I'd expect nothing but a professional experience with Mr Aguera.

I'd love one of his foils but I cannot justify the expense, especially with shipping to the UK.

FYI If you make it your personal mission to ruin him via multiple user accounts slandering him all over the internet in efforts to sink his livelihood, he might get a little prickly and not want to sell you one!

REASURINGLY EXPESIVE???? Like your not in the business. Somehow I doubt Mr Mango is the first person to ever want to throttle you!

Now that he is CLEARLY intending to deliver all the goods instead of escaping to live like a super villain on some carabean island with a few thousand scammed bucks. You are free to Shut your hole and fade quietly into oblivion.

At least Tone, the first and only poster on here to give you any traction has had the courtesy to others to back-pedal the rhetoric.

Well put Starsky!

Now please just give Carafino a break and let him focus on his work instead of spending time and worry defending himself from internet moorons :nono:

I´m quite sure he is doing the most he can to have us all flying soon, some posters in here has for sure helped pushing the timeline in the wrong direction.

We just got confirmed that our stuff is shipping and we have the tracking contact etc. I can´t wait to ride that thing :-)

Thanks for all your effort and the personal status updates Carafino!

As I have originally stated, I never wanted anyone to NOT get their gear. I appreciate that it's looking like Carafino has come good on his deal and I look forward to seeing vids of people on their carafino boards and foils.

Carafino has a very strange way to run a business, one that I don't appreciate but I do appreciate it must have been a massive undertaking to produce so many boards and foils. It's great to see the deal working out and people getting their kit.

Now as long as he can continue to fix his reputation, we can hope to see a brand which is strong and reliable.

Not you man, sorry, used your quote for context. Had hoped it read as directed @ wind_tard.

That Aguera is a total legend, and I don't doubt a gentleman in every sense was part of my point.
