Naish Hokua GTW 8'6 SUP Board 2018
The Naish 8'6 Hokua SUP is ideal for all intermediate-to-advanced waveriders allowing riders to make the most of every wave and it's the smallest in the Hokua GTW range.
Naish's collaboration with Gerry Lopez focuses on predictable, easy-to-ride designs that deliver super-smooth carving. The rocker design creates a large sweetspot, which results in effortless take-off, quick acceleration and responsive down-the-line surfing.
Situated between Naish's high-performance Mad Dog Carbons and their most stable Hokua X32 Series, the GTWs come in three sizes (8’6”, 9’0” and 9’6”) accommodating up to 180 lbs., 190 lbs. and 220 lbs. respectively.
For added flexibility, all boards in the GTW range can be ridden as a thruster or quad, granting riders the option to adapt the board to their riding style and conditions.
