Naish Global Carbon Surfboard test review – 5’7″ & 5’9″

In any sort of surf the Global is at home. The bigger and faster the waves the better. Alternatively, the Global also feels good when just charging around in difficult waters and strong winds.

FULL REVIEW EXTRACT – RIDING IT:

The chunky rails thin out and turn square in the narrow tail area, right where all the turning business takes place. The combination delivers lovely grip around the central rail area when you initiate your turn and then the sharper tail section ensures that the grip continues to hold at speed, even though the small tail section means you can still turn on a dime.

In any sort of surf the Global is at home. The bigger and faster the waves the better. Alternatively, the Global also feels good when just charging around in difficult waters and strong winds.

The high wide point of the Global means there’s a decent amount of volume under your front foot when you’re standing forward on the board, working to get back upwind or to get planing and trying to maintain momentum through white water or lighter wind patches.

SIZES: 5’9’’ x 18 ¼’’ x 2 5/16’’ (26.1L) 5’7’’ x 18 ¼’’ x 2 5/16’’ (24.6L)
