Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

It all stays the same, just instead of North it's now Duotone. Same team on land and on water. Do you know this for sure? ... Yes. The inside scoop is that Toby is correct. And there is no indication [currently] that the name North will be used anywhere on any kiteboarding or windsurfing products :...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

"Duotone" will forever remind me of a 1950's doo-wop band (e.g., the Monotones, the Cleftones, the Quin-tones, Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, Kenny Vance and the Planotones, the Deftones (they aren't '50's or doo wop, but still have the name)......). But I know "the Duotones" will produce some great ...

Re: 3-4 degrees upwind angle

Peter is correct of course. VMG is all that matters. When I am out having fun I sometimes chase other kiters, windsurfers or sailboats and have a mini race for a while. It is nice to be faster than almost anything on the water except other hydrofoilers. If my speed is the same as another kiter, but ...

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour Ready to Rip at St. Francis Yacht Club

Nico was always on Mikes Lab foils. A month ago he posted the quote below after his win: I am not sure why he doesn't list his board/foil sponsor now.. his board looks like a Mikes Lab in the latest pictures. :wink: CG 1st place at the Defi Kite 2018 !!! It’s a good start of the season for me ! Big ...

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour Ready to Rip at St. Francis Yacht Club

Results from day 1. Nico Parlier is continuing to be unbeatable with Johnny Heineken and Guy Bridge close behind. Big credit goes to 17 year old female competitor, Daniela Moroz, who is currently 6th in a field of 50 of the worlds best kite racers. It looks like a great event. :wink: CG Capture (Sma...

Re: Small tear in kite

Sail repair tape (Spinnaker tape) should be fine. Make sure surface is clean and fat free, use on both sides, and round the edges. Correct. Sail repair tape is rip stop polyester which is the same material as the kite canopy. If you are in a cold climate you should apply a bit of heat to set the ad...

Re: Rear foot in front of rear strap location narrow stance

Any stance and foot position that feels comfortable is fine. I often ride with my rear foot in front of the rear strap. But when you are in challenging conditions or you want to go fast you will want to get that back foot in the back strap. When going deep downwind very fast I would be scared if I d...
