Inside the Mind of a Foil designer: Naish's Nils Rosenblad
Naish is one of those companies, and few would argue that Naish are the current market leaders in producing Kite foils, SUP foils and Wind foils that are easy to ride, perform incredibly well, and stand up to the abuse that learners will throw at their first foil.
To design their new Thrust Kite foil, they got Nils Rosenblad behind a computer and gave him a stack of new technology to use. From the software they’re using to design it, to the materials they’re using, and of course the airfoils that make a foil fly; it’s all the best in the industry.
Drop by your local kite store to see one for real (they're just arriving in the country now), and see what Nils has to say about his creation, the 2018 Naish Thrust Kite foil below!
