A power wave sail for onshore, offshore sideshore surf performance.
Designed with a moderate aspect ratio and a powerful shape defined by twin scrim luff panels and 5 battens, the Force delivers exceptional acceleration, a wide range, and even pressure to both hands. It works equally well in both offshore and onshore conditions. The Force is Robby Naish’s wave sail of choice.
Sizes: 3.7, 4.0, 4.2, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, 5.3, 5.7, 6.2
- Ultralight surf construction with a radial Kevlar airframe

X-166 Ultralight Scrim
X-166 is 40% lighter than monofilm, incorporates warp-oriented yarns to control elongation, and has an X-pattern to increase tear strength.
High Strength Warp Scrim
This material uses durable 4mm film and an X-ply plus warp yarn pattern for high load and impact areas.
Spectraview Lightweight Window
A medium-weight film laminated with small-diameter Spectra yarns that provide maximum visibility, without compromising durability. This is due to Spectra’s high tensile strength, as compared to conventional polyester.
Linear Kevlar Air Frame
The Kevlar load tapes combined with the radial panel layout form a structural matrix that makes Naish sails the strongest on the market.
Woven Warp Kevlar Taffeta
This high-quality, three-layer laminate is used on all perimeter reinforcements because of its unique combination of tensile strength, tear strength and resistance to abrasion.
Naish sails use more than 25 different materials, including multiple-laminated technical scrims, warp Kevlar taffeta reinforcement tapes, high-tenacity seam tapes and the finest woven Tetoran and sleeve material available. All of our laminated materials are manufactured by Dimension-Polyant in the USA and Germany, and our warp-oriented Tetoran is supplied by Teijin in Japan.
Our sails are engineered with a unique radial construction to ensure strength with lighter materials. Every aspect of the sail is designed to deliver the optimum durability-to-weight ratio. The result is clear on the water. Jibing becomes nearly effortless thanks to lower swing weights, and lighter sails are more responsive at both ends of the wind range.
Light weight alone does not make a great sail. Over the years, Naish riders have come to rely on the fact that their sails are the toughest and strongest on the market, and this year’s range is no exception. Naish sails will withstand punishing wipe outs and years of hard use.
Durable molded EVA tack fairing that folds back for easy rigging and protects the sailor’s feet, mast and board. It features a grommet for the uphaul line and a mesh pocket with a Velcro closure for storing the downhaul line.
Boom Opener + Position Marker
The boom opening has a long sleeve cutout for easy rigging, and features position markers that enable perfect boom positioning every time you rig.
Naish sails include comprehensive lightweight PVC scuff protection for both sides of the sail.
The radial clew is the strongest and lightest design in the industry. A custom titanium ring is connected directly to radial Kevlar load strips via high-tenacity nylon webbing. The Warp Kevlar taffeta leech and foot tapes carry the perimeter loads.
6-ply Batten Pocket Construction
Striking a critical balance between light weight and durability, the batten pocket balances the power loads and has scuff protection on both sides of the sail.
Roller Tack Pulley
A downhaul pulley that integrates a lightweight die-cast stainless steel housing and low-friction Nylatron GSM pulleys. It provides both standard 6:1 and 4:1 rigging options. This system makes downhauling very easy and reduces wear and tear on the downhaul line.
The unique geometry of our pulley offers both traditional 6:1 AND 4:1 “loop-and-go” rigging.
