Alex, what's with all the antagonization? Yes, the Waroo is a great kite, and it is (sadly) true that SS didn't make the best bow on the market for 06'. No need for low blows though. You should know better than that. Stick to making kites please & let your low prices & good kites speak for themselves. I honestly think you owe SS an apology. As a company owner you have a vested interest in making kiting appealing to everyone. Name calling & finger pointing is not in the ineterest of creating good vibes in the kiting community.

I can't understand why Best bashers keep dredging up the Hellfish.
Yes, the kite was one of the most disastrous products released in
kiting history - but the way Best Kiteboarding handled it was a shining
example of customer service that no other company has even come
close to acheiving.

Do you ever hear ex Hellfish owners complaining?

I'm not a Best owner yet but I definitely wouldn't be put off buying a
Waroo because of the Hellfish affair. If anything I'd be reassured that I
have nothing to loose by trying one.

One of our guys bought a Turbo Diesel and had numerous inversions. He's not a great kiter but he's certainly experienced and gets around fine on his old kites and has a nic time on his TD when it's not inside out.

I thought this was about the pot calling the kettle black..? not about SS TD being bad...
Anywayz, I've been on fuel for ...what five years now and this year I bought and extra kite; SS TD 12.. I'm about 70kgs, flying the kite from 9 to 20 kts, when I'm going out on my strapless board (fish). It's THE best answer for going strapless I think and also if you want long jumps... Inversions??? yeah when I first bought him, two times... later I knew to what point I could depower and since??... never again..
To my opinion a bow only inverts due to the rider!! You have to know to where you can depower the kite and offcourse don't let him fly over you..!
I've tested the best kites and must say, no offense but; compairing it to cars; best = skoda :lol:
with skoda you can also drive, but after a year you'll be bringing it in because the doors are falling off... :))

yeh that must be because at the skoda factory, which is owned by volkswagen audi group, they must put the doors on the cars differently when its a skoda.

why can't you best-posses not just admit that the quality of ss is much better and marketing aswell? you don't hear ss going on against north, or north going on against cabrinha or some...
if best should lay low a while, and not do stupid marketing tricks, they would be more appriciated by other people...
right now y'all are just a bunch 'a big mouths :bye:

Funny thing is SQ and Gumball used to go on for days before the Waroo came out that it would never invert!

The first flat kite to invert in our area funny enough was a Waroo.

And in this case it wasn't even on the water but a fall from the sky from overhead on land invert! :o
