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

I think the name was important when people were switching from windsurfing to kiteboarding. Neil Pryde folks went Cabrinha, Nort, well stayed North, Gaastra was not in Canada so they went to Ozone, Sailworks went Slingshot (same kind of philosophy). But now if you learn on a duotone and see a bunch...

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

The change might be a good thing. Its a lose/lose situation. The true NKB will lose custmers to other brands for sure. Imho only way to keep the customers and attract new ones will be keeping the good design and lowering prices. At least for a while. I’m not sure customers will leave just because o...

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

As far as I know north the kites are built by an independent company. http://www.gslanka.lk/aboutus.html Kites are generally built in lots. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the 2018 stock isn't already built. At some point the name and graphics change. Ptobabaly 2019 rebel. And I would guess that ...

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

If B&M loses the naming right to North Kite & Wind, would and could North LLC appoint and new License holder to North Kite and North Windsurfing.... Surely the names have a value to someone. Bringing a third company into the Mix ... Which would mean we have new Kite Brand which arguably has the big...

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

That court document puts another spin on the story. North sails wants boards and more to continue using the north name so they can collect royalties. Boards and more apparently wanted to create a new brand name and stop paying. Around the time duotone was registered was when the claim was made. Tact...

All in on duotone?

I hope to something like ION KITEBOARDING or TRUE KITEBOARDING , that’s the best way i think and for sure sounds better than DUOTONE :angryfire:
I agree with that. :thumb:

If they have lost the rights, they could always relaunch as (say) Fanatic or Ion kites.
I'd buy Ion kites.

I hope duotone is just a prank or maybe the name of a new low cost lineup of boards.

Re: Firewire Vader Helium

well I have a helium kite evo. Extremely light. So far so good. I wouldn't call bullet proof it will ding but so far it seems to holding together.

Re: North Dice 2018

I think north does a fairly good job of comparing their own kites. I think you can narrow your search down by comparing these charts. NKB_Dice18.png I haven't flown the 2018 dice but it is true the 2018 evo can have light bar pressure. But since it is directly connected to the rear of the kite with ...
