Info on this Nobile board?

Postby Drem Yol Lok » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:41 am

Hi Folks,

I just picked this board up recently, but haven't been able to find out much about it.
I contacted Nobile UK but havent heard back from them.

The main graphic suggests it is a Nobile Xsc... but I cant find anything anywhere about an Xsc model.
There is a decal on the deck that says both 666 and NHP... could this be some sort of prototype or is it just an obscure oldie?
I'd like to know what year it's from and wether I can use it with boots without fear of ripping the inserts out...

If anyone can shed any light on it for me that'd be awesome!

Never heard of this XSC.

But NHP 666 exists since many years

If it's an older 666, I wouldn't try it with boots. They were built very light and not ever recommended for boots. The only board for boots has been the 50/50. The construction difference between the two models was pretty obvious that the 50 was reinforced more than the 666.

I've had several Nobile boards dating back to 2002, and I've broken a 666 using straps. Not sure if this helps or not...

Off topic maybe but I've broken a Brokite, a Crazy Fly and a Carved imperator (V). All with straps and without obvious incident. I think at some point age becomes an issue.
