Shops cant get anything. I've been waiting for weeks.

Is nothing coming out of China?
2020 lineup has a delay of at least 5 months in shipping, know of distrubutors that order by the cointainer load in July during hte meeting and just recieved the new products in January, so not coronavirus related.

You evidently do not understand how viruses such as COVID-19 spread. Here's a link ...

China is fucked. The government has created the problem by over reacting. It now can't back down because it would need to declare victory and if it did, then well the virus would soon prove who really won. Their precious social order faces one an increasing perilous fate the longer the insane conditions President Poo imposes, and then a wonderful backlash when the people realize it was all for nothing. I mean 99% of the masks they are wearing don't do shit to stop you getting an airborne virus, most of the medical personal are infected and spreading it. Hospitals operating as infecting centers. Apartment buildings as petri dishes. Outside is probably the safest place.

Trump’s China trade deal doesn’t even get us back to square one, despite immense cost

OK so locking 800 million people in their homes while your entire economy collapses is not overacting? What do you think is going to happen after a few months of this? What is going to be more damaging, a virus that seems about as bad as the flu or your economy collapsing with riots and starving. The Chinese government is complaining about international restrictions which are about 1000 times less extreme than what they are doing domestically. We now have infections originating from countries other than China, so unless borders are completely closed you can't stop it. It is likely spreading silently already globally for a long time now. Any measure we have taken just slowed it and won't stop it. Round 2 onwards is where things could be interesting. Much of Chinese officials involved as potential vectors are not even using masks that would prevent them becoming infected.

Anyone know what's up with Neil Pryde distribution? I've been trying to get an XL wing for months and last word was release will be in Spring but, now I'm not sure if that's going to happen. It'll really suck to not be able to up grade my foil especially after waiting so long for this wing.

Perhaps I'm wrong but I read somewhere that Cabrinha ownership went back to Pete (was NP group I think), maybe this is the reason.

We will see who has the suppositions. The future only bears the truth.

True. This could explain the delay.
