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.
I spent two weeks on Sal without scoring a single decent windsurf session. For the day I had to leave a big swell was forecasted so we got to the beach before sunrise. The swell wasnt that clean yet and was hitting mostly the outside point and the shorebreak without forming a proper shoulder. It took a couple of hours until the wind filled in just a little. I didnt think I had good chances to make it through the shorebreak but somehow made it to the outside. What followed was a bit more than an hour Ponta Preta for only couple of surfers and me. I only could catch a handful of waves before had to leave the water, get all my gear in a taxi and head to the airport. A few waves that made my day and the trip.
