Nomad Novy PP V-TailNomad
Michael Novy is one of the world’s premier wave riders. Winning both an ABA Tour comp in 3ft surf and the ABA Big Wave Awards on a 15ft monster slab on the exact same day, Novy has proven how comfortable he is in all surf conditions.
Novy’s board model, nicknamed the ‘Cyclone’, is a board that has been designed for high performance moves that Novy is known for, like fast, smooth air forwards and air reverses. Novy rides the same template in all conditions, from maxing ‘The Right’ to 2 foot beachies.
Core: 1.9pcf Premium PP (A PP core of a 1.9 density is the industry standard for high performance bodyboards. This core material is designed for ultimate speed and projection. Its durability is unrivalled by any other core. Lightweight and rigid, this core will perform exceptionally well in warmer waters where other cores become slow and unresponsive).
Stringer: Single Carbon Fibre Stringer (A bodyboard with 1x Carbon Fibre Stringer utilises a Carbon Fibre rod running through the centre of the board to add longevity by improving stiffness and recoil while also greatly increasing the ability for projection. The single stringer also enhances performance and control. The use of Carbon Fibre ensures no additional weight is added to the board.)
Deck: Cellu-cushion 8lb PE Deck (8lb Polyethylene is the most superior form of deck skin for any bodyboard offering sufficient strength to ensure a longer lasting board. The strength of the 8lb Polyethylene reduces the chances of deck creases and damage).
Slick: DuPont Surlyn Slick (A Surlyn Slick is your only choice for slick if you demand the greatest amount of response and durability from your board. This high performance slick is the finest grade Surlyn made only by DuPont. Featuring an elastic-like quality to reduce the chance of creasing and damaging without minimising projection).
Mesh: NV Mesh (Mesh layer added beneath the slick to further strengthen the hull of the bodyboard. NV Mesh reduces the chance of creasing and damaging).
Rails: 55/45 Chine Double Rails (A rail design enabling a comfortable grip for holding the rails of the board when riding).
Channels: Yes (2 channels on the bottom of the board located at the tail to ensure stability and control on the face of the wave)
Tail: The V-Tail provides a sharper control and bite into bottom turns and cutbacks, and locks the rider in for down the line speed.
Additional Features: Nose Grips (Small bulbs on the underside of the nose of the board that enhance grip and control), Nose and Tail Buffers (An additional layer of padding on the nose and tail of the board that enhances longevity and durability), Two Piece Tail (An additional layer of 8lb PE Decking on the tail of the board to offer further support to the tail and visually look appealing).
