Steve, this is the way Rick presents articles to us.
Read all his reports of all kind, they are always well structured and have lots of infos.
I think he just did it to give us full information which no one had before.
I mailed with Rick and advised him to post it next time in the news section, but he didn't have access to it this time.

I'm ok with it, since it is a news for me and for others as well. Otherwise I would have acted.

Why do you say that?

Also, we got lot of cool looking kites, but what about the other stuff? Any pictures of the boards, bindings and bars?

And I noticed "EH" on one of the kites. Is that for Eric Hersens?( Sorry if I spelt the last name wrong. Could not remember what it was.) If so, what's his roll in the company?

Seems like from the web site talking about shipping and low costs that these kites might be mail order/online only? This would actually be really cool if we could see kites sold manufacturer direct without retail markup... could mean saving a ton, as retail markup is huge.

I think the fact that people are actually buying China kites despite no real advertising or branding proves that the internet based business model can work.

resale value is most important to me and that´s more of a brand and popularity issue ! Long way to go and not easy to replace by cutting just one trade level !
