Also if you are going to design a new sport, sell the licence to a bunch of manufacturers to do with as they please in return for the money they just gave you, it’s a bit much to then sit there and point the finger of blame for high costs at the people that paid you.

Blaming thier distribution models when they are an already established network is frankly taking the piss.

If you didn’t like how they distribute and the costs associated with it then dont sell them the licence.

Saying you are working with two brands on the HP product, I hope to Hell they are factory direct or you are as complicit in the high costs as the brands you complain about.

Am I complaining about their distribution model ? (you are a distributor or shop owner, right, to feel that concerned ?)
I just listed some ways of decreasing equipment price.
I owned 2 brands using the same model... That doesn't mean that we shouldn't try to adapt to new conditions (technological, economical, market evolution...)

We have heard of “standing on the shoulders of giants,”
But what is this, “pissing on the shoulders of giants?”
Thanks to bruno you are not now reading “onlne golf forum” or “slow boring sailboats forum”
Taking the piss indeed, james.

Not anymore, I used to work In distribution but got out maybe 6 years ago?

Saying you are not complaining about distribution models and then suggesting ways of removing the veryvthing that distributors add in the name of saving money is false in my opinion.

While I applaud the effort in developing new tech to make kites more affordable putting that back through the standard distribution model will still lead to higher costs than you had planned/hoped.

Am I grateful that Bruno invented kiting as we know it? Yes I am? Very!

Does it mean I have to blindly agree with everything he says? No.

A forum is made to everyone express her/his opinion.
I repeat that I made a list of known ways to reduce the consumer cost, without expressing any judgement about their value. Sorry if it wasn't clear in my post.
BEST and others removed the middlemen in the past. Good for the market ? Good for themselves ? I don't know. I said that I'm personnally working on one of these ways : cheaper manufacturing technologies.
