While I have had a couple of new 2014 kites to test for a few weeks today saw all my new North kites arrive in Cornwall. We are pleased to have a full quiver of Dice to use within the school and will have them available to demo at the BKSA Wavemasters in Tiree 16-21st september.
For my thoughts on the differences between the Rebel & Dice check out my blog-

At Pasty Adventures we now have the full range of 2012 North Surfboards available to demo and so far I am super impressed with all the boards now being nice and light.
The Wam is the allround model, suited for strapless as well as strapped riding, the 6’0 is
amazing for riders over 80kg while if you are 70-80 the 5’10 and under 70 the 5’8. I prefer the thrusters set up, but the quad option does give you more drive in onshore conditions.
The Kontact is aimed at big wave riding but it also works really well in onshore (which was a big surprise to me) due to
its narrower shape allowing you to lay down full speed carves without bouncing out. It is also real fast and smooth in choppy water. If you like going fast and carving big cutbacks into the pocket, in chunky onshore conditions then
this is probably the board for you.
The Whip this year comes in 2 sizes and I’ve found it performs best when ridden with straps. The 5’8 has a fair bit of volume and is good for over 80kg riders and the 5’6 under 80kgs, who mostly ride strapped in onshore or cross on waves up to head high, if you ride in bigger stuff, I’d recommend the Wam.
The last 2 boards are the X Surf 5’11 and Nugget 5’0 which I haven’t had time to get on yet but both look really exciting as strapless boards. The X Surf is going to be my board for strapless fun in not ideal waves up to head high while the Nugget is a chop and small wave fun strapless jumping board.
If you want to demo any of the boards I will have them in the van when I’m back or email email@example.com
All the demo boards will also be available to test on our wave clinics and coaching holidays this winter.
