Nugget Overview 2012

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.

Full, boxy rails and an ultra flat deck maximize the volume of the Nugget and the quad fin configuration giving you maximum lift to keep you planing through lulls and flat sections on the wave.

Don't let the looks deceive you. This board absolutely rips strapped or strapless. If you are serious about maximizing your time on the water and want a board that truly performs when others will not, you NEED a Nugget.

A great compliment to everyone's quiver, once you get a taste of the Nugget, it is sure to become a regular fixture in yours! At 5'0" the Nugget is also a great option for minimizing excess baggage costs.

North Bamboo Construction Technology:

North Kiteboarding 2012 surfboards are made using bamboo on both, the base and the deck of the boards. Bamboo has a high strength to weight ratio, which has obvious benefits in making a durable board that will withstand hard heel impacts and pressure dents, while still keeping the overall board weight to a minimum.

Bamboo itself offers excellent dampening properties which allow Sky Solbach who's shaping NKB surfboards already in the third product generation, to create boards that feel light and lively under your feet, while not feeling overly bouncy or chattery through the chop, effectively smoothing out the ride. Bamboo is now becoming more widely used throughout the surf industry for the exact same reasons. Additionally, bamboo is of course a natural and easily renewable resource. We at North Kiteboarding feel, it just should be natural to care about your planet, especially when loving and living an outdoor sport so closely connected to nature like kitesurfing. Finally, on top of all of these benefits, the immaculate finish and bamboo wood grains, give each one of our boards a unique and distinct look. Every single one is not less than unique, already nearly a custom board.

Strapped or strapless, the challenge of riding a surfboard is there even if the conditions are not! The NorthNugget will be the ultimate board for both an introduction to kitesurfing on waves as well as strapless riding. There are tons of hours of fun and challenge canned inside this board!
