What we like:


Who doesn’t love Carbon. Adding Carbon is like adding sprinkles on your favorite ice cream. By adding Carbon to the Motion it makes gives you the great shape of the Motion with a lighter and stiffer shape.

The Drive is best suited for heavy or light riders. Heavier riders like it because it has the increased stiffness keeps the board on track and charging upwind. It also make for better landings. Smaller riders liked the light and lively feel under foot.

The medium rocker and stiffer flex pattern pretty moderate, allow this board to charge upwind. In sever chop this board can be a little harsh on your knees if you don’t have the weight to flex it.

The channeling on the rails in the mid section of the board makes you have hold on your heel and toeside edge. We found this one of the easiest boards to ride toeside of any twin tips we have tested.

Naish squared off the tail of the board. This makes for a smoother water release and you will be less likely to split open the tail if you drop it.

Why you want the Naish Drive:


If you want a very responsive and light weight all around twin tip, then you should check out the Drive.
