So, we've all had our name and the brand name we rely on for our living's name dragged through the mud because a disgruntled rider didn't get an ambassador deal?
No.. you don't mean it's fake news?

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Takoon is also direct And going nowhere... At least in English speaking countries, do they even bother to translate their stuff now? The direct model always has an appeal, but ultimately the structured model works better simply because of opportunity for profit from enthusiasts at local level broad...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Can’t find any reliable sources online to confirm the industry figures for 2017 and though there’s a market research report from Technavio, you have to pay big bucks for access. It obviously differs geographically but within the EU and what I see on a regular basis I’m fairly certain SS is not a bi...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Looks like you got a little drivel I’m there too! Kinda disingenuous to set the record straight with a bit of falsehood mixed in to make you reflect well. Pretty revisionist to throw your current baby in the mix with Naish, SS, Cab and North. Core habe never been in the same league as the big five....

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Sailing/windsurfing companies had a poor grasp of the sport. They leveraged their existing market share, channels to gain dominance. Quite sad to see even today marketing winning with inferior products. Paragliding companies have a much better basis to design kites, they do fly after all, and gener...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

The logo belongs to North Sails. I'm not so sure.. If memory serves, given it wasn't B&M or Til Eberle or any of their staff that initially set up North Kiteboarding it was primarily the North American Distributor, then called North Sports in concert with some other distributors that wanted Kite pr...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Well worse than that, the North Sail business model is consumer direct and knowing some of the names on that list and their propensity for previous international screw ups if they pursued that business model it could be a road to the mother of all melt downs.. Certainly here in the UK, couple that t...

Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Well how the world turns.. Just as I thought I'd have to be that awful two tone name a little bird tells me there has been some massive recruitment of ex Neil Pryde, ex Cabrinha product guys as they seem to be going through some corporate cleansing at the hands of the bean counters, by no other than...
