Just quit it. I post here very rarely, but when I do, it's under my real name and I wouldn't use my real name if I were purposely lying. And that's my final post about this matter.

Yes they are - a company that is constantly trying to be innovative, and is. They should never (and never will) apologize for being innovative. I'm talking about products, not marketing. Help? All kite companies need help - shoot, all retailers need help too. They are entering into their 3rd year with lots of experience, new blood and more cash. Many companies stay stuck in a rut - these guys will always pull through.

Thanks for all the info, but how does it affect me DIRECTLY?
I mean, after all it is all about me
( in a group sort of way)


so

tell me(us)

I (we) only care about the main course items on the plate
gear
price
support

eggs is eggs , no matter how fancy the title
or how great the chef
the rest is like parsley
someone thinks it looks great and adds something,
but no one eats it

Any plain ol flat bottom or single concave board simply doesn't
measure up.

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


I'm glad someone else brought this up.
I’ve had more than ample amount of time & numerous opportunities to ride a couple of them now from owners who hired me to improve on 'spartan' finish & graphics and while they hook up very, very, very well, they imo, took more than a fair amount of power to keep them going.

Yet when I read the latest Hein hype, there’s the claim that they are not only faster but accelerate quicker than the average board due to their reduced drag etc.etc. etc.

My question is is this a new feature of only the side cut single to double concave b/c I haven’t seen this on the single or he side-cut single concaves.

BTW I completely agree with chemosavi, Hein, If you Hijack others peoples posts for your self serving shameless promotions, you should expect to get flamed. Support the cause and buy a banner add.

I believe the pop culture phase for this is “show respect and you'll get respect" ;-)

cheers

Ahem,,,

Please, just try to relax stacey, it's a big step forward anyway you slice it;
alex is better placed writing checks and slaming hogies in the shade of his little grass shack,,,

Hey,,,,I bet we'd all rather be doing that instead of having to answer a lot of embarrassing questions,,,eh??

On the use of your "real" name:

That, as far as I know has never increased the quality of any post...
a rose by any other...as it were, so is it still.

See how useless it all is?

Anyway,, be sure
and give g-ball a coaster when he visits,,,,the rural influence is well,,, a rural influence.

(smile)

Just think you can communicate in full sentences now around the office, it ain't a bad thing

Now relax,,,or you'll get pimples

Kind regards & Crongrats

One of the key successes in BEST marketing is to create a lot of comment from ravers, ranters and critics.
It draws in more and more interest from those who had not heard much of BEST in the first place. Seems to work a treat too.
Good or bad comments do not affect the outcome.
The profile is continuously raised. So are the sales.

a rant is a bit like an ad than runs...
blah blah BEST blah blah BEST
http://www.bestkiteboarding.com

bit like saying

don't visit http://www.anabatic.co.nz
as it is based in NZ.

Or don't buy HEIN boards!

your just going to remember the name but not all the details eh.

all the
BEST.

You're full of shit. That would be great if companies coud just fuck it up, get a lot of people to talk about it and be successful for it. There is a difference between Famous and Infamous...

From the old marketing text book (and I'm sure the new CEO of BEST has read it in Harvard) the rule of thumb is that good experiences get told to others around 8 times, bad experiences 25. Unfortunately this higher multiplier can only rarely be used to the companies advantage.

I hope your boss is aware of your marketing skills. Make sure you write that on your cover letter so you make the right impression.
