Slingshot Guardian: Very few moving parts with cleat and thick bomb proof lines. Kept simple and easy to inspect.

Re: The State of Kiteboarding 2018 - Change Needed

No one beginning in the sport cares about governing bodies. But it seems like that's an important issue for the competitive athletes. But it for sure isn't driving the majority of the industry.
