North Nova Wing 2022
The wing is now more compact which helps shorter riders but also makes the wing much easier to manoeuvre and more handy when riding waves so that the wingtips don't touch the water. The flagging out is phenomenal with nicely accentuated front handle. Even when riding in gloves it's easy to slide your hand into it without having to fiddle around.
Speaking of handles - the new rigid GripLock handles are a godsend, especially when gybing or tacking you don't really have to look where your hands land. No more aiming for small handles and, if you grab onto the wing in the wrong place, you can just slide your hand to the right position. Handles aren't new to wing foiling world but North did really well here making them ergonomic to aid arm pump and hands fatigue issues. We're pretty stoked about this new addition.
The windows are ideally placed to be actually useful when riding in more crowded spots and sized correctly too without being so large that would make folding the wing a chore after the session. The bag isn't massive but just big enough so you don't have to be an origami expert to get your wing inside. The wing comes as standard with repair kit and a wrist leash.
