PEOPLE POWER! NEW KITEBOARDS @ BELOW US$150

Postby ==II== » Sun Nov 13, 2005 5:29 pm

Hi all Kiters!

I am new to Kitesurfing but very experience in business and manufacturing. I am appalled by the ridiculous price of kiteboards in the market; US$400-$800 for a kiteboard is daylight robbery!

I need all of your help to bring justice to kiteboard prices! I am now going to do us all a favor by sourcing a carbon fibre glass manufacturer in China to make kiteboards. I will make 2 types of twin tips boards, one a beginners board (141x41 cm) and one for season riders (120x37cm). The rough specs for both boards is both will have ABS sidewalls, divinycell core, 2 glass and 1 carbon layer top and bottom, plus inserts for 4/6 fins, foot straps and handles.

To help us all, just need to reply to this post and I will see how many members in this forum is interested. By replying I will not hold anyone in ransom as I just need to give myself the confidence to place a large order from my manufacturer; also only with volume will the price come down, the more orders and the price will come down, I will negotiate with the manufacturer. Let me know if you guys want fins, handles and footpads and straps, if the numbers is large I will also get a manufacture to supply them!

This is not a scam or to cheat anyone, you do not have to send me any money or register with me, just reply this post. To help me and you if you want to see this happen, let all your friends know of this and let them show me the number of interested parties, remember more orders means lower prices!

Once the figure reach the minimum pieces required, I will order the manufacturer to make it. I will then set up a website and inform all of you, you can then visit the website and if you see what you like, then place a secure order thru the net, no obligations! I am willing to take the gamble and bear the losts if there is not enough orders.

If we are successful, all beginners will have a cheap board to learn and trash, and all season riders can have a tough cheap board as spare, no more paying royalties to the rest of the kiteboard manufacturers, and they will be force to drop their huge margin and profit! Give us value products! People Power will rule!

Great idea, I am definately interested. This sport needs disruptive market entrants to drive down the insanely high gross margins the incumbant manufactuers are making. I might be interested in distrbibuting up here in the northeast US. Drop me a line when they are available.

Impossible... we've already been over this.

The least you'll get a board for is around the 300-400 range.
