An Airwave 1700 set is perfect for small- to medium-sized swell
The Airwave 1700 set mixes high-performance pre-preg carbon with precision milled anodized aluminum. The wings, mast, and fuselage designs have evolved over several iterations, combining stability, durability, price, and performance
The Airwave 1700 set will accommodate heavier riders as well as make a great platform for wing foiling. Designed for surf, SUP, and wing foiling, an Airwave can be fine-tuned with the three included shims. Make sure to browse the rear wing page to mix and match your perfect foiling setup!
Airwave 1700 set vs Airwave 1325 set
The efficient wing design in combination with an incredibly stiff fuselage built from marine-grade aluminum allows for an extra amount of control and stability, making the Airwave 1700 set perfect for a wide variety of foiling.
With low-speed take-off and excellent rider feedback, the NSP Airwave lifts early. As the FW 1700 benefits from a higher surface compared to 1325, it is perfect for heavier riders struggling to get on foil.If you are a lighter rider (below 165 lbs / 75kg), look into the 1325 set as it won't require you to counter lift when picking up speed.
The surface of 1700 cm² in combination with the 330cm² back wing leverages your pumping action while creating appropriate lift and stability at very low speeds, making this the ideal setup for small waves and swell that doesn’t have that lift you see from bigger waves.
Precision manufacturing means 100% alignment of the wings and heavy-duty construction. The NSP Airwave is ideal for both entry-level and advanced foilers.
NSP was born in 2001 from the vision of Bruce “Buzz” Hansen, a life-long surfer, skater and all round waterman. While working on Maui as a custom surfboard builder, Buzz had an epiphany about producing affordable, versatile, durable and great performing surfboards. Thus, NSP was born.
