State-of-the-art C-kite for competition freestyle, power freeriding and unhooked waveriding.
Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14
The Torch flies quickly through the air and will depower easily with a quick check of the board edge. Power is delivered smoothly, with depower similar to a bridled kite by virtue of the kite’s ability to fly fast. Whether you are hooked in or unhooked, riding is effortless and precise. The position of the kite’s struts makes it stiffer in the air, for even more precise handling.
- Precise bar feel
- Unmatched unhooked qualities
- Fast response flying
- Solid power through the turns
- Kite of choice for pro riders
1. Bigger LE diameter on sizes 5 to 8:
- Reduced LE torsion
- Slower turning speed
2. 3D LE definition on sizes 9 to 14:
- Allows for easier LE torsion
- Faster turning speed
3. Smaller diameter and shorter control bar:
- Better handling and a forgiving feel

Power Foil Canopy
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 the airfoil. The center sections generate power and speed. The tips are fast turning and minimize drag. This creates a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling.
Low Drag Wing Tip
This wing tip geometry reduces the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, which greatly reduces drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.
The wing tip features a flow through window, which reduces static friction and allows for easy relaunch by letting water drain instantly.
Octopus Inflation System
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.
Radial Load Distribution
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.
LWR (Light Wind Relaunch)
With all the new options available in light wind boards, riders are pushing the envelope of what is considered rideable. The new LWR (Light Wind Relaunch) gives the rider complete confidence when going out in the lightest of wind. This system lifts the wing tip independent of the rear leader line, and cups the trailing edge for instant relaunch. The LWR works when nothing else will.
Solid Frame Construction
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.
Radial Segmented Arc
The Radial Segmented Arc generates the arc using short linear segments to accurately form the kite’s
From bladders to stitching, every Naish kite has been meticulously checked to pass the highest quality control in the industry. Every detail is scrutinized before the kite leaves the factory, to produce a product you can trust.
