Re: Duotone

I like the 2018 kites but the were a bit too stealthy in the sky and too similar between types. Based on that video, the kites are more visible in the sky. I still don't understand why the kite size can't be printed plainly visible in large numbers on the canopy. The most expensive change I've seen ...

Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

In kiting, where do you exactly need the volume that much? in transitions volume makes difference, as well as area, and where the area and volume is in particular on the low end, and even on the very high end - also in surf depending on the wave and how fast you ride the wave on the low end, when y...

Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

the evo is about a half size larger than the vader so the 4' 10" evo is bigger than a 4'' 10" vader but not as big as a 5' 1" looked at the listed volume I ride a 4'' 10" evo at 165 lbs with a 5'6"" slingshot celeritas as my larger board or bigger surf if you ride powered powered up, the smaller evo...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

I sort of understand is if rolex became xelor would it still be rolex statement. Duotone might need to lower their prices at least at first.

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Yes. Remember, I work directly with the marketing department... And it can happen that they North Sails comes with its own kites. Or maybe license to another brand. But they need to go a long way to get where Duotone is. It’s hard for me to believe any reputable existing company would saddle themse...
