NAISH HOVER WING FOIL CARBON ULTRA
Our last generation of Hover Wing Foil boards instantly set the standard in design, construction, and weight for the category. This new range of boards is perfectly suited for wing surfing, or to be used as a SUP foil board, SUP downwind foil board, or prone foil surf. Changes include a more overall rail curve in the outline, slightly narrower tail, increased nose rocker, and more pronounced bottom shaping and concave. Multiple foot strap insert positions, including wider stance options, give riders the opportunity to choose between a windsurfing style, double front strap setup, or a single surf style setup. The 60 L, 50 L, and 40 L boards are well suited for surf foiling. The rocker is perfectly balanced so the board flies smoothly parallel to the water surface. Track boxes have been moved further back to better match with the multitude of different foils that riders may pair with the boards. The increased tail kick behind foil boxes combined with the beveled rail guarantees easy take-offs and sufficient clearance in turns.
The carbon ultra layup, which now includes extra rail cap reinforcements and Kevlar patches in high-stress areas, gives these boards the lightweight edge, minimizing swing weight and enhancing overall performance.
The board selector below is a rough guide to help determine Hover Wing Foil board size based on rider weight and skill level. We consider a “beginner” a rider who has no previous board sport experience.
Keep in mind that additional factors, such as wind conditions, foil, and Wing-Surfer size will play an important role in the selection of the right board size.
Generally, we recommend erring on the side of a floatier board with a volume that matches rider weight (for example, an 80-kilo/176-pound rider will need at least an 80 L board or larger). Riding a “sinker” will work in locations with steady, strong winds, while floatier boards prove to be a safer choice as they allow the rider to get back to shore even if the wind drops under a foilable limit.
