Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Kitesurfing's like any products that require capital expenditure and deliver economies of scale, you need big numbers and investors see a profit from financing that. (hah idiots). I believe most of the North stuff is/was made at Aqua Dynamics. It's just an umbrella change, it means nothing for North...

Re: Best bankrupt?

There's more than two of them there. Hopefully, they'll be out from underneath their old owner soon.

Re: Best bankrupt?

That's cool, glad to see them pulling through. No doubt there has been a huge amount of work behidn the scenes to shape the company into this new streamlined image. and 99.99 for a complete bar, that's old school BEST.

Re: Best bankrupt?

I noticed that BEST must have had some new stock arrive this week. They were down to very limited sizes when I look last week, but they seem to have a wider spread of gear in now- and an extra 25% off for Black Friday.

Re: Best bankrupt?

Correct, BEST did not purchase the bow kite patents, they were purchased by a holding company owned by Javier, who owns Best. https://kitesurfingmag.com/north-kiteboarding-signs-up-for-kite-patent/ but other than that you're flat out wrong. Cabrinha, Neil Pryde do/did owe them money and North did en...

Re: Best bankrupt?

I don't know what they have in place with their suppliers, but they were in the hole with Neil Pryde for close to a million dollars. NP did owe BEST a similar amount for use of the kite patents so maybe they traded it away and came to an agreement for future production. I hope so. They also make wit...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Sq, exactly my point. Launch your brand on its own merits, not by bouncing off a failure, seems like a cheap way to get attention. Start a new thread and pay Toby. If you worked under those conditions, it sucks, and everyone who did should have quit before a melt down. And you did quit. Kudos. I le...
