BEST..... what's happened? It's like no ones home. Also the New BEST ROCA any good?

Having flown BEST kites on land boards and buggies to Kitesurfing since 2007 I am at a cross roads to what is going on with Best in the UK.. It seams no kiteshop wants to deal with them.. no UK agent? No representation at any kite event.. is this just a UK thing or is BEST going the same way as othe...

Re: Best Kiteboarding and Best UK?????

It's a shame Best in the UK has been a mixed bag of recent years. I am a best rider ( by choice ) and I like their kit. But the spares issue of recent has made me start to look at other options and what's out there to buy instead. It's interesting others have had issues with kit as they say but I ha...

Re: What would happen if you didn't buy a new kite?

I've had 4 brand new kites and I have to say this year I will prob hold onto my kites another year. as the last few kites I've changed them at one year old and they have not been that much different. it is nice with new kites. I also have complete faith in the kit then. but before that I was just as...

Re: O'Neill - cr*p Drysuit Boost, Cr*p customer service

Typhoon again from me.. The only people who make decent dry suits and infact make them for the Navy Divers! I know I might just happen to have one :lol: But agree it's poor service really considering A) the competition out there is strong. B) people are very brand loyal when it comes to wet suits.. ...

Re: Epic Customer Service...... from Flexifoil!

Yes they swapped mine out to. It was separating like crazy I was glueing it and it would last about a month and split again. I contacted them as it wasn't on. Sent in photos and they changed it. New boards stronger I love my Hadlowboard :-) which is why it pained me to have issues but sorted now :-)
