JAVELIN 14'0" 

Race/Flatwater

When designing the Javelin, the Naish design team kept in mind that most flatwater races rarely offer glassy conditions. Good boards in this category need to perform as well in choppy conditions as they do in calm ones, draft well, offer the speed to overtake easily and still be maneuverable enough to quickly make buoy turns. Additionally, the ability to catch glides is important should the opportunity arise. With this checklist in hand, we set to work on the Javelin to make a board that not only met our standards, but exceeded them. The narrow and straight outline pierces through the water efficiently and quickly. Its recessed deck allows the board to be narrower than ever, while retaining stability—ensuring maximum power output through every stroke. Strategically placed scupper holes create a self-bailing system and drain water from the recess. The tail has also been optimally shaped to give the rider perfect positioning for aggressive buoy turns. To ensure the fastest boards possible, we worked closely with World Champions Casper Steinfath as well as a variety of national riders such as Andy Saurer and Alan Ng in a variety of conditions to guarantee explosive speed with the versatility to win in all conditions.
