Kitesurfing Reviews - North Kiteboarding Atmos Hybrid 138 x 41cm 2020
North Kiteboarding Atmos Hybrid

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…

The Carve from North Kiteboarding is a three strut wave kite; the clue is in the name, designed to offer fast turning, excellent drift and impressive depower. Suitable for both strapless freestyle and waves it’s the kite in the range you want to be looking at if you spend your days with a surfboard beneath your feet. It’s a medium…

North Kiteboarding have put a lot of effort into their surfboard range, and it shows. Shaper Jaimie Scott has been working hard behind the scenes to bring three shapes that will cover all bases in the surf no matter what the conditions throw at you. The Charge is, as the name suggests, the stick to take out on the bigger…

North Kiteboarding Comp

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…

Kitesurfing Reviews - North Kiteboarding Cross 5’2 2020
North Kiteboarding Cross

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. Hugh Pinfold was tasked with coming up with a new control…

North Kiteboarding Orbit

We had seen a few prototypes of this kite being used by the likes of Jesse Richman and Nick Jacobsen at the King Of The Air in South Africa. The Orbit is as the name suggests, is a freeride and big air kite for boosting. It’s a 5-strut design with a high aspect swept wingtip design and a flattish profile.…

North Kiteboarding Atmos Carbon

Nick Jacobsen’s weapon of choice is always going to generate a lot of interest: he’s rolling on a tricked out version of the Atmos big air and freeride board from North Kiteboarding. The full carbon layup includes multiple flavours of the wonder material in different layups to create a light and stiff board that looks murdered out in the full…

The Dice has long been a popular kite in the North Kiteboarding line up.

North Kiteboarding Evo

The Evo has undergone a huge overhaul this year with an aim to define its place within the North Kiteboarding line up. In previous years it’s always been the all-round weapon of choice but often sat too close to the Rebel to allow it to stand out on its own. This year we see a radical change in the design…
