Naish UK...where are you ?

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

You can get the kites but as said no harnesses that's really surprising also a nightmare getting spares in the uk been looking for a 2012 14m park bladder naish USA on their website won't ship them nearest place is airtime Netherlands and that's only a generic one really do need a uk naish parts and accessories supplier if there is one I can't seem to find it either?

BBR started stocking Naish last year. If they don't have them in stock they should be able to order one in

I know they had them in stock but would not ship out of continental America instead put me on to a European dealer not uk and they said it would be about 6 weeks delivery surely easier just to post from the USA pay the import tax and it would be here in 5 to 10'days.

Personally, I'd buy a brand that is easy to obtain with decent representation or distribution in the UK! Theres plenty of good harnesses out there from other brands. I'd like to know that if I had a problem I could get it sorted via my retailer! Not just harnesses, boards kites etc
Two threads like this running at once! Times are changing!!

If you want bladders for any brand just order from Wanikou in France. They have the exact specs supplied by the manufacturers and build to order within a week. Kite manufacturers like Naish don't need to hold stock of spares like bladders which may or may not sell.

We try to stock most of the popular Naish spares, depower lines, lines, bridle spares etc. From our sales, I reckon Naish is a very popular brand amongst kiters, with some great kites and boards in their lineup. The new Parks and Torches are due to land any day now along with the 2015 boards :-D if anyone wants to come down and demo some Naish stuff we have the fly, pivot and park on the water.

Harnesses are a tricky one for a shop, we find harnesses by the accessory brands ion, mystic, Dakine etc, have a broader appeal to kiters than harnesses by a specific kite brand. If you want a Naish harness give mea buzz and I'll get one for you.

It's a shame about Naish harnesses being so hard to get hold of. I used to use them for years until they'd worn out and then find them really hard to replace.

Hi,

Saw your post whilst in Tarifa so popped into B3 who have the largest amount of Naish equipment I have seen. I checked and they stock different Naish harnesses. I asked the guy there and he said that they would post to the UK. So, if you can't get it from a UK supplier (and I would always want to support them in preference to a non Uk dealer) you might want to try them. http://www.b3watersports.com/en/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Cheers

Just got round to fitting new main bladder from wanikou France into my naish park 14m really good quality bladder I would say thicker than the stock bladder service was good ordered it and took just under 2 weeks from order to door reason for this is they make them up to order off to fuertventura on sat so will try it out wind permitting :-D if you do have problems getting a bladder as I did would definitely give these a go.
