  • Measured in seconds shooting through an epic barrel; in minutes shaved off your fastest downwinder; or in the hours taken to finally pull off that next big trickno matter how diverse, how thrilling, or how fleeting, each significant experience comes down to one unforgettable moment. Its those moments, coupled with the lasting feeling that lingers long after the moments have passed, that we all live for. Whatever the purpose, whatever the condition, were compelled to make memories on the water.

    Since 1979, Naish has been crafting the tools for you to heighten each and every one of those cherished moments. Fine-tuning every curve, edge and seam along the way, each product is thoughtfully constructed, not only to excel in the moment, but to stand the test of time.

    Driven by a passion for the sport and a thirst to innovate, Naish fuses the talent of top engineers and athletes with cutting edge technologies and premium materials. The result is a wide range of SUP, windsurfing, kiting and surfing products developed to suit the individual needs of anyone from the seasoned professional, to the weekend warrior, to someone just getting their toes wet for the first time.

    Whatever the reason, whatever the impulse, wherever the water takes you . . . this is your moment. Make it extraordinary.

    Torsion transmission to entire LE and low drag on water for relaunch.

    The arc generates maximum projected area for power and lift while the swept design provides precision turning, control and ideal relaunch capabilities.

    The profiles depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast-flying, stable kite with less back stalling. The center sections generate power, thanks to a deeper profile, while the flatter profile in the tips minimizes drag and allows for faster turning.

    Consistent forward drive + maximum depower + no back-stalling.

    All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load and spread it higher into the canopy. This design helps prevent fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.

    Added reinforcement on the wing tip area spreads the heavy load created by the Torch and Park HD perfectly throughout the entire canopy of the kite.

    Stability at different angles of attack for consistent forward drive and lift.

    Sheeted in Sheeted out

    Trailing edge reinforcement for reduced flutter and canopy sheer/wear.

    Lightweight, light wind performance + faster turning.

    One-way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation.

    Increased rigidity in wing tip for sharper turning.

    The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to accurately form the kites arc.

    Eliminates the pulley, keeping the kite stable and driving forward.

    The power foil canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.

    This wing tip geometry decreases the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, greatly reducing drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.

    The Compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal re-launch capabilities.

    The swept open C-shape maximizes the lift of the C-kite airframe. Its open arc delivers more power on demand than other kites of the same size and provides unmatched upwind performance. The swept profile balances the kite for better turning.

    The swept compact C-shape blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, it provides ideal relaunch capabilities.

    This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift. The non-swept outline aligns the center of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times, resulting in power through the turn.

    The wing tip features a
