The old crew rocked mate.
Shannon, Jeff, Jeff, Alex & Peter made a formidable team.
As for Alex, I had the odd phone call at like 2am with him raving about some new kite Peter had just finished. That pump and drive for the sport and his disruptive marketing were sensational.
Even if he had no grasp of international timezones.
BEST have come a long long way since the early days of Yargas + Nemesis and burnouts in the company car park for sure.
It's now a high end brand with a very polished corporate image. I am a bit surprised that BEST (the company) have not contacted their dealers or made any public statement about Shannon leaving. Probably still sorting out his final pay
But as one of the 3 wise men who founded the company leaves, I'd expect more transparency.
Maybe there is a really good back story.
And lets face it, what we don't know... we just make up
Forums are great places for that.
SQ must be chomping at the keyboard waiting for the word to have his official say.........
