2020 North Flare Kiteboard
Transition from Kite to Park with style. Designed for advanced kiteboarding Wakestyle and Park riders using bulletproof P-Tex grind base material to be the most durable board in the park. Adjustable stance width allows you to change the Flare's rocker profile from a flatter upwind-optimised rocker to a higher wakestyle rocker by narrowing the stance.
Adjustable stance width gives optimised rocker profile for kite or park.
Controlled tip flex for presses and softer landings.
Quad concave centre to deep quad channel tips
For better tracking and upwind while riding finless.
Durable base layer
Bulletproof contoured P-Tex base layer for a strong grind and park durability.

FLARE COMPOSITION CONSTRUCTION
The combination of the paulownia wood core with engineered e-glass laminate layups on the top and bottom drives riding performance.
PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE
Lightweight and impact-resistant, paulownia is highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratio of any wood in the world. Ultra-lightweight, with high impact resistance, paulownia wood form a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin.
The flex characteristic of every twin-tip board is determined by the multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variation and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine-tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in the conjunction with the rocker line, plane shape view, and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.
