Anxious? Wake up at night in cold sweat? Relax it's only kiteboarding, so many brands already on the market, one more wont make a difference.

Hope he knows that ...

The new North dealers have already made their pre- orders so know what's being released. Just like many other brands do, they have signed a non disclosure agreement which prevents them from revealing anything till the head office says OK.

@leo de castro - The kites you've been getting that say "North" on them are now being designed under the name Duotone. There is no change in the company or production, we basically have a new brandname/logo on our kites starting in 2019.

Much like my name on this site used to be "Dan at North" and is now "Dan at Duotone", yet I still feel and look like the same person.

There is a new company to the kite industry, North Technology Group, who will be creating a new line of kites under the name North Kiteboarding. The kite designer for this brand has worked for Cabrinha in the past.

So... If you liked North kites in the past, you will probably be happiest on Duotone gear going forward.

As far as information on 2020 Duotone kites, I still have no information myself, won't find out until July.

-Dan

If you are still confused on this matter, you should not be strapping yourself to a traction kite in public.
