NHP WMN is a top-class women’s board which includes all of Nobile’s best technology. Through continuous improvements and tests performed by our best female riders, we have managed to create this exceptional board designed for freestyle and big air without compromising on comfort and upwind performance. Thanks to the magic we call Pre-Stress technology, we have succeeded in achieving the exceptional properties of this board. This entails stretching the wood fibres and strengthening them with glass fibres whilst in their outstretched form. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but you will definitely feel it in the water. The board gains improved torsion resistance which results in perfect upwind abilities and massive pop for jumps. The board is also “loaded” with inner energy which, combined with properly refined flex engineering, guarantees low weight, reactivity and soft landings. NHP WMN performs like a spring, even with small pops, while the Hydrodynamic Rocker technology makes every tack a pleasure. From the first jumps to the faster ride – NHP WMN is a great board which you will find very hard to part with. The construction combines Elliptical Concave – giving the freedom of manoeuvres and fantastic upwind performance – with Double Concave Tips Channels which, together with Pre-Stress technology, guarantees the perfect ride track, jump solidity and landing perfection. Specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker also ensures massive pop during jumps, then the rocker combined with the custom-tailored flex gives you exceptional comfort. The specially designed asymmetric shape with extended backside edge allows easier and more effective curves. The NHP board is perfect for freestyle, big air and fast tacks. It performs well in any conditions, from flat through to choppy conditions with small waves.
For advanced female riders looking for an exceptional, big air, freestyle board without compromising on comfort and upwind performance. Designed to ride with straps.
• Generous rocker guarantees comfort on chop and exceptional board agility.
• Double concave provides hard edging and keeps you on the track steadily.
• Improved Pre-Stress technology promotes the outstanding edge grip, pop and
• Stance and flex adjusted to women’s needs.
APS Technology added Pre-stress
Prestressing means the intentional creation of initial tension in a structure for the purpose of improving its strength properties.In kiteboarding, pre-stress allows the board to be loaded with energy during production. Storing the energy inside the board makes it a bit more stiff and much more torsion resistant, which results in astonishing POP. Pre-Stress technology also allows us to build thinner and lighter boards, yet still more durable.
Elliptical Progressive Concave
Combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The tail area is completely flat, whilst the centre section of the board features concave. This shape benefits from earlier planning.
CAV - Complete Anti-Vibration Technology
By using advanced core materials, laminates and variable flex zones, we managed to eliminate almost all vibrations that occur during the ride.CAV not only makes the ride smoother and faster, but also provides exceptional grip in all conditions.
Developed after careful analysis of water movement under the kiteboard.Hydrodynamic Profile is designed to reduce water drag, optimizing the board shape directly to the water flow. The advantages over traditional rocker with a flat center are increased board speed and improved acceleration.
Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape
Designed around the Human Concept, to enhance your performance and work in harmony with your body. We have tailored the outline of the heel side rail to provide more grip, better upwind performance and maximum POP. On the weaker toe side, the curve radius is increased to improve the carving potential and comfort. At the same time DAS decreases the foot pressure necessary to hold an edge.
X-Reactive Flex System
X layout of Carbon and Kevlar is a perfect combination. While Carbon supports rebound forces and edge grip, Kevlar reduces vibrations to minimum. Together this results in excellent pop, quick response and optimal torsion.
This aerospace product has found its sweet spot in kiteboarding technology as well. It's 90% lighter than wood, but has great durability.Placed in different areas depending on board model, it reduces weight, gives pop, improves tensional response and allows accurate flex adjustment.
There is no better material for a board core than wood. With its harmonious characteristic, combining strength, flex, light weight and vibration damping, wood is still the uncrowned king of core materials.
This layout of fibers transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex. As a result the board features aggressive filling, quick response and harmonious flexibility.
Careful paint jobs not only magnifies colors and makes your board the best looking equipment on the spot, but it also protects the kiteboard graphic from fading.
