North Kiteboarding have released their 2022 Big Air kites + twintips…

Everything you want is on the other side of Fear.

What does it take to let go of fear? To commit to the unknown? At North we believe the magnetic pull – for freedom, for letting go of yourself and merging with the power of the elements, for performance, for exhilaration – overcomes fear. This pull calls to us again and again. And we’ve responded in 2022 with bold new designs, engineered to harness the power of the elements. 

In stores now, the new Big Air collection and Trace Lightwind twintip are master-crafted to have your back when nature won’t play nice.

What’s new:

green - North 2022 is here  

ORBIT Big Air / Freeride

Seriously Light, Extreme Height.

For 2022 we’ve made small refinements to the bridle and further reduced the weight of the Orbit with N-FORCE 75 reinforcement and lighter weight bladders, so the kite feels even lighter and more responsive in all conditions.

SIZES: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14


navigator 2 450x530 - North 2022 is here NAVIGATOR Control System

Now ISO Certified.

The 2022 Navigator now complies with ISO 21853 for faster, safer release and intuitive single-action reload in all conditions.  Five new Toolless Interloops complete the modular system, allowing riders to switch effortlessly between disciplines simply by swapping out the loop – no tools required.
SIZES: 38-43, 45-50, 50-55 cm


trace2 382x530 - North 2022 is here  

TRACE Lightwind / Freeride *BRAND NEW FOR 2022

First in. Last Out.

With phenomenal pop and surprising manoeuvrability for its size, the all-new Trace has a large surface area for early planing and upwind performance in the lightest winds. It’s Centre-V Spine and longitudinal quad channels provide balanced torsional stiffness, traction and control, while the medium-low rocker is ideal for flatwater.

SIZES: 145×45, 145×46 cm




atmos1 450x530 - North 2022 is here  

ATMOS CARBON Big Air / Freeride

Gravity Defying
Designed to ride overpowered with ease and control, yet still enabling early planing and low-end performance, the Atmos Carbon’s refined carbon laminate layup provides an extremely fast response when loaded.

SIZES: 136×40, 138×41, 141×42, 144×43 cm




hybrid 2 450x530 - North 2022 is here  

ATMOS HYBRID Big Air / Freeride

Dynamic power in all conditions
Powerful upwind with precise edge control, the Atmos Hybrid’s harmonious equilibrium between rocker, outline and flex creates a board with quick response for explosive boosting, looping and stable, predictable landings.

SIZES: 133×39, 138×41, 141×42, 144×43 cm




astra 2 450x530 - North 2022 is here  

ASTRA Freeride / Big AIr

Light rider

Crafted for lighter weight riders with a responsive flex pattern for explosive pop, softer landings, and comfort in even the most aggressive chop. Smaller sizes and narrower foot positioning allows smaller riders to stay in control across every manoeuvre.

SIZES: 129×38, 132×39, 135×40, 138×41 cm



flex - North 2022 is here  


FLEX TwinTip Bindings

Finer GripFlex. Steeper Toe Bar.

In 2022 we’ve further refined the Flex to provide an even more secure comfort-fit with increased lateral support.





Brand Director Mike Raper is excited by the new range: “At North, we are all inspired by the power of the elements, and how when you work with each element, rather than resist it, it takes your performance and experience to a whole other level,” he says.

“Our 2022 Range draws inspiration from the unbreakable bond between the elements and our tribe, and while we continue to be led by nature, this year we’ve really pushed the envelope with technology and performance. I’m proud of the relentless evolution and incremental improvements we’re seeing across the range. And I’m also excited to see how our team rider feedback loop has become such an integral part of the design process.”

The 2022 Big Air collection is in store and available to demo at your local North Kiteboarding retailer now.

Stay tuned for our Surf and Strapless Freestyle launch in October 2021, then Freeride, Freestyle and Foil in March 2022.
