Because, in my opinion, R16 slalom in a very good fin and they (Mrs. Oriana) offered me at a good price.

Problem is that from august I've not received fin yet (I've pre-paid it) and they (Mrs. Oriana) don't reply to my information requests...

This guys are out of business. I think they sold their molds to Remi to built fins under the Drake brand.
Why would you buy a fin from deboichet when not even antoine is using them anymore. Try vector fins specially the canefire and the volt.

Strange: Oriana herself on last 30th October (http://www.star-board.com/forum/show...26&postcount=9 ) said they are still on businness... So, who is right?

No, I haven't.

But as I've written in Free Forum on 30th October: ..."I hope to receive my pre-paid fin (R16 Slalom 50 cm) within a week from now that is, with a good margin for you, in the second week of November... if not, I'll be on this Forum again to tell bare facts (and to take necessary legal actions temporarily postponed)"...

I think the Starboard forum is not the right place to get the information you want, if you want to know more about what's going on with this brand, you should post in french on the windsurfing33 forum, there some guys will explain to you what the situation is.

Hi, Viking,

you are right, Starboard Forum (maybe) isn't best place to complain about products of other brands but:

  • I absolutely don't speak french;
  • a lot of people, globally, had purchased or booked Deboichet fins (also recently), so I think this question is of common interest;
  • many people, also Starboard team members, have or have had direct relations with Mr. J.J Deboichet and their help or an advice would be really appreciated;
  • regarding to the relevance of the question, I ask you or other french guys to be so kind to clarify how things really are, possibly in this Forum (read and understood globally).

Any help is really appreciated.

Thank you.
