Ryan liked the company so much it looks like he's going to be coming on board as one of the U.S reps.

70 members of the The Masskiting crew took a trip down to OBX the first week of May and we hooked up with Ryan and the Best Crew. They showed us some great hospitality coming out for a huge demo day and also giving away some free swag at a party we threw at the Froggy Dog on our last night there. Check out the pictures and Preview of our 2011 video to be released at the end of the summer.

Huge thanks to Ryan and also the guys from Real who came out to take pictures, video, and just
chill in the beautiful weather down there!

Over eight years later, Shannon Best moves on. Just read this on SBC Kiteboard:

Image

BEST Kiteboarding today announced that Shannon Best is leaving his day-to-day role with the company
to pursue new opportunities within the consumer sports industry. After nine years of helping to build
BEST into oneof the largest and most successful kiteboarding brands on the market, Shannon needs to
scratch a new itch in other water sports enterprises.

As the company continued to grow and relocated its North American operations from South Florida to
Hatteras, Shannon remained in Florida, taking a less active role within the company to concentrate on
his other business interests. He now intends to spend all of his time developing these other projects.
Everyone at BEST wishes Shannon great success in his future endeavors and thanks him for his
commitment to the brand since its inception. As long as his name remains on our products, we will
always look forward to the next time he stops off from his travels to come Ride With Us.

Guess he's going to retire to SUP'ing... One step better than playing golf...
:rollgrin:

A major contributor. He's earned the rest.

'Course they could go the same route that Prince took and rename the company, "The Company Formerly Known As Best" (TCFKAB ?) and just use the Fish logo as their glyph.

Shannon asked me to create this post announcing the launch of Best to the world
online back in 2004. It seems only fitting to pass on the news of his leaving the firm
in the same thread. Good luck out there Shannon and thanks for all the kite sessions
over the years (fish too)!

Shannon, Jeff and the team eight years ago just getting things going.
