The Hover S25 is a good weight, and the carbon foil mount gives the board a great feeling under your back foot. Works well as a wing foiling board that goes in a bag.
It's definitely more technical to use in the surf because it offers less straight line tracking when not on the foil compared to an equivalent composite board. The deck-pad could be bigger especially if you are wanting to use bigger foils. The 6" thickness does change the feel of the board when on the foil.
Buy if... you're looking to get an easy to transport foil board. Good for all levels of wing foilers but in the surf you need to be happy using foil boards already. If you want to wing foil 70% and surf foil 30% then the S25 Hover inflatable would be a board to have on your watch list!

What the brand says
The brand new Hover Inflatables set the standard for compactness for wing-surf foiling and SUP foiling. Offered in 5’7”, 135 liter and 6’7”, 170 liter sizes, these boards are easy to travel with and roll up to a backpack size for travel and storage. Although they are inflatables, these boards have made zero concessions when it comes to performance. Built with a double dropstitch construction and single center stringer, the Hover Inflatables are extremely stiff for superior foiling performance. The 6” sidewall also contributes to the overall board stiffness, volume and stability. The carbon foil mount spreads the load of a foil evenly, giving a composite like board ride while keeping overall weight to a minimum. For traveling wing-surfers or SUP foilers, the Hover Inflatable makes travel easy without sacrificing performance.
135 is ideal for riders up to up 231 lbs/105 kg
170 is ideal for riders up to 264 lbs/120 kg
