They used to be on the market many years ago with kites and boards.

Then vanished. Looks like they are back now

It is a kite brand from the alps and that’s where I see their gear the most. Their Chitchat twintip and their Wildthing zebrapattern kite seem to be popular (or maybe the kite sticks out because of how different it looks). I own their Jn Randas, an easy to set up quickturning snowkite.

I don’t think they ever went away but never a big brand here. Primadonna was / is an excellent kite, 5 line hybrid C-kite similar to North Vegas, then they had/have Wild Thing bridled open C-shape and Mr Fantastic more of a Delta shape. Good quality kit. I had an early 13m Wild Thing when it was still a full on 5 line C-kite, not the easiest to re-launch but still possibly the best boosting low wind kite I ever had. Still miss that kite…
