Great question and here is a quick answer, if you come across any Nomad riders ask them as well i can imagine you shall get a similar answer.
With high performance we consider the highest upwind angle , super smooth in chop , fast with stability and easy on the legs , just about zero spray , the speed means minimal resistence hence very good lightwind qualities, the super smooth in chop means great and easy control when the conditions are high wind and getting a bit hairy. The board weight is in the 2 kilo area making it very easy to turn in the air and position , or just pop it out of the water without using the kite .
With our Prototype model the drive rail is 8 times stiffer than the toe side rail, giving the board great pop whilst railing hard but real flex and forgiving in flat landings.
Put all that together and the board is easy to use , we shall guarrantee that within hours of using a Nomad board you shall become a better kitesurfer, its one of those boards you just want to get out and ride .
Please check out the various reports from magazines , a quick team-series test for you here
