North’s newly strengthened design team recently farewelled kite Designer, Pat Goodman, and would like to take this moment to thank Pat and acknowledge the hard work he has put in during his time with the brand.

“We are very grateful for Pat’s contribution over the last three years. He played an integral role in the successful relaunch of North Kiteboarding under North Actionsports Group,” says Brand Director Mike Raper.

“Taking a new kite range to market involves long hours and heavy workloads all round, and we’ll miss having Pat along on this journey.”
