NAISH HOVER 127X45.8X3.8 CM

Naish has six different foil decks to choose from in their Hover series of boards and the 127 is the second to smallest and a sweet shape for the more advanced level riders. Riding with a smaller board like this makes it easier for water starting without straps as the thin, and in this case, nicely rounded rail, sink into water easily when the board is tipped on its side at take off. The Hover 127 is a minimalist design that is constructed using a CNC, closed cell foam and wrapped in their new lightweight Durafinish construction. Nimble but not tiny, this deck was one of the favourites of the group for its overall size, feel and compact shape. The deck is comfortable and the overall stiffness makes it nicely reactive to rider input. The ten inch track system also lets any rider tune their foil mount position, for the preferred amount of lift and foot pressure. The small amounts of flip in the nose reduce the chance of nose catches when coming off a foil. Great for travelling with its small and thin design it won’t take up as much a space in your board bag.
