The Lift is a lightweight sail developed specifically for foiling and perfectly matched to the early take-off and smooth flight of the Naish Thrust WS foil. Designed with low internal tension to maximize responsiveness at the bottom of the wind range, it delivers the low-end power to quickly get you up on the foil in light wind and yet still be luffable and effortless to handle once you are flying. The Lift planform is optimized for foiling, featuring extra foot area due to the more upright rig position and a relatively long boom.
Sizes: 3.7, 4.7, 5.7, 6.4
Equilibrium™ Batten Pockets = Improved rotation + light + durable
Spectraview Window = Light + tough
Horizontal Body Layout with Radial Clew = Maintains sail shape + progressive twist
Dacron Body Panels = Lightweight + durable
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.
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.
Evenly distributes the batten tension load to both sides of the sail for greater symmetry, reduced weight and improved rotation. Where normal batten pockets are sewn to one side of the sail, EBP are formed by overlapping the sail body panels. Reducing weight further, integrated warp-oriented tapes absorb much of the batten load—eliminating the need for additional reinforcement.
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.
Secure mesh pocket with Velcro for storing the downhaul line.
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.
Simple and convenient one-step fastening system for quick sail stowage
