Products we compared
Still a great all round foil board that works well with a paddle and a wing.
Pros: Good glide when off the foil / Great construction / Lots of sizes / Works well for both wing and SUP.
Cons: White deck pad can get dirty!
Consider buying if... You are after an easy board to use with your wing and with your paddle.
The compact LE is super easy to pump and jump, higher level riders will love it.
Pros: Well designed nose and bottom shape / It makes pumping and jumping effortless / Quite easy to use for length.
Cons: Lighter winds require more technique and fitness to get up on the foil.
Consider buying if... You're an intermediate rider who knows how to get the most out of their wing and foil. Better for wingers than SUP surfers unless you have a good paddle technique.

What we say
We can definitely say that we know the existing Naish Hover Wing 5’7″ board very well, as for the last few years its been Reuben’s ‘go to’ foil board. With its availability in many sizes it has got loads of you up and into foiling with your wing or with your paddle in the surf. But is it still the best board in the Naish range? Or is the new and shorter Naish Hover Compact the board that we all should be looking at now?
