North Kontact 2009

Postby dazza5172 » Sat Oct 11, 2008 9:37 am

Hey just unpacked my new North Kontact 5'10" and it looks very interesting, width oly 17" which is thinner than the 08 Rocket fish but at 2" with deeper deck over most of the board, hope there is some wind tomorrow and then I can get a review up. Some photo comparisons and first impressions here

I just ordered a 5'9'' Custom from Amundson because i can't find one from 2008. :jump:
I have been riding a Custom Amundson 6'0'' since january and simple love it. I will add the 5'9 for 30++ knots days with small wind-destroyed waves.

Just come back from Brandon Bay Ireland, where i've tested my Amundson 5'6'' in a big atlantic Swell, and I've had a mystic experience, I love my board and I think Amundson is a genius.
Series Boards like north etc. are also good, but nothing compared to a Amundson custom.
