Hot off the press we are very pleased to show you the new 2017 Naish Alana twintip board.
The Alana is designed for women who want all-around freeride, freestyle and TT waveriding versatility within a single board. Its outline, flex and dimensions have all been fine-tuned to respond to lighter degrees of rider input and lower loads.
A medium rocker profile provides a forgiving ride and lively feel, while its supreme wood core delivers a soft, natural flex with a high strength-to-weight ratio. This, combined with its 3D bottom shaping, provides superior grip, forgiving landings and directional stability in a wide range of conditions.
The board looks fantastic and is sure to make many female riders happy, although it is worth noting that Naish have not release an Alana kite or surfboard as they did for 2016. Whether this is a reflection of times of stricter budgets for kite companies or simply the fact that not enough are sold (a large proportion of female riders don’t buy ‘female’ specific kites or care too much about them) remains to be seen as the other companies release their products for for 2017.
