Cabrinha comes back to the US

Splitting off from NP HK and coming back to the US.

"To take on the role of Cabrinha’s CEO, Modica has appointed Kent Marinkovic, President of Adventure Sports Inc., the world’s leading distributor of Cabrinha Kites."

I wonder what this means for Adventure sports and windsurfing, too. They are the NP distributers for North and South America I think. I wonder if their already diminished US presence will slip further. (They have minimal retail presence here instead selling mostly directly.)

I imagine NP will do their own line as kiting is pretty big in China especially with the Olympics coming up. Part of me imagines that the RS:X had more to do with Beijing hosting the '08 Olympics rather than its merits as a raceboard.
