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

Postby PinkNorthPride » Thu Apr 12, 2018 2:59 pm

Well the island of Cap Verde is buzzing with the very strong rumour that North Kiteboarding is no more. Due apparently to an acquisition gone wrong, depending on who you talk to either some UK outfit tried to acquire Boards & More, or Boards and More tried to sell but North refused to let them , but either way, the word is they have to change their name. Dutone that bastion of snowbording excellence has been selected which imv is probably worse than the thought of losing the North tag.
So from July 1st if you want your Rebel it'll be a Rebel from duotone or some similar shit...

Shame, end of an era, particularly sad as I helped start the brand in the first place many years ago..

True I'm afraid Toby even had it verified from a source very close to NKB, German dealers are here on Cap Verde going mental that they have no stock for the spring.

I believe they'll probably be stocking more from another well known German brand that co incidently just launched a new kite to huge critical aclaim..
