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: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Guys, ignore the jumpingjack ... err shark... champion. His mommy turned off cable, so he‘s replaying his faves on social media.

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

The other established kite brands must be privately laughing behind their hands - what an utter shambles. :roll: So far it would seem the competitors are the only winners in all of this.
