More precise foot positioning enables smaller riders to remain in control across every manoeuvre and landing. The Astra has a 20mm narrower stance in all sizes compared to the Atmos.
Hybrid basalt construction
North orientated the e-glass and unidirectional basalt tapes in the laminate layup to optimize the loading of the individual fibers, resulting in a unique construction method with superior performance.
Made from natural molten volcanic rocks, basalt fibre provides a lightweight structural reinforcement that is stronger and more responsive than e-glass. The basalt UD tapes contribute to a board’s lively feel and lower weight, delivering more pop without adding an unnecessary amount of stiffness.
Medium-high outline curve
Smooth carving through turns and optimized grip. The pulled-in tip shape adds durability.
Early planing and great low-end performance, with greater control when overpowered.
Single concave center to quad channel tips
Absorbs impact and ensures stable and predictable landings.
Lightweight, impact resistant eco core
At the heart of this board is a light and strong Paulownia wood 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.
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. North adjusted 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.
Durable ABS rail
For long-lasting, impact-resistant performance.
Stainless M6 standardized hardware
Standardised 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.
Integrated grab handle
Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.
Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material with ultimate grip when wet.
40mm fins included
Strong, abrasion resistant composite fins with dogbone washers and M6x16mm standardized screws.
For 2024, all of the North TwinTip boards feature North's new FlipTech Mounting System, with the centerline inserts. This means if you wear out one side of your board, simply flip the bindings around and you've got a shiny new heel-side rail again.
North recommends pairing your Astra with the new Flex or Flex Pro bindings, which provide soft cushioning with just the right amount of grip underfoot. The new anatomically-shaped heel cup supports and stabilizes the foot upon landing, giving your heel the correct orthopaedic position and preventing slipping.Pure-comfort seamless KnitFlex inners and triple-density footbeds are combined with customised size and stance adjustments for a locked-in feel. Sold separately in sizes S, M, L and XL.
