SUP Foil Protech construction
Protech construction of the SUP Foil
NSPʼs Protech technology is an ideal construction as it combines performance and price in a very attractive package for beginning to intermediate foilers.
Riders can now hit the water hard, lose minimal speed or momentum, and recovery is smooth after an accidental touchdown.
• 36g molded SecureCell EPS core
• The standing area is reinforced with biaxial glass to avoid dings or dents from excessive pumping, while also helping to prevent delamination.
• Center ridge just below the EVA deck pad runs conveniently along the entire length of the deck pad allowing you to position yourself on the center of your board without looking down.
• The twin-track foil mount laminated bottom to the deck in reinforced high-density PU boxes for maximum strength fits perfectly for the NSP Airwave Hydrofoil but allows for installation of many other twin-track foils on the market.

The SUP Foil is an Alain Teurquetil design
Taking a considerate approach to designing a next-level SUP foil board, these shapes are all about performance foiling while maintaining accessibility. A moderate stringer breaks the water’s surface tension and helps take-off speed. A mild nose scoop helps to recover from accidental touchdowns.
Riders looking for a more radical or even smaller-sized foil board (4’2″) should look into the Pro version of this board.

We’ve added an FAQ about our Airwave foil, and if you have any questions about foiling in general or the NSP Airwave, we recommend you check it out.
The latest generation of NSP foil boards comes exclusively with twin-track mounts. Designed to withstand the increased torsional forces the hydrofoils can exert on a board, it is the widest accepted foil system in the industry and NSP’s preferred foil mounting system.
The twin-track is optimally placed for the NSP Airwave Hydrofoil, but the boards will accommodate foils by other manufacturers as well. A flat rocker in the twin-track area ensures a perfect fit, bonding the foil and board inseparable.
The shape of the EVA helps your footing, finding the perfect position by simply sliding backward until your back foot hits the kicktail.
Who is the SUP foil for?
Riders looking to go downwinding, newbies to foiling who are trying a wake session for the first time, wingfoilers are well served with the inserts, and SUP foilers will love how easy this shape recovers from touchdowns.
Intermediate riders and beginning foilers who are looking for a dedicated foiling platform. If you are into downwinders, SUP surfing (on a foil), or all three of these sports, you are going to love the new NSP SUP Foil.
