North Team Series 2011

Postby Yoo » Fri Feb 25, 2011 8:25 am

Hi kiters,
please tell me truthfully, without brand promotion :nono: ,
how the 2011 Team Series works.
I’m 71 kg so I guess 131x40 could be ok for 13-17 kt with 11 mt sail.
Does the board spray in your face?
Very hard flex, so difficult to handle in choppy conditions?
How are the landings?
Thanx in advance

They work fine.
Just get the size you like, and your off.

First of all I find it hard to recommend boards. It seems to be a personal decision...

I personally like the Team Series. I was riding a Naish Thorn before. In direct comparison to the North Jaime Pro I'd say it has a bit more pop and goes less upwind (but still good). The landings appear to be easier than on my old board. Maybe it is partly due to the s-bend fins…

I had the board in chop(mostly), wave and flat water and never felt totally uncomfortable. The only thing is that heel-toeside-trans can feel a bit sketchy. I was not made for waves therefore you don't have a smooth ride on 'em :D

I don't have much problems with spray but this can depend on your riding :wink:

I also demoed Liquid Force boards but I didn’t like ‘em as much. The TS feels more versatile.

If you have the chance try to demo before you buy.

BTW I weigh only slightly more than you and have the 133

Of course it’s a personal decision, but I haven got the chance to demo the board, so that’s why I ask your opinion.. :wink: I'll probably get the 133
Thanx
