North Kiteboarding Issue 04/2017
We’re kicking off this month’s newsletter with the launch of the much anticipated Juice! A light wind machine, it’s guaranteed to get you out on the water in even the mildest breeze. Check out the latest info clip to see it in action as we walk you through the design and performance updates for 2017. We catch up with designer Ken Winner to hear all about the R&D process for bringing this year’s Juice to life.
Check out the latest Neo episode where the straps are off! Documenting some of the sickest riding to date, we take a look at the evolution of strapless kiteboarding. The GKA is busy fighting against a general ban on kiteboarding in areas where there is a large presence of birds. Finally we’re stoked to share the official North Kiteboarding brand clip with you. Aimed to inspire and motivate, it captures the beauty of the sport and the positive impact North Kiteboarding has had on it.
THE NEW JUICE IS OUT!
Coming in on a light breeze is the new 2017 Juice. A must-have in any quiver we guarantee you’ll be on the water first whilst others watch from the beach. Light in weight and with a shorter bridle, it’s a straight forward kite that does exactly what it say’s on the tin; it lives for the lighter days.
2017 JUICE INFO CLIP
Come with us to the Grenadines and watch Jeremie Tronet shredding the Juice. Not only is the action motivating, but we provide important information on the performance features and design updates for this exciting new model.

Ken Winner has been the creative mind behind the Juice ever since it was conceptualised and brought to market back in 2014. Every year he manages to improve upon the in-flight characteristics of this featherweight, light wind machine. Read what he has to say on the blog.

THE GKA’S BATTLE AGAINST THE BIRD
The GKA is busy fighting against a general ban on kiteboarding in areas where there is a large presence of birds. Obviously we are all huge supporters of nature, but when the facts don't match up it would put an unnecessary stop to riding many of the best sports in the world.
