fat blokes can fly wrote:I think the Rockstar character he's great!

I mean what company other than Best could think up such a great profile. A negative anti-Best forum poster that nobody knows and posts the most ridiculous accusations. And when he does post over the months more and more posters tell him to wind his kneck in!

It is such a strong business tool utilising the rockstar "good cop bad cop" routine.

Genius! :thumb:
Whatever.

I know that you are chewing up inside!

Yeh but, no but, Whatever.....minger!

p.s Rocky out on the 14m waroo today, it was ace!!! Best have delivered exactly what they promised, A bow style that can be trimmed to feel like a "C". And it really does.
Oh yes and no inversions....haha

But then again you already know that don't you? :bye:

No,I heard that Waroos invert.

Why on Earth would anyone want a Bow kite that flew like a "C" kite ?

I would want a Bow to fly like a Bow ,not an old fashioned "C" kite.

Dimwit!

Hey come on less of the dimwit stuff! And just for your benefit rocky I tried my hardest to make the waroo invert and it would not!! BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT DON'T YOU! You've also just discredited yourself by saying "I heard" when in previous posts you put "I saw". hahah LOL
What I'm saying is that if you wish to trim the Waroo to feel like a "C" shape kite you can do, you really can!
YOU REALLY DO HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! One day you may want to ride waves and not get ripped off your rail, or just trim it so you can boost off flat water!

The waroo really does open up different riding styles & conditions and with the wind range and ability to handle gusts whilst remaining super stable means I can get out when I would not usually bother.

To pay for this I will be selling a kite and putting some cash towards but to me its like buying 2 kites. I am a very cautious consumer no matter what I am buying whethter it be a washing machine (my recent choice was an AEG) car, or kite I always want the best quality,performance price ratio. The kite ticks all the right boxes.
Ultimately the waroo gets me on the water more often..

Four years ago today, Best sold it's first kite... A lot has changed since then as we now sell more kites than any other brand and we sell to more retailers than any other brand. Happy Birthday Best!

Wow! In just 4 short years, you went from washing windshields under freeway overpasses, and hawking second hand paper towels to being a rich, famous kitier (think it's a French word) surrounded by beautiful Best babes and kiting as much as you want!

Good job! Keep it up.

In another year or two you can sell it to Microsoft or Oracle and retire!

Wait..... don't do that.... they'll just screw it up or shut it down....

Hang in there for another 20 years and retire when I'm closer to retirement m'self.... :dance:
