EVENT RECAP: Kiebler Brothers Represent Top Youth at 2016 German Kitesurf Masters

The first event of the 2016 German Kitesurf Masters was held on the German island of Sylt from May 11-16. The event consisted of a Slalom race, Freestyle, and Big Air event. Team Naish riders and brothers, Xaver Kiebler, 16, and Jakob Kiebler, 17, competed in all three events. Xaver came out victorious in the Slalom Race and fourth in Big Air with Jakob finishing in second in Freestyle.

Winning the Slalom race, the new format being adopted for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, is Xaver’s ultimate goal. After a series of perfect starts and fast riding on his Naish 14m Torch Xaver was able to finish in first—one step closer to making it to the 2018 Olympics!

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT: Trip – Foil/Underpowered Riding

Sizes: 8,10,12

Low wind; no problem! The Naish Trip excels in underpowered conditions. Perfect for dedicated intermediate-to-advanced riders, the incredibly lightweight, strutless design delivers the wind range of a larger kite while retaining the fast, precision turning of a smaller kite. An ideal fit for foiling, the Trip’s responsive depower and light weight—compared to other kites of this size—supports seamless transitions for a smooth ride. Log more days on the water with the Trip.

      First and foremost, we’re boardriders. We love what we do and we do what we love.
      Inspired by the collective efforts of the industry’s top talent, Naish has been pioneering advancement in kiteboarding from the very beginning. Two decades later, we’re committed to progression and take each launch as an opportunity to push the envelope.
      In the midseason, we’re stoked to unveil two brand new kites, a new board and our latest tech innovations, which elevate already tried and true favorites.
      This line offers you the power to perform, freedom to discover your unique riding style, instinctive control and the ability to get out on the water when no one else can. See what you can accomplish when you ride Naish. Get More. Do More.

      SIZES: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
      Adaptable and forgiving, the Boxer blends efficiency and innovation, creating the perfect setup to uncover your personal riding style. Its single luff strut combines the best characteristics of strutless and strutted kite designs. The strut’s relaxed connection to the canopy creates a dynamic structure, allowing the canopy to freely expand and contract, while maintaining the strength of a strutted framework to handle heavier loads with ease. An outstanding underpowered kite, the Boxer is incredibly easy to relaunch, light to the touch and responsive but gentle. The takeaway: the Boxer is eager to please, easy to control and supportive enough to explore your own style.

      If the words, “fast” and “intense” are part of your everyday vocabulary, then this is the kite for you. Designed for more engaged riders, the Dash is a powerful performer for any advanced kiter with the skills to unlock its strengths. Ultra responsive, the Dash is designed for those who push the limits and refuse to follow a straight line.

      Year after year the Ride continues its legacy of being a kiters best friend with its sheet in and go performance and price point that doesn’t break the bank. While the Ride is a great kite for people in the earliest stages of kiting, it’s not a kite that is easily outgrown and provides kiters the performance they need no matter what their experience.

      SIZE: 17
      Rethink lightwind riding. Lightweight and tremendously fast for a kite of its size, the Fly delivers a smooth, yet powerful ride in light-to-marginal wind conditions, letting you ride like it’s any other windy day. For 2017/18, we modified the leading edge diameter allowing the kite to fly farther forward for improved upwind ability and easy handling. Remove the term “too light” from your vocabulary and get on the water with the Fly.

      SIZE: 5’9”
      Positioned to bridge the gap between the Global and Skater, the Go-To offers an incredible range of performance on a stable, easy to ride platform. With a slightly wider outline than the Global, the Go-To delivers solid performance in marginal winds and features a large sweet spot. Whether you want down-the-line kiting perfection or easy cruising, this board is your go to.

      In 2017 Naish introduced the world to Quad-Tex, the strongest, stiffest canopy material on the market featuring 4x-reinforced ripstop. With the launch of the 2017/18 kite collection, we are stoked to keep the innovations coming with our all new Shark Teeth Trailing Edge. Made with Quad-Tex, this strategically placed triangular swath minimizes weight while buffering and dispersing canopy flutter to reduce wear on the leading edge and enhance durability. To put it in simpler terms, our kites are lighter, stronger and have an even longer lifespan.
