Hope you bring back the Cabo. That is the best kite I’ve ever used.

Same for me: love my Cabos. Have no interest in the TS or Rocas. It seems that Best stopped marketing the Cabo after 2015 - I haven't seen any for sale new or used & haven't seen any on the water.

I dont like to hit a company when it's trying to recover, but I logged onto Best's website this evening to see what they have to offer. Norton Antivirus keeps shooting of alerts that the Best Kiteboarding website has a malicious virus embedded in a the javascript code called Formjacking Website 2. Basically, when you input your payment info, a copy gets sent to a hacker to steel your credit card information.

So unfortunately, I like their seat harness and footpads, I'll stay away until they can fix some of their remaining issues.

Time to update the copyright on the bottom of the website too, from 2018 to 2019.

Since Best is not bankrupt, this topic gets closed to not harm their business with false rumors.

You are welcome to start any new topic regarding best products etc.
