“This kite does just everything, from super strong winds in Cape Town to chilled light winds in the Caribbean. It feels smooth, powerful, and has more lift than any kite I’ve ever ridden.” – Graham Howes

 

North Orbit Kite – Available To Demo

We’ve had the North Orbit kite available to demo for a few months now and have got out in various conditions. We don’t think there is an easier kite to go big with. We’ve recorded jumps over 18m on a 7m in 25 knots, how does that happen?! It just has so much lift!

It is powerful size for size, the 7m is more comparable to most 8m so you can expect them to be 1m bigger than the suggested size, if comparing to other kites.

It’s very confidence inspiring for loops as it doesn’t tear you to pieces through the loop, it’s really smooth and always catches you, even if you’re just a few metres up.

The North Orbit Kite is very fast in the turn for a flat kite, it doesn’t compare to the Cabrinha Switchblade that it’s often referenced to as it’s so much better on every level, especially the build quality and canopy material.

Come down and give it a demo, you won’t be disappointed, it blew us away!

 

FREERIDE / BIG AIR

Big jumps, Big hang time, Big wind range! Designed from the ground up, this kite will rocket you upwind fast, with anti-gravity boosting capabilities.

Wide flat 2-stage arc supported by a reinforced exo-skeleton frame for precision boosting capabilities. The Orbit boosts and loops with ease and is guaranteed to take your breath away. The flattened 2-stage arc design enables a smooth curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power, with straighter wing tips for a more dynamic steering response. The Orbit makes the most use of its area, therefor it has the best hangtime and best power delivery for its size.

Optimised for all conditions, the North Orbit is a predictable kite that can be flown in the unpredictable. Light bar pressure allows effortless and precise steering with a massive sweet spot. A stiff frame provides a stable platform to help with overpowered airs and megaloops in gusty conditions. Tested by nature and proven by our athletes.

KITE FEATURES

  • Phenomenal loft and hangtime
  • Powerful 5-strut performance
  • Incredible upwind performance

“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.

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.

All the bladder valves have been changed throughout both kites

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.

  • No Bridles

  • Moderate Aspect Ratio
  • Waveriding / Power Move kite

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal 2020

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal

We can put together any custom kitesurf package deal with the latest & greatest kit or if you’re trying to keep within a budget, we often have equipment from the previous year(s) which can save a fortune.

We always make sure we offer the most competition prices available on any brand of equipment.

We, along with our experienced coaches, will be sure to suggest the most suitable equipment for YOU, rather than what’s in stock and needs selling. Not every kite or board is suitable for each individual, it’s a very personal sport, everyone is different and it’s expensive to make changes in 2 months time because it doesn’t work for you or doesn’t fit properly.

It’s always our suggestion to come in store so you are able to try items on and see them in the flesh, but we realise for some people this isn’t realistic which is why we offer a next day delivery service on most our products and a free returns / exchange policy.

We know kitesurfing can be expensive, which is why we also offer finance over a 12 month period to break down the outlay. The good news is that once you have your custom kitesurf package, there’s very little else to purchase and the sport is very cheap.

If you’ve found a quote elsewhere, we’ll beat it! contact us for full details.

Wide, square outline and flat rocker make it extremely efficient and fantastic for riding upwind and getting out riding on the days when everyone else is stuck on the beach. Also an ideal first board thanks to these characteristics as it planes a low speed, is easy to get up and going and keeps gliding along the surface.

The lightest, most dynamic and highest performance light wind freeride board is sure to excite you. The straight outline will have you ripping upwind while the flat rocker and medium to stiff flex gets the board going as soon as your kite will stay in the sky. The Mono Concave bottom offers excellent grip too while the best materials in the industry combine to create a genuinely compelling ride.

Tech & Features

Absorption Flex Tip

Based on a unique new construction of the board in the tip area, the scoop rocker line ensures better response to changing situations. In underpowered riding, the board remains flat for fast planing. In overpowered riding, the scoop bends and provides for an increased level of control and stability. The flex tips absorb shocks and enable soft landings.

Hard Flex

North Hard Flex option features the most aggressive flex + pop in our range. Boards with North Hard Flex have more dynamic power development when jumping, more stiffness for better control on ultra-hard landings and a unique pop to always be one step ahead of your competitors!

Torsion Flex

The special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance.

Mono Concave Bottom

Early planing, comfortable, and smooth on one side but scary fast and dynamic on the other side are key features of the boards with our Mono Concave construction! Try it; you’ll love it!

The Track System

“The Track” is the new mounting system of our twintips. Two sliders made out of reinforced plastic are laminated into the boards during the production process. The Track pushes the way of mounting your footpads and bindings into a new dimension. Unveil the various possibilities to customize your footpads for an individual fit. Check out our brand new NTT footpads for more details!

Textreme Carbon

Using one of the advanced fabrics in composite constructions: Textreme Carbon Since the material proved its futuristic performance in the Select, we decided to splash it on the new Spike, too! Having the perfect mix of lightweight, durability, flex and excellent rebound abilities, Textreme is the secret ingredient to our high performance kiteboards!
