They lost their kite designers, outsourced design jobs. Fucked up kite pricing (high asking price and selling kites all the time in sale). Now this.
RIP old good switch kites? ;<

That's my guess too. Wish him all the best :thumb:

I wonder if Switch will attract a new ambassador.

The prices that you actually pay are still very good btw. It's the new sales model that's a bit sketchy, with an all year round mega sale so it seems.

I'm surprised another company hadn't lured him away sooner. Probably contract obligations.
He's a really good rider, big on style and power.

If it is new North, they'll have a very talented stable of riders.

Why would North want yet another big air specialist? Already have Nick and Jesse. Sounds like the kind of overloading Best did.

I thought he is more a wakestyle guy? Likeable dude and it is all over social media that he joined North. Will be interesting to see what he'll do over there, many nice trips to incredible locations are probably guaranteed.

He does big air and freestyle.

Why add him too? Great rider and a great rep for NZ...and also Australia I reckon.

The riders they pick I would also pick to make a buzz...awesome riders who can also represent a brand...
