Back In Black: Team Yarga -You wanted it, you got it

You asked for it, so we're giving it to you: the all-black Team Yarga with
two silver fish and nothing else ... not even sizes printed on the wingtips.

It's the exact same kite ridden and worshipped by our pro team ... a pure,
unbridled, tried and tested c-kite. This is not a new design. There is
nothing new about this kite at all. No new technology, no bells and
whistles, nothing user-friendly about it. It's simply a no-nonsense c-kite
for hard-core wakestyle riders, and it's quite simply the best C-kite we
ever made.

There's no pump, no silly little patch repair kit, no stickers ... just a
kite, in a simple lightweight nylon bag (sorry, we know you C-kiters have a
lot of bags already, but we had to put the kite in something).

If you're a diehard, dedicated C-kite rider, you already know that this is
the kite for you. On the other hand, if you have to ask if this kite is for
you, it's not. Don't even think about it. Stick to your SLEs. And no, you
can't demo it ... not unless you hunt down one of our team riders and ask
them nicely if you can demo one of their kites. We're not interested in
marketing this kite, so there aren't going to be any demos. We're only doing
this for the very small section of the market that asked for it and already
know what it is ... and they don't need to demo it.

At Best Kiteboarding, as much as we believe that the future of kite design
is towards the SLE, we're committed to making as many riders as happy as we
possibly can. So if that means giving a handful of hardcore C-kiters the
kite that they want, we're more than happy to provide them with it. When our
customers are happy, we're happy.

The new, all old, old-school Team Yarga. Badass like you've haven't seen in
years.

Now, shut up and ride.

Team Yargas are available for preorder now, with an estimated delivery
around 7/15.

What the team has to say:

Dave Drinkwater: "In 2009, I switched from the Team Yarga to the 09 Nemesis,
because I got tired of telling everyone who asked where they could buy the
kite, that they couldn't. But then Sam (Medysky) got a quiver, and it was
hard seeing them every day. It was like having a new girlfriend, but having
to work with your hotter, better ex-girlfriend every day and not be able to
have her. Now that the Team Yarga is available to everyone, and people can
buy it, I get to ride it again, so I'm really happy about that."

Joe Ruscito: "I've gotten so used to riding the 09 Nemis that when I go back
to the Team Yarga, they beat the crap out of me. If I'm feeling tired, I'll
ride the Nemesis, but when I want to go all out and really ride, I'm on the
Team kite. I love that kite. I just couldn't ride it for so long ... since
we weren't selling it, it couldn't be in any of Gavin's shoots, so I got out
of practice. I'm really glad I get to ride it again, without having to be
all stealth about it.

Here is a hunch, Best wants to go after the kiters who also like the Wainman kites for their color.

I have suggested some changes to Dave's review of the Team Yarga. The changes are suggested for consistency only. :wink:

If the worst thing you Best haters can come up with is that while resting on the water there is a big crease behind the leading edge, it's going to be a nice kite. Are you insane? It's resting on the water which is akin to someone holding and twisting the kite. I've ordered the 9m and 11m and I can't wait. Even better I got two kites for less money then one (insert your favorite C-kite here).

Yes and thank god they are not one-pump. Never again will I have to set aside an entire morning to finding a fixing a hole in a bladder.

Won't the black fade in the washing machine? Guess you just have to wash it with your other black kites.....

Hahah that is exactly what Drinky would have said. He really does swear by those kites too.

Drinky, I'm gonna steal either one of yours or Sams in a few weeks to try em!

By the sound of that long winded tirade this kite should be called the "macho".
All standard for best.
