Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

The problem is that when use it as wave board it is vibrating and high sound from it. There is same space between the two parts he have a carbone splitboard and it is not look the same. He went back to the store and they took a new one to give him but the same deformation on the surface and same 1-...

Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

Alvaro I've not tried it but I would imagine you could put other straps on the Split Board. It has an (M6?) insert not a machine screw like some other boards. I find that the board works great strapless, so I have just removed them. I think the Check-In bag is constructed of maximum dimensions that ...

Re: Moses T40 board - are people happy with it? Any negatives?

TOM - you are onto something, I think board displacement below the waterline has a huge impact. I've been riding an Alien Air and it is pretty tricky to strapless waterstart. Just got a Nobile Splitboard and it is so much easier to strapless waterstart. Thinner rails, not as wide or thick, less boar...

Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

All : Just wanted to report out on my first ride test with this setup, which I received last week. Had this out on Sunday, slightly over powered conditions, 13 - 18 knots on a North Rebel 10m. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/1642944886 I rode it with 2 front straps foiling, strapless foil...

Re: Help - how to tack? Especially strapless

I just came across this video which is one of the more useful / well annotated ones I have seen, complete with kite positioning throughout the move.

Re: 2017 Lift Foils

Looks good and I'm glad Nick and the boys decided to ditch the clear coat which shipped on the NF2 foils.

Slingshot SkyHook Foot Hookers compared to NSI

Has anyone gotten their hands on the new Slingshot Sky Hooks? Basically same concept as the NSI model. https://youtu.be/28XJuIQwQeI I've been using the NSI hook for a while and it works pretty well. I basically just have one hook on the front to assist with waterstarting. The geometry rides a little...

Re: choice - (MHL) Lift NF2 vs. (LP) Silencer NF2 vs. Ghost Whisper

I too have been on a Lift NF2 (Slingshot setup) since 2015. Nice build, pretty light weight. I'm not sure I would want a longer mast than the 104cm provided. Performance is good, I'm just free riding. Never had a worry with the pointed fuselage nose. My only complaint is that their clear coat is a l...

Re: Northern Carribean locations for kitesurfing

Kontech: Sorry, I haven't been on the forum for a while, I missed your Q. There is a wide range of accomodations on the Island, though most of them are on the Grace Bay side. There are a handful of kite specific villas on Longbay with compressors, kite storage etc, but pricey unless you are splittin...

Re: Nobile Zen Foil 'Unboxing'

Shawn - I've been riding Nobile twintips for like 10 years, since the 666 days, currently on an NHP from like 2013 (which I still love.) This package looks super well engineered and thoughtfully put together. I'm looking for a ride report for this thing both as a foil and as a wave surfboard. Looks ...
