Who is this retard? Jimmy Lewis is a fucking legend in Surfing, Windsurfing, and now Kiteboarding. I'm sure he could find another sport to fall back on if his kiteboards stopped selling.

every one seems to go bankrupt these days, how about the uk owing too much on personal debt or the 3rd world debt problem isnt that more interesting, or the fact the us spent 100 billion on the war in iraq but only gave 1 millon fo raids in africa....

i think its about time we stopped with all the company going bust rumours, its a dirty habit and only started recently, if you want to know which companies are doing well, ask them, stop damaging their reps on the web-boards, its a shit trick.

exactamundo...

is it true that attempting to spread malicious rumours is a nasty/bankrupt method of having a pop at people/companies.. and only the domain of the spineless ?

Toby... about time you acted on this old boy.. ie remove the baseless allegations/malicious comments

I don't think it is that negative.
It also can be advertising for the name, since otherwise it is not discussed about much.

After checking the IP it looks more like this.

We will see...

there does seem to have been a number of very similarly worded guest posts within the past couple of months.

often a negative post can lead to many guys backing the brand up, which is good for the brand but does smack a little of organised promoting, which is lame, if you want to big up something, big it up, be proud about what you like and support and stand by it.

but what concerns me more is the fact that the posts tend to be baseless and do not really leave an opening for nay sort of response. it seems much more like it could just be malicious spreading targettimng potentially weak brands or in this case a well known brand that has just made the jump to mass production.

i'm sure toby knows the answer, but if its that guy who made the handful of jimmy lewis posts the other week, talking them up hugely because he was the greek importer or something, then it's a bit lame.

i'm not knocking pimping, pimping is good, if you are honest and have something to say about a product.

it is curious.
Can be true can be advertising etc.

So I like to follow it to see what is happening...

I guess Sherlock Holmes would have loved stuff like this, but it is a bit unfair, since I have tools here which tell me quiet a bit more than the normal reader sees...
