FOIL / WAVE
WHY FISH SKIM FOIL?
Fish Skim Foil is a new project in our 2021 Nobile Kiteboarding collection. The new board, it’ s a great board for wave riding, but can also be transformed into a foil board. The larger size ensures better stability with low winds, heavier users and beginners as well. Surfing with twin fins on the back gives the board good windward without foil, but it still rides well with foil attached.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
