That’s interesting...for me one of the most valuable pros...
How so?

Also, wait for an announcement of him joining the new north.
Nick strikes me as one of those rare athletes who doesn't take himself too seriously but is still one of the best in the style of big air. Humility, talent, and an all-around great guy. Im thinking he will probably end up with North Technology Group. Only time will tell. Wishing him all the best and whoever he goes with he will bring great things.
He’s a regular at spots around Copenhagen when he’s not travelling and I can confirm he is one of the most down to earth and approachable people you will ever meet. Just a cool dude. Period.

No connection? except what seemed key people are now at North. Strange Cabrinha would dump their main designer? Laughing? I thought Cab was doing well, clearing house does not indicate so.
:thumb: Word is they are facing many problems.

and word is that they try to get Damien Girardin from Naish as their new main designer

Poor Cab users. Maybe Naish is going to start making good kites then? Less brick and more flying thing.

Wonder what he is going to ride in the mean time. I suppose he can still ride his Cabs for now but if he joins the new North, they don't have any kites out yet AFAIK? Not good for his KOTA chances in 4.5 months.

I am sure he can buy the gear he needs for KOTA if he doesn't have anything yet.
Or stay with the Cabs.

Another also very valuable team rider is Lewis Crathern.
His riding, his coaching and his promotions in schools and universities are excellent.
Totally agree. A home town hero.

Used to live 1min from Goring Gap. Sadly 20 years too early. Only trend when I was there was CB Radio (yikees) and OAPs walking West Highland Terriers on the beach....

It's like musical chairs.

Next up RR and NJ crash a sports car together. Or they could tease it with every kite vid. Would be quite funny.
