While I don't mind a little off topic every now and then I don't think the kiteboarding vs windsurfing discussion is necessary in this thread. :-?
Nor does it have anything to do with the threads topic. Just my two cents. Thanks.

Wouldn't it be better for them to go from NKB to NKOTB.

Riders on Instagram pushing the hashtag #truekiteboarding these days.

Something new about KITE name?

Duotone for windsurf and ..... TRUE for kite?

At least, duotone’s logo is not bat

truekiteboarding goes to north kiteboarding website

I hope its not Duotone, what a terrible name. True Kiteboarding, Ion, or even South Kiteboarding, would all be better names lol. I think it will be very difficult for North Sails to replicate the designs, manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of NKB.

Well all the knowledge, designs and manpower is with BM so ... North Sails is very unlikely to reproduce anything, unless tley will lease the name to another company.

My guess: if for example it's Duotone Kite Boarding then it would be abbreviated to something like DKB.

Duotone Ion Kiteboarding would be a bit of a problem. :wink:
