At Groundswell we believe in knowing our products so we can give the best possible advice & service.

The 2019 / 2020 season is on the way, and Groundswell has all the info on the new seasons equipment in store.

There was a big change in 2019 for the kiting world with the introduction of DUOTONE kites from Boards & More. The North Kiteboard name was dropped, & DUOTONE was adopted as the new brand name. The kites and personnel remained the same.
The North Kiteboard name has been picked up by a new design team, headed up by group of experienced personnel & the new North Kiteboard brand is launched August 2020..

So Essentially Duotone is a new brand name that has replaced North Kiteboarding, but the real changes are pretty much in name only for this season.
For pre-2019 North Kiteboard customers, Duotone will still provide the True kiteboarding experience, with the range of kites - Rebel, Vegas, Neo, Dice, Evo, Juice, Mono still in the Duotone line up.
Same is true for the twin tip board range, the surf board line up & their range of bar & lines..Clickbar, 5th element & quad.
For 2020 , there is a new North Kiteboard Brand which will have its own range of product.
If you call in and we'll show the new ranges from from the Cabrinha & Duotone.
