Naish’s Hover Surf line has been expanded and refined for 2019 to provide greater performance for anyone from first-time foilers to frequent flyers, thanks to valuable feedback from Naish team riders like Bernd Roediger and Chuck Patterson.
Available in 5’2”, 5’6” and 5’10” lengths, the Hover Surf foilboards have plenty of volume and a flat, early-entry rocker that makes paddling into even the most marginal waves an easy task. Incredibly durable with their epoxy, wood veneer layup, these boards feature two 10” US fin boxes, allowing riders to place the Thrust Surf foil—or any 4-bolt plate-style foil—exactly where they want, based on their size and ability. Once up and foiling, the Hover Surf is stable, easy to control and easy to pump thanks to its compact, progressive shape.
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).
