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.
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.
