I don't think SS has any problems, they just do numbers. Simple.
And the riders take what they can get...in this sport is not much money, so it is smart to change.
They risk too much any way, and don't get an according payment.

I am sure Best and SS will both do fine.

And there are companies without any international tour teamrider, like Flysurfer and Core...and I am sure businesswise they do really fine!


maybe you have a point there! i don't choose kites from the riders who ride them, and i guess i am with the majority!

It is sad to see Len10 move away from slingshot... I kind of liked seeing him soar on those fuels :)

In any case I don't think there's a lot of people who buy kites based on team riders. Maybe the younger riders are influenced by certain pro's but I bet the majority of riders just want a kite that doesn't cost too much, works good and lasts a long time.

Wow! In case you Best h8ers haven't noticed, the brand you guys have been making fun of with every passing post is completely dominating the market and the attention of all in the kite industry and customer base. Reminds me of good old times with Best and the original Waroo, Nemesis and direct customer sales and low pricing.

Make us proud of you......just don't make us pay for the power plays..... :D

But looks like Best has to sell 2000 kites just to pay the team riders.
I hope it will work out for them. Always good when people push something!


well yeah!
230000 divided by 2000 is 115.

this is the proof that kite real cost is around 115 bucks. even if the numbers are two or three times wrong it is still impressively small number.

all the rest is for the "passion" and the middlemen

230k for 3 years rather sounds real.
