7 & 10m North Rebel 2011 Package

North Rebel Package – 7 & 10m plus Trust Bar 2011

Included in the package

  • 7m Rebel
  • 10m Rebel
  • North Trust Bar 5 line bar

 

Both these kites are in excellent condition, the 7m looks as though it has been used only a handful of times, it’s crispy without a mark on it.

The 10m is the same but has one tiny cut on the canopy which has been patched. No pin holes or wear to the canopy.

The photos show the condition throughout but let us know if you want to see any more.

Both kite bags have seen better days as the zips have corroded from being near or in salty water, so the straps are used to close and open them instead.

Fantastic and very popular kite with high quality construction. Super stable with easy water relaunch plus excellent jumping performance and hangtime with responsive turning, a kite for any level of riders in all conditions

 

The North Rebel 2011 is the definitive free-ride kite.

Equally at home in the hands of surf junkies or flat water fiends, the Rebel is a kite that simply works in all conditions!

Smooth, predictable power development and reduced sheeting force will give you confidence to push your riding to new levels or simply cruise with comfort and ease.
This would make a good entry package once you’re able to ride comfortably and are looking to start going upwind.

Direct sheeting allows you to instantly turn on the power when you need it for lofty jumps or driving bottom-turns while total depower lets you instantly sheet out to shut off power for vertical off-the-tops!

The Rebel is soft and powerful enough to get you up and going in light winds, yet remains incredibly stable when the wind picks up.

Excellent steering even with the kite depowered makes it easy to keep the kite flying overhead and positioned precisely where you want it as you setup for your next off-the-lip manoeuvre, so it’s no secret why the Rebel is North’s number one choice in the surf.

A slight increase in the leading edge together with the addition of relaunch bungies to the back pigtails prevents line snagging and makes the relaunch of the Rebel easier than ever!

If you’re looking for all-round performance and safety with the simplicity of five lines, look no further . . . The North Rebel will give you all the tools you need!

The Cam Battens give the kite two key advantages: Lower drag at normal angles of attack and better profile stability at low angles of attack! At normal angles of attack, the CamBattens keep the shape smooth and stable along the front part of the canopy. Aerodynamic theory tells us that this is the most important part of the profile for generating power with low drag.

As you let the bar out to de-power, the wind tries to collapse the front part of the canopy and push the kite back. CamBattens resist this by keeping a full, stable shape near the leading edge, allowing the kite to fly at lower angles of attack for more depower.

Combine the CamBattens with Trim Tips, the new tip geometry lets the kite tilt even farther, and de-power to the maximum.

All of this gives the Rebel a very direct feel on the bar, better low end performance due to reduced drag, and a much wider wind range. On the water you will notice that the wind just seems a lot smoother, with less holes and gusts.

This simple yet high performing kite can be used with any 5th line control bar providing the depower line is more than 45cm long.

  • Flat Style Kite
  • Moderate Aspect Ratio
  • Waveriding / Power Move kite

North Kiteboarding Carve 2020

North Kiteboarding Carve 2020

Now with FREE 2 hour private lesson or Tricktionary (the ultimate progression book!) if you’re further afield.

“The North Carve has an incredibly steady and consistent pull, with a super smooth drift so when I’m on a wave all I have to think about is smacking the lip.” – Jesse Richman

We tested the North Carve in Dakhla when they were first released, and the speed that it turns just blew us away. Nothing really compares. This is a really nice feature on a wave kite as the last thing you want is something that is sluggish that you’re waiting for when smacking a lip. The build quality is fantastic and overall feel is great. It flies well with the North Bar as it’s soft on the hand and arms, so you can concentrate on surfing the waves.

It’s worth noting that these kites are quite powerful for their size, especially compared to most wave specific kites which tend to be less powerful size for size than freeride or big air kites.

WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

Powerful, reactive and controllable, the Carve provides instant drift with the flick of your wrist, allowing you to power on and off instantly, stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone. Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control and huge depower range, the Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing, in onshore to offshore, and anything in between, while strong surf-freestyle characteristics let you throw down strapless freestyle and perform lofty jumps with ease. Compared to the rest of our North range, the Carve sits further back in the wind window and enhances down the line drift, perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel. 3 x Kitesurf World Champion Jalou Langeree’s kite of choice.

North Pulse Kite 2020

North Pulse Kite 2020

Now with FREE 2 hour private lesson or Tricktionary (the ultimate progression book!) if you’re further afield.

The North Pulse Kite 2020 was the biggest surprise in the North range for us as it was so much better than expected! It offers the best feedback through the bar from their range and does sit really stably when unhooked giving you time to pass the bar without it disappearing across the wind window.

Yet it’s responsive when you want it to be, we found it was as good if not better at boosting than the North Orbit (with good technique), which is their big air specific kite. The North Pulse comes out of kite loops superbly even up to the 10m size so we expect to see many of these across the beaches in the coming months.

The North Pulse turns around the wing tip so does generate pull through the turn, whereas the North Orbit and North Carve pivot from the centre of the kite which generates a lot less pull. This is instantly noticeable which makes the overall feel to the kite very different from the rest of the North Kites range.

In comparison to other kites in this range (F One Bandit, Cabrinha Chaos, Ozone C4 etc), the North Pulse excels in the freestyle discipline but lacks in wave riding or  light wind / foiling, where some of the others compare more favourably.

 

“The Pulse surprised me with how smoothly it handled, making me feel super safe in strong winds, and really stable. I was blown away by how much hangtime and jumping ability it has for an open C kite. Honestly this kite gave me so much confidence.” Bruna Kajiya

FREESTYLE / WAKESTYLE

Our premier freestyle 3-strut kite will set your heart pumping. Specifically designed for fast, responsive steering, the Pulse is the ultimate in performance freestyle, that will also boost and mega loop with ease. Enhanced impulse slack means landing even the most technical tricks becomes instinctive. Made to excel in strong winds, and overcome whatever Mother Nature can throw at you. Direct and responsive, this kite does exactly what you tell it to.WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

FEATURES

The North Pulse Kite 2020 flies forward quickly when checking a rail edge, for unmatched freestyle progression. This really aids with line slack for unhooking & explosive pop off the water. Great for any freestyle tricks or big airs.

KITE FEATURES

  • Unhooked performance – Bridled Hybrid-C design with balanced line slack for handle passes and unhooking
  • Flex Pulse Structure – Upright design ensures twist from the steering lines runs deeper into the canopy for powerful turns and fast, responsive steering.
  • Dynamic Edge Response – Kite flies forward quickly when checking a rail edge, for unmatched freestyle progression.
  • Flatter 2 stage arc design – The 2 stage arc design enables smooth curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power, with straighter wing tips for more dynamic steering.
