The NSP Fireball is the latest Airwing by NSP, developed and designed by the Teamriders and the NSP Product team. The new design offers a lightweight and rigid structure that delivers smooth and instant power that remains stable and flutter-free under all conditions.

The redesigned Leading Edge and Strut create a dynamic dihedral shape that promotes stability and accessible power in all conditions. Double reinforcements in the Leading Edge translate to a more rigid wing structure and less flex.
The new NSP Fireball wings are light and more maneuverable than their predecessor, delivering a solid and balanced feeling. Power is readily available even in light wind conditions, thanks to the added rigidity.
The Leading Edge stitching is relocated to minimize turbulence and to protect the rider we covered the seams as well.

The NSP Fireball covers more surfaces, is lightweight, and more maneuverable. The solid and balanced feel of the Fireball comes from its accessible power range, readily available even in light wind conditions. Rigidity is key here, and we have also relocated and covered the stitching of the Leading Edge to minimize turbulence and protect riders from repeated chafing.
NSP Fireball Technical Features
- Separate strut and leading edge bladder for optimal tuning
- An evolved shape for handling, balanced power, and efficiency
- The leading-edge profile and dihedral shape deliver efficient twist dynamics
- Tapered wing tips aid twist, reduce swing weight and windage
- Bladders are ultra-accessible through velcro/zipper-secured hatches
- The strut and leading-edge tips are reinforced with light and durable PVC wear patches
- Tips are protected by wear & tear strips and reinforced TPU pads on the corners.
Smart bag design
The expandable bag section in the bottom of the Fireball bag will protect a fully inflated strut. Whether it is in a truck bed, standing in a corner at the beach club, or driving to the next spot (nobody wants sand, water, or dirt in their car).
Learn more about this and other convenient features in this video.
Triple stitching protection
Additional two-ply strips in combination with triple stitching protect the trailing edge from stretching, wear-and-tear and it stops a potential rip in its tracks.
Hardcore Wingtip reinforcements
To protect the wing from rougher surfaces, TPU strips with vulcanized PVC protect the wing tips from punctures and wear.
Less time spent pumping means more time on the water. Two lightweight, high-diameter Halkey-Roberts valves allow fast inflating and deflating.
Smart SUP Pump Design
SUP valves that fit most SUP pumps are covered with premium PVC and secured with velcro covers.
Premium comfortable handles
Premium handles on the Strut and Leading Edge allow for hours of comfortable riding, sheeting in and out, gybing and getting as much power from your Fireball as possible.
Premium protective materials
Kevlar, PVC, and TPU abrasion protection materials to increase the lifespan of the Fireball.
Adding access windows for bladder removal makes replacing your bladder a matter of minutes, just in case you experience a pierced bladder.
Reinforced leash attachments
Double-secured patching makes sure your leash stays where it is supposed to be, even in the strongest gusts.
Note: how the leading edge handle is placed as neutral as possible, allowing for a completely depowered wing.
Harness loops on the strut
Reinforced and well-attached loops on the strut allow for the use of a kite harness.
TPU windows are now safer and more sturdy, enabling increased visibility.
Note: Pack your NSP Airwing properly for storage to get the most performance out of your NSP Fireball. Learn more.
The main benefit of a dihedral design compared to a less angled setup is its self-correcting character. Unlike a flatter surface and its tendency to fight the rider, air flows past the wing and balances it, resulting in a composed and powerful ride.
Additional Info & Getting Started
Out of the bag, the NSP Fireball is ready for action. First, secure the supplied leash. Using both valves, inflate your Fireball to a pressure no higher than 8psi. Find more information on how to set up your Fireball by downloading a short manual here.
By using both valves, inflate the leading edge and strut to create a strong, flex-resistant frame. Any common Halkey Roberts pump nozzles, used for high-end inflatable products like SUPs are going to fit, so do check if you have one of those at home.
Lift off by giving it a few shoulder rotations, and some light board pumps, and off you go. Once flying, Fireballs feel fast, and balanced and can easily be sheeted in for more power. Combined with the NSP SUP Foil Pro and NSP Airwave, you and your Fireball can start covering serious distances.
Replacement parts and maintenance
Designed to maintain its shape in all circumstances, the Fireball is stiff and features two bladders, making sure you can recover your equipment in case of a leak. If you run into any issues, NSP dealers will offer replacement bladders for both leading edge and strut sizes.
