The Free Race is a 5’3″ twin-fin directional that bridges the gap between race and free ride. It will get you up and going in lighter wind than a surfboard without the typical constraints of a full-on race board. The super flat rocker, wide blocky tail and optimized swept-back twin-fins get you flying upwind in a light breeze, while a slightly rounder outline and surf-influenced rail shape keep things loose and free through the chop. A smooth, comfy ride in any conditions, the Free Race still allows you to put it on rail to tear up small waves or do full speed flat water carves.
Kite-course racing is rapidly gaining momentum and the demand for competitive light wind boards is now greater than ever. In the ongoing development to push the light wind boundaries and upwind performance to the absolute max, North’s third generation Race Ltd. is once again leading the charge. The 2011 Race Ltd. features a shorter, wider design with more volume that will carry you through the lightest wind lulls. An optimized rocker makes the Race Ltd. incredibly smooth and controllable through the chop and you will never have to worry about stuffing the nose when you’re flying down wind towards the finish line. The extremely domed deck allows you to maintain lateral pressure for optimal board trimming to maximize your upwind angle. The 2011 Race Ltd. also features CNC-cut G-10 quad fins and a superlight construction that is massively performance enhancing. So if you’re looking to get out in the lightest possible breeze or blazing around the race course, the Race Ltd. is the absolute performance leader.
