Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

but the fact he was banned from his native kite forum Really? that's interesting and the first I heard of it. As to the rest of this nonsense once more trying to 'reel me in' with all manner of deceptive bait, downright lies for the most part. Some facts. I've never been 'bankrupt' or forced by ban...

Re: Core Nexus and Nexus LW

Can anyone compare the Nexus to the GTS4/5? Nexus has a little more drift and a littles less 'spike' in loop surges than a GTS4. So more suitable for all round use with extra wave riding bonus and a little less punishment in freestyle practise. It's going down very well, lots of riders have tried t...

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

I was party to the introduction of kiteboarding to Boards & More under the 'North' name, but I was also very much aware that the logo was constructed to bear absolutely no similarity to the N/S North Sails logo, given that the license fee paid to North and negotiated by Ekhart Wagner back in the 80'...

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

I think if you have lots of money for marketing, you will succeed. Look at Best...back then...Alex Shogren funded it and was smart...they became big. Then those guys with titles entered...and messed up. If Best would still be in the same hands, it would be No 1,2 or 3 of the world. North has a chan...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

so based on that, if rolex changes name tomorrow in xelor, will be the same thing? I have my doubts. despite knowing that the product has not technically changed. Come on... NKb is HISTORY Apples and oranges. Nobody buys a Rolex because it keeps the best time. A quartz movement is more accurate and...

Re: North & Duotone - Your Questions Answered by CEO Till Eberle

Til Eberle ffs the man who didn't want North to engage in kitesurfing in the first place.

This is a catastrophic blunder of epic proportions imv, as usual, corporate ego's clashing and screwing a totally niche market with their bean counters..

Has nobody asked the question?

If it's 'True' kiteboarding now, then was everything before a Lie?

Re: Slingshot RPM 10m 2012 (missing parts)

I may have them, certainly have the pigtails, I'd need to see the yellow labels enlarged on the bridles. I've got lots of wing tip bridles mainly from Rallys, but they are all composites of different lengths, sp lets have a magnified look at the yellow label or check my website to see if they are on...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

I still ride 2011-2013 kites and have not demoed any kites that I thought out out performed mine. The only characteristics that have been improved are in the light wind department. That's the boat I'm in now. My 2012 kites are getting real thin. The new stuff doesn't feel any better to me. Nor do I...
