I used my new Naish MK4 WingSurfer wing today..

Very different.. bigger tubes.. stiffer.. much more power.. and I love the new handles.

DJ I think you edited that part out  : )

Ha.. yeah.. you have to be quick.

I figured no one wants to see an old man groveling to his feet.. Letís see more breach-faceplants.. : )

You can see at the start of this vid I also need to stand using my hands and not do the traditional kneel start.. A few years ago it wouldnít have been a problem but getting old is something you just have to live with and at least Iím lucky that I donít have any knee pain..

Last week I got to try my new MA foil.. I really liked it.

Iím rapt about Austin joining Naish and it will be very interesting to see if he has any influence on the development of the Naish gear..

I struggled with the early Thrust foils but once the new Jet range evolved Iíve seen a continual improvement and Iím loving the current stuff..

The new Matador LT wings are awesome.. Hereís a resent vid from my local beach..

My friend Rob has the new LE (limited edition) Naish Hover shown at the beginning of this vid from yesterday at Dromana beach.

Thanks.. Iím also 65 and Iím also loving my big 125L Naish Hover..
I struggle with kneeling starts (my knees say no) and like the extra stability of a bigger board.. For me itís more about fun and ease and try to avoid the frustration and difficult part of learning to foil.. Naish have new shapes coming with their winging boards so I might be tempted to go slightly smaller next time.

Last week at Sandy Point (Oz) using my new 6m Matador LT in very light wind (5-10 knots)

Can you remove the blade and shorten it from the blade end?  Then you wouldn't have to worry about the taper.

No..Not an option.

Iíve done it a few times with that type of paddle.. Just cut it first.. Then try and remove the short piece of shaft from the handle without destroying the handle (sometimes boiling it to soften the epoxy helps) and you may need to make the hole in the handle slightly bigger due to the slight taper on the shaft and then glue the handle back on using an epoxy glue.. I use the 5 min type but just make sure the handle is facing the right way with the curve into your palm and straight side against your fingers.. You can make sure itís 100% straight but placing it on a flat surface before the glue sets.. You may be able to contact Kialoa or a Kialoa dealer and buy a replacement handle but they have not used that type for many years now.. Good luck with it.

My first session on my new 4m Matador LT at my new local beach..

Naish initially wanted to make wings with a huge wind range so only one or two wings are needed.. But as people wanted more and more power the wind range becomes less and less.. The new V4 Wingsurfers will have so many sizes in half meter increments (eg 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5 etc) and they will be even more power than the current Matador.. Exciting time for Naish.

Yesterday in my neck of the woods..

Itís summer here..  8)

Hover 125.. 5m Matador and HA1400 foil.
