Naish 2020 Kites

Current Trends
What are the main trends for 2019 in the kite market, in terms of riding styles (freestyle, freeride, foil, wave…) and riding locations (ocean vs lakes, rivers, wave parks)? Where have you seen the biggest growth so far in 2019?
99% of UK kitesurfing is on the Ocean as access to inland venues is extremely limited for kitesurfing. Foiling continues to attract many kitesurfers as a way to get on the water more and with the rise of Surf Foiling, SUP foiling and wing surfing customers are looking for multisport foils (Low aspect surf style foils) as they are accessible and can be used multi disciplin. The main freeride market has enjoyed the rise of WOO and the challenge of getting higher jumps.

Our Pivot kite is now seen as ticking the boxes for most people regardless of level or style. It is a do it all machine and most importantly is easy to use for everyone so you are always surprised with what you can achieve on it.

Aesthetics / Pro Riders
How important is it to your brand to have Pro Models and how much freedom do the pros have in terms of graphics? And in terms of design?
We have the KL Pro to specifically meet the requirements of Kevin Langeree who always rode the Monarch. The KL Pro just brings Kevins refinements to the Monarch so he can have the board just how he likes it. Many people respect Kevin and his riding style so with this board they can ‘ride like Kevin’.
