I think it is great when companies step in if someone has questions not everyone can answer.
Too much pimping isn't good, but helping with useful info is gold.

Whoever it was they did a good job of informing without overly pimping their stuff if that makes sense. Not an easy line to walk.
Come to think of it, I do recall someone at a demo getting told by an OR rep/rider that OR "did not have a kite to fit" that kiters desires. Pretty much the opposite of what you would generally expect out of COREporate kiteboarding. Pretty dammed honest.....or beyond any honesty I have ever heard of in that situation. Crap! Now I am pimpin a brand I don't even use and I am thinking OR is just Ninja like SNEAKY with their PR. :D

P.S. iriejohn, That was satire at the end of my post. But I will take a bit of honesty where I can get it in COREporate kiteboarding.....Wait, now I am back to square one with pimpin again. "Oh, what a tangled web we weave" around my legs on a self rescue.

Half the people here ride Ocean Rodeo so they are doing pretty good in some markets!
