Re: toeside 180 tack ... anyone got advice

I was quite comfortable with the maneuver already but have pain in one wrist at the moment. So I tried to reduce the pressure when leaning into it. So just before turning and leaning into it I rode downwind for some meters. And I couldn't believe that I didn't think of that months ago. It is so much...

Re: Slingshot Screamer / Swallow Sizing

I would recommend the 5.4 Swallow, too. The new Mixer is really fun, too. For me with 80kg the 5.6 would be big enough. But I am not sure if that is enough board for you.

Re: Slingshot Screamer / Swallow Sizing

What size and weight are you?

The Swallow is a good allrounder. The Screamer better suited for windier/choppier/bigger conditions. As a one board solution the Swallow is much more versatile.

Re: Best bankrupt?

Kites used to ship with bag and pump , bars with leash , but this all came with a cost now most brands give the option and ship kite and sock and if the customer wants the rest they can order seperately , I think it is a good thing ... Totally agree. A new bag with every new kite is a lot of unnece...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

Well, first off, as said, much of it is personal opinion and preferences. I have had the SST from 2016 in 6,8 and 10. Then the 2017 in 5,6,7 and 9. And now I am on the 2018 model with 5,6,7,8. I do about half/half surfboard and foilboard. Shifting to more surfboard again over the last half year or s...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I had 6,8 10 and 12 2016 sst kites. I sold them because of to much power when looping but the drifting is amazing ... That is a good example of how personal the experiences are. I like the looping with the SSTs a lot (I ride all sizes with the 20 inch bar and 20m lines). And only some days ago a fr...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

... switched onto an SS for testing both were 9m, on a strapless board: ... I am a big fan of the SSTs. But only up to 8m. The difference from 8 to 9m is quite big. Much bigger than from 7 to 8m. From 9m the SSTs seem so be tailored differently. A lot slower through the window, probably a little mo...
