The Airwave FW 1700 Set mixes high-performance pre-preg carbon with precision milled anodized aluminium. The wings, mast and fuselage designs have evolved over several iterations, combining stability, durability, price and performance – have a look at our NSP Airwave FAQ.
Perfect in small to medium-sized waves, 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 the NSP Airwave can be tuned additionally with the three included shims.
Airwave FW 1700 Set vs Airwave FW 1325 Set
With low-speed take-off and excellent rider feedback, the NSP Airwave lifts early. The FW 1700 benefits from a higher surface compared to the 1325, making it perfect for heavier riders struggling to get on foil. The efficient wing design in combination with an incredibly stiff fuselage built from marine-grade aluminium allows for an extra amount of control and stability, making the Airwave 1700 set perfect for a wide variety of foiling.
The surface of 1700 cm² in combination with the 330 cm² 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.
A word on choosing your hydrofoil Airwave FW 1700 Set
With a wide range of foils available in an even wider price range, we recommend choosing a foil from an established manufacturer. As you will progress, you will want to adjust your mast length, wings, and other components and choosing an established brand means you will have that option.
“The agility and speed that this foil offers is unbelievable when driving the foil into hard cutbacks…”
