2022 North Flare Kiteboard

WAKESTYLE / PARK


Carve up the park. Slice the flats. Hold your rail upwind. The Flare is designed for advanced riders to slide between kite and park with maximum pop, and never catch a rail again. Its high wakestyle rocker helps to soften your impact on landings. PressFlex tips enable smooth, controlled presses. Rotate, slide and spin. The durable low-friction P-tex base won't stick when you hit that kicker or obstacle. It’s Tom Bridge’s freestyle stick of choice and quite possibly the most durable board in the park. For 2022 North placed the strap inserts down the centerline, ensuring you can mount your boots in either direction for rail longevity.

2022 North Flare Technology

NEW Centerline Strap Inserts
Double the lifespan of the durable ABS rails by mounting your boots in the opposite direction. North's new Centerline inserts give you true TwinTip rail longevity. 

 

Low-Friction P-Tex Grind Base
The P-Tex base is low friction for perfect transitions. Rotate, slide, and spin with ease, knowing your board won't stick when you hit that kicker, jump, or obstacle. 

 

High Wakestyle Rocker
Forget whiplash and faceplates - the high rocker line allows you to land gently without catching a rail. The rounded surface breaks the surface tension of the water, softening the impact on hard and flat landings.

 

PressFlex Tip Control
Controlled tip flex for smooth presses and softer landings. 

 

Quad Concave to Deep Quad Channelled Tips
Extreme quad channels improve tracking and upwind while riding finless. 

 

Medium Outline Curve
Rounder outline for carving up the cable park and performance on the flats. The wider middle and forgiving rocker also help with overpowered riding in choppy conditions. 

 

Wide Square Tail
Generates maximum pop for low-level technical freestyle/wakestyle tricks.

 

Composite Technology
The combination of the Paulownia wood core with engineered E-glass laminate layups on the top and bottom drives riding performance. 

 

Dynamic Flex
The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations 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 North to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. They adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.

 

Lightweight, Impact Resistant Eco Core
Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance. 
Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customized core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.

 

Standardized M6 Stainless Hardware
Standardized SS316 M6x16mm hardware across all twin tip boards and accessories enables the use of the same PH3 screwdriver for assembly and makes replacement of parts super easy. 

 

20mm Fins Included
Strong, abrasion resistant composite fins with dogbone washers and M6 screws. 

 

No Handle Inserts

 

Fix Boots Recommended
Featherlite, low-cut boots with easy one-handed entry and exit, shock absorption, direct feel and maximum comfort KnitFlex lining. Customize with colored velcro straps. (Fix Boots sold separately)
