2021 North Scoop Foil Board
Description :For instant touchdown recovery, prevents nose-diving and helps to lift you back up on the foil.
Be blown away by the riding experience of this direct and responsive board with instant touchdown recovery. The Scoop allows you to connect through the intuitive concave deck for stable smooth transitions and easy steering, and delivers high performance foiling with a lightweight reinforced EPS core. In 2021 we’ve introduced a new ultra-lightweight yet durable hybrid carbon construction for increased stiffness, manoeuvrability and glide. A high-density structural PVC stringer system helps spread the load, while an ultra-lightweight double bamboo reinforcement layer adds greater impact resistance and rigidity. Touchdown recovery with new Deep-V bottom contours and bevelled rails, so it releases faster without sticking. The Scoop is your ideal expedition partner for comfortable long distance foil missions or an after work sundowner, and a trusted platform for strapped big wave tow-foiling – from Pe’ahi to your local 2ft beach break.
The highly concave deck allows more intuitive foot positioning and also acts like a counterbalance, so you don't feel like you are heeling over as far on the board.
The nose spine and double-concave in the underside of the nose, combined with the steep bevelled rails, helps with touchdown recovery. The V-shape in the bottom contour of the board breaks the water surface on touch down, so the board dives in gently and releases quickly, without sticking. The V also helps to funnel air under the board, which helps it to release faster.
Speed-dial your foil setup. Simply drop your foil pre-assembled with screws and t-nuts into the track, slide it backwards, then tighten the screws to fasten. Our unique structurally-integrated DropBox has a longer track for a wider adjustment range, allowing you to precision-tune the foil set up for your rider weight. A measurement guide next to the track aids correct positioning. Industry-standard 90mm track spacing means the DropBox is compatible with most foil systems.
Lighter weight construction for stiffness, manoeuvrability and glide. The stiffer the board, the better it will pump and the more responsive it feels. A light yet durable epoxy composite laminate, with a balanced carbon and e-glass fibre layup is wrapped around an EPS core. High-density closed cell PVC reinforcement around the foil track mount, leash plug and foot strap inserts spreads the load. An ultra-lightweight double bamboo reinforcement layer under the standing area adds greater impact resistance and rigidity.
The DropBox foil mounting tracks are embedded into a high-density closed-cell PVC block. Two high-density PVC stringers are glued to each side of this block, distributing the load lengthwise, and the full system connects the top and bottom laminate skins for maximum support.
For a more intuitive and direct connection to your foil, maximum-grip longitudinal corduroy with centre-line ridge allows fast, easy tactile foot placement. Tail kickpad with cutouts on the Swell for your feet while prone paddling. Transverse markers on the deckpad provide a visual reference, giving you confidence to adjust.
Additional off-centre strap inserts allow you to customise your stance with 5 different positioning options for each strap - or go strapless. (Straps sold separately)
