Freestyle is a very demanding kiteboarding discipline. Apart from talent, hard training and adrenaline it requires top performance gear. And if you already have a good freestyle kite, you need to take a lok at the 2009 Naish Thorn. The board blends awesome pop with top control and it performs outstanding in a wide range of wind and wave conditions. It is constructed using some of the successful features of the previous models and tweaked with new enhancements which make it even more efficient.

The compact shape of the board, featuring a rounded outline provides excellent speed and acceleration as well as a very smooth glide. A new rocker line and a new bottom shape have been used to improve the upwind and planning abilities of the board. At the same time these features provide an optimal power release and super stability.

The board accelerates really fast and reaches an intense top speed, but it feels very steady and it is easy to handle. The massive pop allows the extreme rider to perform amazing tricks, while the extra stability and precise control gives the less experienced rider confidence to try new moves. The perfect balance between control, speed and power makes the board a great choice for freestyle competitions as well as for fun rides. The Naish Thorn uses a new G10 fin setup which prevents drag at high speeds and increases the grip in tight turns. Excellent comfort throughout the entire ride is provided by the Grav-D footstrap system.

Naish has engineered the Thorn using a Tip2Tip Wood core and NASA Tech 2 laminate layups. This construction assures a light weight and extra durability and generates a very responsive flex. To experience the ultimate freestyle thrill you must try the Naish Thorn.
