***NOTE PICTURES ARE OF THE XXL***
The 2019 Naish Front Wing Surf is a suite of sweet high lift wings that turn small to medium sized waves and swell into a foilsurfing dream. Naish's modular system lets you swap out wings and masts to capitalize on the conditions at hand.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
As our stoke for foilsurfing has increased, so has our appreciation for Naish's Thrust Surf Foils. These are highly competent performers in small to medium-sized waves.
The M is the one that we recommend least often as it hits the sweet spot for only smaller more experienced riders, or riders who want a surf foil that can handle bigger waves. However, if foilsurfing isn't your aim and you really just want to foil with a kite, the M is a great choice that still makes the learning process very easy but will allow you to go a bit faster than the larger wings.
The L is the one that we recommend the most as it hits the sweet spot for most riders in small to medium-sized waves. Likewise, most riders who want to start foiling, especially in light wind, will find it to be a very easy way to learn.
The XL is a welcome addition to the surf foil line-up. The XL opens up the game for larger riders and allows smaller riders to ride ridiculously small waves or wakes as the case may be. Likewise, larger riders wanting to start foiling, especially in light wind, will find it to be a very easy way to learn.
The XXL kicks it up yet another notch for downwind foiling with a higher aspect and even more surface area. Deviating from the downturned wing design of the other surf wings, the XXL has a simple concave swept-back wing shape that is reminiscent of GoFoil Maliko. Larger riders and smaller waves are the marching orders of this ocean glider. The XXL is so new you won't find it anywhere else!

A bold success from the onset, the Naish Thrust Surf Foil Program welcomes the XL setup to its highly sought-after line-up. Delta-shaped front wings coupled with downturned wingtips deliver the perfect balance between early lift, efficient glide and outstanding turning ability. A slightly flat section along the bottom of the wing adds stability in straight flight while downturned wingtips heighten control in turns for easy carving and redirection without losing lift. The back wing helps to stabilize the front wing while providing extra power when pumping through flat sections. Adding to the high lift, efficient design, this wing model offers a larger window before stalling, making them easier to ride and control when compared to other wings on the market.
Three front wing sizes widens the range of rider weights and surfing conditions covered. The new XL adds riders above the 210 pound mark to the foiling club while bringing the threshold for surf size down even further. The XL set is also a great option for downwind conditions. And many pairing options allow riders to perfectly tune their setup to their needs, with the standard backwing pairing well with the M or L front wing and the XL backwing reserved for the XL front wing.
Those SUPers or surfers that dabble in other sports will find a solid multi-sport solution in this setup as well. Performing well in low wind and lower speeds, this ultra-stable setup is good for beginner-to-intermediate kite foiling and other low speed foiling.
