kite down

Postby j.galololi » Wed Aug 24, 2005 7:14 pm

I'm not here to bash, but Shannons kite at King of the Bay fell into the water and basically looked like the leading edge was flat because it had zero shape to it and looked flat. Turns out it was underpumped on purpose to avoid the leading edge blowing up. After all the Hellfish bashing on the forum and then watching Shannon swim in at King of the Bay, I actually felt a little sorry for Best, at least for Shannon.

The only thing I feel sorry for is Shannon's name on the Blowfish.

I have flown the fish and its nothing special even when it can stay in the air. Yes, its true, the hypefish cannot relaunch for shit either. It relaunches about as good as a foil lol.



Well..... its over for best kites.

They sure went down the tubes quick. They just flushed all their cred down the toilet with the hypefish........... Best will probably be out of business soon as no one with a functional brain would buy a best kite now.


I suggest anyone who purchased a kite form them either sell it immediately or attempt to get a refund from best asap.

Hel2bDoct0r!, Best is not going anywhere. You should probably stay in Ithiopia where the kiteing is so good. They have made excellent kites from day one and now have had a manufactureing defect in the kite which will not force them to go out of buisness. Let's see if anyone can think of any kite that were flops but didn't kill the company.

FLEXIFOIL - "Nexus" Still going strong.

Just one off the top of my head. The HF flew 100 times better then that kite.

Taken from http://www.bestkiteboarding.com/s.nl/sc ... A/id.46/.f as of 24/8:

Other kites will feel doughy, sluggish and slow in comparision. In fact traditional kites are simply obsolete.



Because of the advanced aerodynamics, 80% reduction in drag, 70% reduction in weight and enhanced load bearing capacity, the Hellfish is simply so much more powerful and responsive than a traditional kite, it is like comparing a Ferarri to a Honda.
lol.

Bests need to stop tellin lies to their customers if ther going to stay in da game for much longer.

IE:

traditional kites are obsolete

70% reduction in weight

the hellfish is much more powerful /responsive than a traditional kite
