Go Slingshot, go! (and please produce a prettier fuselage finally)

Re: Feedback on 2015 Liquid Force Rocket Fish Foil (not board)

Re: Slingshot H4 Wing

On Slingshot's website there it is conspicuous in it's absence for kitefoiling. I have one for windfoiling ...

I used the Oceanus when I first started kiting. I found it super helpful when learning because it allowed me to focus on the kite. However I feel it also made me lazy around acquiring solid body dragging skills. I certainly had many violent wipeouts and never once even had a close call with the boa...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them
