North M2 125 (2004)

Naish Floater 140 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:Naish Floater 140 (2006) - Programmed for waves, the Floater carves beautifully from rail to rail. Perhaps a bit more length would keep the front fins from catching quite so much, but this really wasn't a huge pr...

North Converter 136 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:In spite of some inventive fin design, the North Converter seemed a bit lost in the wave test we placed it in. Although it was a very capable twin-tip, it just didn't have enough wave characteristics to keep the ...
