Drift is really good. I have a 7m Carve for foiling and wave riding in smaller waves. I use it with the foil starting at 13/14 knots. I like the comfort of the Carve. Thats really nice. From 8-13/14 knots I use my Naish Boxer. In stronger winds it jumps really nice too. Tried it two weeks ago in 30 knots with my twin tip.

Yeah, we've been chatting with the UK distributor's and this should be quite an important kite for North.

North Reach....a real do all kite.

Orbit for going big
Carve for surf
Pulse for freestyle

Reach - a bit of everything

Reach ?? Very bad name for kite. As also Curved. Both names are like misunderstanding. Seems that North don't have fantasy for names for sure.

It's CARVE ....not Curved?
....As in carve on a wave, pretty good name for a surf kite to me at least.

I think the name Reach is Reach as many people as possible, all styles of riding etc

Bashing is the easiest way ;)
For me the names are good too.
Orbit is clear
Carve is clear
Pulse is nice too... looping hard, unhook, push the limits, Adrenaline

Here’s a review of the Orbit I stumbled upon online, is it that bad ?

That’s no test, just bashing ;)
The overall tests are impressive
