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

so based on that, if rolex changes name tomorrow in xelor, will be the same thing? I have my doubts. despite knowing that the product has not technically changed. Come on... NKb is HISTORY Apples and oranges. Nobody buys a Rolex because it keeps the best time. A quartz movement is more accurate and...

Re: North & Duotone - Your Questions Answered by CEO Till Eberle

Til Eberle ffs the man who didn't want North to engage in kitesurfing in the first place.

This is a catastrophic blunder of epic proportions imv, as usual, corporate ego's clashing and screwing a totally niche market with their bean counters..

Has nobody asked the question?

If it's 'True' kiteboarding now, then was everything before a Lie?

Re: Slingshot RPM 10m 2012 (missing parts)

I may have them, certainly have the pigtails, I'd need to see the yellow labels enlarged on the bridles. I've got lots of wing tip bridles mainly from Rallys, but they are all composites of different lengths, sp lets have a magnified look at the yellow label or check my website to see if they are on...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

I still ride 2011-2013 kites and have not demoed any kites that I thought out out performed mine. The only characteristics that have been improved are in the light wind department.

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

In my daydreaming and pencil on back of serviette scribblings I've often pondered on a sort of twin skin foil lei hybrid, to give the foil platform more protection against wind sheer and shifts. Probably be a bit too expensive for mainstream use but could possibly find favour in race foiling.
