The world of kiteboarding is changing in front of our eyes. After a decade of dynamic growth it enters the next, even more professional stage. It is visible in the level of kiteboarding industry, events organisation and infrastructure. The competitors’ and riders’ skills are becoming higher and higher, while the tricks are more powered and complicated than ever. It requires hard work of our engineers from the R&D department to be ahead of these changes and deliver the best products which suit each riding style. This is why Nobile is searching for innovations, best materials and technology at every stage of designing products.
The new 2016 “Earth and Spaces” collection is full of novelties. We believe it will meet all riders’ expectations.
While creating boards for 2016, we had in our mind not only competitors, but all kiteboarders out there. Thinking about all local heroes around the world we re-shaped the NHP line and T5 boards and took them on the next level. These boards will help you get there too! In cooperation with our beautiful female riders we improved and extended women’s line by adding 50/Fifty model dedicated for wakestyle riding. Our splitboards line is a bestseller, but we didn’t stop improving it. Good news for all travelling by plane with their equipment: not only quivers are not needed, but also W-connection is even stronger and easier to connect. Just use our bags designed for travelling with splitboards and save some cash for nicer spending. We didn’t forget how important is the connection between the rider and the board, thus for 2016 we are introducing completely new, light and ergonomic IFS (Integrated Footpad System).
We always care about our riders. That’s why we started Human Concept philosophy. The point is, to understand it is the human who is the most important part of the system, because even the best equipment is not able to function alone. It is the rider who connects all elements of kitesurfing. It means, to develop the best equipment, we have to analyze and understand natural advantages and limitations of human body and mind, and built the gear around them. But the most importing is to be fit. Nobile Kiteboarding presents trending with Darek Garko: Dynamic stretching – recommended for person engaged in extreme sports. Enjoy and always do that before kite session. Check: https://vimeo.com/129341833

Nobile friend Laurent SUBLET on Nobile Skis finished 2nd in Serre Chevalier at the 11th Edition of the World Snowkite Master. 46 riders from 12 different countries were on the starting line. Despite gusty wind Laurent did 5 runs during the 2 days of competition.
“The snow was “choppy” but it wasn’t problem for Nobile Supreme Skis 188, and with 105mm they were still stable in high speed, perfect for racing on this mix of ice and powder,” said Laurent. Congrats Laurent!
World Ski Test/OpenSpace 2014/15: Nobile 50/Fifty Ski – tester’s opinion:
This year Nobile Ski from Poland presented itself with a model of the stern and surprised the testers like last year with his all-round abilities. A brand that positioned itself in the free ride circus and is suitable for any skier that wants to ski an exclusive model.
The top priority in this World Ski Test/OpenSpace 2014/15 category is especially the skiing fun and the unadulterated joy of winter sports! The main roles in the Open Space category are perfect skiing experience, individuality and exclusivity, as well as design. Everything that does not fit into the classical test categories is presented in the Open Space. Innovations, exceptional and exclusive skis and new brands are tested and the testers verify the information of the manufacturers. Since the individual models are much too different to compare them, we abstain in this category from neutralization and rating of the skis. The skis were tested meticulously on the slopes in Silvretta-Montafon in its original state. As we have seen, the ladies and gentlemen had lots of fun testing new products and special features – skis and brands – that are not available in all stores.
„It is official now, a life changing decision has been made. I have decided to end my kiteboarding career. After many heated discussions, my family, doctors and I have concluded that it is better for me to resign from ‘freestyle’ kitesurfing. In January, 2013 during a training session in Cape Town, SA I had dislocated my hip. It was a very serious injury. The bone fell out 0,5 cm from the aorta in the left thigh( the femoral artery). It was a close call and I was very lucky. I have had surgeries on it and many hours of physiotherapy, though it is still very painful when I kitesurf; it just annoys me and I do not have fun out of it anymore. While kitesurfing, the kite pushes me all the time in different directions, all these bursting, quick and vast movements are not good and appropriate for my hip. I just do not feel confident enough anymore when I kitesurf. I would like to thank all of you for the support! It was indeed the journey of a lifetime! You may ask what now..?! Well, I have many plans! I will keep traveling that is for sure. I am going to snowboard a lot, surf and perhaps kitesurf as well but just for fun and I will surely continue to run this fan page so if you want to know what is going on in my life, please follow my page, because I can ensure you that loads of cool things are to happen.. 🙂 Big thanks to my Family, sponsors, friends, fans, all the people, who believed in me, for the support!, Asia Litwin”
