Naish Park 2014 Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
Naish Park 2014:
The Naish Park 2014 offers freeride simplicity. Designed for riders who are looking for simple, no-fuss performance. The Park is a performance-focused kite, condensed into an easy, simple package.
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 new 2014 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.
The Park’s three-strut design is stable and responsive. This configuration, combined with a powerful profile and full outline gives the Park the consistent pull of a “C” type kite and the power control of a swept kite. The swept leading-edge positions the wingtips behind the centre of the kite, which gives the kite easy relaunch capabilities and maximizes depower.
For 2014 Naish have focused on the low-end power delivery without losing any of the light, crisp feel. LE percentage and profile depth have been tuned to improve the low-end pull. Naish also slightly reduced the sweep in order to get the overall platform closer to a real classic C-shape. To maintain the relaunch characteristics, Naish slightly extended the wing tips, to keep the same leverage on the overall kite when the rider pulls on the back line. The rider can expect earlier planing without sacrificing handling. The bar feel is crisper, which means the rider can better feel what the kite is doing and can steer it with precision. The relaunch is also improved over last year’s edition.
The “do everything” nature of the Park opens up a huge range of performance options for the rider. It is the perfect tool whether you are focusing on sticking that handle-pass rotation, bashing the lip or maximizing your freeride time out on the water.
The Naish Park 2014 uses patented design features including Power Foil Canopy. This increase performance at different levels and creates an amazing step forward in kite performance.
Swept Compact C:
Blends the pop and lift of a C-kite with the power, control and turning of a swept leading edge kite. In addition, the Swept Compact C-shape also provides ideal relaunch capabilities.
The profile's depth and shape evolves along the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
Drag Wing Tip:
The more efficient the lift / drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air, which allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.
The Naish exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure in the struts does not change during turns.
These seams carry most of the load, and spread it higher into the canopy.
This construction avoids fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.

Having flown these for some time now, I can confirm the hype! Performance when you want it with a smooth manageable kite when you don't!
These kites do everything - surf, freestyle, big airs, handles gusty conditions and when you do drop it out of the sky - easy relaunch.
In essence the Park is a Naish Torch with the wing tips cut off so when you pull the bar in for big airs or unhooked, the profile turns into a Torch!
I have had the 12m out from 12 knots and the 8m in 50 knots plus! The beauty of these kites is that a complete novice can even take these kites out to learn on with the let-go safety and easy relaunch.
If you want a kite to grow into as you progress, don't disregard the Park! It's a great kite with the ability to grow with you as you progress with the added benefit of long or short lines giving the kite great versatility for any side of the sport. Buy one and you won't be disappointed!
These kites are awesome! I had tried a number of different brands over the previous two years. Out of the several top brands I tried, these were by far the best. I was after a solid freeride kite that I can do everything on and this kite just delivers on all levels. They fly and turn very quick and have lots and lots of power!
I am 16 stone and can fly the 10m from 15 knots up to 30 and the 7 from 25 to whatever my nerve will let me, but have been out in 50+ gusts and been fine. Oh and they are very light on the bar, which is something I love as i can stay out longer before the arms have had it.
I bought the 2012 when they came out last Aug/Sept and well definitely be replacing them with new Parks in 2013.
