If I read between the lines of the interview with Ken Winner (and I look at the shape of the kite) it looks like North are putting the "bow" into the Vegas this year. Time to stock up on the 08s (and that is before one considers the vile colour scheme).

What a pity. I was hanging on to my 06s in the hope of changing to 08s when the 09s come out, but now there is a risk everyone will be trying to hang onto their 08s ...

Not to be picky but the bar is the wrong way around in the picture of the bar ( http://www.surfingarea.com/images/north2.pdf ). Looks good I reckon!

I bet the kites and boards look way better in the flesh, personally I like the graphics.

cheers,

Robert.

It's a world wide market.

Italy, Germany, US, Japan, etc, all have different styling tastes.

Hard to please everyone.

I like the kite graphics.

did someone say ugly???? holy crap. i thought you were just giving them crap so i checked it out. i would have to say that they are the worst and ugliest looking colours and graphics i have just about ever seen on any kiteboarding gear to date.
