Re: Slingshot RPM vs Naish Park

I've had my 2011 9m RPM and a 2012 12m Park for a while now. Even after a year, I'm still in love with the 9m RPM, it's quick and fun, explosive to jump but smooth in the turn. I like switching between freestyle and wake settings depending on conditions. When I tried the 12m RPM, it felt unbearably ...

Re: New Board Delamination Issue - Question for kiters...

So I had a very similar looking delam - except mine was on 2010 Xenon Laluz, a year older and probably a hundred more brutal sessions WAY MORE ABUSED. When I first purchased this board a year ago - I was nervous considering the ultra-light weight construction. The shop I purchased from convinced me ...

Re: Naish 2012

Just had my first weekend on the 2012 naish 12m park - thought i'd do a review as it would have helped me before i made the investment. Sorry for the essay, trying to be thorough. Note that I have absolutely no affiliation or brand loyalty with Naish, it's actually the first Naish item I've owned. I...

Re: Problems with Slingshot Compstick bar

I've been happy with the durability of my 2011 compstick, I think all the metal components are a more appropriate grade then a 2010 airush smartbar (purchased in 2009), which suffered corrosion after 2 months. There is some wear on the clam-cleat, but no more than others of this style, comparing to ...

Re: Fake Kite Lines!?!

p_han, What's w/ the criticism on me here? It's not about being cheap. Can't speak for everyone, but Amazon is a well respected company here in the US. In fact, they've already given me a full refund for the lines, even though i didn't buy directly through them... Unfortunately they haven't pulled t...

Fake Kite Lines!?!

So I purchased some "q-power line" kite line from amazon.com... Turns out they're a complete fake!! Definitely not qline, and can't even pass for proper kite line. If someone who is inexperienced rigs their kite with this line, it will break and cause a seriously bad day. Tried contacting the "merch...

Re: Sore Heels?

I had this problem so bad that it kept me out of the water for a few weeks. I went to see a doctor and he called it "fat pad syndrome" (of the heel). After googling it, looks like it was a very good diagnosis. My solution was a 2010 Laluz, which has also been good for my bad knee. I'll have to give ...

Re: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado & Utah Snowkite trip

Began my trip yesterday! Stopped for a quick session on the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, gusty wind and snow storms and i had to weave in and out of fishing shanties, but still a good time. Today I rode on a small lake near my family's house just north of Traverse called Elk Lake, light wind, but my...

Re: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado & Utah Snowkite trip

Yeah what timing for the US Masters!! and I'll definetely be there riding at the Madtown event. I've met some of you in the summer, but stay local during the winter. For others reading this, I got an email from Bob at the Kite Ranch on Lake McConaughy and he told me it doesn't freeze over consistent...

Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado & Utah Snowkite trip

So I'm a snowkiter living in Milwaukee Wisconsin and long story short I'm throwing all of my posessions in the back of my Ford and moving to Ventura, California. Planned departure date is Feb 17th (after I get back from a few days at the Olympic games!). I'm writing this post asking for comments / c...
