The Florida surf season is off to a great start thanks in part to the current El Nino weather pattern in effect.
Some shots from this past Sunday in Delray Beach at North 2. Got to love the winter cold front swells that light up Florida beaches with clean fun swell! More to come so stay tuned!
Ryan from North 2 Board Sports with some quick installation tips on the FCS SUP DECK GRIP for your Stand Up Paddleboard. FCS Pads are used on all North 2 Boards Made in the USA "Gulfstream" boards for 2015.
Just wanted to take the time and express how cool it was to be able to work with AerialMOB, drone photography specialists headquartered in San Diego, CA. We worked on a quick N2 promo video this past week in Encinitas, CA, home of the N2 west coast nucleus.
AerialMOB are super pros and when it comes to specialized professional drone work, these guys basically wrote the manual. We had bright sunny, super clean, and small surf conditions out off Beacons surf break the day of the shoot which turned out ideal for some great high vantage shots. We look forward to working with AerialMOB again soon! Big thanks to Treggon Owens, CEO- AerialMOB.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! We are stoked to bring in 2016 here at N2. With a bunch of new board designs and improvements, including the newly designed ultra deep ergo ledge handles on all boards making carrying your durable and lightweight N2 boards even easier! Here is a sampling of some new product coming soon. Stay tuned!
-Team North 2
All of us here at North 2 Boards would like to wish all our amazing retailer partners, friends and family, and suppliers Happy Holidays. We look forward to a new year filled with many more happy customers with big smiles on their faces!
Cheers to the water life and may peace and happiness be with all this holiday season. Big things to come from N2 in the coming year with current product improvements, and additions to our product lineup. We are truly grateful to all who have helped our great brand become what it is today, may God bless.
Good start to the Florida waves season as Hurricane Joaquin brought some fun juice to South Florida and the rest of the east coast of Florida this past week.
Made for some fun conditions along our area beaches but it also brought heavy rains and flooding to other parts of the east coast. We send our thoughts and prayers to those areas hit. Stay safe out there and remember to always wear a leash when surfing sizable waves.
North 2 team rider and sales rep for the South Florida Region did very well today at the Triple Crown of the Upper Keys SUP race!
Jen Aquia placed 3rd overall in the female division of the recreation race, and 1st for female (non-displacement board) using a N2 11' Cardiff, and N2 carbon fiber paddle.
Jen was in the front of the pack the entire race, which is super impressive considering most in her class were on full displacement race style SUPs. Way to go Jen! We are excited to have Jen apart of our team.
Also if you are down in the keys make sure you check out Jen's SUP rental/night SUP tour/lessons business Aquaholic Adventures

Congrats to North 2 team rider and brand ambassador Chelsey Loder for taking 1st place (Recreation Woman's 18-45) at the Sunshine SUP Series Race #2 in Pompano Beach today. We are lucky to have her on our team. Very high temps with almost no wind made it tough for all the racers who competed. It is definitely the dog days of summer here in South Florida. Come say hi to Chelsey and the rest of the N2 crew at this upcoming Surf Expo, Orlando (Sept 9-12, Booth #1189).
