Since you're a braveman to ask I tell you what I heard.
As I mentioned it was USA F-One Distributor Rafael's site http://www.kitesurf.com
and business which was completely shut down because of contract litigation between F-One.
Now that old site is redirected to http://kitesurfcom.wix.com/kitesurf# as Shannon's new site.
But before it happened they lost Shannon as a consequences he was asking to get paid.
According Rafael he was asking over a 100K for his position included all expenses to be covered.
Obviously he couldn't pay that amount so it was a good reason,
Shannon created his own Best dream the way he told me at our spot,
since he had all the chemistry as also being a good rider in those days.
I never forget his dynamic days when he used to be boosting over 40 feet
while testing a prototype T.T. and broke completely half after a big boost. :thumb:
I just wanted to add what I heard from both side for the history of rise and taste of Shannon. :jump:
