Re: Check your slingshot comp stick ?

I have a really well used comp stick. just checked mine and yeah, the wire is bent a bit, but no sign of cracking or weakening.

Re: Can I use a 2010 Slingshot Fuel bar for older "C" kites?

Re: I moved to England to live

Jose...

best place to get a good combination of work and learn english would be London - but it's pretty far from any decent kitesurf spots. 40 - 60 to the coast
