Foil Reviews2020 Foil TestsNAISH SURF JET FOIL 1050 



For 2020 Naish has launched the new Jet Foil series which includes eight new carbon front wings, and a new stabilizer wing system. The Jef Foil replaces the popular Thrust series from last season which was a test favorite for its easy cruising and smooth carving performance. The single bolt mounting plate system Naish calls the Abracadabra was also an industry exclusive feature that’s back again with some design refinements and a single thumb screw assembly. It’s the ultimate for getting on the water quickly. Although for 2020 the aluminum fuselage and mast system have changed slightly, the new front wings work on the same mounting pattern, so if you have last season’s Naish Thrust, you can easily upgrade to the new Jet Foil set up. The back stabilizer wing system has also been redesigned and a mounting conversion kit is available for the 2019 fuselage as well. The Surf Jet 1050 wing is the smallest in the surf series, and has crossover applications for kite, windsurf, wake and surf. Test riders were impressed with the quick lift, nice stability and smooth acceleration with intuitive balance between front and back foot. With a thinner profile and a refined delta wing shaping, the Jet Foil 1050 is slightly faster and looser from edge to edge than last season’s Thrust Surf. This is a great wing shape to learn with and progress your foil skills. Great for the beginner, the Jet Foil 1050 is a perfect choice for the less experienced riders who want to expand into a more surf oriented style of foiling. It has plenty of low end power for light wing kiting but won’t feel too large and over lifting if you want to push some more speed into the turns. The Jet Series is also nice and reactive to pumping and carving as the new stabilizer fin and front wings work together for a more balanced and smooth carving feel. The Surf Jet Foil 1050 is a great choice for kite foilers that want to advance their carving and transitional prowess and the modular set up makes it an ideal choice for any foil application from kite to surf, behind the boat or with a wing or sail. The Jet Foil package also includes a nice padded carry bag, wing covers and a torque driver tool for assembly.
