FREERIDE

Instantly familiar, intuitive and comfortable in all conditions, the Prime allows you to progress faster. A sweet performer in all wind and water conditions, it tracks upwind smoothly, slicing splash-free through the chop. Jump and boost in full control, with forgiving landings thanks to the softer flex. Ride in tune with nature, in tune with yourself.

 Tech Specs

  • Wood core composite construction with durable ABS rail.

  • Flatter rocker in between your feet helps this board glide upwind.
  • Bright colored bottom helps you easily see the board when it flips over in the water.

 What We Like

  • The Prime comes in a great size range. There is a board for all sized riders.
  • Even advanced kiteboarders said that they loved the ride quality of the Prime. It is just so easy. Edges well. Rolls into turns easily. Rockets upwind. It even busts through chop with out putting spray in your eyes.
  • The single concave and narrower tips make it have a controlled and positive feel under your feet.
  • We found that you get great edge control and this really helps with hooking up for jumps. North’s attention to detail to put bigger fins with the two bigger boards shows they are really making each size with a specific rider and ride quality in mind.
  • This board is lightweight but does not chatter through chop.
  • The bright bottom is so easy to see when you lose the board in the water.
  • All the screws on the Prime are the same screws. Foot straps, fins, and handle all use M6 x 16mm screws. That makes it really easy to put your board together. If you lose a screw you can rob one from the handle to make sure your fin or foot strap is secure.

  • The handle is really grippy. This is excellent when body dragging out while holding the board handle.

 What We Don't Like

    • The Prime has a softer flex so if you are trying tricks with hard landings you can lose control and wipe out.

Why you want the North Kiteboarding Prime

The Prime is a great all around freeride board. You can’t really say anything wrong about this board as it is perfect for what it was designed for and performs way better than what you expect.

2020 NORTH FLEX STRAP KIT

Features

  • Gripflex Material

    There are two touchpoints in kiteboarding, your control bar and your feet on the board. We wanted those touch points to be as soft as possible, with just the right amount of grip. Until now to get that grip you’ve also had to use quite a hard material, but we’ve developed a super-comfy rubberized EVA to give soft cushioning while maintaining grip underfoot. When it’s wet the grip improves.
  • Knitflex comfort and support

    The actual strap is laminated to the soft conforming foam inner, so when it creates a 3D curve you won’t have any bunching or creasing, and there’s no inner stitching to rub on your foot.
  • Triple Density

    If you use an industry standard soft foam material underfoot, when you land hard it’s going to bottom out and bruise your heel. Instead, we’ve used a triple density foam built up in three layers: soft touch under your feet with a medium density frame to take most of the load, then for serious impact we’ve added a high-density layer which is over-molded together with the medium density
  • Sustainable

    We’ve stripped them back to what you need. Other brands offer changeable heel inserts, but these often end up as waste or landfill. We’ve included just one dual molded heel impact pad on the bottom side, optimized to absorb serious impact. All twin-tips feature retailer-friendly standardized M6 x 16mm Hardware = one tool. To upgrade you don’t need new hardware.
  • Split inner velcro straps

    Ensure a custom fit on top of foot for all shapes, sizes and rider styles.
  • Footpad canted inwards

    To encourage optimized weight distribution and knee alignment.
  • Flex adjusters

    Rear eyelets have an outward kick to ensure your foot never comes in contact with them on hard landings.
  • Optimized strap adjustment options

    Ensure correct fit for all sizes, with comfortable foot positioning for a secure feel and use of toe bar.
  • Top loading foot strap

    Allows for a super quick setup.
  • Forward sloping grip pattern

    Prevents foot slipping out during high rotation tricks.
  • Ramped toe bar

    Lock in your connection to the board.
  • 6” screw spacing

    6.0" to 6.5” insert spacing to fit most twin tips on the market.
  • Two Sizes
