Description

Function :

The high performance of a modern SUP Longboard, facility at its finest.

Introduction :

A modern, pure Longboard, shaped by a passionate Longboarder, it will only make your moth water 😉

Paddling the NFA is done in total stability while maintaining heightened speed. We are well balanced and we can concentrate on the rowing. The best way to pass the bar quick and catch the waves easily.

In surfing, you drop into the bottom without forcing. The Board takes off immediately and with a bit of small pressure on the rail it engages into the curve. Two cross steps and you are on the nose for a ride on the flying carpet! Its width at the nose makes it a real platform for sticking Hang Tens and 360°s.

For beginners this front width is the guarantee of an essential stability. You are super comfortable and can take a light passenger for a ride: it’s a cool Board.

But don’t imagine it to be tame, because as soon as you put her tail into action, it will be cut back city, rollers and re-entrys. All you have to do is move the back foot back and its diamond tail does the job.

Always comfortable, always mellow, always with a sharp profile, the NFA perfectly combines the high performance of a compact Longboard, but with accessibility. A unique and resolutely Longboard style mix.

The NFA has long been the world’s best-selling SUP board. We offer it in 4 sizes in FSP 2X: 9’0, 9’0 XL, 10’0 and 10’0 XL to satisfy all sizes / levels. Note that our SUPs are shaped by L’Ours, a true perfectionist and pioneer of the SUP; so your Boards will always have a shape close to excellence. So, no need to add 20 liters to be good. The volume is ideally distributed to give you just the right amount and preserve handling.

These boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best weight / strength / performance ratio on the market. The gain is significant since it is on average 15% lighter than the 2019 FSPs. The addition of a biaxial fiber greatly strengthens the board, so no concessions have been made on the exemplary strength of the FSPs, on the contrary. It is by designing a new finishing technique, as close as possible to our prototypes made in our French factory, that we have succeeded in saving weight. We work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint that loads the board unnecessarily. Paint integrated into the resin, your board is enhanced with nobility and durability.

The NFA FSP 2X re equipped with the 3D Function pad 2020 which is more resistant and provides maximum comfort and grip. In addition, we offer them with 2 FCS 2 Boxes and a US Center Fin. The highest standard of Fin Boxes on the market. You can therefore mount your Fins in single, 2+1 or even Tri-fin according to your desires and your surfing and rowing style by accessing an almost infinite catalogue of top-of-the-range Fins.

Shape

  • Rocker : very pronounced for a Longboard for 100% maneuverability and comfort.
  • Rails : thin and soft for that clean and smooth surf feeling.
  • Volume : not excessive and ideal for early take offs and mad performance in smaller waves.
  • Outline : pure Longboard and wide nose for endlessly varied moves.
  • Tail : mini diamond tail for quick rail to rail and speed.
  • Nose : round nose for endless gliding and pulling 360°s.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards


Technology FSP 2X SUP :

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshape by numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing of the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy Board and EPS foam blank : solid and lightweight.
  • Deck, hull and rails in PVC sandwich under vacuum : incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: integral PVC/Fiberglass sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Hull : integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz biaxial fiberglass, and fiberglass reinforcements on the sensitive areas.
  • Rails : the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails : increased structural strength, very good shock resistance (paddle dings).
  • Carry Handle integrated in the PVC sandwich top : limits settling, avoid breakage in the surroundings.
  • Hot coat dyed in the mass : nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
  • Custom Mat finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and a better glide.

The FSP 2X Technology is easily repairable when new in case of a ding. The PVC foam of the sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks or dings.

This Techno offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of full vacuum PVC Sandwich.

Buying guide


Pour qui ?

Les NFA 9’ et 10’ :

Débutant + jusqu’au semi pro, la NFA est faite pour vous : la reine de la polyvalence longboard.

Elle va s’adapter à vos besoins, vos envies et vos conditions.

Donc c’est la planche pour tous ou presque.

 

Pour quoi ?

Les NFA 9’ et 10’ :

Elle peut tout faire et elle est facile. Pas besoin d’être champion du monde, ni d’avoir des vagues parfaites : elle marche !

C’est le longboard qui vous fera découvrir les noses sans être exigeante techniquement.

 

Quelle taille ?

  • La 9’0 convient à tout le monde. C’est la pièce maitresse de la gamme.
  • La 9’0 XL est la version rassurante de la NFA 9’. Super stable, elle vous assure un plaisir maximum.
  • La 10’0 déploie les qualités de la 9’0 avec cette amplitude propre aux 10’.
  • En XL, la NFA 10’ est certainement une des planches les plus faciles. Ultra stable, elle n’oublie pourtant pas son programme de longboard moderne.

 

Quelles copines de quiver ?

La NFA va avec tout et est indispensable. C’est le couteau suisse du SUP.

Cette immense polyvalence va lui permettre de manger beaucoup du territoire des autres planches, du côté de la balade cool, des noserides, des 360°, des petites vagues.

Alors ce n’est pas une planche qu’on va chercher à compléter car elle pourrait presque tout faire à elle seule. Ce sont des feelings différents qu’on va aller chercher dans d’autres planches, principalement dans des rythmes différents.

Son opposée serait une Alley ou une Fatal. Des planches hyper dynamiques qu’il faut sans cesse pousser dans leurs limites et dans les vôtres.

Une bonne idée de quiver, c’est NFA + Karmen. Là on a deux tempos mais des points communs sur la polyvalence.

Un peu plus ambitieux, ça serait NFA + Mob + Alley (ou Fatal selon la vitesse et la propreté des vagues). Un longboard polyvalent, un shortboard de vagues molles, et un shortboard rapide.

C’est aussi la copine idéale dans le quiver d’un surfeur qui veut un SUP maniable pour compléter ses planches de surf dans les micros vagues et se balader. Il retrouvera un contact vivant qu’il affectionne sans avoir à collectionner les SUPs pour tout faire.

 

Quel montage de dérives ?

Le tri fin 2+1 de longueurs identiques est une bonne base, surtout sur la 9’. Avant de la dérive centrale 4cm derrière les pointes des oreilles. Un set de Performer 2+1 est parfait.

Prenez votre taille de dérives conseillées ou juste au-dessus. Pas moins. Vous allez avoir besoin de grip pour l’exploiter.

Notez qu’avant le shape, c’est la matière des dérives qui fait la performance. Retenez que plus une dérive est raide, plus elle marche. Et oui un pro a besoin de bonnes dérives, mais un amateur a lui aussi besoin d’aller vite car la vitesse est la base de toutes les manœuvres.

Rappel des tailles de dérives FCS2 conseillées :

  • XS pour les moins de 55 kg / 120 Lbs
  • S pour les 55 kg – 70 kg / 120 Lbs – 155 Lbs
  • M pour les 65 kg – 80 kg / 145 Lbs – 175 Lbs
  • L pour les 75 kg – 90 kg / 165 Lbs – 200 Lbs
  • XL pour les plus de 85 kg / 190 Lbs

Ne prenez jamais plus court, sauf en kite éventuellement.

Un surfeur qui veut plus de vitesse, faire de plus belles courbes, surfer plus proprement, travailler sa prise de vitesse, prendra une taille au-dessus de la taille conseillée.

Dans un montage qui mélange des sets, considérez que la surface totale de vos dérives doit toujours être identique. Si vous allongez la centrale, vous devez réduire les latérales.

Celles-ci font le grip et l’accélération ; et la centrale fait le pivot et le drive.

Ou sur la 9’ et la 10’ vous pouvez garder deux grandes oreilles et monter une centrale 6’’ou 7’’ Pivot, Clique, ou Connect, qui vont vous donner plus de douceur dans le rail to rail, et mettre les rollers en automatique : vous aurez plus de mal à casser les courbes mais ça sera plus clean. L’avant de la dérive centrale 1cm derrière les pointes des oreilles.

L’autre solution qui est la plus polyvalente sur les NFA 9’ et 10’ est de mettre des latérales de 100mm et de monter une centrale 7’’ou 8’’ Pivot, Clique, ou Connect, d’une taille au-dessus du précédent montage :

  • Oreilles de 100mm + centrale de 6’’ : pas assez de drive, ça dérape beaucoup.
  • Oreilles de 100mm + centrale de 7’’ : idéale pour un max de mania et de la liberté dans les courbes.
  • Oreilles de 100mm + centrale de 8’’ : gestion des turns parfaite et bons noserides.
  • Oreilles de 100mm + centrale de 9’’ : beaucoup de drive, surement trop.
  • Oreilles de 100mm + centrale de 10’’ : c’est trop sauf si vous faites 120 kg.

L’avant de la dérive centrale 1cm à 2cm derrière les pointes des oreilles.

 

Quelle longueur de pagaie ?

Entre votre taille et votre taille +5cm.

Un peu de longueur sur une 12’ n’est pas un luxe, mais jamais plus de +8cm dans les vagues.

+15cm en balade.

 

Quel leash ?

Prenez la longueur de votre planche et un 10’ pour la 12’. Moins de taille d’épaule, un diamètre réduit (6mm) vous fera gagner beaucoup de vitesse. Au-dessus, vous devez avoir 7mm minimum.

Vérifiez son état avant chaque session et changez-le tous les ans. C’est votre gilet de sauvetage.


For Whom?

The NFA 9’ et 10’:

Beginner + to semi pro, the NFA is made for you: the queen of longboard versatility.

It will adapt to your needs, your desires and your conditions.

So this is the board for almost everyone.

 

For What?

The NFA 9’ et 10’:

It can do anything and it’s easy. No need to be world champion, or to have perfect waves: it works!

It’s the longboard that will make you discover noses without being technically demanding.

 

How Big?

  • The 9’0 is suitable for everyone. It’s the centerpiece of the range.
  • The 9’0 XL is the reassuring version of the NFA 9′. Super stable, it ensures maximum enjoyment.
  • The 10’0 displays all the qualities of the 9’0 with the amplitude of the 10′.
  • In XL, the NFA 10′ is certainly one of the easiest Boards. Ultra-stable, it doesn’t forget its modern Longboard program.

 

Quiver Partners?

The NFA goes with everything and is indispensable. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of the SUP.

This immense versatility will allow it to eat a lot of the territory of other Boards, on the side of the cool ride, Noserides, 360°s, small waves.

It is not a Board that we will try to complete because it could do almost everything by itself. It’s different feelings that we’re going to look for in other Boards, mainly in different rhythms.

Its opposite would be an Alley or a Fatal. Hyper dynamic Boards that you have to constantly push within their limits and yours.

A good idea for a quiver is NFA + Karmen. There we have two tempos but we have common points on versatility.

A little more ambitious would be NFA + Mob + Alley (or Fatal depending on the speed and cleanliness of the waves). A versatile Longboard, a soft wave Shortboard, and a fast Shortboard.

It’s also the ideal girlfriend in the Quiver of a surfer who wants a maneuverable SUP to complete his surfboard collection with something that works in tiny micro waves. They will find a lively partner that he likes without having to collect SUPs to do everything.

 

Which Fin Mounting?

The 2+1 Fin mounting with identical lengths is a good base. In front of the Center Fin about 4cm behind the tips of the Laterals.

Take your recommended Fin size or just above. No less. You will need grip to control it.

Note that before the shape, it is the material of the Fins that makes the performance. Remember that the stiffer the Fins, the better it works. Yes, a pro needs good Fins, but an amateur also needs to go fast because speed is the basis of all maneuvers.

Reminder of the recommended FCS2 Fin sizes :

  • XS for those under 55 kg / 120 Lbs
  • S for 55 kg – 70 kg / 120 Lbs – 155 Lbs
  • M for 65 kg – 80 kg / 145 Lbs – 175 Lbs
  • L for 75 kg – 90 kg / 165 Lbs – 200 Lbs
  • XL for those over 85 kg / 190 Lbs.

Never take shorter, except when kiting.

A surfer who wants more speed, more beautiful curves, cleaner surfing, working on his speed gain, will take one size above the recommended size.

In a setup that mixes sets, consider that the total surface area of your Fins should always be the same. If you lengthen the Center Fin, you have to reduce the laterals.

These do the grip and acceleration; and the Center Fin does the pivot and drive.

Or on the 9’0 and 10’0 you can keep two big Laterals and mount a 6” or 7” Pivot, Click, or Connect Center Fin, which will give you more smoothness in the rail to rail, and make the rollers in automatic: you will have more difficulty to break the curves but it will be cleaner. The front of the Center Fin 1cm behind the tips of the Laterals.

The other solution which is the most versatile on the NFA 9’0 and 10’0 is to put 100mm sides and mount a 7” or 8” Pivot, Clique, or Connect Center Fin, one size larger than the previous mounting:

  • 100mm Laterals + 6” Center: not enough drive, it’ll skid out alot.
  • Laterals of 100mm + Center of 7”: ideal for a maximum of mania and freedom in the curves.
  • Laterals of 100mm + Center of 8”: perfect management of the turns and good noserides.
  • Laterals of 100mm + Center of 9”: a lot of drive, probably too much.
  • Laterals of 100mm + 10” Center: it’s too much unless you weigh 120 kg.

The front of the Center Fin 1cm to 2cm behind the tips of the Laterals.

 

How Long Should Your Paddle Be?

Between your size and your size +5cm. A little length on a 12’0 is not a luxury, but never more than +8cm in the waves.

+15cm when cruising.

 

Which Leash?

Take the length of your Board and a 10’0 for the 12’0. Less shoulder size, a reduced diameter (6mm) will make you gain a lot of speed. Anything above, you must have 7mm minimum.

Check its condition before each session and change it every year. This is your lifejacket.
