Naish Hover Crossover 120L 7’6”x 30” / $2065 £1849
Naish Thrust Foil XL / $1290 £1199

In this SUPboarder review we look at another multi sport foil board. The Naish Hover Crossover is a board that can do it all… SUP surf, SUP foil and Windsurf foil all in one. And it can do it all well. But just because it’s sold as a foil board doesn’t mean it doesn’t work well without the foil too. This board is a very similar shape to the older Naish Raptor, and in small to mid size clean waves that board was a lot of fun, and this Hover is the same. But also because of it’s shorter 7’6” length it’s a great board to get into foiling with as not too much weight up front. The board comes as standard with footstraps, so in just 5 mins the Hover can be changed from a surf foil to a wind foil.

To go with the board Naish have designed their Thrust foil which is a development of their previous years foils. The one we’ve been using is an XL size and would be great for most paddlers getting into the foil sport.

Get more out of your investment with this 3-in-1, multi-sport crossover. Two, ten-inch US boxes create a bottom track system that makes it simple and convenient to switch between sports. To SUP-foil, simply set to the forward position. For windsurf-foiling, set to the backmost position and affix a sail to the mast track deck box and attach footstraps to a multitude of insert positions. Ready for an old-fashioned SUP-surfing session? Take advantage of the quad fin setup and compact shape of this mini simmons-inspired design and log some time on the waves. Hint: this shape is especially fun on small, mushy waves.

Short, wide and unbelievably stable, the Hover 120 is as accessible as it is versatile. Featuring a huge sweet spot for a board of its length, this board is a great choice for beginner foilers, while those more experienced can position the foil further back for greater maneuverability. Easily fitting riders of all sizes, the Hover 120 Surf/Windsurf foilboard is the ultimate choice for any waterman that loves to do it all. These boards come with standard FCS fins and are equipped with the FCS II Eco Fin System for riders who prefer to use tool-less fins from FCS.

There’s a lot of gear arriving at the SUPboarder studio at the moment, which means plenty of ‘First Look’ videos before we get all the gear on the water. This times it’s the Naish Hover 120L crossover board and Thrust Foil that we take a quick look at. SUP surfing, SUP foil surfing and windsurf foiling… this board does it all.
