North Nugget 2012 Kitesurf Board

Get ready to experience the North Nugget, a board that will enable you to get out there and tear apart waves in the lightest wind when all your friends are still sitting on the beach.

This radically different approach to a conventional surfboard features an ultra wide roundtail, super low rocker and a unique bottom shape aimed at maximum glide, tight turns and upwind performance in light wind and small to medium surf.

North X-Surf 2012 Kitesurf Board

Let's face it: Most kitesurf boards are just a little too small to paddle, especially if you're not a featherweight. And if you're anything like us, you probably wish you could take just one board on a trip to cover your kiting AND surfing needs, right? Well, now you can!

At 29 litres, the North X-Surf is big enough for most intermediate to advanced surfers to easily paddle and catch waves in "every-day" surf, yet still small enough to comfortably kite surf strapped or strapless when the wind picks up.

North Kontact 2012 Kitesurf Board

North introduces the Kontact; A surfboard range that will take your kitesurfing to new levels!

The concept is quite simple; The overall look and feel of a bigger semi-gun, scaled down to around 6"0 for kiting. The result is a board that offers excellent grip and encourages you to go as fast as possible into turns and carves and give you more confidence in pushing the next turn. These boards excel in good conditions where speed and control is key, but still maintain enough direct response and snappiness to push your limits in smaller surf.

North Wam 2012 Kitesurf Board

The all-new WAM is suited to nearly all conditions from small onshore mush to powerful beach and reef breaks. The WAMs ability to adapt to nearly all conditions makes it the perfect travel board or the perfect one-board quiver.

The North WAM is North's interpretation of the modern all-rounder. A board you can use in every day conditions, strapped or strapless, equally at home in 2-foot beach breaks as it is in over head reef breaks.

North Whip 2012 Kitesurf Board

Searching for a little something to get you fired up on those small wave days? Well we were too and that's exactly how the North Whip was born!

Utilizing the latest twin tip construction, the Skimfish is a light and durable skim board that feels smooth and controllable through the chop.

The 2012 Team Series continues to reign supreme in the realm of progressive, powered new-school freestyle. A proven blend of power, speed, upwind ability and pop, it's no secret why the Team Series is the number one choice of NKB World Cup freestyle competition riders.

North Soleil 2012 Kitesurf Board

The North Soleil remains the high performance freestyle board, now completed with a constant rocker and a cylindrical concave, being the choice for progressive female riders.

As the performance standard of female new-school riders continues to evolve at a rapid rate, so does the demand for female specific boards to suit their unique needs. The Soleil has all the performance characteristics you would expect from a high end new school board, like huge pop and solid landings, while also featuring optimized size and flex designed specifically with female rider's unique demands in mind.

North Jaime Pro 2012 Kitesurf Board

The North Jaime Pro 2012 Series is bridges the gap between free-ride and freestyle. There are a number of reasons why the Jaime is the longest running and best selling twin tip model of all time. It could be it's super versatile feel, all-round performance and ability to adapt to a huge range of conditions. It could also be its incredibly smooth feel through choppy water and butter soft landings. Some even say it's the fact that despite the Jaime's comfy and easy free-ride feel it is still able to produce explosive pop similar to our more powerful new-school boards. But it's probably mostly due to the fact that Jaime (the man himself!) continues to relentlessly strive year after year to refine and improve his model not only for his own personal enjoyment and progression as a rider, but to please all those loyal fans out there that just can't get enough of the Jaime board and can't wait to see what's next!

North X-Ride 2012 Kitesurf Board

The North X-Ride 2012 is a true all-terrain machine that blazes through the roughest chop with ease and comfort. The round template and curvy scoop line are responsible for the X-Ride's unique blend of comfort and smoothness while also promoting its superior carving abilities.

North Gonzales 2012 Kitesurf Board

The North Gonzales 2012 is a true all-terrain machine. Medium width and soft forgiving flex the North Gonzales is a great free-ride board with plenty of comfort for cruising and jumping.
