Arcsule - you might be right but would you admit that people like you caused this bad
situation for the "world of foilboarding", wouldn't you?
Your blind belief and enthusiasm convinced some riders who ended up like you in unenviable situation. You were pouring oil on Carafino's fire. Without your commitment some of them would not wait for the "revolutionary" offer and would be riding by now on "ordinary" foils from other companies. Please don't blame anybody except yourself and think twiece before posting such comments.
Wonder how many of KF users (to be newbie) decided to wait with their firstbuy?
I heard about planned 45 boards ish to be ordered from mango by Poles (this is from Polish foil forum). All of them minus one (me) would be riders who've never ridden a foil.
I came back from Thailand where I go with a friend. He is really greatfull to me for convincing him not to buy a pig in a poke. He decided to pay more, get a brand new foil from a stock in a week and finally learned foiling.
The Carafino's offer supposed to trigger the foil boom among newbies or even racing pros who wanted to become champs. What did it trigger instead? So far disappointment, frustration, wasted precious time. I hope they are not going to be called "a Carafino's lost generation".
I see two safe exits from this situation:
a. it was not a scam,
b. forget about it buy anything else and join the happy people club.
