Justin is, and may ever be the nicest guy to ever hit the wake industry.
the guy had and still has sooo much temperance and composure it just oozes like a tasty cream filled pastry
unfortunately nice guys finish last, BUT fortunately, nice guys always finish with a good conscience.
LF will always have a bitter taste in my mouth by my own personal interpretation of things as well as personal experience. but i don't fail to remember and recognize the great things that LF has done and still does. AND one of the many great things to come from LF was Justin Stevens and his films!!
... unfortunately we wont get to see what would have been the film "Good Company" i think it was that was rumored to be in works back when ;(
Man there was so so much drama, page after page on the forums. And that drama will continue on and fester forever like radioactivity, even if but a small trace in the future.
I learned a lot of things about the industry and the politics of it all, some intriguing and some disturbing, but sadly at the expense of a great player, one that was unique and disconnected from the corrupt watersports kindgdom, but connected to the riders.
The ship that was Company may be sunk, but may the crew live on!
Slingshot avoided the ax not only by being a more matured company, but because they had something to offer in return... a patent on their kiteboard kite control arm or whatever it was. so SS exchanged kite tech for LF boot tech
yes Slingshot did make Company boards... or rather "moonshine manufacturing" http://www.alliancewake.com/wake/bt/...manufacturing/
(which IS slingshot) did
here is a nice little summary article of things that went down and includes a lot of stuff i personally learned about the industry due to the fiasco too
but as said earlier. there is pages and pages of stuff. just got to search through it and make your own decision on what is biased and what is fact and waht is.... blah blah blah
