Nobile Infinity Split foil or Split surf board for waves

Postby Pol Kiter » Sun Apr 15, 2018 4:39 pm

Hi,

I am really interested in getting a split board from Nobile, either the foil or the surf board.

I would like to know if you would even consider the foil version for riding waves (without the hydrofoil). It sounds really good to have a board for foil and waves that can be checked in as normal baggage but will it be very limited in waves? Has any of you tried it?

These are the boards:

Foil (5.2):

Surf (5.6):

I don't want to spend the money and be disappointed on my first session in waves.

Thanks!

You might also want to call the company directly and talk to a few employees that have used them - I’ve gotten some good information this way. From what I’ve read, Nobile was an early leader building split boards and has gotten good reviews. I don’t think you can go wrong buying one of their boards and the resale value should be good. Good luck and be sure to post a review on how you like them.

Foil 5.2. Its very good board for strapless riding. Different feel than "normal" volume board - but i like it much much better - i mean this different feel. Its much calmer and less sketchy
Only problem its is little bit heavy - which can be problem for strapless jumps
