Re: Strength V weight for holding down power.

Re: Whats your favorite kite of all time?

Re: Kitesurf Direct sales aren't traditional brands greatest threat ? (switch, takoon, gong...)

Then a market gets over supplied, THEN price competition comes to play, whereby companies than can work their economies of scale swallow up the indebted and struggling smaller compan...
