Nobile Skimboard 2010Nobile Skimboard 2010
The new Nobile Skim board 2010 is epic for Kite Skimboarding. This is now no longer a trend; it's part of our sport. On any given spot - on a light wind day you can probably find one or two dedicated kite skim boarders.

This board for 2010 Nobile has maintained the winning shape that made Kite skim boarding accessible for everyone but has added a textured UV stable top sheet. This not only has the benefit of maintaining the good looks of your board over time but provides a non slip surface that is both easy to hold and gives extra traction should your feet be off the pads at any time.

This Nobile kite specific skim board is designed to be an inexpensive addition to your board bag that adds to your time on the water by working on the days when you wouldn't normally be able to ride.

With it's parallel sided outline and optional fins on our board enable better tracking and more stable riding whilst still maintaining a free and loose feel.

Ride with or without fins depending on your preference. With - providing positive tracking, better upwind ability and easier riding, without - for a skatier feel and the ability to ride in incredibly shallow water.

Conventionally, skim boards offer incredible light wind performance but can be handful if the water is choppy or the wind increases.

Textured Foil for Increased Grip:

The top foil of the Nobile Skimboard features a micro texture to reduce the chances of sliding off the board in the event that you land with your feet not 100% centred on the pads. The texture also increases grip when grabbing the board.

Optional Fins:

The Nobile Skimboard features optional fins. Traditional skimboard riders and those blessed with glassy flat water conditions will love the skatey feel of the board when finless. However, if you ride in "real" world, imperfect conditions, the fins add immense amounts of grip through chop and makes landings easier.

Nobile Fin Shims:

No matter how carefully you ride, anyone can have an accidental contact with the beach or other solid objects. As well as ruining a good session, the resulting damage and / or fin loss can be frustrating. Nobile's new Fin Shims distribute the load placed on the heads of the screws, across the wider surface of the deck of the board, protecting your board from damage in all but the most extreme situations. For 2010, Nobile have increased the length of the fin screws, ensuring deeper penetration into the G-10fins, reducing the chance of fin loss, or damage even further.

Nobile Skim 2010 Features:

UV resistant, textured top foil increases traction and protects colours from the sun.
Integrated thermo formed pads provide all-round traction with reduced possibility of stumbling on their raised edges
Optional fins means you can choose a traditional skatey feel or opt for more grip and ease of use.
3D Finger Grips makes grabs easier.
Unparalleled light wind performance
Price includes fins!
