Re: 2 Kitesurf company's with the same bar (crazy price)

Well crazy profit and kiteboarding aren't exactly two things that should be mentioned together. The margins in kiteboarding are relatively low. I can't for the life of me understand why people don't want their favorite brands to make money to pay people and designers to make better products? The fun...

Re: Need advice for kitefoil in waves

Hmm, I dunno why people aren't asking what the size and type waves you are planning to ride in are? On a regular average sized kite foil you can ride shoulder high waves quite easily. Personally, I believe a medium aspect wing will suit it better than high AR, but I do not think size is necessarily ...

Re: Firewire evo vs Naish skater

Well, obviously I have a lot more experience on the skater and that will definitely color my opinion. I did own the Vanguard tho so it is not like I have no experience with firewires. The vanguard was way heavier and felt stiffer and more draggy than the skater to me. The short run I had on the EVO ...

Re: What's the problem ?

And then refuse all future communications from him of any sort - telephone, email, letter, everything. The only communication you are obliged to deal with is a letter from his lawyer which if one arrives you should take to a lawyer to deal with on your behalf. Do NOT respond to a lawyer. Yes. Not r...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

I think the logo was developed for North Sails. So it’s theirs. But agreed, should also be different. Play it clean. I disagree. Logos and brand names are assets, intangible, but assets after all. North understands the value of the brand and logo and if they were theirs to start with, the only sens...

Re: Pull the trigger anxiety - Naish Pivot sizing

Given what Kevin Langaree is capable of doing with Pivots, including the 9m, it seems the 2017/2018 and surely the 2019 models, are more resistant to bending the leading edge. And he must be around 90kb. I'm 85kb, but have never done a powerloop, so my 2015 9m and 2016 7m have been perfect for me. ...

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

Tautologies- I think you might misunderstand the situation. Ion and Duotone (and North Kiteboarding) are not companies. They are brands. The company behind Ion and Duotone (and North Kiteboarding for the past 15 years) is Boards and More, of which Till is the CEO, so you can say that he owns both D...

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

Why it is not called ION ( interview with Till Eberle) You own the ION brand from which ION Club is derived. Why is the new brand not called ION Kiteboarding? This is something that we discussed internally at length. However, we came to the conclusion that from a brand positioning perspective it is...
