2020 North Comp Surfboard
STRAPLESS FREESTYLE SURF
5'0, 5'2, 5'4
What North has to say about the new Comp:
Progressing strapless movement is at the heart of this dedicated freestyle performer's DNA.
A fast and responsive ride that blends the line between surf-style carving and skate-style strapless riding, the Comp is designed to stick with you through maneuvers and to pop on demand.
Compact in size and very grab-able, the Comp has outstanding speed and edge control in a range of conditions, with a unique three-stage wakestyle rocker that combines speed with aggressive pop, and adds forgiveness for easy tail first or off-axis landings.
The contoured double concave deck with toe bump and rear wedge kick maximizes traction and control when powered up, allowing you to take to the air without straps. Push your limits with the Comp, your competitive edge.
DUALSHOCK EVA INSERTS - under main impact areas reduce denting around heel areas. Our solution to reduce over-engineering impact areas keeping the boards lightweight and retaining the required flex. No-slip textured full EVA deck grip
WOVEN CARBON TAIL REINFORCEMENT - spreads the load under the kickpad and gives impact resistance and torsional stiffness through the tail under the rear foot. Woven carbon tail reinforcement
FCSII FIN BOXES - compatible with FCSI and FCSII fins. Easily change your fins and tune your ride.
HIGH DENSITY FOAM REINFORCEMENTS surrounding the FCSII finbox are shaped to match the curved template of the finbox for a clean bond and smoother load transition into the board.
STRUCTURALLY INTEGRATED high-density foam finbox and footstrap inserts lock into the laminate with the Futurelite carbon innegra system to give extra reinforcement and flex-tuning.
NO-SLIP TEXTURED EVA FULL DECK GRIP with front toe bump and rear wedge kick for maximum traction and control
Introducing the revolutionary Futurelite system and a lighter laminate construction. Board designer Jaimie Scott has helped the North Design team to engineer durable kite-specific surfboards with responsive flex characteristics and the feel of a high performance surfboard
"The Futurelite carbon innegra wireframe creates a T-section, ensuring the board is strong enough to kitesurf, without losing the flex and feel. The resonance created by the wireframe within the board's super-light shell gives a crisp feeling, with fantastic response." JAIMIE SCOTT
The unidirectional carbon fiber and Innegra reinforcement is inserted into channels along the load bearing lines through the deck and bottom of the board, running under and attaching to the FCSII fin plugs on the bottom and around the footstrap inserts on the deck effectively locking all fittings into the laminates and high density foam inserts.
