I'm not saying that the kite is bad, but whomever at Eleveight is responsible for suppliying their affiliated riders with "reviews" - is doing a very lousy job.
Normally I wouldn't respond to these types of posts. Silly comments like the one above (Eleveight is "supplying" reviews - lol) are amusing and harmless but I felt that a response is needed. Let's take a moment to step back and examine what is being proposed here...
The claim is that Eleveight Kiteboarding 1) hired a marketing firm to write copy and then 2) supplied the language to a National Team Rider for Best Kiteboarding (http://www.bestkiteboarding.com/en-us/t ... sey-mercer
to post within a niche community forum. Is this really
what you think lol?! Trust me, if a marketing firm was to employ gorilla tactics like this I assure you they wouldn't do it here. Did you consider that perhaps it "sounds like a marketing firm's unpaid intern" because it wasn't written by a marketing firm. It was written by a kiter...me. That said, I'm sorry my review does not meet your standards but I'm always open to feedback.
My feedback for you, and I hope you employ this advice because it will serve you in many areas of life beyond kiting, prior to jumping to irrational conclusions (e.g. that I was "supplied a review"), take a step back and think logically. Examine what I have posted in the past, do your homework, and then form the basis of a well-informed opinion. This way, you will not come across demonstrating inaccuracies or false accusations.
The reality here is that this is simply a review of a kite by a kiteboarder...that's all bro - nothing more. I post kite reviews to add value to the community and provide my experience. That is the truth. I've reviewed other kites in the past and will continue to do so in the future. I guess you're assuming I'm being "supplied" by them as well ... correct?
Chill my friend. Not everything is a conspiracy. Its just a simple review of a kite.
