2014 North Spike
The Spike is perfect for those days when you arrive at the beach and wind isn’t quite playing ball. Using a unique shape concept the Spike combines a large surface area, and flat rocker, with an asymmetrical concave and straight centre section. This gives the board unbelievable upwind abilities and gets it up and going in light winds while others are left on the beach. The 163 offers the best upwind and low end performance in the range, it is also very easy to ride. The 153 has slightly less low end, but still gets going very early. Underfoot it feels much smaller than it is, so it is perfect for light wind freestyle and freeride tricks. The smallest board in the range, the 141, is tuned to be more of a light wind freestyle machine, it works really well in gusty conditions and is popular among riders who ride inland on lakes. If you want to make every session count, no matter how light the wind is, you need the Spike in your collection.
