North, back in the fold.

Postby Black_Cat » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:41 am

I was looking through Instagram and saw Nick Jacobsen tester a prototype North kite. (I guess this post is already helping their publicity)
I wounder if he was not allowed / contracted to ride 'North' until the new year.

He just received protos for KOTA.
So I assume they developed until now but wanted to have him riding a North kite for KOTA, since he is the official team manager for them...and KOTA is an important marketing event as well.
He will cause a lot of attention. As you can tell with your posting!

Yes, I know. For sure will be 'interesting' when the "ZZ North" kites go head to head with the "Duotone True Kiteboarding" kites ...

So just from the pic, any chance Peter Stewie is designing for the New North?

No, Peter designs for Eleveight.
And if I understand correctly he is also part of the owners.

Pat Goodman designs for new North, former Cabrinha designer.

Could be true that Red Bull kites are not allowed to be resold. Makes sense to keep up the exclusivity.
