Thanks, they make quality gear and hope they stick around. Was never a fan of the flying dolphin graphics though. The performance of eleveight kites shown in videos has got my attention. Sorry to hear Best lost their designer.

Just wanted to say that I ordered a Best Cabo from the US warehouse (by credit card) at the beginning of Oct not realizing the financial situation (yeah, pretty poor due diligence on my part!). They got back to me pretty quickly and said that it would be at least a month or more to get the kite from the warehouse in Spain, but that I could always cancel. When I saw this thread, I just went and cancelled, and they refunded me quickly, and emailed to confirm. Thumbs up to the US group for being professional.

I ended up finding a couple of never-used 2015 Cabo's on Ikitesurf Classsifieds ($750 for a new 9M, 7M, and 46cm bar). Awesome foiling kites at an easy-to-swallow price....All's well that ends well

Thanks for sharing. Yes, Kevin who runs the US operation is a great guy with a ton of integrity. I can't really speak for other parts of the company but anything that goes through the US office be handled professionally.
