IF YOU COULD ONLY PACK ONE KITE TO TAKE WITH YOU ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE – WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Red Reach Kite

North Kiteboarding have launched the Reach as a performance freeride kite with the objective of creating the kite you would want if you were ever marooned on a desert island.

Picture it now – sun-bleached sand, surf pounding on the outer reef, slicks on the inside and palms rustling in the tradewinds. An uncrowded playground where you’re at one with the elements.

Years of kite adventures and the power of Google’s satellites under their belts, the North team set out to find their ultimate desert island. They landed in the Philippines, primed to answer that timeless debate: ‘If you could only pack one kite to take with you – anywhere and everywhere – what would it be?’

“If you like to foil, ride some waves, jump and loop, this is your kite” says kite designer Pat Goodman who claims it’s the ‘best most versatile kite I have ever created’.

The Reach merges some of the best DNA from each North kite into one design that does everything. It’s not so dedicated to doing one thing that it doesn’t do other things as well. “

“The Reach is for the Rider who craves simplicity and doesn’t want a big quiver. It’s the kite that will work with anything you want to put under your feet. It has no limitations. You hop on it right away and say ‘this thing’s a blast’!”

SIZES:

12, 11, 9, 7 and 5m
