I have read that North kites are coming back onto the market this August. Anyone got any dates or other information? Who will be the retailers in Aust?

Interesting to see Marc Jacobs has just moved across from Switch.

Release date 8th of August worldwide. Probably 9th in Australia.

There's a Demo day at Brighton le Sands, Botany Bay area near Kitepower Saturday 10th August.

Otherwise go to Facebook North page.

Facts are they have a very proven team so i cant wait to see what is going to be revealed soon.

It CANT be bad.

It must be atleast in top 10 brands i just hope theyve come up with a lineup that puts it in the top 5.

I really hope they as a company threw money at it all and said everyone GO WILD do all the crazy things the companys you use to work for wouldnt let you do!

And its not just switchblade 2.0 (which wouldnt be bad but not something i would personally ride)

^^^^absolutely, this will throw a spanner in the works with a big player pushing into a limited market. Must be a few nervous companies out there. North has been around for years in the world of sailing and windsurfing, so have the technical aspects and business acumen to make it work. Plus they must have a heap of $$$$ behind them.

Still can't access their website yet.

So who in Australia (WA) will be stocking North?

Always worth giving a new kite a go.
