One of our graphics guys made a mistake and no one, myself included, caught it. Apologies to Ozone, they make nice foils for snow.

For our screw up, you can now buy 1 kite and get another kite FREE! While supplies last!

Ok guys calm down. Maybe a pic is fake, but what is not fake is what you are able to do with thoughs kites for the price you pay.
Bad mouthing a company sucks man.
And believe me im not even a best user...(cabrinha rules!)
Look at the reviews from best users they are happy, thats what matters.

While i find photoshopping one's kites into an old action photo highly weak, whats way more interesting to me is the upping of the ante: "sorry for the fake advertising, for an apology have a free kite."

buy one get one free!!! Someone please try to do this ("while supplies last"!) and report back to the forum if the offer holds water (err, air).

haha, for SOME reason i'm skeptical.

what matters is the rights.

Hey.

It seems that a lot of people are completely missing tha point. Most pictures that we see today has been modified or "photoshopped" somewhat.

The whole point is who owns the pictures? If Best owns the rights to the pictures they have done nothing wrong. If they, on the other hand, have found some random pictures and edited them.... The point here is does a kite company steal someone elses pictures.

I really have no idea who owns the rights for the pictures.
