Looks like North is lacking inspiration for their product's names... :D :D :D
Pulse was already used by flysurfer for a kite
Scoop (Skoop) was used by Takoon back in the days
Nova is used by Peter Lynn kiteboarding
Swell is used by Peter Lynn kiteboarding
And somehow, more people relate those names to North, than to brands mentioned above ;)
Says who? Maybe if you are a newbie. How can "people" relate those names to a product that has barely been released?
12 years noobie :D Norths aggresive marketing, much broader audience and "nobody cares about peter lynn". Atleast on our market ;)

But for sure the main reason is the 40% off the RRP to any customer, at least in "our" market, isn't it? :lol:

Takoon's first Bow kite was called the Nova. That might as well be a thousand years ago now. Names get used over and over.

The North kit does looks pretty awesome. WGAS what it's called

Not entirely on the topic, 40% off on RRP would be nice, :lol: . And if its true, that could be one of the reasons, what makes their audience much broader. Anyway, nice toys, happy to be on board with North.

any thoughts about why some brands still using assymetrical inserts positioning in their boards?
is it a greed?

Yeah, why are some brands inline and others offset?

Hi Gunnar,
I need comparisons between:
- Levitaz Shaka L
- Moses W1100
- North Sonar 2200R
- Gong Full Carbon Curve XLT
Which Foil will be flying first at low speed?
Is it possible to get it flying on a flat lake only with a long paddle and pumping?
What about agility? (I know all of them are big) :wink:
