Rock solid Wakestyle Board made by North Kiteboarding
North launched the second version of its wakestyle board – the North Flare 2021. Used and abused by shredders like Tom Bridge, this board can withstand anything you throw at it. Anyone will directly notify the missing inserts for a handle, the inserts for boots, the wakestyle rocker and the grind base. There is no doubt, what the North Flare 2021 is made for: unhooked freestyle action or riding obstacles in your (wake)park. Check out what North Kiteboarding team rider Tom Bridge has to say: “To me, Freestyle is anything, it’s everything - an expression of yourself. I’m not going by any rules. I ride the Flare."
For the 2nd generation of the Flare kiteboard, North is finetuned small details and gave the board a fresh look. Like the first edition, the North Flare 2021 is an absolute wakestyle board. The high wakestyle rocker on the Flare 2021 does a great job in breaking up that water surface and create soft landings, when coming in hot. Even though, it’s a dedicated wakestyle board, you feel that you can ride upwind easier than with the North Flare 2021 than with other comparable boards. That is due to the quad concave that leads into quad channels. This bottom shape of the North Flare 2021 provides you with a good amount of grip.
The North Flare 2021 has so called pressflex tips. These tips are a bit softer, so they absorb the chop when coming in for the landing. On an obstacle like a slider box, you can feel that the board locks into place and allow you to hold that press while sliding down the whole box.
Speaking of slider boxes… the North Flare 2021 has a P-Tex grind base. This grind base lets you hit any obstacle, whether it be rocks, kickers, sandbanks or jetties without any worries. Turn anything into your playground and ride hard.
The Flare 2021 has a paulownia wood core with layers of e-glass laminate around it. This ensures a balanced flex to stiffness ratio across the hold board.
