Hey man I respect you a lot. I have to say you contribute and you answered many question about Naish products. But don't accuse other of "pimping" cause it feels like you do the same.
I still have to read one post where you do NOT like a Naish product and where a new model kite is WORSE than last year model. For Naish at least.....
So let's be fair.
Well, that is true. I use the term pimping with caution as some will call anything they disagree with pimping, and some will barely call anything pimping. Actually I think pimping is a funny exression.
I do like a lot of products. Most of the ones I try is from Naish. I do write about other things too. I barely ever write anything negative about anything. There are two reasons for it. First of all I really do like a lot of different things, and just because I feel one thing is not something I will do a lot of, the quality is usually there. I also know that someone will disagree with me because it fits their style.
For instance I have for years said that the torch is not for me..(which I kind of have changed my mind on this year). It doesn't mean it is a bad kite, it just means for the riding style and conditions (and my messed up back) I have it wasn't what I was looking for then.
I also do not write anything bad about the Evo or the Bandit or the Takoon I owned...even if I sold those kites pretty fast. The reason is that unless they are badly made...or unsafe they aren't necessarily bad products. I am in kiteboarding to get away from negativity, and I really try to keep it positive. My focus is what the gear is good at. I also think I am pretty active in general as I learn a lot from this forum
What is important here thought is that I will not give unsolicited information. Ie. if someone asks about the what kite to buy switchblade or bandit, I will not say buy the Park...it is the best kite ever made, even if I really think so.
