The North Dice has been rocking our world for a few good seasons now, and intermediate/advanced kiteboarders have been loving it.
Categorized as a "freestyle/wave" kite, the 2018 North Dice will give you aggressive jumps, forgiving loops, precise steering, and solid unhooked performance. While also allowing you to switch-up, grab a surfboard and lay into some waves.
If you're a wakestyler or wave rider, you will no doubt love the 2018 North Dice as much as I have! I should also add that I've been sizing-up to account for a little less power on the low-end. For example—if you want the power of a 12m—go with a 13m, and so on.
What North has to say about the 2018 Dice
A Kite so versatile and with so many characteristics, it will please the advanced freestylers as well as the ambitious wave rider! If you love freestyle, but also like to play in the waves from time to time, the DICE is the kite you need in your quiver. For 2018 there have been some major updates; the goal was to create a modern kite with a slight delta shape to make it a progressive freestyle kite for advanced riders. An extra panel was added between the centre and quarter strut; this increases the radius profile of the kite. Also, the leading edge diameters were completely reworked to increase the structural stiffness in the wingtip area. These changes have improved the dynamic handling that the DICE has always been famous for and impresses even the most progressive freestyle rider. The steering is now even more responsive, allowing you to boost bigger jumps and control your loops with ease. Pop created by the kite is explosive, and there is a good amount of slack for unhooked tricks too. The DICE is the only kite to combine outstanding pop and release for freestyle with dynamic handling for waves, pleasing the kite crack who wants it all.
