Just listen to Toby’s sound & reasonable initial advice: Thumb up = Launch Tap head = Bring the damn kite down WTF more do you need Why do ppl complicate life 🙄 This is actually all you need to know. If there is anything else wrong, there are enough signa...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Do you snowboard on tarmac or rocks or something like that? My snowboards have been gone on for years and years, while I'm often doing boardslides. Just going downhill and jumps doesn't really wear out my board. Same with my TT, it only wears out when I start in the sand. And it's going at a slow ra...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

.... How about other company names such as Cabrinha, Gaastra, Wipika, Takoon, and Naish. These are all kite companies with strange names that we have gotten used to. Haha strange names?! Most names are iconic people in watersports with major achievements. Or you think Cabrinha or Naish or Gaastra a...

Re: Safety line slack under the Y, north trust bar 2013 5th

A bungee only has a certain elastic span. By trimming the kite, you would use up that elastic span, making the safety line a loaded 5th.

everyone knows that it is North's line
That everyone nearby you knows this doesn't mean that all the Ion buyers know this.
I'm pretty sure the biggest share of kiters don't know this.

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

I think you might be overestimating it. Look at the other brands. 'Ozone', 'Peter Lynn', 'Cabrinha', ... all those names without any context are not appealing to me. Yet they are quite big kite brands.
The name is not everything. But I must admit that North was/is the coolest name out there imo :) .

I care about discounts. And I don't want to miss out on any discount if they will give bigger discounts than usual because of the name change :D

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

I'm looking around for new kites for this summer. I was thinking to buy previous year North Dice kites (or Ozone Enduro, not sure yet) from the shop. And I really don't want to wait another year, I already waited since last year. Should this brand name change make the North kites cheaper? I don't ca...
