Re: Wakeskate and foil

Looks very nice! I've always liked the DB skims. This would be great for travel and riding in shallow water without the foil. Does it still float even in freshwater? Reason I ask is I've seen one where mast filled with water and sank never to be seen again. I sealed my ZEEKO mast

Re: Wakeskate and foil

It's just 9 ply maple very stiff. You can brush some poly into the holes before inserting the nuts. Cheap pocket board for sure. There's another guy in my are athats all he rides with a foil. Might be a few weeks until I can try it.

Re: Wakeskate and foil

I just made one with a Liquid Force Obscura wakeskate and Zeeko foil. I'm really happy how it turned out. I did it exactly like this video and it's even the same board. One thing I did was after drilling the holes, I cut small quarter size holes out of the decking by twisting a pipe on the deck to c...

Re: Zeeko Blue and White Mast Compatability

Ah, hey thanks. That's what I was looking for. Guess I'll have to try to find a Zeeko mast

Re: Zeeko Blue and White Mast Compatability

Thanks for the replies. Yes the Zeeko mast has 3 holes but the fuselage has 2 which are 2 inches apart on center or about 50-50.8 mm. Does that line up?

Zeeko Blue and White Mast Compatability

IMG_20171112_102705.jpg
I've got the Zeeko white and blue foil on my Shinn El Stubbo and was wondering if anyone knows if the Zeeko mast is compatible with Slingshot mast? I was trying to find a short mast`like the 15 inch for shallow water and SS would be easier for me to get in the US.

Re: slingshot rpm vs switch nitro vs envy

The RPM is the best kite on the market Period. :jump: I guess that's just my opinion but it's a fantastic kite, simple design in the Compstick, the kite is a looping kite rather than a pivot turning kite which means it generates LOADS of power when you loop it, sign it, or transition. Doing a kitelo...

Re: 2010 Slingshot RPM Bar Pressure

Yes, i have it on the lightest setting now so turning is really quick and light, but i need to keep a steady pull in to keep powered. I usually end up putting a finger and thumb on the chicken loop rope to keep the bar from moving when I'm on a reach. The stopper ball is different from most older Sl...

2010 Slingshot RPM Bar Pressure

Hey, I just got a brand new Slingshot 2010 RPM 12 Meter this Spring and have been really enjoying the kite. I have heard that it has light bar pressure, and it does turn very quickly and generate a ton of power. However, my problem is that it feels like I need to be constantly pulling the bar toward...
