Lasher Hey buddies
Are you aware that this Lirende guy made a perfect business here? His goodies may not be so good and their web page may not be anything close to be a web page, But, Now we all know about them !!!!
He somehow succeded to advertise here with great success ) Boss must be proud now ))

But, there is another possobility and perhaps a conspiracy theory: The Lirende guy who wrote the frirst post is not not-so-good in english but knows what he is doing exactly. He deliberately chooses to use a not-so-good expression, because he knows it will make business

Both ways, they win ))Look at the forum stats !!! Hits are probably more than the test reports of 2011 severne ....awesome )))

It is totally different to traditional sailing boat sails. Requires extensive testing and learning. And the market is small and not very profitable.

There must be easier ways to make a living, especially if not a windsurfer yourself.

I've heard about some very cheap kiteboarding sails from China brands, and I've seen also some cheap windsurf sails sold on ebay.de that I suppose coming from China, like a nocam 9,5 "Hawain Art" (not Hawaiian...). I don't know anything about quality.
I think you must accept that this is a free forum in our free world. So opinions even if strong are normal.
Also in Italy we had many problems about poor quality of China products, it seems that now China market is focused only on low prices no matter the quality; and in the past wasn't always so, let's think about famous chinese vases and porcelain, known as best quality products.
My friend from US tells me that success and money is the only religion of many chinese people he knows. Sure too much bad opinion, I think. But something even if not all it's true, products are not made only by prices and people working 12 hours for each day, but also from freedom of thinking, fantasy, culture in the background, see us in Italy. This seems the factors you have lost in China, pheraps because of loss of freedom.
Finally accept a joke from me, without being angry with me: would it be possible in the future to have from your chinese factory a windsurf sail with painted the image of the (glorious) tanker man in Tianammen?

Thank you for your objective assess about chinese products,I think everything has its except,the quality of our sail absolutely has no problem,now our company connect someone who are foreigers as our agent ,my company's aim is earn the reputation and trust form freign customers .I agree with you that most chinese products are low price ,but not all of them are in bad qulity.as you said you vistited our website, but you could only see a single page with no links to options, price lists, etc... Nothing about windsurf sails.I should say something about this,our company is sailmakers ,we will make windsurfing sail as cumtomer required,customer will give some statisitcs ,then we will make the sail.our company like UK-halsey ,but we did have a long history as UK.

Hey, you should get in touch with Agrelon, he's in Hong Kong I think.... He might even give you a go on his Futura 93...

All my love, Ben
thank you for your advice,I will try.
