North Reach Kite
Boost. Loop. Foil. Surf. The Reach is a lively and playful all-round performer with unparalleled versatility and wind range for big jumps, upwind performance and effortless relaunch.
Evolved from a calculated fusion of the Orbit, Pulse and Carve, this kite is designed to excel in every condition, from wave-riding to boosts, loops and freestyle tricks. Travel light, enjoy whatever nature has in store, and be ready for any adventure.
Its stable, fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while the lighter 3-strut design with tight turning radius, light impulse and bar pressure helps to deliver fast, responsive steering.
It has a fun, nimble feel and effortless park and ride, is your go-to for wave-riding in lighter wind and the perfect match for our Sonar Foils.
In the larger 13m and 15m sizes the Reach is a powerful lightwind specific kite, specially designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in.
All conditions. All purpose. All ways ready. The Reach Performance Freeride is the one kite you'll always reach for.

The North Reach Kite 2020 is the completely new all round freeride kite from North Kiteboarding.
But more than that it’s the one kite does it all.
Based on the popular 3 strut design for a lightweight yet structurally solid aerodynamic design. The design offers quick (really quick!) responsive steering, even in the lightest of winds. The larger sizes are optimised for light winds/foiling etc
The North Reach Kite is designed to be an all rounder but moderate leading edge & aspect profile mean it excels at big jumps and upwind performance but is equally easy to relaunch from the water.
This will be the kite for the majority, the kite you will want if you do a bit of all styles of riding...it will also be a great kite for those new to the sport offering plenty for everyone.
The deeper profile offer low down grunt in the light stuff and working in parallel with the efficient leading edge design, is as efficient as they come.
The 13, 15 and 17m sizes are powerful light wind specific designs, for those super light wind summer days and also suitable for foiling.
FREERIDE / BIG AIR / WAVE / FREESTYLE / FOIL
The North Reach Kite is the one you will grab if you’re into everything as it’s a calculated fusion of the North Orbit Kite (big air), North Pulse Kite (freestyle) & North Carve Kite (wave). All of which excel in their specific discipline – this versatile kite excels in all them – wakestyle, boosting, kiteloops, wave riding and also kite foiling.
As with the rest of the North Kiteboarding range North have managed to design all their kites without a pulley bridle, so the feedback through the bar is direct and the turning is ultra responsive but also this means one less part to worry about wear and replacements.
We've been huge fans of the all new North range since it's launch late 2019 and have been loving the both the Orbit and Carve kites and can't wait to get our hands on this all new kite.

- The kite feels very intuitive to fly, and I have to say I like the bar allot - very simple, clean and well thought out.
Yesterday's session on the 12m was a brief one after work, first impressions - very light but precise control, fast turning and cruises upwind - so good for our normal on-shore conditions.
Today I missed the best of it, used the 9m, 20-22mph wind, WNW at Saunton, but big pushing tide by the time I made it down. Excellent feel from the 9m, turns are quick and responsive. You can control the turning circle and power throughout the turns with one hand easily. The kite feels very intuitive to fly, and I have to say I like the bar allot - very simple, clean and well thought out.
Hopefully tomorrow some strong wind to test the jumping and hang time. Thanks Marc and Blast Kiteboarding for the excellent service as usual - hopefully, catch a session with you soon. Jamie
