If you love freeride and you love wave also, you probably are looking for a board which will offer you top efficiency for both styles. Well, now you have to look no more, because the 2011 Skimfish from North is here. The North team has made sure that the board packs plenty of power for high jumps and lifts, and reaches top speed in no time, and offers extra performance for both freeride and wave riding. At the same time, the board is very user friendly and quite forgiving and can be used by beginners and expert riders alike. A new technology and a new design make this board perfect for any type of wind and wave and guarantee a fun and nice session out on the waves.

With the 2011 board lineup North will definitely make a huge impact in the world of kiteboarding. Their team has used the latest technology and the highest quality materials when it has developed the new board models to make sure they offer flawless performance. The new Skimfish is such a board, and it went through a long process of research and development before hitting the market.

North Team wanted to make sure that it has all it takes to offer uncompromised freeride and wave riding efficiency. The innovative design, featuring a rounded, wider tip and a fishtail allows the Skimfish to take maximum advantage of the waves and optimize the water flow to offer extra power release and a very smooth glide. The rider can tackle any wave easy and without any effort. The board provides plenty of pop for jumping, early planning, jibbing and carving.  At the same time, North has significantly improved the upwind acceleration and light wind abilities of the board. Actually, the North Skimfish will get you running pretty fast when the wind barely blows, and all the other riders sit on the beach and wait for the wind to pick up. This is possible due to the wider shape and extra volume it packs. The board is also very maneuverable and performs great in flat waters or in higher waves. It is very responsive and precise and offers very smooth landings. Any rider, regardless of skill level can perform any trick or ride as fast as he wishes, while the board is reliable, has a direct control and remains very stable. If you are looking for an all round freeride and wave riding machine, the North Skimfish is perfect for you.

North has built the Skimfish of a very solid, yet light structure. The board is wrapped in a protection foil which makes it immune to shocks and abrasions, it features sidewall ABS protection for a bomb proof construction and the Hard Flex technology used by North increases overall durability. The North Skimfish is available only in 137 x 50 centimeters size and performs best with especially designed North Skimfish fins.
