Re: 2014 North Evo review (in comparimsment to the 2013 Fuse

No was referring to the Evo which is far more prone to over sheeting. Leave the dice on its factory setting...it will fly forward even when pulled all the way in...it's set up to unhook without touching the trim. Hence why I actually shortened the back lines on the dice until I got enough front lin...

Re: Is the North Dice.........

IF you ride waves, as well as freestyle then you want the dice. If you are predominately wakestyle then no doubt Vegas. Sounds like you need to upgrade to the 2014 Vegas! But if you are looking for a deal on the 2013 Vegas... A bit more bar pressure than the 2012 http://www.kiteforum.com/second_hand...

Re: Experience on these raceboards? North 2011, 2012, RR K70

I have the 2012 North Ltd 69 2nd edition. No problems with the fin placements or angles. I didn't really like the inside straps, so I took them off and it rides great from 10mph to 30. Tons of fun once you get used to the awkward leeward edging... I live in TX and would sell it for $1000 if you are ...
