i really thought about buying a waroo ONCE but this post finally and
definitely convinced me to NEVER EVER buy a b-e-s-t-p-i-m-p-e-d kite or
board or whatever... name it flying p*nis or even flying p. pro...

i just cannot cope with the thought that idiots (pardon my
outdated language here but that`s all i got really...) like
gumball earn $$$ like that...

doesn't that *#=* stand for this/his "company"?

if so, that's it with "best" for me....

oh my god, what a stupid, stupid post... in fact: the most stupid
ever........ jesus.... :roll:

B-Y-E best......
from now on, i will try my best (ha!) and avoid best-pimpd-posts...

NOW THATS SOME CRAZY SH!T! :o Some tasty looking stuff from slinger! The new bow looks nothing like the waroo, its got style, developement and innovation, something best lacks in abundance.

Best have the worst image in the world of kitesurfing. They are arrogant and have no modesty whatsoever.... I'd never recommend them to any kiter....they have some f%$kin' nerve....

That first post was pretty bad. I was also considering buying a waroo for high winds but am now looking at the new boxer sle. Best seems to want to take everyone else out of the kiteboarding business, which is pretty lame!
I am not mad at you best ... just disapointed. I am sorry to say that I will probably not be a Best customer in the future unless their is change.

Have a nice day,

sorry to disappoint you Slim, but I thought that was supposed to be the new Fuel and not a bow. Dax, do you know? Is it a C-kite or bow?

Looks totally cool & wacky- I wanna try one! :yumyum:

you could post amount of pictures of regular c kites and they could look the same. till examine them up close

Actually if you take a closer look you will realize there are 9.

9 Struts and 2 Cambattens, looks like they are trying to solve the fluttering issue.

Just admit it. It does look like a Waroo. People get there inspiration from all over. At least they didn't copy the kite exactly. You expect them to take it at least one step further and solve the fluttering issue.

I'd be disapointed it they didn't.

I like it.

That Gumball, she's such a hoot.

Ever since he moved in with Fo at the sanitorium, and that do it yourself sex change operation went so badly wrong. He's not been firing on all cylinders.

Of course its totally modelled on a Waroo, we'd just love mid loop inverts and planned obsolesence within the month.

But sadly not, its got a list of features too long to go into right now, and we haven't ridden it yet its raining and no-one wants to get wet.

Did anyone try out Gumballs new "kit"

Slicing your penis down the middle and re-inserting it inside out was way radical... Brave Girl.
