Hey, hey, hey - John Z from Ocean Rodeo here. Partner in the business and long time contributor...

Always happy to answer questions on this forum and I do make an effort to monitor the threads but occasionally fall behind. When I'm here I really enjoy the opportunity to engage directly with customers, especially with regards to innovations we are working on or have just released.

Cheers! JZ

Hey John - Sorry I didn't mention you guys. I met you out in the parking lot on the Saturday morning before your Kitty Hawk demo week. I was loading up my car for the drive home. We talked about the "Storm" kite I'm thinking about getting and my love of the Soul drysuit and Mako King. Everytime I've called you guys for help or advice your crew has helped out :thumb:

Hi,

for me it is always a pleasure to help or to give some more info about our Spleene products or our brand. I am already registered since 2005, some 3 years later after I have invented the Door shape and I have met Toby many times personally, but it is really hard to read all the forums, facebook, E-Mails etc. So please do not be angry with me if it sometimes could take a while to get a response from me, since we are very often out of office to test new gear. I will do my best to support you as best as I can.

If you have question you can also send an E-Mail: contact@spleene-kiteboarding.com

Thanks

Ciao

Rainer Kauper

Heyo!

Although it's hard to estimate the number of kiteboarders actively engaging and/or "reading-up" on Kiteforum.com, this platform is critical for us to see what the needs are of the kiteboarding community. We believe that the people who are engaging in kiteforum.com are the "early adaptors" in the sport and are therefore the ones whose feedback is super important to measure the success (or failure) of Blade Kiteboarding.

Although I'm personally not on here as much as I'd like to be, many of the people affiliated closely with Blade are active users and participate regularly in this forum.

Thank you for taking part in defining this sport and pushing us to bringing you the best products available.

Hope everyone had a great week!
Yoav

That's great to see all of you guys on the KITEFORUM representing the company you work for in order to help customers out.
Now let's see more kite companie owners get on the KITEFORUM and help their customers the way it should be, by doing all the R&D on the products, respond to (90 to 200) emails a day, deal with different factories, work on the orders, and some times deal with warranty issues, help people on the forums and not just this one, work on videos and photo shoots, and the list goes on..... Plus get time to kite and spend time with the wife and kids. Now that's a hard job. I might have to hire five Dimitri M.
