What NP has to say about the Glide HP Surf Foil

WHAT‘S NEW?

Designed and tested by mad scientist/ pro foiler Kane De Wilde (@KDmaui), the new HP Wings offer a good balance of efficiency and high speed stability. The wings get progressively higher aspect as the size increases to keep takeoff manageable and reduce drag on the larger wings for a better speed range and higher efficiency.

GLIDE SURF creates a playground for building new surfing sensations. With a stable and fast take off no matter the surf conditions, the GLIDE SURF delivers superior gliding and controlled speed to ride waves as far as they can flow. On the wave, the Glide Surf allows you to fly through the sections and progress from straight riding to progressive foil-turns. Your imagination is now the only limitation to how you will use the waves and how far you will fly.

Pump from one wave to the next - see how long you can fly!

HP Wing Sizes

  • HP11 S: light or skilled riders, waist high+. Good for high speed winging, kiting, high performance surfing, tow in. Sportive foil for windsurfing. Good speed and maneuverability at still early lift.
  • HP13 M: average weight and intermediate+ riders, waist high to a little overhead. Good for winging, very experienced or light riders downwind, high performance surfing.Playful foil for windsurfing. Early lift and ease of use for beginners. Little higher aspect compared to the S version to keep the takeoff manageable and reduce drag.
  • HP15 L: average to heavier riders, intermediate, knee to head high waves. Good for winging, connecting waves surfing, experienced downwind riders.

OUR NEW MODULAR FOIL SYSTEM allows to interchange all wings, heads, masts and fuselages between the Glide Surf & Glide Wind range and even the mast and head of the Flight Hybrid are compatible.

This offer maximum flexibility - weather you want to use the foils on different boards and fin boxes or change from, windsurfing and wing foiling to surfing or stand up paddling. Plus, all parts are clearly color coded, so you can see on first sight, which ones to mount.

Mast tops

New CNC reinforced base construction.
Two deep titanium vertical tube connections to the mast for maximum strength, eliminating movement and offering perfect load transfer. Avoids vibration around the upper attachment area.

Choose your base system depending you your sport.

Hardware and Fuselage

All foils are supplied with a T-40 torx drive, and come with titanium plated stainless steel bolts for maximum strength to weight ratio, preventing any corrosion problems.

Perfectly blended wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wind saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminum used in the fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward protruding nose.

Mast

70cm aluminum mast. Optimized structure with two CNC female base system inserts ensuring maximum strength.

Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with x3 vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Sanded mast trailing edge to avoid planning turbulence noise. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminum.

Wings

GLIDE wings are made of pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. This setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride.

The front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded “angle of attack” and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back,

the angled down tail wings maintain a self- stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance.

During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing will always come back to a flat position, stabilizing the turn.

Modular

GLIDE HP is a fully modular system so you can expand your foil setup by simply adding new wings. Glide HP now offers a range of front wings from 1100cc all the way to 2300cc to cater for every level and size of foiler. Glide Wind comes with a longer fuselage and 80cm mast for windsurf foiling and Glide Surf comes with a shorter, more maneuverable fuselage and a shorter, 70cm mast to be able to access shallower breaks.

    Nothing could be better than the 2020 NP Glide...

    Posted by Evan on 28th Oct 2021

    ...but somehow they did it again. Tucker recommended the 2020 NP Glide last year, and it has been absolutely fantastic. My wife and I both kite foil, so naturally we needed a second one (I tried other foils, but nothing compared to the Glide). The 2021 is much different, flatter, thinner, higher aspect ratio, and I wasn't sure that I would like it. It's the opposite, I enjoy it more than the 2020! HP11 for 180 lbs kite-foiling.

    Niel Pryde HP13 foil set

    Posted by john stevens on 6th Oct 2021

    Exactly what I was looking for!! A user friendly, but solid performance foil. I needed a set that broke down for travel and something I can share with my wife, who is learning . This is the perfect set.
