The Team Yarga: Now Available for Sale!
Posted June 12th, 2009
You asked for it, so we're giving it to you: the all-black Team Yarga with two silver fish and nothing else ... not even sizes printed on the wingtips.
It's the exact same kite ridden and worshipped by our pro team ... a pure, unbridled, tried and tested c-kite. This is not a new design. There is nothing new about this kite at all. No new technology, no bells and whistles, nothing user-friendly about it. It's simply a no-nonsense c-kite for hard-core wakestyle riders, and it's quite simply the best C-kite we ever made.
There's no pump, no silly little patch repair kit, no stickers ... just a kite, in a simple lightweight nylon bag (sorry, we know you C-kiters have a lot of bags already, but we had to put the kite in something).
If you're a diehard, dedicated C-kite rider, you already know that this is the kite for you. On the other hand, if you have to ask if this kite is for you, it's not. Don't even think about it. Stick to your SLEs. And no, you can't demo it ... not unless you hunt down one of our team riders and ask them nicely if you can demo one of their kites. We're not interested in marketing this kite, so there aren't going to be any demos. We're only doing this for the very small section of the market that asked for it and already know what it is ... and they don't need to demo it.
At Best Kiteboarding, as much as we believe that the future of kite design is towards the SLE, we're committed to making as many riders as happy as we possibly can. So if that means giving a handful of hardcore C-kiters the kite that they want, we're more than happy to provide them with it. When our customers are happy, we're happy.
The new, all old, old-school Team Yarga. Badass like you've haven't seen in years.
Now, shut up and ride.
Team Yargas are available for preorder now, with an estimated delivery around 7/15.
What the team has to say:
Dave Drinkwater: "In 2009, I switched from the Team Yarga to the 09 Nemesis, because I got tired of telling everyone who asked where they could buy the kite, that they couldn't. But then Sam (Medysky) got a quiver, and it was hard seeing them every day. It was like having a new girlfriend, but having to work with your hotter, better ex-girlfriend every day and not be able to have her. Now that the Team Yarga is available to everyone, and people can buy it, I get to ride it again, so I'm really happy about that."
Joe Ruscito: "I've gotten so used to riding the 09 Nemis that when I go back to the Team Yarga, they beat the crap out of me. If I'm feeling tired, I'll ride the Nemesis, but when I want to go all out and really ride, I'm on the Team kite. I love that kite. I just couldn't ride it for so long ... since we weren't selling it, it couldn't be in any of Gavin's shoots, so I got out of practice. I'm really glad I get to ride it again, without having to be all stealth about it.
