The Noa is a 7-batten, no-cam slalom sail that draws its DNA directly from Naish’s decades of slalom and racing experience. It features a deep, powerful draft combined with a clean, aerodynamic shape. This delivers a crisp, balanced feel and straight-line speed that rivals a modern race sail, yet—thanks to its no-cam design—is easy to rig, and allows intermediate level sailors to jibe like pros.
The Noa is perfect for intermediate-to-advanced sailors seeking great speed and acceleration in an easy-to-handle, high performance, “hassle-free” design.
Sizes: 5.8, 6.4, 7.0, 7.8

Recess Clew Construction
The radial clew is the strongest and lightest design in the industry. A custom titanium ring is connected directly to radial Kevlar load strips via high-tenacity nylon webbing. The Warp Kevlar taffeta leech and foot tapes carry the perimeter loads.
Durable molded EVA tack fairing that folds back for easy rigging and protects the sailor’s feet, mast and board. It features a grommet for the uphaul line and a mesh pocket with a Velcro closure for storing the downhaul line.
6-Ply Batten Pocket Construction
Striking a critical balance between light weight and durability, the batten pocket balances the power loads and has scuff protection on both sides of the sail.
Roller Tack Pulley
A downhaul pulley that integrates a lightweight die-cast stainless steel housing and low-friction Nylatron GSM pulleys. It provides both standard 6:1 and 4:1 rigging options. This system makes downhauling very easy and reduces wear and tear on the downhaul line.
The unique geometry of our pulley offers both traditional 6:1 AND 4:1 “loop-and-go” rigging.
Secure mesh pocket with Velcro for storing the downhaul line.
Boom Opening + Position Marker
The boom opening has a long sleeve cutout for easy rigging, and features position markers that enable perfect boom positioning every time you rig.
Naish sails include comprehensive lightweight PVC scuff protection for both sides of the sail.
