Possible Scammer - be cautious

Postby Mossy 757 » Tue Jun 27, 2017 11:21 pm

I was cruising a few adds on the marketplace and noticed a guy offering to sell a "kiteboard" except when I asked him to show me pictures, it didn't have a strut, fuselage, wing or stab; it just looked like a flat wake board with slip-in bindings with an inflatable handle in between.

LMAO, he thinks someone's going to believe that's a kiteboard?! SMH :lol: :rollgrin:

I'm confused with what you are saying...kiteboard would mean a twin tip likely, which is what you described in the picture.

cwood, I think Mossy is a hydrofoiler trolling for twintip riders to bite. :roll: Wind must be too light even for the foils today.

Hey, at least it wasn't a thread about all the calamitous ram-air disasters so far this year :roll:
