Can you please explain how these constitute trademark names? Don't you have to register them? I doubt that they could be admitted for registration.

I just realized 10,000 bucks buys a lot of kites.

Amazing the lengths some people will go.

And I thought their refund policy for lessons was as bad as it got. :cry:

Why don't they just trademark the term "Dickheads"?

I'd like to know if this is really for real(tm) or not, but based on what little I know about the company and its leadership, it wouldn't surprise me...

What refund? You mean the store credit for gear that you aren't technically qualified to use?

Exactly my point. I got into it with them a couple years ago about that. Search my posts and it is in there somewhere.

It is real. Oops am I allowd to use that term "real".


the funny thing is that they have not trademarked "Real Kiteboarding". So I guess I can trademark it and sue them?
