C+S... Is this really true... that's pretty fraudulent behavior
LOL...Let me just say that I've spent more time kiting than Bill Hansen...There are some pretty desperate comments here...we will let our NEW kites do the talking...thanks...
The fradulent behavior being mentioned is misrepresenting yourself in various postings and as a business, not kiteboarding ability or relative TOW. To set the record straight, I was regularly kiteboarding in Sri Lanka with the kite in the attached pics before you or Boarding Bob had any association with Windwing. There are plenty of witnesses to substantiate it. The reality is, you kept me pretty busy designing foil kites, inflatable kites, Wipika kites, custom kites for Lou Wainman and Flash Austin and a complete range of windsurfing sails including top level professional Formula racing sails for Devon Boulon and others to the point I didn't have enough time to be a 'regular' at the sand bar, east point or any other popular windsurfing or kiting beach. I logged over 20 trips to China in this 4-year effort which also took incredible energy and time. If you feel the need to denigrate me as a kiteboarder to defend your position or legitimize my absence from Windwing, my guess is it is not a good approach in the eye of the consumer. After all, I am a designer with a strong technical post-graduate education and over 25 years of direct and related experience, not a pro-rider. I don't pretend to be or need to be an expert rider to understand physics and aerodynamics. And, you know that I can proficiently fly kites and airplanes - plenty of them and all types. On a positive note, I'm looking forward to seeing your new kites and bars and finding what progress you have made since I completed their development last November. Again, for the record, that would be before your supplier difficulties when you uncermoniously let go of the few remaining 'bad apples' who stood by and supported you to the end.
