IT’S HERE – North Kiteboarding just released their 2022 Surf collection, and we’ve got pics and links right here!
At North, we understand the unbreakable bond between the elements and our tribe. We, too, feel the pull. The new North 2022 Surf Collection harnesses the power of water — the water inside you and the water that carries you. It’s in our blood, pumping. Surf 2022. Twice the power.
When the waves are like mountains, we ride. This is Surf.
Carve | Surf | Strapless Freestyle
- NEW finely-tuned Active Load Distribution Bridle System
- NEW lighter weight surf-tough construction
- Improved wind range
“The Carve lets me express my riding style – powerful but elegant. There is no holding back from the freedom it calls.” – Jalou Langeree
The Chase is On
Powerful, reactive and controllable, the Carve powers on and off instantly, so you can stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone. Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control and a huge depower range, the Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing – onshore, offshore and anything in between. Strong surf-freestyle characteristics help you perform strapless tricks and lofty jumps with ease, and enhanced down the line drift makes this versatile kite perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel.
For 2022 we’ve further reduced the weight and improved the behaviour of the kite. Our new Active Load Distribution Bridle system is fine-tuned for the most direct pivot steering possible and delivers a faster livelier feel, greater stability and wind range. The lighter weight surf-tough construction delivers improved static balance and lightwind performance in surf and foil conditions. And we’ve introduced a new lighter weight bladder material in sizes 9m and above.

Comp Dynalite | Strapless Freestyle
- New Dynalite Technology
- New lightweight, low-volume shape
- The new full-length bottom channel
“You have way more control – tricks I was only able to do at 35knots, I can now do in 20knots. Everything is easier.” – Camille Delannoy
Half the Volume, Twice the Performance
Our new Dynalite hybrid carbon board delivers dedicated strapless freestyle performance with explosive pop. Thinner, more durable and even more responsive for 2022, this ultra-light, low volume shape has evolved to help you execute your most impressive tricks in every condition. Compact in size and very grabbable, we’ve designed the Comp to stick with you through every manoeuvre and pop on-demand—higher jumps. Cleaner landings. New fast-release tail channels aid grip and control when launching freestyle tricks. The new full-length longitudinal bottom channel with centreline-V and smooth, progressive rocker design reduces bounce on hard, fast landings – making strapless landings easier to stick. Push beyond your limits with the Comp, your competitive edge.

Cross | Freeride Surf
- Quad concave bottom shape
- Compact Surf Outline
- Increased tail curve and smooth, progressive rocker
“The Cross is like an old friend.” – Jesse Richman
Skate the Surf
A smooth carving, super comfortable all-round freeride board that blends the line effortlessly between surf and strapless freestyle. Lively and responsive, with effortless acceleration and drive off the rail, the Cross was created to shred the waves in an ever-changing surf playground, ride real-world onshore conditions, flat water and chop. It provides generous volume and width for a fun, forgiving ride with great upwind speed and solid pop for freestyle tricks. Featuring grabbable rails on the top deck for easy air handling and cushy contoured deck pads for enhanced control. It carves, it jumps, it pops. With or without straps, the Cross is your everyday go-to and one-board quiver. The ultimate all-rounder, instantly familiar, intuitive and easy to ride.

Charge | Performance Surf
- NEW narrower performance surfboard outline
- Low-entry surf rocker
- NEW deep single to slight-double concave bottom
“Holding a line or exploding off the lips, this board will put a smile on your face.” – Jalou Langeree
Down the Line
A fast, dedicated surf shape with smooth turning and loads of projection, allowing a powerful vertical attack in down the line waves. Developed for surfing and engineered for kitesurfing, the Charge rides like a high-performance surfboard. Turning hard in the pocket and releasing on-demand, it excels in carving, has fantastic upwind drive for onshore riding, and is versatile enough to pop strapless freestyle tricks with ease. The Carbon Innegra Futurelite system maximises strength without losing flex or responsiveness. The full deck grip with front and rear kicks provide exceptional comfort and control. Commit to the wave and have the confidence to charge.
For 2022 the Charge has a slightly narrower width overall and finer, low volume rails, more concave forward of the front foot and slightly retuned fin angles for smoother, tighter turns.

Hexcel Coremat Fins
- Lightweight Hexcel Core
- Medium or large size
- Durable fibreglass sandwich construction
Custom fins – no inserts required
Lightweight hexagonal-core thruster fins are designed to maintain the flex characteristics of a glass fin with optimum strength to weight ratio. The custom fin base shape means no infills are required when using with FCSII Fin Boxes. Large fins are more raked and carve well withhold. Medium fins are more upright with less tip area, creating minimal drag for more speed and release.
