North Kiteboards

North Select

"The North Select has a completely new design concept and construction for this year. The outline has been straightened the tips have been made wider, this gives the board a much larger surface area, which improves it's early planing and makes the board faster. The larger sizes of the North Select are perfect for heavier riders and allow them to get up and riding in light winds. While the tips have been made wider, they have also been rounded to ensure a smooth ride through chop and aid the carving characteristics. The flex has been tuned to give the board an even more comfortable feeling through chop and give the board fantastic pop. It has a lively crisp feel underfoot and is very responsive to rider input. Jumping on the Select is fantastic; the flex works with the rider to ensure you get good pop every time. The board offers excellent grip and rides extremely fast when powered, but is still forgiving allowing you to improve as a rider. This is the 5th generation of Textreme Carbon boards and we have managed to create the lightest, most responsive Select to date. The North Select is the most technologically advanced kiteboard out there, ride it and feel the difference you have been missing!"

 

North Jaime 2014 Kiteboard

"The North Jaime is in a class of its own, it's been the pro model for Jaime Herraiz for 9 years! Over that time the board has been tweaked and developed, but has always retained the core focus, to be one of the best boards for Jaime, himself, to ride. The board uses the same Sandwich Construction that revolutionised the kiteboarding industry all those years ago and now features a Carbon Beam to improve the torsional stiffness and flex. All of our construction knowledge is put into ensuring the Jaime is one of the best-manufactured boards around. Freestyle, freeride, carving, the Jaime excels at it all whilst still retaining a comfortable ride that will surprise many kiters. The team at North Kiteboarding have refined the test-winning concept from 2012 to create the best Jaime yet. The harder you ride the board, the faster and higher it goes. The Jaime has a progressive flex and Double V bottom that makes jumping easy and for a board with so much performance it is very forgiving. Take it out for a chilled cruise, or fire it up for some high wind mega loops it won't disappoint. If it is good enough for Jaime, it is good enough for you!"

 

North Gambler 2014

"The North Gambler has been in the line up for a few years now, every year the design team and our riders work together to improve the way the Gambler rides. Demanding riders like Tom Court and Craig Cunningham use the Gambler on rails both with a kite and at the cable. It's the perfect board for wakestyle riding, smooth, easy to use and the rocker and flex work in harmony with the outline in the tips to offer easy landings no matter how hard you ride. The deep rails combine with the Wake bottom to offer unsurpassed grip, allowing you to ride the Gambler without the 3.5 cm fins provided, if you choose to. We built the Gambler to be tough, so it can handle the abuse demanding wakestyle riders throw at it. Featuring our Slick Base construction, kickers and sliders are what the Gambler lives for. Don't gamble on performance, ride the North Gambler and be the best..."

 

North TeamSeries 2014

"The North TeamSeries is our flagship board for the most demanding freestyle and wakestyle riders out there. Used by Mario, Stefan and Reno on the PKRA World Tour it is the ultimate board for the best riders on the planet. This year the board has been made even more robust to meet the demanding needs of the best riders. The TeamSeries is now stiffer offering unrivalled pop; the torsional stiffness of the board has also been increased to offer even more control and response. The soft tips have been stiffened up a little more than in previous years. They still offer comfortable landings, but even more control at the critical point of impact, increasing the chances of you landing the trick. The Quattro V bottom shape ensures you have plenty of grip in the water and helps to break surface tension when landing powered and fast. Of course the TeamSeries is also light, ensuring you can concentrate on your moves and not worry about the board on your feet. If you want to be the best rider in the world, you need the best board under your feet. The North TeamSeries is that board."

The Entity offers a variety of settings to perfectly fit on each foot, in addition it is quick and easy to mount and even looks damn good on your feet!"

North Kites

North Dice 2014

"The North Dice is a brand new kite for 2014, aimed at the rider wanting a do it all machine with C-Shape flying characteristics. Airton Cozzolino and Tom Court are using the Dice this year, showing you just how versatile it is. Happy performing wakestyle, freestyle or in the waves -- the kite entertains on all levels. It is based around a C-Shape profile, using a lightweight three strut construction. The kite feels lively in your hands, very direct and predictable in the air. The bar feedback is instinctive and riders find the kite easy to fly right out of the bag. Kite- loops are really easy with the Dice, and it is great fun to ride in the waves or flat water. If you want a kite that will give you the maximum amount of fun in any conditions, choose the North Dice, responsive, fast and great fun!"
