2022 North Prime Features
Progressive single concave with pulled-in flexible tips
Flexible pulled-in tips combine with a progressive single concave with flatter mid-section for faster early planing and slicing splash-free through chop.
Balanced rocker, outline and flex
For smooth, controlled upwind tracking. The Prime's rounded outline is easy to edge, helping you stay in control and progress faster. Its forgiving flex means softer landings and gives you the confidence for jumps and boosts.
Durable ABS rail with smoothed edge
Long-lasting performance rails with user-friendly smoothed edges help protect your skin from accidental scrapes and bruises.
The combination of a Paulownia wood core with engineered E-glass laminate layups on the top and bottom drives riding performance to the next level.
Ride in comfort with precise edge control for carving. The flex characteristics 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. North adjusts 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 customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.
