Introducing the 2022 North Surf Collection…
Hot off the press for 2022 is a totally new dynamic bridle system on the Carve, which gives the kite a very light, but direct steering initiation. The North Design team says their main objective this year with the Carve was to get a more pivot-y turn out of the steering and a more exponential depower on the bar.
For 2022, they’ve introduced a multi-cascade, load-diminishing bridle which gives you a lot of movement at the kite in a shorter amount of travel on the bar. They have also further reduced the weight of the Carve by using lighter bladders in more sizes and reducing the amount of heavy reinforcement material, thereby improving the overall behaviour of the kite in light wind and down-the-line riding.
Brand Director Mike Raper is excited to share the new range: “I think anyone who has experienced that feeling of riding down the line, on and on and on, will feel an instant connection to our new Surf collection. With the North 2022 Range, we invite you to let go of yourself, and merge with the power of the elements. For Surf, that element is water. It feels primal, that urge to be one with the ocean. And the new Carve and surfboards are designed to provide the connection.”

The chase is on…
The 2022 Carve features a new Active Load Distribution Bridle system, fine-
tuned for the most direct pivot steering possible, to deliver a faster livelier
feel, greater stability and wind range. We’ve further reduced weight
for improved static balance and performance, without affecting strength
and durability. New lighter weight bladder material in more sizes.

full-length bottom channel with centre-V, and fast-release tail for
