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

It seems like a really lazy, to say the least, move by B&M to go with either True or Duotone as a brand, especially if you are going to have to build from zero and recover all the brand recognition that North has. At a minimum, you have to come up with a really, really cool brand name, which, defini...

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

A bit ambiguous really. The countdown says TRUE KITEBOARDING by Duotone, which can be interpreted both ways: Duotone is the brand and it represents "true" (real?) kiteboarding or TRUE is the brand under Duotone. Then again, the latter does not make that much sense as they should have said something ...

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

IMO, the success of ION is, that it is independent from other kite brands...a Cabrinha rider wouldn't want to wear a North lycra...but an ION is ok. Now making all North to ION will have that problem... So I doubt ION will happen. You're right. And not only that but ION also has windsurfing and oth...

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

Although people are right in saying it's the quality, innovation, design, etc. that matter, the brand name also carries a lot of weight. In this case, North has been one of the market leaders in the kitesurfing business for a while now and North sails is practically the most famous sail brand in the...

Re: Kite design software

I was browsing the web, looking for design software used by kitesurfing companies. Since the last post in this thread is from a while ago, I was wondering if someone had newer information?

Any information really appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Kite Harness 2.0, a technical overview from designer

Hello, my name is Mario and I'm the designer of DYNABAR and other JAY company equipment. Some of you remember the effort we made in 2008 to bring to market the Sliding Hook System SHS and after 9 versions and 5500pcs sold we are trying to understand why this solution is not yet well accepted by all...

Re: Ben Wilson announces his new Brand

From the kite info. page: "A great wave kite that also performs in all other disciplines." At this point, saying that a kite is for waves only would be a marketing suicide unless you are able to dominate a niche. I hope we eventually get there as in windsurfing (different wave sails for different co...

Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

I just found a thread where they ask Ben Wilson about waveriding and he says that it's possible to ride unhooked in almost any condition. When he explained the exception, I was expecting him to say side onshore but he said offshore! Coming from windsurfing to me it sounded strange because that's the...

Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

I stumbled upon this thread just two days ago and though it´s been a while since the last post, I thought I´d write what has come to my mind since reading it. I am a 70 Kg, 150 lb rider, mostly interested in riding waves. I came from windsurfing to surfing and then kiting and ride strapped and hooke...
