Well... I assume the northern hemisphere is the biggest market. Am I wrong?

So to this logic new products should be introduced for the main season of the northern market...which starts in April/May.

BUT...new gear is available for purchase from August/September on. That’s the end of the main season...

So then I assume Nick won't be in KOTA again next year for 2 reasons:

1 He doesn't have gear (I would think he cannot still ride Cab in a comp like KOTA)
2 He didn't submit a video entry (unless I missed it).

I don't think a former winner of the KOTA has to qualify if he wants to compete.

I didn't see any qualifiying video of Langeree

Does everyone have to submit a vid entry? I thought they were wildcard entries only. (This was literally a brainfart so you're probs right)

I reckon he could ride Cab, it's not going to harm any reputations....unless he left under a cloud, or the lawyers get involved.

The top riders don’t need to submit videos, they are pre qualified.

Nick will have some prototypes to use for KOTA...he will attend for sure.

Do you know what the KOTA regulations are? Does it need to be (registered) production equipment like IKA/TT:R, etc.? Thanks
Asking as I remeber he won KOTA with a standard off-the-shelf SB.

You can take whatever you want.

And that should never be changed!

What brands have Pat Goodman and Mike Raper been affiliated with before?
Which kites have they developed?
Are there other interesting design names in the new North team?
They both came from Cabrinha.

They both developed big crap as Cabrinha. Success came to them from NP marketing which is or was very strong.
It is a pity that new North brand gets into the same vessel. Or may be that guys struck new ideas? Then interesting!!
