Naish Wave 85

The Ride: The Naish Wave has a very traditional look hiding some refinements to the rocker line and rail shape that provide true modern performance. They also give it a comfy directional ride for bump-and-jump sailing. On the wave, it keeps speed well through an aggressive front foot bottom turn. The arc is a little wider than the new-school shapes, but with good timing you can you still hit the lip with plenty of force and then the wide nose will takeover and re-direct you back into the wave. When done right the reward is unequaled, but for those still getting comfortable in waves it may be hard to find this timing. This doesn’t mean the Naish isn’t a board that can be grown into. It’s straight-line ride is one of the fastest and least technical, providing a sweet ride for boosting big air and mowing down any chop in its path.
The Parts: The new Naish pads are very thick and care has to be taken not to strip the screw hole when putting on the footstraps. We loved the high quality smaller fin which was a perfect fit with the board.
