PostSubject: 2010 North Select Used Once    Wed Oct 13, 2010 6:18 am

When the designers at North wanted to see how well they could make a kiteboard this is what they ended up with. No expense has been spared on materials hence the pricetag!

Comes without pads, straps or fins. Only used once when my original board went back to North for inspection. It has very, very minor marks on the heelside edge which I'm not even sure I can photograph due to the tiny size. This board is extremely lightweight which makes it ideal for traveling. When riding this board you really understand why it retails at £750 this year. The ride is amazingly comfortable and very gentle on the knees whilst still being able to hold massive amounts of power whilst you load up the edge resulting in explosive pop. It's a fantastic freeride board, excellent for unhooked freestyle moves and holds it's own in the waves (for a TT). You will not end up with a face full of spray with this board.

The only reason I'm selling it is because my original board which I smashed on the rocks just wont break no matter how much abuse I've given it (due to the ridiculously strong weave of the carbon fibre) so I don't really need this spare.

The 2011 retails at £750. From what I understand this is the same as the 2010 but with different graphics and ever so slightly different fins.

Inspection welcome and you can demo my current board when I get back from Egypt a week on Sunday.

£375 and it's yours.

Thanks Jules

I doubt from your post that you have tried it. Like the Fone Trax (one of the best boards ever made) it is a full carbon board and carries a price to match, it is the top end board using the best materials available. Look at the difference between an aluminum framed bike and one made of carbon in terms of price, the material is everything.

Boardworx have boards from 10 different manufactures. Mark the owner rides a North Select.

I think the board speaks for itself and I welcome any demo on my current one.

Thanks

Hence why the Blankforce Advisory & Ballistic's are so popular, both Full Carbom but a realistic price tag Wink

I do like the Blankforce boards, very nice indeed.

The Select is a little different and admittedly the price tag will put some people off and that's why I'm hoping this one to go reasonably quickly as it's a steal at £375!!
