The 2020 Navigator Bar was packed full of neat features and was a very well thought out design. For 2021 North have made minor adjustments and improvements which make this bar even better, which was hard to do with something that already worked incredibly well. Previously there were 2 bars to choose from in size, 45-50cm & 50-55cm. 2021 sees…

We’ve been hugely impressed with the scope of the North Kiteboarding product range, something they have developed over an exceedingly short amount of time. The Atmos is their freeride and big air twin tip, available in two constructions: Hybrid and Carbon. The Hybrid version here uses carbon taping in high load areas to reinforce the glass lamination over the Paulownia…

Strapless freestyle is a force to be reckoned with these days, the GKA World Tour put it firmly on the map a few years back, and it’s here to stay. While you can ride any surfboard without straps and make it work, increasingly more brands are specifically creating sticks for the needs of the pro riders. The Comp from North…

One thing North Kiteboarding have done well is the naming of the products; everything is almost self-explanatory. Charge big waves on the Charge, win strapless freestyle competitions on the Comp, and if you want something in between, well then the Cross is that crossover board between strapless freestyle and charging big waves. It borrows similarities from the other two boards…

The Bar We were incredibly impressed to see North Kiteboarding had brought their kite bar to the table. Kite bars are incredibly expensive to produce and have to perform in such a vast range of conditions it would have been easy for the brand to go the OEM route.
