Do anything ride anywhere

Postby Nico » Wed Dec 10, 2008 3:34 am

This is what i saw on the best add for their 2009 waroo."Do anything, ride anywhere".
Now I understand what hapened last weekend:
During our yearly Billabong sponsored surf contest in the south of the island the two best reps/dealers/distributors/... decided it was a good idea to follow the North rep/dealer and show off their wares and skills in the lineup amongst the surf contest competitors. After all the spectators were there.
Well i can tell you the tempers did get very hot with around 40 surfers who developed an instant hatred, and the image of kitesurfing and kitesurfers suffered another serious blow because of this selfish and unthought action.
Personally I wasn't to pleased myself.
The moral of the story: Show respect, and you'll get it back.

These guys do not surf.
They probably thought it would be a good idea to show surfers what kiting is about.
