The new NSP Airwave mixes high-performance pre-preg carbon with precision milled anodized aluminum. The wings, mast and fuselage designs have evolved over several iterations, combining stability, durability, price and performance – have a look at our NSP Airwave FAQ or view our Airwave Matrix Comparison chart.
Ty Judson – International NSP Teamrider:
“The agility and speed that this foil offers is unbelievable when driving the foil into hard cutbacks…”
Perfect in small to medium-sized waves, the Airwave suits both light- and heavier riders. Designed for regular surfing and SUP, the NSP Airwave can be towed and the three included shims allow you to trim for different conditions:
With low-speed take-off and excellent rider feedback, the NSP Airwave lifts early. Efficient wing design in combination with an incredibly stiff fuselage and mast allow for an extra amount of control and stability, making the NSP Airwave perfect for all disciplines of foiling.
Smooth elliptical curves give you the drive to surf and commit to effortless rail-to-rail transitions. Stability comes in buckets at all speeds, and glide characteristics are great. Foiling is all about feedback and this foil package gives you the feedback required to execute committed turns and extend your glide. A 1325 cm2 front wing in combination with the 330 cm2 back wing leverages your pumping action while creating appropriate lift and stability.
Precision manufacturing means 100% alignment of the wings and heavy-duty construction. The NSP Airwave is ideal for both entry-level and advanced foilers. Downwind specialists tell us this is one of the faster foils on the market right now, allowing riders to almost ride around other foilers on the same trip.
A word on choosing your hydrofoil
With a wide range of foils available in an even wider price range, we recommend choosing a foil from an established manufacturer. As you will progress, you will want to adjust your mast length, wings and other components and choosing an established brand means you will have that option.
Surf, SUP or kite
Suitable for different kinds of foiling, your Airwave can be tuned with a wide range of aftermarket options to customize your unique foiling style. Different size masts, wings and back wings are all available; talk to your dealer.
Designed to spread the load, the anodized aluminum base features screw slots instead of holes, allowing for additional fine-tuning.
Built from anodized aluminum, the 70 cm mast minimizes drag and maximizes stiffness.
