S26 Naish Wing Surfer
Wing-Surfing / Wing-Foiling
The new S26 Naish Wing Surfer is here – in third generation – and it comes with some hot improvements for season 2022.
Wing-Surfing Taking The World By Storm
The Naish Wing-Surfer took the world by storm with its introduction in 2019, launching the sport of Wing-Surfing into what is now the fastest-growing water sport in the world.
The S25 Wing-Surfer took the basic concept of the first Wing Surfer to the next level by adding more sizes, better visibility, and improved performance.
This season’s all-new Naish Wing-Surfer is packed with design features that will carry this rapidly evolving sport well into the future.

So, What’s New For The S26 Naish Wing Surfer?
Here’s a great clip comparing the S25 and the S26 models:
Changes For The S26 Naish Wing Surfer:
The Naish design team started with the basic outline – refining the leading edge curve of each size wing to maximise drive, balance, and stability in its given wind range.
Panel count has been reduced for lighter weight, yet not overly simplified, ensuring that optimum foil shape is retained.
Leading edge diameters have been increased in the centre of the wing to provide a substantially more rigid airframe, without appearing cartoonishly large as seen on some other wings.
In this case, the “bigger is better” approach has its limits, and a balance between diameter sizes versus drag, speed potential, weight of leading edge material and internal bladder, etc. must all be taken into consideration.
The leading edges taper to the wing tips for a perfect balance of power delivery, stability, twist, and speed.
The centre strut diameter has also been increased for stiffness and better control in higher winds and jumping.
Draft depth has increased substantially and is further forward, providing more locked-in power and increased stability.
Everyone, including heavier riders, will especially appreciate the immediate sheet-in-and-go, which provides improved low end and upwind performance, as well as strong wind stability and control.
Some riders may find that they will now be able to use a wing that’s one size smaller in the same wind conditions than they would have previously.
Hold on – There’s More…
The handle count has also been reduced, with repositioned handles in the right locations for maximum performance and comfort.
New removable and adjustable Y-handles between the leading edge and strut provide added tune-ability to the wing.
A neoprene pad under the front handle adds extra comfort when handling your wing, or luffing while riding swells or waves.
The windows on the S26 Naish Wing Surfer have been redesigned and repositioned to maximise functionality and safety while reducing their overall size.
The new windows are narrower in width and placed further forward toward the leading edge of the wing and closer to the centre strut – all but eliminating blind spots.
The result is perfect visibility, reduced weight, and a smaller package when storing or transporting your wing.
A new coil leash design with a smaller, lighter, and easier to secure wrist attachment is standard as is a new and improved carry bag.
Finally, new internal reinforcements and advancements have been made in seam construction, especially in high load areas such as strut to leading edge connection and strut to canopy stress points – all contributing to a stronger and longer-lasting wing.
Weight reduction was a factor in the design of the S26 Naish Wing Surfer, but there must be a balance between weight saving, functionality, and durability.
The S26 Naish Wing Surfer meets this challenge without compromise by perfectly providing a dynamic, responsive, powerful, and long-lasting wing that will suit first-timers equally as well as it will suit the aspiring professional… session after session.
Available Wing Sizes (in meter): 2.2 | 2.8 | 3.6 | 4.6 | 5.3 | 6.0 | 6.8
