THRUST WS 1 FOIL & HOVER FOILBOARDS
Brand new for 2018, Naish introduces an all-new line of dedicated foil windsurfing products, designed to bring another level of fun and excitement to lightwind sailing. The Thrust WS 1 is a revolutionary new foil providing unmatched lift and stability to get sailors up and foiling in the lightest winds imaginable. Drawing inspiration from the Thrust Surf and Thrust KS 1, this modular foil can easily be transformed for different uses. Complimenting the Thrust WS 1 is a series of boards that perform in a variety of ways. Whether you desire a dedicated foiling setup, like the Hover 122, or a board that serves multiple uses, like the Hover 120 Crossover, the new Naish Foil line has you covered to keep you stoked and on the water.
For 2018 we are pleased to introduce the brand new Lift sail, made specifically for light wind foiling. Utilizing ultra-lighweight materials, the Lift delivers the low-end power to get sailors up and foiling yet still luffable to dump power when it isn't needed. For years the Force has set the performance standard for wave sails and with both four and five batten models it continues to prove itself globally. With technologies like our exclusive CARBONTECH construction, we’re constantly refining our sails not only to make them as light as possible, but to make them tougher and more responsive to give sailors like you the ultimate advantage in those critical moments. High-end features such as titanium clew rings and our Equilibrium Batten System—which perfectly balances loads from front to back for smoother rotation and increased durability—all work together to maximize your sailing experience, year after year.
Since 1979 Naish has been at the forefront of windsurf board design. Lightweight, durable and engineered for optimum performance, Naish windsurf boards are designed to meet the needs of elite riders and put world-class performance in the hands of weekend warriors. With one of the most iconic wavesailing spots in the world just minutes away from our global headquarters, the Hardline provides exceptional performance for intermediate sailors to the top professionals in the world. The Global is the most versatile Naish waveboard, delivering the necessary planing power to excel in everything from lightwind to the toughest onshore conditions, while retaining the playfulness and speed to feel natural in a wide variety of wave conditions. Our Kailua range brings Naish quality to beginners and schools. No matter what your skill level or where you are sailing, there's a Naish board designed to take you to the next level.
