Re: Different Bar Widths - Explained

Hahaha. Foilholio's 'facts' are awesome. "Then why do they argue against foil kites so much? Your statement is in contradiction of the facts. If they really care about performance they would have foil kites." A. We have a foil kite. It's called the Ace. B. One of our two designers, Ralf Groesel, was...

Re: Different Bar Widths - Explained

A. We have an adjustable width bar, the Trust Bar Quad Control. As far as I'm aware we were the first to market with an adjusatable width bar (at least as far back as 2005). Also, for the record, that 2005 bar is still fully compatible with every 2019 Duotone kite (as well as every NKB kite that cam...

Re: Airush Kiteboarding - By Innovators For Innovators & AWSI Kite Brand of the Year

Hahaha... "fun and inclusive are parties"... What do you think I meant by "AWSI puts on the awards"? We rented the local Elks club, got Kona brewing (thanks everyone at Kona!!!) to donate 6 kegs, and invited everyone in town. Then we got loud and crazy and handed out awards. Duotone also hosted a pa...

Re: Airush Kiteboarding - By Innovators For Innovators & AWSI Kite Brand of the Year

Hahaha. Don't know where Foilholio gets his (alternative) facts, but I can say for certain that Airush is not the biggest "donor" to AWSI. They paid the same dues as any other brand. They just killed it in 2018 and the industry wanted to recognize it. Also, for the record, the AWSI puts on the award...

Re: What does true mean for you?

Haha. This thread has gotten very weird. Boards and More started using the claim "True Kiteboarding" in 2010/2011 Those who claim it's 'marketing bullshit' aren't necessarily wrong, but they're not necessarily right. I actually credit the brand claim "True" as more or less creating the brand you've ...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Sarc- thanks for the support Dice and Wrogu- I'm actually not certain on the logo thing... It was created by a local guy here in the Gorge, but apparently it's somewhat unclear who owns it. NTG is using it right now but I'm not sure they actually have the rights to do so. Looking forward to getting ...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

No problem, and the confusion/speculation is totally understandable... there are a lot of people who don't know what's going on spouting a lot of theories-as-fact (what else are public forums for). As far as how we will deal with the new North it's the same as any other new manufacturer. Personally ...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Tautologies- I think you might misunderstand the situation. Ion and Duotone (and North Kiteboarding) are not companies. They are brands. The company behind Ion and Duotone (and North Kiteboarding for the past 15 years) is Boards and More, of which Till is the CEO, so you can say that he owns both Du...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Was out of town for the weekend, getting caught up. I see 2 real questions: 1. Plans for the foil range: I don't know for sure. Right now we have 3 boards (Free Foil, Pro Foil, Hybrid) and two foils (Speedster and Speedster GT). I haven't heard official word on where the 2019 Duotone line will be he...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Hey guys- Sorry for the silence on this whole topic but we've been really busy ramping up for the launch of the new brand. Now that the gloves are off I'm happy to answer any questions I can. First, I think a lot of people on this forum understand the difference, but just to be clear, I've never wor...
