North Wam 2012 Kitesurf Board

North Wam 2012 Overview

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.

The 2012 Wam features medium / low rails, a more pronounced single to double concave bottom and an optimized tri/quad fin configuration, allowing you to customize the Wam to your desired feel.

Tri-fin mode offers more hold and drive, while quad-fin mode offers a more skatey and loose feel ideal for smaller surf. Building on the success of last year's Wam, the new refined foil and slightly curvier rocker tightens the turning radius and increases snap, while still maintaining enough drive and hold to keep things in control when the swell really starts to push.

Super smooth and lively under your feet, the slightly fuller outline, semi boxy rails and pulled in thumb tail carry lots of speed when the waves are small yet still provide hold and drive when you need it most in bigger surf.

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.

Key Facts:
- High Performance All-Rounder
- Tri/Quad Option
- Thumb Tail
- One for all
