I've used my Naish 122 Hover for Windfoiling, sup paddling and surfing, regular surfing, and regular hi wind windsurfing with 2 8" wave fins.

How did it work?

- Interested in sup-foiling and wondered if it could be posible with naish 122, being so flat.

- windsurfing gibing seems almost impossible with such a sharp edges, wasn't it?

You have to laugh that kite brands are getting back into windsurfing gear after spending the last 10-12 years trying to discredit and bury the sport.

As a regular windsurf board, two 8" wave fins, it's a superb planing jiber with moderate speed and decent smoothness. Jibes like a JP Magic of similar size.
As a SUP, it wobbles a bit under my 70 year old 170 lbs. body but catches waves fine due to it's flat rockered nose, and almost wave board tail rocker.
As a surfboard, the 73cm with prevents full paddle speed, but turns decent for such a wide floaty board.

I sail mine with 2 x 22cm k4 fins. Sails well. Does get a little hard to keep on water >30knotsile any wide high volume board.

Gybes surprisingly well with a long smooth carve. Won't turn super quick. Have had in waves not loose but better than sitting on the beach.

I have ave found you just need to play around with fin position as I have my foiling straps back so I've needed to put fins back and mast track back.

I did have small twin fins around 14cm and this didn't work so well for
me. Changing to the 22's was much better.

I have have also done some mods to my foil plate to get it going in the waves as a foil SUP. I'll send pics but I am new to foil SUP. I would say a more dedicated foil with tracks more forward would be easier.

I've been using my home grown version and focused on XXLW Spitfire
the Sup position is lots further forward than in Windfoil position


The position for a conventional foil is at back.

with the transformer style board, being 9 foot or so is it difficult to use in foil sup mode. most of the dedicated foil sups being so much shorter and all
As in it will be a SUP , wind sup , windfoil and sup foil, in that particular order?
Thinking of the smik tranny too ????

The F-One Papenoo Convertible 123 is 7'11", so nowhere near 9'. Smaller sizes are ofcourse even smaller. Im no supper, but it works ok for windfoiling, the main difference i gind between a convertible and a real windfoilboard is that most of the volume is in the wrong place, reducing the light wind potential. However, once up it works fine!
