Over the years at Best we have run a lot of competitions, but we've never had one that had the quality or diversity of entries that we received for the Nemesis NXG comp. There must be an awful lot of kiters out there who want a new kite really badly.
The standard of entrants this time was way higher than anything we've seen before and judging was tougher than ever. Several entrants stood out as being way above the rest in terms of content quality and sheer volume of entries posted; do you guys not have jobs to hold down?
We have collected all the entries from Kiteforum.com and the Best user forum and we have been through them all. Decisions were made on artistic quality, effort and creativity. In the end even though we said there would be two winners each getting a new Nemesis NXG we just couldn't separate the top three.
So in joint first place we have 3 entrants, for sheer creativity and determination to win a prize by posting more entries than just about anyone else all three of these guys stand out. Danilo, Arnone and MP, take a bow. You new Nemesis NXG kites with Twister Tech and external EZ-pump system will be on their way to you as soon as you get in touch.
We had to give one runner up prize as well. While millions of Jacko fans around the world were mourning the passing the off the old 'King of pop', Mark J was turning 'tragedy' to his own advantage, coming up with the tagline 'The new king of pop'. We liked that a lot...Mark get in touch and you can choose something from the Best goody bag.
Congratulations guys and thanks to everybody who took part.

Nemesis NXG:Tagline and Sticker competition.
It's competition time again... We wish it was blowing a solid 30 knots side shore every day, if we controlled the wind that's how it would be, sadly we don't. So to bring a little joy into your lives and as a warm up to the upcoming release of the new 2010 Nemesis NXG in August we thought it might be nice to run a competition.
It's all change this year for the Nemesis NXG, out goes the flat SLE plan shape and in comes a much more aggressive Freestyle orientated C-kite shape. We've kept Twister Tech and the aggressive canopy profiling so the Nemesis NXG is still going to be a handful for fully powered kite-loops. We've kept the huge depower and light bar feel so you can still session the Nemesis all day. Finally, we've traded a tiny bit of upwind ability and hangtime potential for much improved low wind and unhooked handling, making the Nemesis NXG the definitive Freestyle kite in the 2010 line up.
What do you win? Well that's obvious, there are two 2010 Nemesis NXG's complete with bars up for grabs.
How do you win? The competition is in two parts, Tagline and Sticker. All you need to do is come up with a snappy catchphrase for the 2010 Nemesis NXG, (NXG stands for next generation by the way so you might want to weave that in somewhere). Once you have your catchphrase get to work and create a sticker design that you could use on the back of your car, on your laptop case, on your work desk, on your board, wherever.
You can enter as many stickers and taglines as you like, the more times you enter the more chances you have to win. The competition will be hosted on the Best Forum and also on Kiteforum.com, click either link to view the competition threads.
As well as winning a new kite and bar we might even 'make you famous' by putting your winning sticker into production to be included with every 2010 Nemesis NXG.
Winning entries will be selected by a judge panel and all winners will be announced at the start of August.
