The 2012 Naish Torch Kite flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge.

The position of the struts on the 2012 Naish Torch Kite makes the kite stiffer in the air, for an even more precise handling.
The 2012 Naish Torch Kite is equally at home winning heats on the world stage, as it is ripping up your home beach. The 2012 Naish Torch Kite features refinements to all elements of the package: reinforcements, strut positions and a shorter arc.
2012 Naish Torch Kite Features
2012 Naish Torch Kite Designers Notes
What's New: This year the idea was to make the kite more stable and to add stiffness to the arc. To do this, we looked to the success of the Park and shortened the entire arc and moved both side struts down. This allows the center of the kite to be more full. The lower strut allows for a stiffer profile on the wing tip, making the kite more rigid in the air.
The Result: You get a kite that has a crisper feel in the bar and is more responsive to bar input. This makes overpowered riding smoother. The turns are also better, as the kite shoots back up faster in the kite loop, providing extra pull to land without making a hole in the ocean.

With the 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite while your friends lounge around on the beach soaking up UV-rays, you can be busting out all the tricks in your repertoire, carving up the waves and riding the adrenaline all to yourself. The 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite is fast, powerful, responsive, and a thrill to ride, the 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite has been the proven choice for light wind kiteboarding. All of Blade’s products are famed for their rapid-turning and ultra-responsiveness, and the 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite is by no means an exception. Don’t be fooled by the name - the Fat Lady’s agility and speed will blow you away.
•Super thin LE and 3 struts for quick, direct turning
•Amazing low-end performance
2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Performance
The diameter of the leading edge is smaller than on an ordinary 12m kite. This creates extremely low drag and boosted torsional dynamics to produce a kite that cuts through the air at break-neck speeds without the usual sluggish feel of a bigger kite.
In mid and low AR kites, a three strut design allows steering forces to affect a larger portion of the canopy, re-sulting in quick response and faster turns.
Turning Axis-Mid Pivot Turn
The central turning axis allows medium pivot turns and allows the release of power as needed. This is one of the key characteristics that make it both a great all-around kite as well as ideal for wave riding.
The profile’s shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the tips. This optimizes performance for the different stages flight.
Steep Profile Shape
The new profile shape utilizes the power of the kite more efficiently for better pops and jumps. This also makes the jumping pattern more vertical, as opposed to horizontal, giving you more vertical power and less horizontal drag.
The aggressive profile shape forces the tips of the kite out of the water and to the edge of the window, so there is virtually no work to be done by the rider to get the kite back up in the air.
2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Construction
Additional valve reinforcements were added to firmly fix the patch to the bladder. One from below and one from above. We’ve also purpose-designed a new bladder adhesive to suit the unique requirements of kite construction.
Bridel Attachment Point
Internally constructed, the leading edge has twice as many reinforcement patches. That means larger LE impact loads resistance and additional protection from the constant wear and abrasion.
Molded LE Guards
Molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
We know you like to ride hard. That’s why the Trigger has 25% more Insignia Tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact.
Unique Dacron material used for the leading edge, struts and tips is considerably lighter, but efficiently stronger - thanks to our tried-and-tested, innovative box threading design, which has a more rigid construction and allows for a tighter weave.
Teijin Techno Force
Our top of the line Techno Force canopy material has been a mainstay of our product line for 4 years and has proven to be superior to anything else on the market.
Mad 2 Air Flor System
The specially-designed valve pieces on the Trigger’s one-pump system are 100% foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to ride in no time!

2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Q & A
What is your biggest accomplishment in the Fat Lady?
Three years ago when we first set out to make a light wind kite, we were determined to uphold our reputation of producing fast-turning, dynamic kites. The biggest challenge presented by the Fat Lady was the combination of the kite’s dominating size and the light wind conditions it was going to perform in. After extensive testing in light wind conditions, we designed an especially narrow leading edge. This creates the lively, dynamic ride we were looking for, but it wasn’t easy. We went through extensive engineering and first-hand testing before we produced a light wind kite that delivered usable power, a pronounced pop and efficient upwind performance.
What makes the Fat Lady different from most other light wind kites?
Almost everybody who tests the Fat Lady for the first time is blown away by her quick turning abilities. This is definitely the thing that sets it apart from other light wind kites. This kite genuinely surprises a lot of people when they discover they can perform all their ordinary tricks on such a big kite and in relatively light conditions. We don’t claim we can reproduce the same liveliness as you’d find in a 10m kite in the bigger model, but the Fat Lady proves you can still have bucket-loads of fun with a 17m kite.
What special features did you use?
It’s only when you get up close to the Fat Lady that you truly start to understand just how narrow the LE is. Compared to the Trigger, the LE is the same diameter as the 12m! As a result, there is a huge reduction in drag, creating a much smoother ride. The 3-strut design also isn’t common on a 17m kite and this contributes to the remarkable feeling of agility in the kite and its peerless qualities in performance.

2013 Blade Prime Kite Designer Q & A
What do you feel makes the Prime different from other freestyle kites?
When we began developing the Prime 5 years ago, we wanted to make a very unique kite in terms of delivery. We set out to make a freestyle kite that lets riders push the limits, build progression and increase performance. The point wasn’t to make a mid-level or expert level freestyle kite, but one that will still give you a rush on your 10th, 20th or 50th session and beyond. As you get better, you want a kite that progresses with you and that is exactly the Prime’s protocol.
What were the biggest challenges in designing the Prime?
Making a C kite with only 4 lines while trying to get maximum performance, superior stability and ultra-responsiveness isn’t easy. We always work on the very narrow leading edge and it took us a long time to develop a very unique bridle configuration that we can use on this one-of-a-kind kite. The bridle offers just enough support to the leading edge to make sure that the shape stays intact, but the length is absolutely minimal so you still get the maximum bar directness and intuitive responsiveness you’re looking for in a kite.

2013 Naish Torch Kite Technology
|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 Power Foil Canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.|
|The profile’s depth and shape evolves along B-B the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize A-A drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.|
|The Radial Segmented C-shape generates the C-arc using short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s arc.|
|The-angle-of-attack on the wing tips has been increased to keep them more actively engaged. When bar input is added, the wing tip instantly reacts and produces drag, while the opposite wing tip instantly accelerates. This allows the kite to turn quicker.|
|This proven, quick and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. The Naish exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure in the struts does not change during turns.|
|Every strut is attached to a frame of heavy duty Dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.|
|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 construction avoids fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.|
|The Shift System has the 5th line locked in one direction (at the split of the front line) so that it can only be pulled from the rider’s side. This depowers the kite instantly. It also supports the arc, allowing the Torch to have a small leading-edge diameter for superior performance.|

Ok we can tell the magic formula now. The 2014 Axis Limited Kiteboard has a durable clear TPU foil top and bottom sheet, which is mostly clear to highlight the pure carbon lay-up with screen printed graphics. The finish is super duarable with lasting colour. The rails are made from AXIS ABS. Our ABS material is very tough and is a special formula that bonds very well to epoxy, meaning a very strong construction. The core of each 2014 Axis Limited Kiteboard is strip planked Paulownia wood. Paulownia has the highest strength to weight ratio of any timber, making our cores light and strong. Paulownia is a very fast growing timber and one of the most sustainable timbers on the planet, we use not so limited resources to make the Limited. The laminate is Biaxial lightweight carbon with additional Uni carbon reinforcing. The combination of the carbon lay-up and carbon reinforcements with the Paulownia core provides a very lightweight board with very powerful load ‘n’ pop, super responsive flex with just enough cush to feather landings. The Limited featues the Axis Quad concave to assist tracking the board for better load and explosive pop, directing water during landings and providing longitudinal strength. Its all good!
Sleek, sharp, sophisticated, powerful, responsive, and precise. We have combined these characteristics into our flagship board, the 2014 Axis Limited Kiteboard. Darth Vader is riding this board right now, on a lake, on the Death star, its that Badass. The 2014 Axis Limited Kiteboard is all about performance. We threw in all the chips making this badboy. The care, precision, and knowledge used to design this board is obviously apparent when riding, only the best materials are sourced to give riders who demand the best, the 2014 Axis Limited Kiteboard. We can’t tell you the magic formula of the Limited composition, but we can tell you we have the perfect combination of a Paulownia wood core and super lightweight carbon fibre, to give the most responsive board in our range. Excelling with pads/straps or boots the Limited is our highest performance kiteboard. For 2014 we have given the Limited some plush flex, made it thinner and lighter than its predecessor to maximize your competitive heats, stay high in the box, spin, pass, grab or simply just roll with maximum steez at the home spot.

The combination of the glass and carbon provides a very durable board with great controlled flex for excellent pop.

The 2014 Axis Tranq Kiteboard was designed for Alex Lewis-Hughes to do what he likes best, everything! The 2014 Axis Tranq Kiteboard is an all-rounder board dealing with anything you can throw at it, flat water, wave kickers, sliders, kickers, and park riding. Alex needed a board that had enough rocker to be good off kickers but flat enough to get good pop and speed in shitty wind. No problem! We altered the flex pattern of the Tranq to accommodate heavier landings while keeping moderate rocker for getting up wind and quick plane riding of the daily grind.
This combination allows Alex to continue riding with his smooth effortless equestrian style. The 2014 Axis Tranq Kiteboard has reduced torsional flex giving a direct and responsive board The construction features dual inserts for custom boot placement, P-Tex grindable base like a snowboard making for steezy slides and easy repairs, not forgetting our strong and reliable Paulownia wood core. The tranq is at home behind a kite, or cable, on a slider or kicker, just add boots!
