Who Are the Primary Kite Brand Reps On This Forum?

Postby Krazedkiter » Sun Jul 07, 2013 7:18 am

I think its important to know who is represented here. Nothing to do, in this case, with knowing if someone is pimping the brand incognito. If you're in a pinch, need some serious help or advise, or need to clarify something with your product in a snap, who are the reps? Lets keep the shop owners/dealers out of this for now because sometimes you really really need an expert from the company itself.

Epic has Dimitri. Best has Simon. I think I have heard of a Dan from North. We used to have a Shymac (sp?) from Slingshot. But what about all the other brands. I think it is so important to have a designated brand rep from each company on these primary forums like KF. I think those that don't are really leaving a big gap in the communication that we all desperately need with each brand. So, show yourselves. And if your not here, your presence is greatly needed.

Am I missing a list somewhere?

Its a really good question and it would be excellent to have a rep from every brand on here. But you have to look at the amount of S*it that Epic and Dimitri has to put up with on a near daily basis. Why would anyone want or need to bother with that if you have a direct link on your website?

I have asked this very same question when I first joined the forum :thumb:

Last year I was at a demo day and there was a brand rep there, who I asked did he use the forums. His answer was " he monitors them just to see whats going on but would never join them as there are to many people out there that think Trolling is fun and you can not win and argument with someone like that.

Also I think the world of Kitesurfing is still very small and so any bad blood between companies shows itself on here.

Well Epic do 99% of the brand posts on this forum so its pretty irrelevant who the others are - even if it isn't about Epic they will reply :thumb:

The ones that pop to my head:

1. Dan at North
2. yoav_at_Blade
3. Dimitri M(epic)
4. yaron Blade
5. jaystore
6. XenonUSA

I think that any brand with a rep here is a good honest brand that is trying to help the customers and to better understand the wishes and desires of the kiting community. They are not afraid to stand up for their product because they believe in it.

Having reps on the forum is a good thing.

But a rep should concentrate on info and help, and not get into discussion or answer silly questions. Some postings should be ignored and then all will be fine.

Bill Hansen (Hansen aerosports) designs for switch.
He's been building kites for a long time and writes some of the most intelligent stuff on the forum.
