The Nova’s 4 inlets have been placed in such a way that air gets in easily and the internal structure allows this air to move freely inside the kite to speed up inflation. At the same time, the valves inside the wing prevent air from getting out.
Riding a hydrofoil gives you the freedom to explore kiting in a different and magical way; ride waves, make turns, jump around or just cruise. There are no limits. Combine this with the ultra-wide wind range and stability of a foil kite and you’re golden.
We believe every kiteboarder should be able to experience the magic of riding a hydrofoil. To make foiling accessible even to the most dedicated LEI riders, we have created a kite that allows you to focus on getting up on your board without having to deal with your kite. The kite’s incredibly stability allows you handle your foil board without having to worry about your kite.
Kiting with a foil gives kiteboarding a whole different perspective. With an LEI, there is only a stop and go. With a foil there is everything in between. It’s a Ferrari that drives faster if you shift it well. You learn something new but if you temper it, you will find new possibilities.
AGILE, STABLE, ACCESSIBLE
We’ve created an accessible depower foil kite that comes very close to the feeling of a LEI, but with all the benefits a foil kite has to offer: better upwind, better downwind, better low wind performance and better float. With the use of lightweight materials, the NOVA only needs a summer breeze to make you feel magic.
We have created a wing that doesn’t twist or has its tips fold in. It is highly stable yet agile, and it fills quickly with air due to a smart 4 intake system.
We designed the NOVA with a relatively high cells and a balanced cell count, has resulting in a very stiff foil which retains its shape even under turbulent circumstances.
Because foil kites like the Nova are highly efficient and deliver much more power per size than LEI’s you will be flying a much smaller wing than you might expect in any given wind speed.
The float on the Nova is so good you could even use the kite to ride some waves whilst the kite happily drifts along… Riding a wave on a foil board is something close to extraordinary!
Choosing the perfect foil size is different from a LEI kite. Ask an experienced rider, or contact us for advice beforehand.
To guarantee your safety the Nova features the proven and trusted industry standard flag out system. It is recommended to check bridle lines, pulleys and the speed system for possible tangles before re-launching. To guarantee maximum safety, stay at home, on the couch, and binge watch your favourite TV show.
Like any performance specific gear, it’s built out of extremely light weight materials which are more prone to damaging and/or stretching. Whilst we’ve chosen only the highest quality materials for you, it’s still necessary to carefully maintain the kite for its longevity. Special attention should be paid to the bridling and speed system.
Even though the Nova is an easy to use depower foilkite, it does however require insight on how to fly these types of kites to prevent potentially dangerous situations. Even if you have the skills required, do not fly it in unpredictable or dangerous weather conditions, like offshore winds and/or (thunder)storms.
