So True is the new kiteboarding brand? :-)
Would be funny if North Sails named their kitebrand 'True' :rollgrin:

Maybe North is saying ‘True North’ and not the previous user of name (Duotone)

Re: Advice from an older married kiter to a young one

Re: Remora Suction Foil Mount

Thanks for the update Paul.
I am sure it will go through some iterations over time and improve in design.
What is the process to order one? And which country are they going to be made - for shipping and costs
