Aloha from Naish!
Introducing the new midseason kite range from Naish. Whether you want the ultimate foiling and light wind weapon, high-end freestyle performance with added freeride versatility or simply a kite that puts a smile on your face every session, Naish has what you’re looking for with the new Boxer, Dash and brand new Triad.
Built with our industry-leading construction, Naish Kiteboarding continues to march forward and progress the sport the same way we have for the past 20 years: to make every day on the water a good one, no matter the conditions.
Instinctive control, intuitive riding, the Triad is the right kite for 99% of the population. Its easy-to-use platform is designed to allow you to progress your skills quickly and be a better kiter.
The new Triad is much more than an evolution of the Ride; it’s been redesigned and re-engineered. We’ve taken the original iconic user-friendly design and developed it further to be even more versatile and provide a whole new riding experience. This new, three-strut frame offers greater stability. The centre luff strut creates excellent low-end power, allowing the kite to drift and providing great sheet-in-and-go. The stiffer centre also increases the Triad’s wind range, providing improved handling in stronger winds and gusty conditions. It also allows us to move the two outer struts lower for a more direct bar feel and improved turning ability. Its low aspect ratio and gradual curve in the wingtip produce smooth turns and very predictable flying. This is perfect for anyone who prefers steady movements over a more punchy kite.
Mistakes are minimal with the Triad, so no need to worry if you oversheet it, dive it too hard, or overfly your kite. It also has great wing stability when resting on the water—so you have plenty of time to make adjustments before relaunching. Smooth-flying, stable and forgiving, the Triad gives riders plenty of time to react and plenty of room to grow, so you’re in complete control at all times.
From complete beginners to kiters looking to improve, to those seeking an easy-riding experience, anyone looking for an easy to control kite will enjoy the Triad.

The kite for anywhere, the Boxer is the ultimate kite for underpowered riding and foiling. The single luff strut and Quad-Tex construction create a lightweight framework that stays in the air easily—even in super light wind.
With its light pull, lightweight and light input, the Boxer is the ultimate kite for underpowered riding and foiling. The single luff strut and Quad-Tex construction create a lightweight framework that stays in the air easily—even in super light wind. This eliminates any struggle to keep the kite up, so you can keep your focus on foiling. When sheeting out, it quickly offers a lot of depower in a shorter throw. This keeps the kite from pulling too much and feels as if it almost disappears. Its lightweight load pulls more through the bar than through the harness, for more direct steering. And because it’s so responsive to lighter inputs, lighter riders and foilers can easily make micro-adjustments without being thrown off-balance. This year we worked on making the kite even lighter.
Each size has saved up to 280 g, making the boxer the lightest kite on the market. All these precious grams saved translate to weight the wind does not need to carry anymore and creates a more efficient kite for your session. Available in sizes as small as 2.8 meters, the Boxer is built for foiling.
It’s such a great all-around performer that larger sizes do well during light wind twin tip riding too! If you’re foiling, riding underpowered, or have lighter input, the Boxer will let you push the boundaries of light wind.

This kite flies fast, turns fast and has a powerful and “punchy” feel. For advanced kiters who want to take their kiteloops to the next level check out the Dash.
Advanced kiters looking for a fast and powerful kite will be stoked on the Dash. Simply put, this kite flies fast, turns fast and has a powerful and “punchy” feel. The C-shape, small leading edge and relatively flat profile create strong pull immediately, which is a huge benefit for riders looking to jump high. The Dash not only turns fast, but it also completes them nicely too. Anyone looking to pull off a killer kite loop will benefit from its superior turning performance. This newest model features a new bridle geometry creating a much better low end for more consistent power in gusty conditions.
Those looking to ride unhooked will find its forward flying ability and power to perform similar to a Torch, as it offers great pop and slack.
