Carafino Update May 28

Postby C A R A F I N O 2014 » Wed May 28, 2014 6:03 pm

HELLO FRIENDS ( & FOES ) :-)

I will be arriving Southern California to distribute foils to customers waiting. Lord knows you all have been waiting along time. Those customers in Southern California I will personally meet to present the foils to you.

I will do my best to get up to Sherman and meet Lodewijk and try my hand at some chilling Sherman Island kiting.

There have been some customers who have canceled their orders due to the long wait. I will have some stock for cash and carry sales. Carafino will finalize a dealership agreement in Florida so this will be helpful for having some stock that can go out to the US without having to wait so long and deal with me coming to the USA to handle import and redistribution.

Here are a few pics of the work we have been pumping out. I will post pics of foils in the next days from the foil factory. We have cut a second mold for the Triumphant Arch T bar to make up for the lost time and to increase our production capacity.

Shipping cost to customer on boards and foils are and will be greatly reduced to compensate for the delay. I am really sorry we have been so late and I will present photos of foils and customers with new foils as I arrive in S. California.

A couple extra kilos, hmmm, have you looked inside?
Maybe there is a foil hidden in there somewhere?

I for one will order next years model as well- it would increase the value if Mr Mango could sign each board?


That was the funniest part :lol:

@Carafino.. Maybe its just me but did you just write that you have sent the foils these aussie guys have paid for to someone else in Canada.. That sounds to me like you have sold the same product twice which would be bordering on fraud in many Countries..

Hilarious.. :lol:

Toby please, do not ban Mr. Carafino from the forum yet, he might be a very poor foil producer and business manager, but you will never have such a creative and entertaining forum content provider :thumb:

Jokes apart, for me the most instructing part is where he reveals himself that he is "paying" people for being supportive in the forum by promising to deliver them the foils first. These already scammed then corrupted folks then accuse here others, who try to warn naive potential carafino customers that they may face problems if they order, for not being objective...
