Surely as Pryde already make kites, boards and foils, and bars - they will simply expand this?

zero chance for pryde to enter the kite industry, they just trying to survive and focus in windsurfing market, good news for cabrinha,looks like a win win situation for both,but time will tell...
Is all this kit made by someone other than Pryde? Looks to me like they are already in it?

First time I heard rumblings of this was back when the whole north-duotone thing happened.
Seems to me a lot of the big brands have their share of issues, which I'm sure is the same for the smaller ones as they seem to come and go as well. So many kite-producing brands out there I've never heard of or flown.

Personally I never liked supporting the big brands and prefer to support those guys/gals that have deep roots with the industry and produce a good product...I'd rather support Dimitri or Lou, which is why I am very curious to hear more about ONkiteboarding..hope their quality will be similar to the Wainmans. If it is I'll gladly support them rather than a big corporate machine telling me how wonderful their kites are and excel at everything.

I feel its time for the industry to get a big shakeup and start seeing some prices go down for a chance.....

Is manufacturing going to be moved to USA or just the HQ?

I personally love fireball and it is a shame more have not tried it. Once you try it you can feel the difference. Won't go back to the chi loop.

Manufacturing in US is more expensive. So pretty sure it won’t change.

I changed over years ago when the Fireball came out myself. It is a great system, been using it ever since that time.
