FIREFLY


FREESTYLE / SURF / ALL-ROUND

Introducing the NeilPryde Firefly - an all new design optimized for freestyle and surf. The Firefly combines the NP high lift concept (introduced on the original Fly to deliver both take off early AND light responsive handling) with a host of new features developed over a year of close collaboration with our Freestyle and Wave test team - significantly reduced wingspan for rotational maneuvers and wave riding, the new NP Mono Handle that functions like a boom but adds the drop grip feature, and a simplified airframe with a stiffer feel for smoother drifting and tricks that require backwind riding. 

This unique feature set also makes the Firefly arguably the best wing on the market for schools and beginners - riders can use a smaller size and still be confident in their take off, the Mono handle makes that first grab and maneuvers as easy as possible, and the shorter wing span makes it better suited for kids and smaller riders.

Drawing on the accumulated expertise of the NP design team, the all new Firefly is optimized for freestyle, surf and schools. The firefly is packed with innovations that that elevate your wing foiling experience, whether you are an experenced rider pushing into rotational moves / stepping up your game in surf, or a new rider fresh to wing foiling, looking for the earliest take-off and easiest handing.

Part of the FLY family: The new Firefly shares its DNA with the renowned FLY and freshly updated FLY Il This means you're getting a wing that's backed by the legacy of proven performance and relentless development that defines the NeilPryde brand.

FIREFLY 2024 SPECS

NP HIGH LIFT CONCEPT

Drawing inspiration from the proven first generation FLY, the new Firefly evolves the concept with flatter entry sections and increased canopy tension - this makes the wing point higher into the wind and extends the range while still retaining the responsive easy handling and early take off.

CARBON MONO HANDLES

This lightweight and durable carbon handle provides all the advantages of a boom and then takes it a step further by integrating the drop grip and ergonomics of the industry leading handles on the NP Fly.

EVOLUTION

Firefly is optimized for wave riding / freestyle and easy handling. It is also our easiest wing for beginners / intermediate wingers and smaller riders or kids.

SHAPE DIFFERENCES

The Firefly has a greatly reduced wingspan for far lighter handling. Wing tips will will be less likely to touch in the water on rotations or side to side maneuvers on the waves. This reduced wingspan is also ideal for people who are learning to wing as this is the number 1 cause of falling when learning.

Mono Handle

Our new mono handle feels like a boom in your hands but adds the drop grip feature at the front for easy gybing / downwind flying. You'll love the way you can control the power in the wing with 1 hand while concentrating on chasing waves with the rest of your body.

Integral Batten System

Sewn-in composite battens create a flat, fast trailing edge with minimum flutter.

Staggered material weights on LE

The use of an ultra-light, high-tenacity woven polyester at the wingtips and back of strut results in a very light ‘feel’ due to reduced swing weight.

MONO HANDLE DESIGN

The new NP Mono Handle functions like a boom but adds the drop grip feature or ease of handling, tricks and downwind flying.

FLY II vs FIREFLY

Significantly reduced wingspan for rotational maneuvers and wave riding. Elevate your freestyle and wave riding game with the Firefly!

Also ideal for schools, centers and kids as beginners/intermediate wingers will be able to use a smaller wing compared to traditional shapes and avoid touching the wing tips on the water while learning to get up on foil.

KEY FEATURES

Carbon Mono Handles

NP High Lift concept

Drawing inspiration from the proven first generation FLY, the new FireFly features a more compact outline and increased canopy tension - this makes the wing both easier to handle and more responsive without compromising power or control.

PVC Windows

We’ve chosen PVC for ultimate strength, maximum visibility and safety on the water.

Tubular Bag

The new tubular bag means that – even with the longer mono handle – the FireFly can be packed into a compact space without having to install/remove the handle every time the wing is inflated. Sometimes simple solutions are the best!
