I imagine sponsorship with kite companies and big name riders like NJ, Lewis Crathen, etc. is similar to that of other sports teams and their player lineup. You sign a contract for a length of time and when it expires, if you can't come to renewed terms with the sponsor/team, you go elsewhere. I don't think it's that big of a surprise that he left Cabrinha, but the fact that Pat Goodman went to North and there are several videos out there where NJ and PG work closely together at Cabrinha, it just makes me suspect. Pat Goodman worked a lot with NJ on the FX, so I just feel like there is probably some good chemistry there. On the other hand, I'm sure if Duotone, Naish, etc. offer the biggest $$ incentives, that's where he'll go, and can't blame him for that!

On another note - I saw NJ posted a video on Vimeo that costs $5 to watch - https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thejump/273678568
$5!? C'mon man...

Highly doubt the money would go to him...very interesting where his journey will take him though

2nd that!
watched the film few months ago on the Danish TV, it was available online for some time.

It's much more than the jump! It's few years of consistent progress to get there.
What one doesn't realise when watching the jump video is that the heli deck is shorter than the lines! So he had to basically launch a kite he doesn't see... in sketchy wind. HUGE RESPECT!

Tom Bridge just joined Cabrinha. Tom was a North rider previously I believe. So I guess they brought Tom in as Nick was outgoing... maybe a tradesies? :P

Kevin Langaree might well have boosted (sorry!) sales of the Pivot.

Perhaps you could indicate that under your "Brand affiliation"
