    North Sails for yachts and North-Windsurfing are separate companies.
    Looking for information on Boards and More I found that Bloomberg reports the company produces 70 million € in revenue

    Gaastra rebranded themselves GA so its no big deal, unless they have already produced all their gear for the year and are forced to dump gear with their old logo after the July 1st date.

    Yes & it seems like it's hurt them a bit IMHO... Most people just continue to call them Gaastra anyway. I think Duotone is not great - ION would be much better... Either way the loss of the North branding & marine heritage is a bummer...

    Gaastra still call themselves Gaastra, at least in the adverts I've seen.

    Yes - don’t understand that myself when you have all the old imagery of Robby on his iconic pink gaastra sails!

    You could argue its an opportunity to revitalise a brand, all be it with a weak name at the moment.

    Eh? North isn't a weak brand, certainly not in the kite world, it's the market leader, if you're talking about Gaastra, why bother it's done, gone away, is there even a headstone somewhere?
