Hey Toby, cool event! But why did you not do an interview with the guys from the BIC booth (Takoon) ???

Make sure you leave the place clean, my annual convention in that place is coming in November!

CU buddy!

Hey Toby,
how about preparing the interviews for a change?!
The Ben Meyer one was pretty ... let's say ... improvised.

But other than that: great vids!!! :thumb: :thumb:

Ryan could be more critical about the safety systems. More details at least.

I realize everyone is super pumped to see "what's next", but (speaking for Kiteforum) these vids are just glimpses of the new product. They aren't intended really to be specific presentations of all the dealers and their new equipment. Many items are still in testing phase or prototypes, so they can't all come to the table with complete detail even if they had time to.

I was a product buyer for 8ish years at Surf Expo and it is a hectic experience.

Thanks to Kiteforum and Kiteboard Magazine for even giving us a peek of what to expect for '09. Should be a good year for new products.

Hey,

Thanks for all the hard work in gathering the interviews. I enjoy hearing what they have to say and giving us a sneak peak of the new gear.

Also, I like the fact they are not staged interview sales pitches. Keeping it real.

Flexifoil didn't attend the fair. We covered all, who came.
