After getting my Hep A vaccine we managed to get a fun session in some little sludge pond somewhere in Baja Mexico. Thanks to Brandon Scheid for the ride along shots, and Sensi Graves for the rest of the footage scum pond footage and Reider Decker for the surfboard junk.
The thirst for water. The longing for it, insatiable. The image of it, mercurial and hypnotic. A feeling that's no longer satisfied just by drinking it. The oceans have become our most visceral and inspiring playground. Unlimited freedom – infinite possibilities. Wide open liquid metaphors of self-discovery and reliance. Out here the thirst is finally satisfied.
We know this because, like you, we've always had an obsession for water. We've invested 40 years in finding new ways to improve our relationship with water on every level, so that ultimately we can have more time with it, on it, and in it.
The result is new line of aesthetically engineered water-sports apparel that's earned its respect from water – NP.
Waterborne, technical, functional. Developed to enhance the performance and appearance of an increasingly thirsty breed of explorers and adventurers like you who are not just looking to push the boundaries, but to blur them as well. On water, off water, NP is tested hard on board, kite, paddle, sail, and just as important – street.
Because it's only good enough for you, if it's good enough for us first.
Whatever your ride, wherever you're riding, keep the thirst alive.
