Contrary to what most PKRA competitors will tell you, now settled into a glorious freeride habit, Shinn firmly believes you don't have to be a freestyler to be a good kiteboarder. For many, the freedom to ride in whichever style the conditions best suit is still the goal. The 2009 Shinn twin-tip has been built to appeal to riders who are led by feelings and not fashion (not to say it isn't a slick-looking piece of kit ? it even has a synthetic leather top foil! We have one downstairs awaiting the the subjection, pointing at and name calling from the test team - Ed). Even the word 'freeride' struggles to define its purpose according to Mark. 'Our Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline concept was first designed for the Shinn range in an effort to make it THE one board for all riders?carving, jumping, wake-style, wave? whatever your taste.' The Shinn will be the choice if you're looking for the super-smooth feeling and lively performance that you've come to expect. It also has a three year warranty against breakage.
SIZES: 135 x 42, 132 x 40, 129 x 39 and 126 x 38cm
The NBL range is designed for the beginner to intermediate level kiteboarder looking for a modern, advanced flex technology board at a reasonable price. The NBL range includes many luxury features on what Nobile believe is the best value for money board on the market today. The core is full wood, as found on many top-of-the-range boards, giving fast flex response, low vibration, outstanding strength and remarkably low weight. On the water the NBL guarantees early planing, fast upwind drive, unbelievable comfort and fantastic durability. The elliptical progressive concave combines advantages of both flat and concave boards and new sizes have been added to to suit more riders of different sizes and abilities.
SIZES: 142 x 42, 138 x 40.5 and 134 x 39cm
