OFFICIAL NORTH PARTNER
North Test Center
As the official North Catamaran we are proud to offer our guests the option of trying out some of the worlds best kites during your time on board. This season we have at your disposition a variety of sizes in the Rebel, Vegas, Evo and the new Dice. In addition we have a selection of twin tip and directional boards at your disposal.
Guests are welcome to randomly test the gear at no charge. For those that want to leave their gear at home and ride something new each day we offer a 'Freeride package' (see rates page for details)
The king of Freeride!
The Rebel has an impressive wind range, the widest available from any of the North line up. Huge hangtime and lift, great upwind performance, quick turning, direct feeling, easy handling, responsive steering when depowered and a short depower stroke giving you total control in harsh conditions. The Rebel perfectly combines power and handling to make the perfect kite for 'hooked-in' riders looking for their perfect wave and freeride partner.
The Ultimate New School Progression Kite
The Vegas is the major freestyle kite in the North Kiteboarding line up however many top freestyle riders use it as their go-to kite for all conditions. Whilst the Vegas is a freestyle machine it is also a little more than that. By tuning the kite you can create a few different set ups and allow it to suit different riding styles.
New this season - Freestyle/wave
The Dice was kite of the year in 2015 and is aimed at the rider wanting a do it all machine with C-Shape flying characteristics using a 4 line bar. The kite feels lively in your hands, very direct and predictable in the air. The bar response is instinctive and riders find the kite easy to fly straight out of the bag. Kiteloops are exceptionally easy with the Dice, and it is great fun to ride both in the waves and on flat water. If you want a kite that will give you the maximum amount of fun in any conditions, choose the Dice, responsive, fast and great fun!
The ultimate all rounder!
The Evo is the kite to own if you change your riding style as often as you change your clothes! The kite has a smooth, predictable feel that riders fall in love with, the power delivery is progressive and the kite has more of a C kite feel to it than the delta hybrid it really is. The Evo incorporates the new adaptive tips and also a streamline strut system which allows to control the flow of air over the kite much better. This means better turning speed as well as responsiveness and rewards the rider with a much more lively feeling kite. The evo is a kite suited to all levels and suits both hooked and unhooked riders . Easy to relaunch in the lightest of winds this is also a great kite for learning new tricks.
