North Astra 2023
Playful yet powerful, the Astra is a bold all-terrain addition to our freeride quiver, delivering out-of-this-world performance to lighter riders.
Often lighter-weight riders find it harder to control large, stiff boards designed for heavyweights. With this in mind, we set out to create a board with more responsive flex for riders with a smaller build – one that would deliver increased control in a range of conditions, greater comfort and softer landings, without sacrificing performance. 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. Sending it was never this easy.
