The Hover 130 foil board is the perfect way to take your foiling to the next level. A flat midsection with rounded edges delivers early and forgiving planing to assist with launching. The nose section—transferring into a V-bottom and pulled-up nose—reduces the potential to pearl when touching down.

Versatility is deeply embedded in the DNA of the Hover 155. Offering an endless amount of fun, this board can be ridden with or without a foil for kite-foiling, skimboarding, wake-foiling or even wake-surfing! Thanks to its wide outline, the Hover 155 has a large sweet spot for incredible stability. Gifted with just the right amount of nose rocker, this board limits the potential to nosedive by bouncing off the water with ease—a characteristic especially helpful for beginning foilers just getting the feel for positioning. Four aluminum tracks make for easy adjustments while providing a precise and secure connection to the foil and rounded edges make for a more forgiving ride. Whether you are riding behind a kite, boat, with a foil or without, the Hover 155 is sure to keep you stoked!

Highly compact with minimal volume, the Hover 112 takes full advantage of minimalist design. Intended for experienced-to-expert foilers, this petite board delivers superior control in tight turns for a dynamic and responsive riding experience. When riding strapless, another key advantage of its size is the ability to sink the board and position it on its edge for easier take-offs. Its precise, CNC cut, closed cell core is wrapped in lightweight, high-tensile fiberglass, which heightens durability without weighing it down. The dual track system allows riders to instantly adjust where the foil sits on the board, for a more customized riding experience. Experience the zen of being “one with your foil” with the Hover 112 foilboard.

Conceived to push the boundaries of speed, the Hover 138 foilboard challenges the limits of race foiling with its sleek and narrow shape. Its precise, CNC cut, closed cell core is wrapped in lightweight, high tensile fiberglass, providing excellent strength with minimal weight. Its flat, straight rocker and beveled rails deliver excellent stability — especially helpful when edging hard upwind and making micro adjustments under pressure. For a more customized ride, two, ten-inch US boxes create a dual track system allowing riders to easily fine-tune where the foil sits on the board.

Thrust Surf Foil
Designed in collaboration with Kai Lenny, the Thrust Surf Hydrofoil develops lift at low speed and launches with minimal effort—a huge advantage for those getting started in kite-foiling. The combination of early take-off and excellent maneuverability makes it great for waveriding, cruising and racing. The extra long fuselage creates a large sweet spot and provides stability, while the downturned stabilizer (rear foil) makes waveriding and turning intuitive and easy. The small (55 cm) extruded alloy mast can be retrofitted to any style box system. Whether surfing, kiting or downwinding, the Thrust Surf Foil will keep you stoked session after session!
Thrust KS-1 Foil
Developed by the Naish team, the Thrust KS 1 Foil is fast and stable, inspiring confidence yet delivering plenty of straight line mojo. The kite-specific flat main wing planes up quickly for smooth take-offs, and situates itself naturally in the water for a balanced ride – it tracks beautifully thanks to a rudder integrated into the stabilizer (rear wing), and moves upwind and downwind with ease. The long fuselage adds more stability, and Naish’s unique stabilizer adjustment system allows the entire set up to be optimally tuned for individual riders. The long (90 cm) extruded alloy mast can be retrofitted to any style box system. This deceptively clean design has dominated our side-by-side testing, and the Naish team of riders is growing every day as more people try our foil.
