Lighter and faster-flying with increased lift, the bridled hybrid freestyle/freeride design of the 2024 Pulse delivers improved steering and depower response, a smoother aerodynamic profile entry, dynamic edge response, slack and pop.

The FlexPulse structure with low-sweep arc shape and upright design gives the kite a more powered turn through the entire wing, adding energy and efficiency through the entire kite loop so it can come around quicker to catch you and lofts nicely for a good landing.

“The Pulse makes me excited to go on the water, it gives me the opportunity to find new lines and different ways to look at tricks”
– Tom Bridge, Pro Rider

Our lightweight eco-core technology Freestyle TwinTips are engineered for responsive harmony between rocker, outline and flex, clean, powerful pop, and consistent, dependable rail grip so you can ride with ease and control in any conditions. All 2023-2024 North TwinTip boards feature our new FlipTech Mounting System, with centreline inserts. This means if you wear out one side of your board, simply flip your boots around for a fresh new heelside rail again.

Focus. Power, stability and drive.
“When I throw myself into a manoeuvre, this board carries me through my rotations with the perfect amount of swing weight. For all the days I want to push it with any style of tricks, the Focus is what I grab.”
– Jesse Richman, King of the Air 2020

Flare. “Go where you want, go when you want, and don’t go by any rules.”
“The Flare makes me feel comfortable and it’s nice to have a board where I can rely on the pop every time. Plus I can beat it up and it’ll still last forever, which is perfect for me”
– Tom Bridge, Pro Rider.

Fix. Bone out that grab. Relax your stance.
These kite-specific boots have an extended flex zone in the mid-boot for a bigger range of flexion, allowing more give on landings and more movement for tweaking grabs, for butters and presses. The low-cut design allows you to lean back and drive upwind in a more relaxed stance.

“The Fix are the lightest weight boots, with ample support, comfort and the ability to replace the fastening straps”
– Hugh Pinfold, North Director of Design and Engineering.
