New Naish S25 Wing-Surfer
« on: February 17, 2020, 11:37:40 AM »
Naish just announced their new wind wing model, the S25 Wing-Surfer. https://wing-surfer.com/product/s25-wing-surfer/



6 sizes, topping out with a 7.2M. Nice big windows. I wonder what the weight will be on these.

That will be interesting, Rasta. Robbie is clearly reaching out... "Stiffer - More Power" would be welcome.

Everything I know about a 'delta wing' I learned on Youtube.

ok, so they are announcing them now.

Are they going to be available before October or are they going to actually build this year

I’m curious about why the odd sizing. The 4.6 to 3.6m one meter gap being the largest.

Perhaps he still believes most people will be served best by one wing, but it will need to be exactly the right wing for their weight. I expect some people will get a quiver of 3-4-5 or 4-5-6, but there are a surprising number of the folks here on Maui who have gone for a single size--generally 4.2.

I see the 3.6 Wing in the photo and that photo is from my local spot in Kailua.

The wind here is nothing like Maui and a Swing 4.2 is my smallest wing.

So I see that as a good sign on the power side that they are flying in this wind with a 3.6 wing.

I can't remember the exact day they did this photo shoot but in my opinion we have not had any 3.6 wing days this year. That is impressive.

I have the Swing 4.2, 5, and 6 and use them all. The 6 goes to a pretty light wind, but there could be an opportunity to go even a bit lighter so that 7.2M interests me.

That is interesting...  When I first saw the top photo of the new Naish S25 wing, it appeared (to me) the TE was mostly a straight line from tip to tip which would have made it pretty innovative, increasing the total area without ending up with a floppy TE.  Perhaps between that picture and production, there were revisions or it was simply the angle...  This was from the order page.

I have the same F-one quiver with the addition of the 3.5, which I had only used once until yesterday. the previous time it was marginal, yesterday I could have used something a little smaller.

Can anyone tell me if they think this might be a good wing for a beginner? I won't be able to use a Wing until probably sometime in May, but I'm really getting itchy feet. I'm seriously thinking about this new Naish.

As always, any and all thoughts are appreciated.

It should be. It’s the first 2nd gen on the market.

Thanks Dwight. I still have to decide what size is right for me, but I'll start a different thread for that. Thanks again.

Here is a nice run though from TJ at Big Winds.  The new strut panel (whatever we are calling that now) and the reduced wingtips look really nice but he says that the new wing is just under 1 lb heavier than the V1 wings.

Nice video, although with one error. The canopies are not nylon. They are polyester, just as the leading edge is polyester. Nobody uses nylon, except cheap land kites.

We all know from windsurfing that PVC windows add weight. No getting around it.

But we also know, absolutely nobody sells a windsurf sail without a window.

They are coming like it or not, and someday you may not be able to buy one without it.

I’m going for windows this season. Any glimpse I get from one, is better than being blind all the time. Especially bad when riding in the harness. Also the next big trend.

I’ve been loving my new S25 Naish WingSurfer.
It’s much stiffer than the V1 version and the new windows are great.
I’d like to see a new longer and narrower sausage shape bag that alowes  you to roll up the two sides to the center strut (just like before) but then just fold it once behind the leading edge strut and then again behind the window. I’ve been doing this and having it stick out of the backpack style bag that it comes with. I’m sure it’s not a problem but folding across the window material just seems wrong.
