Take my advice and DO NOT buy a board from Carafino.

I have paid for 2 boards under this deal that they have refused to deliver. As soon as they had taken the money they stopped replying to e mail/phone calls/SMS or to provide a refund.

When I asked them about this website http://www.carafinouk.com/indexcara.html they became extremely abusive and actually started threatening me. Here are a selection of the replies I got.

IT IS A PRIVILEGE AND NOT A RIGHT TO OWN A CARAFINO HYDROFOIL.

In discussion about a fellow hydrofoiler he said.

YOU CAN TELL HIM CARAFINO TOLD YOU TO FUCK OFF. AND HE WILL TELL YOU CARAFINO IS NOT A FAMILY TO DISRESPECT.

When I requested a refund I got this

STOP TO EMAIL US RSOLE.

They then changed their minds and gave me this

OUR FAMILY AND I HAVE DECIDED THAT IF YOU WANT THE BOARD, COME TO BALI, WHERE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HAND IT TO YOU.

I was quite happy to go to Bali and collect the board as I was in asia anyway but when I agreed they made it clear I would be attacked if I went there.

He then started contacting people I know in the sailing world with this threat

"You want a pissing match, will give you and your company one. Two can play at your game old man.

F**k you,
Christopher Carafino"

The person he contacted gave me this account

I would like to clarify what I said when Carafino contacted me by phone earlier this week.

Having heard what they had to say, which I let go in one ear and out the other, I told them that you were one of the most respected and talented sailors in the UK and that we had no interest in being involved in any stoush that they may be undertaking. I also told them that it was my belief that our chief designer would not be interested in talking to them.


You have been warned!!!!!
