Think about this.
If they had just gone with ion kites and ion windsurfing everyone would of just been like, ah ok they are changing name.
Instead Duotone has created over 100 pages of comments on kite and windsurf forums plus all the talk on social media.

Marketing genius to get the name out there :D

Dan...good man....will Till, reduce my bill, now there’s no licence fee, jacking up the price to me?
Mr. Till, since you are at it, next time instead of a trip to Patagonia / Fiji / Maldives etc. could you shoot your promos in, like, Hawaii at Mr. Winner's doorstep or something and pass the savings on to us? Much appreciated!

God damn lol. This forum is not safe to browse at work during breaks or any cafes. Toby Is there a way to implement an 'NSFW' tag before someone uploads certain pics? I'll be heading straight to HR at this rate.

What a shit name!
Simply does NOT roll of the tongue with ease both for English and non mother tongues!
Rich egos suck!
At least North was one of the first to correctly define what we do,
kite boarding
NOT kite surfing unless done in waves by definition....
Ever seen anyone "surf" on a flat lake?

Once again we can blame the poleboarders for deciding that they should be wind'surfers'.
Everything that is wrong is one way or another their fault...

I agree and here now even Foil boarding in the "wake" starts, but is not that a small wave, hence surfing?
Shall we call this wake foil boarding, sure hope I get to!
By the way wind surfing should be called sail boarding unless also done in waves, just makes sense.
But like many ignorant acceptors of using the wrong word, STRUT, not mat for example, many become to accept it even though it is so
wrong!
Interesting that some non English speakers seem to have no problem with the word STRUT for kites, the exact correct word, but claim that that word does not exist in their language, Strange no?
