Bn1 is powered by nothing but the best brands. Check out the kit we use supplied by Ozone and North Kiteboarding.
OZONE POWER KITES
Ozone Imp Trainer Power Kite
Designed to bring out the kitesurfer within everyone, the Ozone Imp Trainer is responsive, smooth and stable with just enough power to ensure you will be ready to progress to the next level. Our unique 3 line set up with Safety Leash guarantees safe, easy recovery and pack away. We recommend the 2.5 m for the best balance of performance and power – go smaller in high wind locations and bigger in light wind areas.
Ozone Imp Quattro
Complete freedom and independence for the novice who wants to progress quickly into land based power kite sports. Consider developing your skills with a 1 m or 1.5 m, or just go for it and make those first runs on a board or in a buggy with the power of the 2.5 m or 3.5 m. To take a break, simply let go and the kite is brought back to the ground by the Kite Killers. Rest up and then relaunch for more fast fun.
Ozone Access XT
The Access XT is super stable for 4 line depowerable power kite for learners and unhooked freestylers alike. The XT has been redesigned from the ground up. Great turn, constant power / depower both encompassed within the bar. This is BN1’s kite of choice for marrying four line power kite skills to your first steps onto a four line inflatable kite which you will eventually use on the water.
North Buzz 2012/13
Finally, the waiting is over. After two years of R&D, North Kiteboarding introduces a new school kite – the BUZZ. The Buzz meets all the requirements of beginners. Briskly pulling the bar does not immediately result in a jump over the dunes. When the kite lands on the water or on the ground, relaunch requires no active intervention from the rider. Instead, its auto-relaunch makes it crawl to the edge of the wind window where it waits for a launching impulse from the pilot. Large Dacron surfaces, Kevlar reinforcements and a new strut construction protect the kite in the rough environment of kite schools. The Buzz has a very wide wind range and is able to water relaunch at only a few Beaufort. The simple four-line bar also contributes to making the introduction to kiteboarding safe and easy as never before.
North Evo 2012
The Evo is quiet possibly the most versatile kite in the North range; a crossover kite that performs as well in the surf as it does for unhooking and throwing the latest new-school tricks. Smooth, predictable power delivery and steady C-like bar feel invite you to unhook and push your new-school moves to the next level, throw massive kite loops or boost big airs. The Evo also offers excellent depower ability and quick, predictable turning and drift ideal for the more surf-minded kiters. Whatever the day brings, you will always be prepared to take advantage of the conditions. Whether you´re into stomping freestyle tricks, shredding waves, jumping, cruising or all of the above, the Evo´s got you covered! Check BN1 TV.
North Kite Bars
North Trust Bar – Quad Control(4line)
The new Quad control bar of course also comes equipped with the Iron Heart. The front line safety system works similar to a 5th Element, allowing the kite to fall to the water and lay de-powered on it’s back in perfect re-launch position. Although reliable in most situations, it does not offer the same level of safety of the 5th Element system.
North Trust bar 5th Element
The NKB Trust bar 5th Element is the most progressive and effective tool to steer your kite and comes equipped with the most functional safety system in kiting, the IRON HEART IV. The Iron heart IV fulfills the challenging French safety norm and offers the best possible safety even in the most extreme conditions. The release forces are remarkably low, providing the highest level of safety in emergency situations. For 2012, the entire bar has been completely re-designed, without losing proven features like the roto-head, the sliding stopper with stopper ball and adjustable winding posts. The small and lightweight vario cleat helps to adjust the Trust Bar in any situation quickly and easily. The new upgraded ergonomic bar grip improves comfort and all features of the 2012 Trust Bar are redefined with an aim on the highest functionality and easiest handling, even in challenging circumstances.

North Gonzales 2012/13
FREERIDE PLEASURE – The Gonzales is a forgiving free-ride twin tip that is perfect for jumping, cruising and advancing your freestyle tricks to the next level. Early planing and great upwind performance lets you focus less on trying to stay upwind and more on riding, progressing and having fun! Smooth through the chop and easy to carve, the Gonzales also features a durable construction to withstand all the abuse you can throw at it!
North x-Ride 2012/13
The X-Ride is an all terrain twin tip that blazes through the roughest chop with ease and comfort. The round template and curvy scoop line are responsible for the X-Ride’s unique blend of comfort and smoothness while also promoting its superior carving abilities. The X-Ride is a blast to shred with in the waves and a perfect transition board to get you out there exploring the surf. The slightly larger swept back fins are not only great to drive you through high speed carves, but also for loading up hard and boosting massive airs at will.
NEVER GROW UP! – Carve up small waves, get out in light wind or challenge yourself with some strapless airs. Whatever your style, the Skimfish is the perfect little toy to keep in your board bag for those days when you need a little something extra to get you stoked and out there! Now built in a classic, durable skimboard construction with comfy grab rails, the Skimfish also offers the option of four fins and a foot strap inserts.
North Wam 2011
A high performance all-rounder – the WAM is suited to nearly all conditions from small onshore mush to powerful beach and reef breaks. The WAMs ability to adapt to nearly all conditions makes it the perfect travel board or the perfect one-board-quiver. Super smooth and lively under your feet, the slightly fuller outline, semi-boxy rails and pulled in thumb tail carry lots of speed when the waves are small yet still provide hold and drive when you need it most in bigger surf. The tri/quad fin configuration gives you the option of riding the WAM in quad fin mode for a more skatey and snappy feeling ideal for smaller waves or in thruster mode for more drive and more positive back foot drive in bigger surf.
North Nugget (new edition to the family)
Get ready to experience the Nugget, a board that will enable you to get out there and tear apart waves in the lightest wind when all your friends are still sitting on the beach. This radically different approach to a conventional surfboard features an ultra wide round-tail, super low rocker and a unique bottom shape aimed at maximum glide, tight turns and upwind performance in light wind and small to medium surf. Full, boxy rails and an ultra flat deck maximize the volume of the Nugget and the quad fin configuration gives you maximum lift to keep you planing through lulls and flat sections on the wave. Don’t let the looks deceive you. This board absolutely rips strapped or strapless. If you are serious about maximizing your time on the water and want a board that truly performs when others will not, you NEED a Nugget. A great compliment to everyone’s quiver, once you get a taste of the Nugget, it is sure to become a regular fixture in yours! At 5’0” the Nugget is also a great option for minimizing excess baggage costs.
