Pair the North Neo with the Nobile NHP (Nobile High Performance) board and you become a carving, jumping, wave-riding machine!
2017 12m, 11, 10 or 9m North Neo Kite
North Quad bar/lines
2017 Nobile NHP 134cm Board
The 2017 North Neo is the definition of a high performance wave kite and continues to meet the needs of the rider with ease. Thanks to the design concept behind the Neo and the power it delivers, riders are able to use at least 1-2sqm less in comparison to any other kite. This advantageous aspect further enhances its already rapid turning abilities, effortless float down the line, and responsiveness to handling which when combined, ensures ease of manoeuvrability on the wave. Taking wipeouts into consideration, we’ve made the Neo incredibly easy to relaunch so you can get up and away before the next wave hits. The new Anti-Snag leading edge tips will keep the kite tangle free no matter how bad the crash.

The NHP is a top-class board in which all the Nobile technologies have been used. It is perfect for freestyle and big air, without compromising on comfort and upwind performance. We have achieved this effect thanks to the Pre-Stress technology which magically stretches the wood fibres by weaving them and laminates it with glass fabrics in such an outstretched form. Owing to this unique Nobile technology, the board gains bigger torsion resistance which translates into fantastic upwind abilities and massive pop for jumps. Pre-Stress maintains energy within the board which, combined with perfectly chosen flex engineering, ensures low weight, responsiveness and exceptionally soft landings. The construction is a combination of Elliptical Concave – which gives freedom of manoeuvres and great upwind performance – and Double Concave Tips Channels. Together with Pre-Stress they guarantee the perfect ride, solid jumps and smooth landings. The specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker offers massive pop and take-off during jumps, making every trick easy and fluid. The asymmetric shape, with the extended backside edge, allows easy and more effective curves and turns, and performs very well in all conditions, from flat through to choppy conditions with small waves. Among NHP sizes you will also find the low-wind version of this model. Construction of these sizes is based on the Elliptical Concave and Flat Hydrodynamic Rocker, and then modified in order to keep the NHP characteristics at
these extended sizes.
