Am sure I recall Fanatic kites back in the day - flat design with inflatable leading edge and battens as struts ?

There were Fanatic twin tips at least up until 2008.

South Kites used to be a kitesurfing brand. Now known as "Magic Bruce".

duotonekiteboarding.com has also been recently registered (23 January): https://www.whois.com/whois/duotonekiteboarding.com

If there rumours were to be true, "Duotone" sounds like a poor choice.

nope, different domain name.
That's true. But same root name, registrant, and contact.

If this new entity wants to call itself "DKB" I suspect it'll have a legal fight on it's hands.

hence the "also": has also recently been registered.

From what I hear North Sails Group (USA) owns the North brand. They made an offer to take over Boards & More (Germany), which was declined. The renewal of the licence to use the brand name was tied to this acquisition.

I hope to something like ION KITEBOARDING or TRUE KITEBOARDING , that’s the best way i think and for sure sounds better than DUOTONE :angryfire:
