As long as Toby gets paid for cleaning up after them allowing leaks it is all good in my book.

emember the dude that took the pics of the new unreleased naish kites when he was at the beach in a maui and posted them a few years back - that was some entertainment.. physical threats? and the like. It's a lifestyle lol

That was all bullshit. The guy was a weasel

Give me a set of kites or I post them online and f*** up your plans for the launch.

That stance was a touch aggressive as an opening gambit don’t you think?

A brand doing their job shouldn’t ever have to be in a position where someone thinks blackmail is a suitable action.

As for North? The size of the Egos on some of those dealers it will literally be a race to break curfew first. Not to mention who gets the biggest dealership/order/who gets the bragging rights, especially when two are from the same town, pass the popcorn.

Presumably Toby won't have to waste effort if people only post links to the other linked sources? So links to the leaked shots on Instagram are fine?

I suspect most of the previous North dealers stayed with Boards&more so the new North dealers are mostly new to the game. It would be interesting to know what the proportion between new and ex boards &more dealers is.

I assume they stay with B&M...but also look closer to what new North has to offer...if I would be them, I would keep carrying Duotone, and have a small stock of North...and then see how it goes.

I can imagine that North gives good conditions to start with?

Any dealer around who knows more?

OR they are one of the biggest in season discount stores that were never allowed a boards and more account and this is the perfect screw you...it also helps that they were big into Cab and now with most of Cab in residence at NTG it makes it that much more appealing

You miss read me, I meant dealers (importers) not retail shops. Big brand official importers are usually bound with exclusivity so can't represent 2 different brands due to conflict of interest.
