WHY THE NHP? Precision trickery in ultimate comfort. The NHP is our freestyle board for the win. Built to be an easy ride in all conditions, an enhanced rocker line allows the NHP to eat up choppy waters without affecting the board’s performance. Combined with the precision-designed X-Reactive Flex, this translates in to a seriously comfortable ride, that forgives rider mistakes. Freestyle trick s can be tuned-in perfectly thanks to the manoeuvrability of fered by the shorter toe-side edge, while the longer back-side edge equates to better upwind performance. Full control is retained in any conditions thanks to the board’ s Hydrodynamic Rocker Line and Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape. There is also a low-wind version of this model in the NHP size range, with a construction based on Elliptical Concave an d Flat Hydrodynamic Rocker solutions, modified to keep the integral NH P properties, but in a bigger size.

APS TECHNOLOGY ADDED PRE-STRESS (KITEBOARDS) APS Technology – Pre-Stress. Pre-Stressing 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 stiffer and far more torsion resistant, which results in astonishing pop on the water. Pre-Stress technology also allows us to build thinner and lighter boards which are actually more durable. Patented by Nobile.
ELLIPTICAL PROGRESSIVE CONCAVE Elliptical Progressive Concave (EPC) combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and a concave. The tail area is completely flat, whilst the center section of the board features the concave, and the resulting shape benefits from earlier planning. Patented by Nobile.
DYNAMIC ASYMMETRICAL SHAPE Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape is 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. Invented by Nobile.
X-REACTIVE FLEX SYSTEM X-Reactive Flex System – the X layout of carbon and Kevlar is the perfect combination. While carbon supports rebound forces and edge grip, Kevlar reduces vibrations to a minimum. Together these result in excellent pop, quick response and optimal torsion.
CAV - COMPLETE ANTIVIBRATION TECHNOLOGY By using advanced core materials, laminates and variable flex zones, we’ve managed to eliminate almost all vibrations that occur during the ride. Complete Anti-Vibration Technology (CAV) not only makes the ride smoother and faster , but also provides exceptional grip in all conditions. Invented by Nobile.
TRIAX 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.
WOODCORE There is no better material for a board core than wood. With its harmonious characteristics, combining strength, flex, light weight and vibration damping, wood is still the uncrowned king of core materials.
ABS SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION This industry standard construction was introduced by Nobile in kiteboarding production. It provides direct power transfer to the edges and vibration damping, resulting in easy to handle and precise boards. Invented by Nobile.
