I think you're Carafino. Or someone close to him.

crazy mofo

face to face? sure thing buddy.

I guess its possible.
But Keoni sounds more like Arcsrule did during his early dealings with Mango.
I'm sure he needed to defend his purchase decision in the hopes that mango would still come through....a slippery slope, indeed.

Just another casualty of mango's business model.

Unfortunatelly, You are right dude! I'm not feeling good too about previous messages. But, You know everybody had reasons to believe Mango.I'm sure he had too... If he was a brave and honest guy, He had to contact all customers and try to cooperate with us to solve the problems... Clean your mass Mango as a real Hawaiian, It makes you bigger...!



Anyway, I do not need to persuade anybody for anything.

I write down my intention as previous message.

I look for some help to make that boards useful.

Here what I'm thinking about the foil for these boards;

Aluminium T-bar around 90-100 cm high. (not sure about thickness and wide part length)

main wing is handmade or cnc g10 epoxy 580x115 10mm thickness.

rear wing is 440x80 and 8mm thickness.

I ride it by myself and try to develop a prototype.

I appreciate you for any help. Btw, maybe people can use that boards...

easy guys.

If it was Carafino he would say different things instead of having 6 boards and no foils!

As for me i was lucky to get a board and foil.. no hardware or straps of course, but that I could go down the street and buy.
The second foil arrived also, but no second board.
I called my cc'd company and filed a dispute for 25% of the amount because the board and foil are equally important to the function of the system, and I got 3 of 4 pieces.
They originally said they couldn't do anything with transactions older than 120 days but then we found the solution.
Since I had email correspondence with Mango until he went radio silent, they said it was reasonable I still expected delivery and that the delivery date since was far inside of 120 days, would work as a relevant date for the dispute.
Anyhow, they gave me back 25% of the transaction and sent him a letter that he had 45 days to complete the order to receive the money back. I was ok with that as my preference was to have a complete setup, but that never happened so i found a board from a fellow who got a board and no foil. Maybe that could help some of you who got ripped off.

really it's too bad he couldn't make the business work. The carbon construction he did is not easy, not cheap, and is extremely strong. The Moth sailors say they'd never break a foil if they built them that way.

And maybe he is Carafino trying to sell those boards under a different name?

His last words were : "Maybe people can use that boards"...

thanks ThistleSailorKC! Finally, There are some useful info.

ThistleSailorKC how about to send the dimensions of the foil and wings which is good fit for these boards?

Actually, It can be perfect if you draw it on solid works, if you know sb.?

check Keoni's profile. yesterday it was blank. I answered his pm and requested he complete his profile. he filled it up with carrifino shit/bullshit. Anyone involved with the C scam did not wait until now to start asking questions. this stinks, just like MANGO CARIFFINO.
