The 2012 Free Race by North is an amazing board. It is constructed using the latest technology and intended to perform outstanding at both freeride and racing disciplines. The Free Race takes the best features from a dedicated racing board and a freeride one and blends them into a unique riding machine. The directional surfboard, slightly rounded outline makes it very fast and assures a smooth glide across the waves.

A blocky tail provides optimal power delivery and assures excellent control. A great thing about the Free Race is that it can get you going pretty fast when all the other riders sit on the beach and wait for the wind to pick up. The North team has made sure that the board has excellent lightwind performance. The flat rocker provides outstanding upwind abilities and top control.

The rider can run at impressive speeds while he is in complete control and the board responds to any command. The board is equipped with a twin fin setup which minimizes drag and provides extra lift when needed. The surfboard-like rails provide a very smooth glide and improve the carving and jibing abilities of the board. The board is great for entry level racing competitions, but also for fast and fun cruises. It is very stable and gives the ride the confidence to push his skills to the maximum.

The North Free Race is built using a Bamboo and Custom Epoxy Wood Sandwich construction. This structure makes the board very durable and light. If you love fast speeds on flat waters, a smooth ride through small waves and chop or wish to have a nice lightwind session, the North Free Race is the perfect board for you.
