THE FORCE TAKEAWAY

The Hover Surf Ascend PU is a real gamechanger when it comes to foilsurfing. We've been doing a lot of tow-in foilsurfing and a fair amount of paddle-in foilsurfing, too. Towing in with tiny boards is great, but paddling in is a whole different ball game. We've been paddling in with kite foilboards with some success, but it's a real challenge to catch waves with so little buoyancy. Sitting in the lineup with the water line at neck level is comically absurd compared to sitting high and dry with one of these boards. Having a proper foil surfboard makes the whole experience so much more accessible. The Ascend 5'0" has 40L of high-floatation volume while the 5'5" brings it up to 45L. The Ascend lets you paddle with ease and efficiency, making the all-important task of catching waves a breeze. The concave deck feels great as it cradles you when paddling and self-centers your stance when popping up. The wide, thick, and short design maximizes your control and offers minimal swing weight when pumping. If you want to foilsurf, we can't stress enough the importance of getting the right equipment. Save yourself a lot of frustration with an Ascend, you'll be glad you did!

NAISH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

While the Hover Surf Comet echos a traditional surfboard silhouette, the Hover Surf Ascend packs more volume per inch (in height). Wider than our Comets, with a more square and parallel outline, the Ascends pick up even the tiniest waves with little effort. The concave deck section is not only more comfortable when paddling, it is also a “self centering” feature when popping up—guiding the feet into the ideal position in relation to the foil.

Based on our Hover Kite 112 kite foilboard, the Ascend range features beveled rails running from nose to tail. These smooth the transition while getting up onto the foil and allow you to carve hard without catching rail.

If catching small waves early and getting to your feet quickly is the key to surf foiling, the Hover Surf Ascend unlocks the ride easily and intuitively. The Hover Ascends are recommended for riders who are looking for a dedicated design that allows them to go shorter (in consideration of volume) without sacrificing paddle ability.

When pairing Naish Hover Foilboards with your Naish Foil, use the screws supplied with the foil.
