They chose "takoon" because it was not yet registered on the net.

So we should say "takooning" and no longer "kitesurfing???" But what if you don't have a takoon? Do you have to stay behind in this case and just continue "kitesurfing???"

A few years ago some French started a windsurf board company "Halekuleka" or something like that.
Besides it local sales (Almanare/Hyeres) it never really took off.

Still TAKOON is a very good brand with quality kites. Amongst the better ones especially the Skoop.
