North Charge 2023
Developed for surfing. Engineered for kitesurfing. Smooth and powerful down the line, turning hard in the pocket and releasing on-demand, the Charge is a high-performance surfboard. It is a fast, dedicated surf shape with loads of projection for a powerful vertical attack in larger waves.
The Charge also excels at carving, driving upwind, onshore riding, and is versatile enough for aerial tricks. Our Carbon Innegra Futurelite construction maximises the board’s strength, without losing flex or responsiveness, while the DualShock EVA inserts increases its durability and protects from heel dents.
Refined in 2023 for improved response, speed and drive, the new Charge delivers an even smoother, more powerful ride with a positive feel and more radical turns. Feedback from riders charging some of the world’s biggest waves led to us making very slight refinements to the shape to improve the handling at speed and drive through the turns. We’ve moved the wide point of the board slightly forward, and we’ve increased the concave under the front foot.
We’ve also reshaped the rounded surf rails to be lower and more refined, giving the board more grip when you’re carving the wave face. Also new for 2023 is the two-piece no-slip fine corduroy deck grip, with front and rear kicks for exceptional comfort and control.
