Description

The high performance of a modern LongSUP, but with the convenience of accessibility.

A pure modern Longboard, shapely by a passionate Longboarder, it can only excite your taste buds 😉

When paddling, the NFA is totally stable while keeping a good speed. You’re well balanced and you can concentrate on rowing. The best way to pass the bar and catch the waves easily.

In surfing, you drop into the bottom without forcing. Immediately the Board takes off and with a little pressure on the rail it enters into the curve. Two cross steps and you are at the nose for a flying carpet ride! Its width at the nose makes it a real Board for sticking noses and 360°s.

For beginners, this front width is the guarantee of an indispensable stability. You’re super comfortable, you can ride with a light passenger; it’s a cooool Board.

But don’t imagine it’s so gentle, because as soon as you put its tail in action, it will be a festival of cut backs, rollers and re-entries. All you have to do is back your back foot and its diamond cut does the job.

Always comfortable, always smooth, always clean riding, the NFA perfectly mixes the high performance of a compact Longboard with the accessibility of an NFA. A unique mix and resolutely Longboard style.

The NFA has long been the Best-Selling SUP board in the world. We offer it in 7 sizes in FSP Pro: 9’0 XS, 9’0, 9’0 XL, 10’0 XS, 10’0, 10’0 XL & 12’0 to satisfy all sizes/levels.

The flagship sizes are available in three widths and thicknesses so that you can find the ideal Board for your level and rider size. And the big news : the return of the 12’0. Swifter and more advanced than its previous well-known shape, it will give you the ultimate in this original SUP glide.

Note that our SUP Boards are shaped by L’Ours, a true SUP pioneer and perfectionist, 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 Pro for the best possible dynamics. The performance gain is striking. As is the gain in solidity with a full Carbon Sandwich on both sides and rails. The resistance to bending is phenomenal and your EPS Foam is fully protected by a High-Density PVC Foam Shell. Everything covered with a layer of 3K Carbon on top and a light grey brush. Strong, light and resolutely top of the range.

The NFA FSP Pro are equipped with the 3D Function Pad 2020 which is more resistant and provides a great comfort and a maximum grip. Moreover, we offer them with 2 FCS II Boxes and a US Central. The highest standard of Fin Boxes on the market. You can mount your Fins in single, 2+1 or Tri-Fin according to your wishes and your surfing style by accessing an almost infinite catalogue of top-of-the-range FCS II Fins.

Shape

  • Rocker : very pronounced for a Longboard for 100% maneuverability and comfort.
  • Rails : thin and soft all the way through for a clean Board and a real surf feeling.
  • Volume : without excess and ideal for early take off and crazy performance in small waves.
  • Outline : pure Longboard and wide nose for a variety of moves.
  • Deck : domed for thin rails and better rail to rail.
  • Bottom : spoon to single concave to double concave to V.
  • Tail : mini diamond tail for a very smooth rocker from rail to rail and a lot of acceleration.
  • Nose : round nose for endless gliding and 360°s.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

Technology FSP PRO SUP :

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshape by numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing off the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy board and EPS Foam Blank: solid and lightweight.
  • Deck, hull, and rails in Vacuumed PVC Sandwich: incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: full PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Hull: integral PVC/Fiberglass and Carbon Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC Foam core and 1 layer of 6oz carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.

  • Matt custom finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and better glide.

The FSP PRO Technology is easily repairable when new in case of Dings or accidents. The PVC Foam of the Sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks.

This technology offers, at an affordable price for Carbon, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of a 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.

La NFA 12’ :

Il faut aimer les longues planches et leurs effets. Car il y a longue planche et longue planche de 12’ !

Tout prend une autre saveur en 12’, et il y a de fortes chances que ça soit ce que vous cherchez si vous regardez cette planche. De longues courbes, de l’amplitude, un take off ultra précoce, une forte vitesse de rame, des appuis francs, de grands déplacements sur le spot et sur la planche…

Les légers la trouveront énorme.

Les costauds la mettront en base de quiver, avec une forte dose de revival.

 

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.

La NFA 12’ :

Les longboards aiment les longues vagues. Ils ont souvent besoin de place pour s’exprimer. Cette NFA 12’ est certainement la définition même de cette règle.

Mais comme elle glisse sur tout et n’importe quoi, c’est sans aucun doute la planche la plus rentable du monde du SUP.

12’ certes, mais résolument moderne. La NFA n’est pas une planche pour s’endormir. Au contraire, son shape ciselé lui donne les capacités de beaucoup de 9’ du secteur. Elle est précise et fine au tail. On peut la manier avec vigueur et beaucoup d’engagement.

Les balades sont évidemment un grand bonheur en NFA 12’, car même si elle n’est pas étravée, vous n’êtes surement pas venu battre un record de vitesse. Alors elle sera stable, et super polyvalente. Ce que vous apprécierez en croisant une petite onde.

 

Quelle taille ?

  • La 9’0 XS se destine aux légers, 70kg max. Un bon SUPer plus costaud pourra en tirer le meilleur bien entendu.
  • 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 XS, la NFA 10’ est ultra performante. Rapide, incisive, presque aérienne dans le vent, c’est impressionnant comme on peut remuer cette 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.
  • La NFA 12’0 est pour les esthètes, les amoureux de belles lignes que ce soient les vagues, les courbes ou la planche… Comme sa cousine Zéro 12’, la NFA 12’ pousse à la longue glisse. On savoure à l’infini et on pousse les tricks presque jusqu’au freestyle.

 

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.

 

Enfin la 12’0 NFA est à part et demandera plus de centrale et moins de latérales (des 100mm idéalement). La centrale sera entre 8’’5 et 10’’, l’idéal étant 9’’. L’avant de la dérive centrale sera 2cm à 3cm derrière les pointes des oreilles. Elle est aussi parfaite en single 9’’ pour mettre des 360°.

 

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.

The NFA 12 ’:

You have to like long boards and their effects. Because there is a long board and a long 12 ’board!

Everything takes on a different flavor in 12 ’, and chances are this is what you’re looking for if you look at this board. Long curves, amplitude, an ultra early take off, a high speed of oar, frank downforce, great movements on the spot and on the board …

The light will find it enormous.

The strong will put it in the base of quiver, with a strong dose of revival.

 

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.

The NFA 12 ’:

Longboards love long waves. They often need room to express themselves. This NFA 12 ’is certainly the very definition of this rule.

But as it slides over anything and everything, it is without a doubt the most profitable board in the SUP world.

12 ‘certainly, but resolutely modern. The NFA is not a board for falling asleep. On the contrary, its chiseled shape gives it the capacities of many 9 ’in the sector. It is precise and fine at the tail. It can be handled with vigor and a lot of commitment.

The strolls are obviously a great pleasure in NFA 12 ’, because even if it is not bowed, you surely did not come to beat a speed record. So it will be stable, and super versatile. What you will appreciate by crossing a small wave.

 

How Big?

  • The 9’0 XS is designed for light weight, 70kg max. A good, stronger SUPer can get the best out of it, of course.
  • 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 XS, the NFA 10′ is ultra-powerful. Fast, incisive, almost airy in the wind, it’s impressive how you can move this 10’0.
  • In XL, the NFA 10′ is certainly one of the easiest Boards. Ultra-stable, it doesn’t forget its modern Longboard program.
  • The NFA 12’0 is for connoisseur, lovers of beautiful lines whether it’s waves, curves or boarding. Like its cousin Zero 12’0, the NFA 12’0 pushes for the long glide. You can enjoy it endlessly and push the tricks almost to freestyle.

 

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.

 

Finally, the 12’0 NFA is apart and will require more center and less sides (100mm ideally). The Center Fin will be between 8”5 and 10”, ideally 9”. The front of the Center Fin will be 2cm to 3cm behind the tips of the Laterals. It is also perfect as a single 9” to lay down 360°s.

 

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.
