Boards & More, the co-founders of North Kiteboarding, will launch a new company named Duotone on 1 August 2018. The "North" brand is owned by North Sails Group.
"We and North Sails Group had different views about the future of North, so we decided to come up with our own brand," explains Till Eberle, managing director of Boards & More.
Eberle confirmed that the popular kites like Vegas, Rebel, Dice and Neo will still be available under Duotone. The company will also continue the production of twin-tips and surfboards. At the moment, it's not known whether the North Sails Group will continue operating in the windsurfing and kiteboarding markets.
Close to the border of Russia and Mongolia sits the biggest fresh water lake in the world. Aaron Hadlow, Stefan Spiessberger, Craig Cunningham, Noe Font and Fran Bagnioli met up with team rider Artem Garachenko. The trip was planned to be an adventure but nobody expected this. Multiple broken vehicles, days and weeks without wind, countless hours on the road, low nutrition and some of the hardest conditions, all made the sessions they got that much more special.
The 6th annual King of Kite festival is announced for the 7th & 8th of July. The event will be hosted by the Kahuna Surfhouse at Softades beach (Cyprus). This year's guest of honor and judge is 3x World Champion Bruna Kajiya.
It'd be great to always have wind and waves like today, but on the other hand the calm helps to have some stuff done. And there was a lot of calm days lately. So the portal has been thoroughly updated.
One change led to another and since it was always the plan to make the portal's database useful for as many types of extreme sports as possible the portal's name and domain have also been changed.
Now wavefront.ru will be redirecting to the portal's new domain x3mdb.ru. The portal can also be accessible through x3mdb.com or ExtremeDatabase.ru. The portal's pages and groups in social networks will also be updated according to the new version.
