Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Only having one 'new' kite in my quiver, until recently. 2016 15m Turbine. It opened up kiting for me. Giving me success both in water and on snow. My recent purchase of a 2018 17m Contra was supposed to be a bigger improvement. :roll: Not so fast! Turns slower, ok to be expected I quess, less pull...

Re: Fatality in France

The problem here is: 40 knots. That's insane. Feel sorry for the guys family. I do not want to encourage beginners or intermediates to go out in 40knots, but there is something that must be said for the above comment. The primary thing to make 40knots relatively safe is experience. Kiting in 35knot...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

my guess is one of the fired designers :lol: Just have to read all his/her/its other postings and you know everything. Don´t feed the troll I did do that (viewed past posts) and saw he has bashed other brands, with or without examples/evidence. To me, it seems to likely be a personality issue. Stil...

I don't intend to be cool. It is not personal info. Why not to know the heroes of kiteworld from Slingshot?
So could you tell us a little about your feelings toward Slingshot? Maybe discuss your experiences?

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Turbine 17m 2012 of the very 1st release was a brilliant kite...... .....2016 - 2018 got to be the worst. 2019 is of no change because they just don't know how to make it better. Two old farters Tony Logosz and Jeff Logosz who are chief designer and president and who are brothers fired all young mo...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

....Look at DUOTONE, I have seen posts for many months bashing their new name..... Great strategy to make sure everyone knows what is going on. ..Although everybody knows the old north is now DUOTONE, everybody who will hear or see North instantly has that connection to a kitebrand!... Nope, that w...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

.....I think there are many former Best distributors and shops who could go for North now. They have the logistics. But I think it all depends on how good the new products will be...but I don’t think they will be bad with the team they have. I am thinking they will have to distinguish the new North...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

....It seems that almost noone rides with sunglasses.... I think your sample size may be a bit low. I'll give it a go at doing a tally next year for some verification from Midwest to the Northwest US coast next year. Being honest, I would say that about 30% always wear sunglasses on the coast (cold...

........grassroot elements unique to kiteboarding

anyway, back to $2000 hydrofoils and $3000 foil kites, carry on...lets see if we can increase the average age of a kiteboarder up to 58yo
Yup, that is working out well for windsurfing!
