing have just released it's line up of boards, and there is a well thought out range of boards. The hardest part is zoning in on which board you want. Would be great to have one of each, right?
The new range of kitesurfing boards are the Global, Skater, Goto, Strapless Wonder and Gecko.
The Global is a fast & furious dedicated waveboard. Say no more.
The Skater, as you can imagine, is a freestyle board which is a lot more forgiving and fun on smaller waves, as well as ideal for all those strapless airs you'll be practising the summer, right? It's got more float so you can get around those closeout sections which are such a regular feature of beach breaks.
The Goto looks to fit in between the Global and the Skater - it's got the wave shape, but also the volume and forgiveness of the Skater. Whilst it's not perfectly adapted to either, it's niche is being able to hang in their when the waves are pumping, and yet still be fun when the waves are small.
The Strapless Wonder .. doesn't even have an option for straps! The deck is contoured for you stomping your hooves all over it; the outline is forgiving to keep you planing when you run out of waves or wind, and again - great for airs.
Last but not least is the Gecko - an interesting variant! Naish say "we set off to create a strapless only board made for kiters who prefer a directional over a twin tip but primarily ride flatwater or choppy spots.." .. sounds fun. They all sound fun.
They all come in many different sizes, and constructions which, if you have the coin (or the passion, but not the coin), you might be able to go the full Carbon version.
