Surf / Strapless Freestyle
The Carve is a powerful, reactive and controllable kite, ideal for carving up a wave face, tucking into a barrel or boosting strapless tricks. Engineered with a stable, lower aspect ratio design for fast pivot turns and excellent drift, the Carve has an extremely direct feel in both bar pressure and steering initiation. For 2023, we've put the Carve back into its wave riding category. Refined bridling for a longer, more progressive travel means the kite feels smoother and more responsive throughout the full depower range. It is still reactive when you sheet out – to the very end. Improved overall balance also enhances drift, so when you're surfing, it glides down the line, waiting for your bar input. More intuitive control - especially when the kite's not visible on a big bottom turn, cut back, or in a barrel - means you can focus 100% on the surf.
Two-stage arc, direct pivot steering
The Carve's responsive two-stage arc design enables tighter turns without excessive amounts of power. The two-stage arc allows the smooth-curved efficient central region of the kite to produce power, while straighter wing tips provide a more dynamic steering response
The lighter the kite, the faster the steering and the more lift it creates. For 2023 lighter weight bladders have been adopted into all sizes in the range. This additional weight reduction helps the new Carve to fly more efficiently, so the kite feels even lighter and more responsive in all conditions – and particularly in light wind.
Smoother Power Delivery
The Carve has a high-buoyancy leading edge diameter for a rigid, stable kite frame which requires less inflation pressure. The high volume of air in the leading edge ensures the kite stays on top of the white water and is not easily crushed by the waves.
Duralight Seam protection
Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath to form a lightweight durable buffer which lifts the kite slightly off rough surfaces and protects the stitching along the struts and leading-edge seams.
Kevlar reinforced strut system with bridle deflectors
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines catching on the struts.
rapid single-point inflation
The cap and valve base geometry are optimized for more comfortable opening and closing in colder conditions. The bayonet-style main inflation valve is compatible with most pumps with large diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation.
WHAT RIDERS SAY
"The Carve gives me a lot of control when I’m in the air and is perfect for a good wave session."
- Capucine Delannoy
Highest quality low-drag, no-pulley bridle lines
All North bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling. The end result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling.
3x personalised performance tuning options
Bar pressure and steering impulse can be adjusted on the wing tip, allowing you to fine-tune the kite's characteristics to your personal preference. There are three options.
