Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Do you guys realize no matter what if the OP had an agenda or he was just honestly complaining, the damage that all this ridiculous discussion, calling names and blaming game is causing to Core image is waaaay worse than his initial complain? If he actually had a plan to "hurt" Core, damn he was re...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

It is not just COREporate kites that does this. Pretty much every corporate kiteboarding company has this attitude. Same for distributors, and retailers. There may be a facade of "caring" and "supporting the sport and rider" to sucker money out of people like you (and me), but the bottom line is wh...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Graeme F is.....well he is Graeme F - known for being less than courteous to other posters, a COREporate hack, and doubling down without any hint of an apology every single time . Really, what's this then? If at some time or other my dubious wit has been misinterpreted, then accept my apology, And ...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

2 years ago I was really into kiteboarding, they had the XR4 kites, I asked about their ambassador program. I talked to Brett on the phone, I was using Switchblades back then. He mentioned that first I need to buy XR4s full price (sneaky salesman tactics, he even sent me an invoice right away), the...

Re: lightwind surfboard

Both flat rocker and volumme works for low wind. Thats why skims work, they may not hace such a big surface but are flat. Similar to what happens with the shinnster, It is not super big but flat and also works great in light wind having really low volumme (twintip construction) I checked yesterday ...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

“Building”your own lines? 😂😂You weave them your self do you? What from angels hair and fairy wings? Linesets, actually. I make them out of Jerry Brown 800lb Dyneema. Fortunately, it is already braided and ready to be spliced. I do have to "un-braid" some of the Jerry brown for use as serving on my ...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Welcome to the world of Coreporate kiteboarding! You have lots more fun ahead of you. Then later, you start building your own stuff such as linesets, replacement bridal links, and sometimes even plastic parts. The 3 stages of kite issues - denial, anger, acceptance.

I have tried different boards, not only surfboards but also skims. Recomend you to try a skim, is a complete different feeling and rea...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

That is a perfect example of The Pot Calling The Kettle Black ! Look below, you have scattered extraneous and incorrectly placed commas through your post like confetti floating in the air after a mass wedding. :lol: And wait! Your reference to "scattered extraneous and incorrectly placed commas thr...
