Waiting for wind? The all-new Nova Light Wind has the power to unlock borderline sessions, lift you up instantly in the lightest wind and keep you on the foil for longer. Its deep profile and ultra-stiff frame provide the most efficient power delivery per m2, carrying you through the lulls and converting the slightest puff into powerful forward momentum. Engineered to feel as light as possible, the Nova Light Wind has balanced load distribution and lift for easier gybes, tacks and low-speed transitions. Rigid GripLock micro-trim handles deliver a more immediate response. Its refined compact outline and rounded wingtips help reduce tip-strike, and the manageable span width is tailored to fit every rider. Go by height to choose just one Nova Light Wind size for your quiver, and end the wait for wind.

The Nova Light Wind has a deep profile and stiff frame to enable the most efficient power delivery per m2. Our main focus for the Nova Light Wind design was to get you up and riding, without needing to pump hard. To get you up on the plane and keep you there as long as possible, through even the zero knot lulls. The framing of the wing is very stiff and reactive. When you pull with your back arm, the wing delivers direct power and drives you forward.
The Nova Light Wind has a compact outline with rounded wingtips for reduced tip-strike. The lower aspect ratio and reduced span width means you’re less likely to catch a wingtip in the water. The curvature in the wingtip means that if you do touch the water, only a small part of the wing tip will make contact. This creates less drag and improves your chance of recovery.
Radically transform the way you ride with increased control and reduced hand-fatigue. The rigid trim handles offer an immediate, direct response and balance adjustment. The two handlebars are wrapped in a soft EVA comfort grip. Their length lets you slide your hands into optimum trimming positions so you can instantly control the wing’s pitch, yaw and roll, while keeping your body positioned perfectly over the foil. More freedom in your hand placement allows you to choose the best feel based on the conditions, your arm length and your body size, and makes transitions more intuitive.
We’ve stripped all the scuff guards, used the lightest bladders and engineered this wing to feel as light as possible. While there will always be size and weight limitations on such a big wing, how it weighs on the beach is not a representation of how it flies on the water. The Nova Light Wing handles like a much smaller wing.
Balanced load distribution and lift for easier gybes, tacks and low-speed transitions. We’ve concentrated the weight in the centre of the wing, keeping the tips and canopy light for effortless manoeuvres and a low swing weight.
With a wing of this size, you need to make your transitions at slower speeds. When paired with a bigger hydrofoil in lightwind, you’ll have more time on the foil. A low stall speed helps you to maintain lift through the lulls.
You only need one Nova Light Wind wing in your quiver. The span width is tailored to be manageable for different riders, so choose the wing best for your size. The 8m is suited to a heavier rider while the 6m is suited more to a lighter rider. Every size is optimised for maximum low-end ability.
Travel upwind easily. Our trailing edge technology creates a better laminar airflow and more direct exit for the wind than a tight trailing edge. Testing has showed us that if a wing has a tighter trailing edge it creates a hook, which gives more backhand pressure, but also wants to pull you downwind instead of progressing you forward.
High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter inlet/outlet hose for rapid inflation and deflation. The bayonet style main inflation valve is compatible with most pumps - no adapter needed. All North Wings are supplied complete with a high-pressure inflation pump.
Chasing a stiffer rig, we’ve used an ultra-strong high tenacity Dacron for the inflated structures, resulting in less deflection and movement and a stiffer overall frame during flight. The lower stretch material keeps the shape clean and undisturbed under load. We've also built stiffness into the design through the load distribution on the frame when in use. The canopy is constructed using North High Tenacity Ripstop (N-HTRS) polyester yarn canopy material for lightness, high tear strength and longevity.
Additional seaming in the wingtips helps to stiffen the frame.
