2011 Naish Park 14m


2011 Naish Park 14m


Hey everyone- Happy New Year!!!

Haven't been on the forum for a while, been a crazy few months. Hoping you might be able to help me out with a 2011 Naish Park 14m.

I have a chance to pick one of these up at what seems like a pretty good deal, looking for some feedback on the kite if anyone has any experience.

I'm sill a beginner kiteboard- when I've had good conditions I've been able to ride well and stay upwind, but I've had very few opportunities to do that so far; mostly because my 10m runs out of gas in the light summer winds...

So, I've been looking for a light wind kite, and am wondering if this one might do the trick.

I'm about 150lbs, and would like to be able to ride starting around 13mph or less

Thanks in advance for any help :thumbup:

More of a C-kite, aren't they?

The Naish Fly is a light wind kite... I recommend that - VERY stable and good grunt in light wind, especially for a lighter rider...

That said, the local guy with the Naish quiver uses the Park 14 as his lightwind kite . . . but he IS the junior freestyle champ for Asia or something :)




Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

@Snake- Haven't tried my Phantom on the water yet- but many arc folks have let me know that they are known for their top end not the bottom- besides which, arc sizes are deceptive- I'm pretty sure that Phanny 15m has close to 10m projected area

@Kami- Thanks for the feedback. Park markets the Park as a Hybrid design, which is supposed to give a more "C-kite" feel while still offering much of the depower available in a bow/bridled kite... @ least that's what they say : ) :smilegrin:
