With North Windsurfing (Boards & More brand) apparently getting renamed Duotone, there is a rumour that the actual North Sails (Sailing) are going to launch windsurfing sails again

Geez i dont know how I'm supposed to feel about their comments.
How dare i advance, take up foiling and go fast on their old boards
All i really got out of that was maybe they annoyed some people, times got competitive and tough, lets criticise them and lets have a crack at starting all over again.
Bring back the 80s!
Maybe i misread?

The biatching about board types was pretty much started by companies that promoted shortboards against longboarders, eons ago. It got to the stage where World Cup champions were publically heckled and abused if they dared to show up on something over 8 ft long, and it ended up with the sport 1/10th as big as it was. It was specifically and directly intended to make people feel bad about sailing anything but a shortboard in high winds. So if slinging **** around is a bad thing (and IMHO it is) then the shortboard side of the sport would be hypocritical if it complained.

The difference now is that no one is pouring **** on foiling. All some of us are saying is that it's not for everyone or for every time, and that promoting foiling (or high wind high performance) in a way that ignores or denigrates the rest of the sport isn't productive. Look at the people who are now promoting longboards - many of them (Tomas from Mistral, Robby, Bruce from Cobra, Svein) are World Cup sailors who, like the rest of us, love and sail shortboards.

The piece on the Mistral site isn't slinging **** at anything - it's saying that excessively pushing the extreme side of a sport isn't good for the overall sport, which is a different issue. And it's the product of research and study of what has really happened and why people really get into certain activities and ignore others - as many of them have been ignoring windsurfing.

Yes, bring back the '80s, when there were 500,000 boards sold each year, when every third household in some countries had a windsurfer, when there were shops all over the place, when the pros did well, when the sport got lots of publicity. What's so bad about that?

Will sub foiling be a thing or is it just a fad like normal foiling ?

If you mean what country are they based in then no, the answer is Austria. The brand is owned by the same company that owns Ion and Fanatic: Boards and More. Those guys are based in Molln, Austria.

I doubt it. Boards and More used to have a much larger brand pallet which for example included F2. They used to produce boards for F2 and Fanatic in Germany. I think it was around 2000 that they decided to shift production to South East Asia and sell off their manufacturing.Cobra is a composite manufacturer. Windsurf boards is only a small part of what they do.Makes no sense for a company like Boards and More that specialises in sports equipment marketing to buy a composite manufacturing company.

Mark lent me his 90 odd litre quad that he built for half an hour or so at Corros a few weeks back and I must say he's done an excellent job.

The board felt very well balanced and being a quad set up it ran back up the wave face far better than my dodgy old knees would usually allow. The board felt bullet-proof and nimble (unlike me). It wasn't a big swell or very windy day (5.3 sail) but the board handled the conditions very well and gave me plenty of confidence that when a bigger wave came through I wasn't going to lose grip and spin out in the turns.

Great effort Mark!

Thanks Ken :)

Hearing good things about the new one, new owner has said "epic" so that's nice to hear

Might have to make something bigger for me now....
