What We Like
  • The Prime comes in a great size range. There is a board for all sized riders.
  • Even advanced kiteboarders said that they loved the ride quality of the Prime. It is just so easy. Edges well. Rolls into turns easily. Rockets upwind. It even busts through chop with out putting spray in your eyes.
  • The single concave and narrower tips make it have a controlled and positive feel under your feet.
  • We found that you get great edge control and this really helps with hooking up for jumps. North’s attention to detail to put bigger fins with the two bigger boards shows they are really making each size with a specific rider and ride quality in mind.
  • This board is lightweight but does not chatter through chop.
  • The bright bottom is so easy to see when you lose the board in the water.
  • All the screws on the Prime are the same screws. Foot straps, fins, and handle all use M6 x 16mm screws. That makes it really easy to put your board together. If you lose a screw you can rob one from the handle to make sure your fin or foot strap is secure.

  • The handle is really grippy. This is excellent when body dragging out while holding the board handle.
What We Don't Like
  • The Prime has a softer flex so if you are trying tricks with hard landings you can lose control and wipe out.
  • Why you want the North Kiteboarding Prime

    The Prime is a great all around freeride board. You can’t really say anything wrong about this board as it is perfect for what it was designed for and performs way better than what you expect.
