I don't know.
I think it should be up and running, since the kites have been already introduced at fairs. So there is now secret to keep.
Maybe they don't want to spend the money yet, are not sure about the layout or are so busy working on improvements, dealer structure, teams, etc
We will see...

Ik heard from Guy(BIC Sports UK, the distributor of Takoon) that it will be up at the end of februari, but it keeps getting later and later.

First they told me it would be up end of januari. All the info would be available and my shop told me that the kites would be available too. At this moment I was only able to see them at the BOOT in Duesseldorf and get a smal brochure. If they were on time I would have gone for a Takoon Skoop or North Rhino.

To me, it takes to long now. In a few weeks my holiday at Fuerte starts, so I run out of time. And I want to use them at homewaters first, it made it an easy choice.
I got 2 Rhino's last week.

and the Rhino isn't a bad choice :wink:
The Takoon will be about the same as the North. And the North may have better materials. Prices will be the same too, but the North bar is not acceptable.

Have fun with it

Hey Dr. Gonzo,

make sure you make some photos and write a report about this event!
And of course how these kites fly.
