No. Kitescarecrow is another Ian (and he pronounces it Yan :) ) and the last we heard of him he and his family were heading out of South Texas to north of Dallas to escape from Rita, so I hope he's okay and didn't have too much damage.

Does this mean my old (1 yr.) Hein board I seldom use because there isn't enough wind simply doesn't measure up?

Never mind, it works great for me.

Fo you can use mine when I get down your way.
Just got a better idea....why don't we meet up in Lakeview (thanx boy, fer kerrectin me, yer on yer toes, that's a good sign), Oregon. I know this Mormon teenager who's in need of some serious counciling whose daddy owns a lake we can park our mobilettes on while we kite away and shoot helpless critters when the wind's down.

If surf companies are the model then Best is bust already. No 12yr old kid living in a ghetto or Indiana wants to dress like a kitesurfer. Do any of them dress like waterskiers? That sport has been around 10x longer than KS.

Naish & North must have the chuckles, not the shakes.

Hein: Rent banner space. It's not all that expensive and this sort of stuff makes you look rude - detracting from the probable quality of your work.

now isn't this thing something that happens when one of the backend investors / venture capitalists is NOT happy with the development of things?

I have no idea how the ownership in Best is structured, but I expect that there are more people involved than the three visible ones...but then again I really do not know.

You guys, dont believe Best's anti-propaganda. Best was filing for bankruptcy when Ian Huschle offered to take over. Stop lying Best and crew, the truth is out now.
