At last - a dynamite board for lighter, smaller riders!
New in 2021, the North Astra is freeride, big air board for small bodies. Powerful yet playful, it is a bold all-terrain addition to our new-school freeride quiver. North knew that lighter weight riders often find it more of a challenge to control large, stiff boards designed for heavyweights. So, they 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.
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.
