North Carve Kite 2020
Powerful, reactive and controllable, the 2020 North Carve provides instant drift with the flick of your wrist, allowing you to power on and off instantly, stay in the pocket for longer and out of the critical impact zone.
WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE
SIZES: 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13
Featuring a sensory pivot turn for control, and huge depower range, the North Carve gives you the confidence to focus on surfing, in onshore to offshore, and anything in between, while strong surf-freestyle characteristics let you throw down strapless freestyle and perform lofty jumps with ease.
Compared to the rest of our North range, the 2020 North Carve sits further back in the wind window and enhances down the line drift, perfect for carving and tucking into a barrel.

Large leading edge diameter
For rigid, stable kite frame which requires less inflation pressure, allowing you to ride a size smaller.
Evolved slack line drift
For a statically balanced, stable kite that resists nose diving.
Surf tough construction
with dacron reinforcing on the canopy down the full length of the struts and exo-skeleton.
Instant depower on/off
short travel provides instant drift.
Direct pivot steering
Responsive two-stage arc for tighter turns without excessive amounts of power.
Medium aspect swept design
Allows more area in the center of the kite for efficiency and easy roll to relaunch.
LOW DRAG Spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines with less parasitic drag for greater aerodynamic performance. Our new manufacturing method to pre-load and measure the bridle lines before cutting improves accuracy and consistency. This combined with quality materials, results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity.
HYPERFLOW INFLATION SYSTEM
High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.
TECHNO FORCE | D2 RIPSTOP FABRIC BY TEIJIN
Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and high endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.
DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION
Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath and forms a lightweight durable buffer to lift the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protect the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.
STEERING IMPULSE OPTION
Bar pressure / steering impulse wing tip tuning options let you fine tune the kite to your personal preference.
KEVLAR REINFORCED STRUT SYSTEM
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge.
NO-PULLEY BRIDLES Simplified.
Less breakage. Removing the plastic pulleys from within the load-bearing part of the kite improves safety and your connection to the kite. The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling as the kite powers more evenly through the turn.
