ON THE WATER Super smooth, super tough, fluid riding with the most insane pop. Tested in choppy conditions the 50Fifty cuts through it all giving you a smooth and fast ride. Light under your feet, the 50Fifty cuts up wind effortlessly holding stacks of power, jumps are insane and landings are sweet due to the great flex this board provides. Flat water conditions really allow you to fully push this board and get the most out of it, if you're into busting aggressive wakestyle moves then this board will put a huge grin on your face.
FIXTURES & FITTINGS Super soft ergonomic 3D footbeds with shock absorbing air chambers. Think of top brand sports trainers and you start to understand the comfort you can expect here. 35mm G10 Epoxy fins and a superb rocker power this board up wind like a hot knife through butter. Tested in choppy conditions the 50Fifty is the ultimate in smooth riding. As products evolve, it’s innovation that sets certain brands apart. Nobile use an ingenious ‘tool free’ fin system. No screwdriver required!
KITESHAKE VERDICT Total excitement as we took this board out for its test run. With so many hot reviews already in circulation, and the 2011 model claiming iKsurf TwinTip of the year, we expected big things of the 2012 model. Truth is, this board just rocks in so many ways, it’s a beautiful design, effortless performance and bomb proof construction. The 50Fifty just has so much pop, choppy south coast conditions become a playground and if you're looking to push and improve your moves then this board is a great mentor. Be warned though, this isn’t a board for the shy, it’s super bright and bold and when you rock up at the beach with the 50Fifty people will know you mean business.
