North launches a new inflatable foilboard

Fun starts here. North launches their new inflatable foilboard, the Seek Air…


Forget what you think you know about inflatable foilboards. The all-new Seek Air by North, with Carbon Sandwich Transfer (CST) Base, is the new gen of direct and responsive design.

Setting new expectations for sensitivity and strength, the CST base runs under the entire length of your stance, giving you a direct connection to the foil. North Designers Uli Sommerlatt and Jaimie Scott have engineered the CST base with a slight curve to match the board's rocker for outstanding control and pumpability.

“When combined with the recommended inflation pressure of 15 PSI, there's little difference in overall structure and stiffness between Seek Air and its hybrid carbon sibling. The Seek Air feels like a rigid board,” says Sommerlatt.

The patented North Dropbox fast foil mounting system is integrated into the CST base. DropBox allows you to easily reposition your foil mast for more or less front foot pressure and makes attaching or removing your foil child's play. Simply loosen your screws slightly to shift the mast forward and remove it from the track, leaving the screws and the t-nuts assembled to your foil.

Unparalleled feel.

For all riders.

Redefining the inflatable foilboard, the Seek Air delivers the feel and performance of its hybrid carbon counterpart with all the lightweight convenience, portability, and durability of an inflatable.

Surprisingly light with a low swing weight, the smaller Seek Air have a high-performance feel, while the larger sizes are refined for on-water speed and fast, early take-offs – making them ideal for learning to foil. The larger 5’9/6’2 sizes are supplied with removable side fins, so you can focus on winging, before adding a foil.

Inflatable PVC Drop Stitch Technology

The inflatable PVC drop stitch construction is durable, impact-absorbing and ding resistant, making it ideal for the boat, and a forgiving surface to fall on when you’re learning to wing or foil.

Intuitive Deckpad with V-Strap and Centreline Foot Strap Inserts

The Seek Air features a one-piece EVA deck pad with diamond pattern that gives you great traction under your feet. We've integrated options for V-strap or Centerline foot strap inserts into the deck and included the foil mounting hardware and M6 strap screws with every board.

Integrated Tow-Point

The 5'9 and the 6'2 come with a tow-point at the bottom of the nose. This feature is ideal when learning, as it allows someone to attach a rope and tow you back upwind easily with another wind-powered craft, such as a dinghy or windsurfer.

Purpose-built travel backpack with rollers

The Seek Air travel bag is equipped with pockets where you need them, has big wheels for easy handling and is made from recycled PET fabric.

Super stiff. Inflate to 15PSI – Pump Included

North supplies the Seek Air with a high-pressure two-way inflation pump that lets you quickly pump up your board to 15 PSI. The pump comes with a wing adaptor for fast wing inflation.

Rigid Board Performance

The stiff frame with CST base of the board gives you a significant amount of control over the board. There is no sluggish delay in steering. When inflated to 15PSI, Seek Air feels like a rigid board.

Your ideal board size if you're getting into foiling is 30 to 40 litres above your weight (kg). We recommend 10 to 20 litres above your weight (kg) for more advanced or intermediate riders.
