you take a (supposedly) sincere email from a potential customer, write an insincere reply, then post it with your taking the piss reply on a forum.

Do you get paid for this shit?

i was taking the piss...... not agreeing with the guy...


it was genuinely only my intent to share something that i thought was truely funny, when i showed it to the guys in the office we were just pissing ourselves...


You've got one truly f'ed up marketing plan. I don't personally have any objection to the sexual content of your advertising. But I certainly would respect the views of someone who might find it distasteful. You could have sincerely and nicely responded to his private comments to you. No need to change anything, but at least show some respect for the customer feedback rather than sending a reply laced with sarcasm. Instead, you laugh at his (or her) own views - and then post that here? You guys are really out of touch.

I have to comment again on this and back up GWTW

First, I have nothing agains Best product and the people I have met from Best have been good guys (Gavin, Shannon, Alex and Clinton).

So treat this as constructive criticism.

This post drives me nuts.

It's so stupid.

Perhaps what makes me the most mad is that I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the email was made up and just posted to get more threads going about Best and drive more traffic to the site. And I guess I fell for it

Regardless it is incredibly unprofessional of SQ and reflects badly on the whole company

I have decided to send back all my gear to Best, my new sandels from Reef are also getting returned along with my Jimmy Lewis board. I'm never coming to Florida again because of the girls in bikinis and I'm making my girlfriend wear as much clothing as possible to the beach or we're moving to Alaska.


hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!



NOT!!!!!!!!!


What the f*** is this world coming to? Kiteboarding is turning into a bunch of panzies. I have never in my life heard of such s***.

Thanks for the post SQ, it has definately made my day. Tomorrow i'm going snow kiteing so I can forget. BEST is #1. The only company with balls, and if anything were to change, I might just have to kill myself.

come on the guys a kook, there's probably a room full of them sat in the back of some church somewhere looking at sports vids on the internet, and then penning letters to them threatening to bring the world to it's knees...

sq i think it's pretty odd that you did not state you're opinion on this mail in the first place... you seemed to be pretty serious about it in the beginning! :think:

It is funny.

But that doesnt change the fact that

Im sure Simon is very proud of his clever response but posting it, bad idea.

Should have been kept as an inter-office joke.


PS. I am indifferent to seeing the girls in the video I am interested in the kite. Chicks in videos is Best's style and if you dont like it don't buy from them.....easy...
PSS. Nice job on the finished video.
