Hey SQ. Riddle me this.....

Postby surf-turkey » Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:17 am

The post about how Best came to be, having zero mention of how Shannon got involved or his role, got me curious. Maybe you can fill in the missing parts? The guys name was used for the company. That's kinda a big deal. So what's the story? Enquiring minds want to know....

I'm all ears for this one..

I think SQ's busy I heard the R&D departments photocopier jammed where they tried to ram a Fuel through it and SQ's trying to explain how they managed to remove a perfectly good competition winning kitesurfing team from the podium after paying so much money for it...

In fact I wonder if it was SQ's idea.

Do you think he's having his arse kicked for that as well.

I'm really not interested in this turning into a best bashing post. I am genuinely interested in the back story of it all and hope that SQ will offer it up. Let's try to keep that the focus. Thanks
