Sad, end if story of great brand. Why their not choosed Westkiteboarding ? Much better and much attractive. Or why not Tritone kiteboarding ?
I like Duotone logo better than the North logo. If the kite design technology stays the same, then I'm good!

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

Holy cow looks like 70Kn wind inside that funnel. I have measured 64Kn wind at the beach during a typhoon and that's how the water surface looked like.

Re: Leash wrapped around harness hook

I wrap my leash into something so thick that it does not have a chance to get caught on snag on to anything. I used the soft black spongy rubber tubes used as pipe insulation from hardware store, but now I moved on to (don't laugh) corrugated plastic pipes used for water drainage in washing machines...

Re: Harness replacement webbing

I have more than fair share of experience in breaking harnesses because I crash hard. Any hardware store will have better nylon webbing than you can get from a kite manufacturer at a fraction of the cost. Get it. Don't go to shoe repairers for the fix. All of my harnesses repaired by shoe shops brok...

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

Googled Porto Seguro - seems to be a narrow beach with high vertical cliffs near the water edge. Maybe a rotor caused by sudden gust picked him up and threw him down? From the google pic it does not seem seguro to me...

Re: North Trust bar 2018

I'd stay away from using North lines (even free) and spend a few bucks on hi quality aftermarket Spectra (Amsteel, Liros etc.). It will take you 15 minutes to learn how to splice it (Google) and 1 hour to measure, cut and splice and install. Once you have used good quality spectra you won't go back ...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

Q-power with figure or 8 loops, used one line set for about 10 years, been dragged underwater, crashlanded kiteloops, yanked every which way, dragged over rocks and beach garbage, deathlooped... still looks like new. I'm 90kg. Q-power just will not die. But Q-power stretches a little, not a lot but ...

Re: Fastest Turning Surf Kite?

If you want your kite to turn faster, just get a longer bar. You's be surprised how effective a 60cm bar can be, especially in waves where you need to recover the kite from wrong position in the window. YANK!!! Done!
