Northwave Sails - What Say You?

I see a few Northwave sails in the gallery on the site, so I am asking anyone out there who has one, sailed one, or even fondled one what they think about the Northwave brand, as I have not seen a recent specimin in person.  Are they constructed well with attention paid to their finishing (seams, etc.)?  Worth the money? Thanks.DaveSee More

A few items for sale:

2002/03 (?) North Infinity 6.0m:  Might have seen water once or twice...the monofilm has no watermarks or hazing from the sun. Looks like a brand-new, 10 year-old sail! Picked it up as a spare and never did use it. Rigs on a 460 mast (485 luff). Asking $50 Da Kine Pyro Waist Harness:  Like new condition 2012 (2011?) Dakine Pyro Waist Harness...only a few sessions with it. Complete with stainless steel kite-specific spreader bar, but will switch it out for windsurfing spreader bar if asked. …See More
