Everybody who is kitesurfing for more than 5-6 years should know that the Jaime is the longest running and best selling twin tip model of all times. It has all-round performance and ability to adapt to a huge range of conditions, incredible smooth feel through choppy water and really soft landing. The board produces explosive pop similar to more powerful new school kiteboards. All this is probably mostly due to the fact that Jaime (the man him self) continues to relentlessly strive year after year to refine and improve him model not only for his own personal enjoyment and progression as a rider, but to please all those loyal fans out there.
The North Jaime 2012 features a moderate outline, double V-botton, and a new track system that allows you to adjust your stance to your exact preference.
