The 2019 Naish Thrust Kite Foil Abracadabra is an all-around freeride foil with a forgiving and user-friendly feel that will encourage beginners and progress advanced riders alike. The unique foil shape combines the advantages of a dihedral and an anhedral wing, providing both stability and low-speed lift. The Thrust Kite Foil is tuned to provide a stable locked-in glide with its large sweet spot and its higher aspect ratio.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
Despite the radical look of this foil, it is surprisingly easy to ride and gets up on foil at far slower speeds than we expected. Naish says it's because of its combined anhedral/dihedral shape and we are inclined to believe them. It's also a stark contrast to Naish's other wing offerings which makes the modular system all the more versatile and makes a compelling argument for having at least two wing sets as you can really maximize your foiling experience. We also love the Abracadabra system and the single tool platform that lets you do it all with the same Phillips head screwdriver.
NAISH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Standard Mast Size: 90 cm | Aspect Ratio: 6.5 | Wingspan: 25.3"/64.2 cm | Projected Surface Area: 600 cm2
Forgiving and user-friendly, the Thrust Kite Foil Complete delivers a super smooth foiling experience for anyone from beginner to advanced to cruise on. Its segmented front wing combines the stability of a dihedral shape with the early take-off and low-speed lift of an anhedral wing. Tuned for balance, this foil setup reduces pumping time by helping riders quickly find a stable plane and lock in, while the higher aspect ratio lengthens the glide. A large sweet spot delivers ample stability for a more natural feel that encourages riders to move more freely and gain the confidence to progress. Smooth gliding and incredibly intuitive, this effortless setup frees your attention to enjoy the experience and expand your abilities.
The Abracadabra Plate connection makes it quick and effortless to detach and store your separated board and foil. One screw is all it takes to quickly and easily disconnect the entire foil system from your board, while the bottom of the plate can remain in place. Just a few turns of a #3 Phillips head screwdriver yields a secure and tight connection between foil and board. The Abracadabra Plate is available in the complete set or as an aftermarket item for any current and previous Naish aluminum mast.

The Hover Kite 130, 155, and 160 foilboards have a shallower track system and therefore require the shorter screws as supplied with the board. These boards CANNOT be used with the longer screws that come with the Naish Thrust foil.
When pairing all other Naish Hover Foilboards with your Naish Foil, use the screws supplied with the foil.
