  "The first day with this thing and I already scored !"
  "It has substantially improved my quality of life."
  "I congratulate you on what you're doing - it's really, really good."
  "This thing is awesome, it's really great."
  "It's fixed my life."
  "BuscaViento is really brilliant !  What an invention !"
  "They conscientiously provide all the services they promise, which is why I've really become 'hooked'."
  "When my friends wake up every morning, before looking at the alarm clock they check their BuscaViento pager !"
  "Congratulations on this great service, I know people who have it and they are really happy with it."
  "The service you've provided so far has been very satisfactory and has allowed me to sail more days and in better conditions, so I'm sending you my thanks and congratulations for the idea."
   

"ALL... and I mean all the days I sail are thanks to BuscaViento.  If I see it's windy, at 12:30 I leave work and get some sailing in until 15:00 when I come back in.  And if it gets windy on a Saturday 60km away, then I find an excuse and make myself scarce whenever possible... even if it's to sail for just 30 minutes, which, with the conditions we have in this region, is glory...  So, the BuscaViento pager is my salvation.  If I had to choose between BuscaViento and my cell phone, I'd give up my phone in a minute...  All in all, at first it might seem like the pager costs a lot of money, but then if you stop to think and remember that sailing day in Peñíscola or that other one in Trabucador you had thanks to the pager...  you can't buy that with money."

 

  "If after lunch in the summer you can spend the afternoon on the beach sunbathing, chatting with your friends, and having a beer with your equipment all ready, then you don't really need the pager, but if you have obligations and you can get away only if it's really windy, the pager is your solution.  I can't say anything but good things about this little device..."
  "I've had it from the start and it's been a luxury.  It's really nice and I think it's the best option."
  "What sucks about Riumar is that the forecasts don't help at all, so the only information available to not miss there I think is BuscaViento."
  "Impressive technical support - thanks !"
  "Thanks very much for your support - a solid 10 !"
  "Really like your service and the support/attitude of your good self. If you ever want a testimonial please ask."
  "Congratulations, the new version of the application is perfect.  The best part is the summary page."
  "I just updated to the new version.  I think it looks great.  Congratulations for the change."
  "Congratulations on the new version.  It's brilliant !"
  "It's been a fantastic tool for the nearly three years I've been a user and it's helped me enjoy some great sailing days and saved me loads on gas.  I also thank you for how friendly you've been when I've had problems with my phone or other things."
  "Your service is fantastic now."
  "Thanks to your system I'm sailing a lot, I mean really a lot !"
  "I'm delighted with your service.  I think now I'm not going to be able to live without it !!!!!"
  "You can no longer live without BuscaViento..."
  "Without your work, it wouldn't be possible to sail so much, heh, heh, heh.  What a day yesterday in Murtra !"
  "Ever since I've had it I can no longer live without it !"
  "I'm in the trial period with BuscaViento, we'll see how my phone bill turns out for Internet connections at the end of the month... but it works beautifully."
  "In Valencia you have the 4 essential spots.  Last weekend I was at the sensor in Saplaya and it was right on."
  "I use BuscaViento - and believe me, you'll spend all day pushing that damn button to watch the wind."
  "All my friends who have BuscaViento on their cell phones always end up sailing."
  "I've had it for over a year and it's really helped me a lot.  I no longer waste afternoons "waiting to see if it gets windy", nor make endless trips... it's really useful since it gives you information right from the beach, and if you use your own experience to interpret it, better yet."
  "I have it and it's awesome.  It's cheap and worth it - you avoid driving a lot of kilometers for nothing."
  "The BuscaViento pager, nicknamed the "tamagotchi-buscaviento", is awesome.  I've had it for 4 weeks and we've already confirmed that it's really reliable.  The biggest advantage I can see is the peace of mind... you don't have always to be watching to see if the trees, the neighbor's clothes, or the flag on the Palau is moving... so it also saves you stressing about whether it'll get windy or not, calling friends and when they don't answer you think they're sailing but it turns out they were just in the bathroom... wasted trips, and waiting on the beach.  You end up wasting less time, earning more "points" with your girlfriend, and surfing more because you don't miss."
  "Here in Catalonia absolutely everybody uses it.  People say it works great."
  "That bastard, he woke me up to tell me the wind readings from BuscaViento.  When I get to the beach he's gonna pay..."
  "It's 'Rafagas' who reports the information from the beach with a hand anemometer, apart from using BuscaViento."
  "Your service causes addiction !"
  "The service this invention of yours provides is brilliant - I'm really happy with it."
  "After a few days of using this I think the application is excellent."
  "What a great service BuscaViento is.  Thank you for the friendly service you've always given me."
  "Man, every time I call you I manage to fix something."
  "It's a good thing somebody knows how to get things done."
  "Congratulations again on BuscaViento - it's an indispensible tool !"
  "Thanks.  Great idea, by the way."
  "BuscaViento is now running on a Nexus One - Incredible customer service!"
  "I can't stop congratulating you - it's great !"
  "Thanks a lot !  You guys fucking rule !"
