Doesn't surprise me in the least.
Wayne (owner) has historically been a good guy and someone I considered a friend. BUT that all changed not long back when I was leaving for Africa and he promised something that never happened. Could have really been the root of a terrible issue, but thank goodness it turned out OK all on it's own...
I have to believe that he must be having a pretty rough time. His paddles are awesome and as I mentioned he is a good guy at heart. For him to totally blow off everyone that supported his product must mean that he is going through a bad stretch... But I have rarely been as pissed at anyone as I was with him.
