What we like:
The Motion works for a wide range of people which is why it is so popular. It has plenty of pop for freestyle or wakestyle riding. The landings are soft and forgiving.
They made the rocker and flex pattern pretty moderate, so it would easily go upwind but also handle some chop. This combined with a simple concave and rail channeling give it grip.
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 Motion:
The Motion is the most versatile board in the Naish line. It looks great, it rides great and it is super fun in the flat water or the chop.
The Motion is for riders looking for unrivaled versatility in one "do-it-all" design. This board offers everything from freeride and freestyle performance to twin tip wave riding functionality.
Its surface area, full rocker, new beveled razor channel rails and responsive flex provide balanced power, superior edging, soft landings and a smooth ride in chop. The added fin beam in the tip section adds rigidity to the fin mounting area, thus increasing the edging ability of the board. Its solid pop and directional stability help riders of all abilities take their riding to the next level.
