A new board for the 2021 North range, the Astra is optimised for the lighter-weight rider!
Lighter weight riders often find it harder to control large, stiff boards designed for heavyweights. With this in mind, North set out to create a board with more responsive flex for lighter weight or smaller build riders – one that would deliver increased control in a range of conditions, greater comfort and softer landings, without sacrificing performance.
The Astra’s smaller board length, narrower stance and basalt technology construction provides riders of all levels just the right amount of flex for controlled edging, boosts and loops. Its consistent, dependable rail grip gives you extra confidence to push boundaries as you load up for massive jumps.
With its super-efficient bottom shape and rocker, the board feels fast through the water and flies upwind. The medium flex is dense enough to deliver clean and powerful pop, yet soft enough to forgive your knees and legs on harder landings.
We recommend choosing the North Flex Bindings as a great pair for your board.
