The Naish Custom Slalom boards have been further evolved from the classic slalom board, thoughtfully developed by our R&D team to make it easy for you to go fast. For this season we have added the 114 as a new size for heavier riders. You will find Robby Naish testing speed runs on the 95 at Kanaha here in Maui, Hawai’i. The Custom Slalom board is designed for riders who want to go fast. With their incredible speed on straightaways, as well as their smooth jibing sensation, these boards will fulfill your need for speed.

The Galaxy is a widebody freeride board that’s equally at home on the fin or on the foil. Well balanced and early planing, the Galaxy is incredibly easy to jibe for a board of its width. The wide tail with a generous amount of surface area guarantees early planing while the cutouts reduce wetted surface area when up to speed, providing great top end performance. Featuring a foil-ready Deep Tuttle box and multiple foot strap options, the Galaxy will allow you to tune and perfectly adapt to any conditions that are available.

The larger sizes of the Sprint feature 6 battens, are optimized for speed and power on larger freeride/slalom boards.

2022 Naish Lift RN Sail

The LIFT RN is an ultra-high aspect no-cam sail that delivers incredible foiling performance, as well as high-speed freeride sailing. It is great for foiling windsurfers looking for maximum speed on or off the foil. With its short boom and long mast, the high aspect ratio delivers amazing top speed while minimizing drag while foiling. The LIFT RN is also fantastic as a non-foiling sail, offering great no-cam handling and speed. The low clew and increased area below the boom seals the gap, improves end plating, adding to the sail’s overall efficiency.

Naish Welcomes Henri Kolberg to the Team

Schleswig, Germany – The Naish International Windsurfing Team is stoked to introduce and welcome the latest member of our crew, Henri Kolberg. Kolberg grew up in the small town of Schleswig in Northern Germany, where he became enamored by the power of the wind, waves, and the ocean at a young age. His family prioritized time on the water, and Kolberg has a collection of fond memories of summers spent in Denmark on the family sailboat, which translated perfectly to his love for windsurfing.

Kolberg came across a kid’s windsurf rig at the age of 5 and asked if he could have a try, and it came as no surprise when he immediately became hooked. From that moment forward, he spent every spare moment begging his dad to take him windsurfing so he could build his skills.

Around age 10, Kolberg met Robby Naish on the beach in Sylt, Germany, and told him how he dreamed of being a professional windsurfer when he grew up. “Never would I have imagined being on his team one day. So I am really stoked and honored to be representing Naish around the world now,” Kolberg said.

We’re excited to have this passionate and talented young rider as the latest addition to the Naish Team. Welcome, Henri!

First Foil Victory

Posted: 14th Juli 2021 by PWA World Windsurfing Tour in Allgemein
Original Post: http://www.pwaworldtour.com

Marion Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / LOKEFOIL) made an excellent return to the race course in Israel last month as the 29-year-old claimed her first Foil victory on the world tour, whilst also managing to place second in the Slalom during the 2021 Tiberias PWA World Cup. After more than 18 months away from top level racing the first event was always going to be an interesting affair and there were plenty of twists and turns along the way. We recently caught up with Marion to find out more about her first victory on the Foil and also what it was like to be back competing at the highest level. 

Hi Marion, congrats on your Foil victory and second place in the Slalom in Israel… how was it to be back competing on the world tour?

I was super excited to come back on the tour! It was challenging for the organiser to make it happen during this strange period, but they made it, with a super good set up! We have seen also new faces that’s super good for the tour! 

That was your first victory on the Foil - have you been training a lot on the foil over the last 18 months?

We did only 2 event on the world tour in the women division before this one, with a 18 month break, lot of things changed! 

I trained a lot on the foil since the covid break as I have more and more conditions for this at home. I’m also loving it a lot. I like to progress on this new discipline, everyday you can learn a lot. I’m doing IQ Foil in the same time, we had trainings with the French team, so for sure I improved a lot. I’m doing also a lot of Foil courses with the Mortefon Watersports Center, that help me to understand a lot of things. 

Heading into the final day there was almost nothing between you and Helle Oppedal - how were your nerves heading into the final day? And how did you feel when you found out that Helle had missed out on the final to guarantee you the victory?

It was a big day for me as it was also super close in slalom with Delphine Cousin [Questel]. Last races were stressful. But my plan was to take race after race, first the qualification round then the final. It worked pretty well as I managed to qualify and to make a good last race in the final. I have seen that Helle was not qualifying for sure, pressure was a bit less, but it was not sure that this race was the last one, you never know then, the goal was to be focus!   

You also sailed extremely consistently in the Slalom - how happy were you with your performance there?

For sure happy with my performance! Great battle with Delphine and Sarah, Sarah was a step ahead, but I did not tell my last word. I really like the adrenaline during the slalom course as you go full on the first reach to pass the mark first. Some girls were missing because of the political and covid situation, but we still have the top level and it was a really nice event to come back on the tour. 

The conditions looked extremely tricky with massive gusts and wind shifts - just how hard was it to select to right equipment and sail there?

It was super stressful to choose the equipment, especially in foil as the conditions were super super gusty, like from 4 to 25 knots. I’m not used to sail with the same equipment in these different kind of wind! Most of the time we had the same equipment as the men. 

Gybes were super hard, I’m not training at all in this wind in foil with reaching mode. But now I know that we will do races in this, and we can really improve with trainings in theses conditions!

The next proposed event would be in a couple of months in South Korea - what will you be doing between now and then?

I came back home and work for my centre, giving some lessons. I will also train a lot for South Korea, hope Covid will not come back until the event! I’m also training in IQ Foil for the World’s in Silvaplana, so busy program :)

Thanks, Marion. Congrats again on your victory!
