While the Hover Surf Comet echos a traditional surfboard silhouette, the Hover Surf Ascend packs more volume per inch (in height). Wider than our Comets, with a more square and parallel outline, the Ascends pick up even the tiniest waves with little effort. The concave deck section is not only more comfortable when paddling, it is also a “self centering” feature when popping up—guiding the feet into the ideal position in relation to the foil.
Based on our Hover Kite 112 kite foilboard, the Ascend range features beveled rails running from nose to tail. These smooth the transition while getting up onto the foil and allow you to carve hard without catching rail.
If catching small waves early and getting to your feet quickly is the key to surf foiling, the Hover Surf Ascend unlocks the ride easily and intuitively. The Hover Ascends are recommended for riders who are looking for a dedicated design that allows them to go shorter (in consideration of volume) without sacrificing paddle ability.
When pairing Naish Hover Foilboards with your Naish Foil, use the screws supplied with the foil.

A bold success from the onset, the Naish Thrust Surf Foil Program welcomes the XL setup to its highly sought-after line-up. Delta shaped front wings coupled with downturned wingtips deliver the perfect balance between early lift, efficient glide and outstanding turning ability. A slightly flat section along the bottom of the wing adds stability in straight flight while downturned wingtips heighten control in turns for easy carving and redirection without losing lift. The back wing helps to stabilize the front wing while providing extra power when pumping through flat sections. Adding to the high lift, efficient design, this wing model offers a larger window before stalling, making them easier to ride and control when compared to other wings on the market.
Three front wing sizes widens the range of rider weights and surfing conditions covered. The new XL adds riders above the 210 pound mark to the foiling club while bringing the threshold for surf size down even further. The XL set is also a great option for downwind conditions. And many pairing options allow riders to perfectly tune their setup to their needs, with the standard backwing pairing well with the M or L front wing and the XL backwing reserved for the XL front wing.
Surfers that dabble in other sports will find a solid multi-sport solution in this setup as well. Performing well in low wind and lower speeds, this ultra-stable setup is good for beginner-to-intermediate kite foiling, windsurfing, wake-foiling and other medium to low speed foiling.
Now configuarable just the way you want it (see options).
