2024 North Nova Wing
Our staff have used North Nova Wings since their inception. Each generation has seen improvements in performance, durability and feel, generally through refinement of the plan shape, profile and handle configuration. This latest model is no exception. Available in three colours and size breaks to suit your riding.
This latest Nova wing provides power when you need it, with a sweet spot so generous it makes hard things easy. Maximum low-end to get you up on the foil earlier. Top-end performance that lets you exploit gusty conditions. Engineered to feel light in your hands, the 2023 Nova’s progressive swept outline and refined profile section makes it easier to handle and more stable when riding. Your front and back arm pressure is even, not backhand-heavy. The wingtip geometry and balanced dihedral also prevent oscillation side-to-side when gripping the front handle, riding downwind swell, surfing, or simply walking towards the water.
The new draft-forward curvature in the profile section generates more lift in the front of the wing. This makes transitions smoother so you can glide through turns effortlessly, and when combined with improved canopy tensioning, boosts Nova’s low-end power. A stiffer, more responsive airframe means the canopy stays clean through a wider wind range. North have minimised flutter and created a clean trailing-edge release with reduced drag. Then, to ensure the wing remains stable and comfortable in overpowered conditions, they have tapered the leading-edge diameter, concentrating the stiffness in the LE centre and allowing the reflexed wingtips to dump excess power. Master of the upwind, glide through tacks, float through gybes, and lofty jumps with bonus hangtime. Whatever goal you’re chasing, the Nova will send you there faster.

Receiving your order
When you receive your item(s), please check to see if there is any damage. Once the drivers manifest has been signed it voids any insurance claim. If you are unsure, please sign as "damaged", which will allow you/us to make a claim later on if required.

Sometimes things don’t go to plan and you might feel the need to arrange a return. If you receive an order and find you have changed your mind, or the item just isn’t right for you, don’t worry.
