The Hover Ascend Surf range is a specialized collection of surf foil boards that has undergone an evolutionary process in recent years. They have incorporated various innovative components while maintaining their existing volume and outline flow. The boards feature a nose grab recess area that facilitates easy duck dives and provides additional traction for take-offs. This unique feature is especially beneficial for performance riders like Austin Kalama, as it enhances grip during strapless airs. Additionally, by repositioning the tail kick further back, they have increased the waterline and flow volume, resulting in improved glide and easier wave entry while still allowing for easy foil take-offs. The bottom nose shaping has been accentuated with an increased V and double concave, ensuring smoother touchdowns and maximum control. The new subtle tail channel provides heightened control during critical take-offs and creates an optimized, level flying experience once on the foil, making the Hover Surf Ascend the ultimate surf foiling tool.

The Hover Ascend Surf boards also feature a High-Density PVC Foil Track System with (2) 10” US boxes. This system offers a comfortable foot placement for paddling and lowers the center of gravity for enhanced stability. The convenient channel on the nose makes it easier to grab the board during duck dives and grabs. The high-density PVC foil track system, along with the (2) 10” US boxes, allows for quick transitions between using the fin or the foil. It increases stability and provides better foot grip to prevent slipping off the board. Moreover, it allows for additional clearance during turns and softens touchdowns if the board hits the water.

In terms of design, the tail kick lift-off design eliminates any slowdown, making it easier to get on the foil and start flying quickly. This design also contributes to the lightest board weight possible and an optimum stiff flex, maximizing surf foiling performance.

In summary, the Hover Ascend Surf range offers an evolved collection of surf foil boards with innovative features. From the nose grab recess and repositioned tail kick to the V-shaped bottom nose and subtle tail channel, these boards provide enhanced grip, control, and stability. The High-Density PVC Foil Track System with (2) 10” US boxes ensures quick transitions and optimal foot placement. With the tail kick lift-off design, these boards enable fast foil entry and excellent performance. Overall, the Hover Surf Ascend is the ultimate tool for surf foiling.
