No Worries. As a Dutch citizen I am pretty aware this is an international forum. I can imagine it is not always as clear for native English spreakers. Must conclude it sometimes makes the messages a bit puzzling/harder to interpret.

Just found this information as well on a German website. Pureactionsports wasn't the company owning Best kiteboarding ? If it is the case, it looks like the company is definitely over and liquidated for now...
