Looks like FCS II in some of the boards. Great! Hope it holds up. Ordered my last surfboard with it. Very nice for transport.

Hope we get specs of the boards soon. Particularly interested in the thumbtail with squared off nose. Good to see the Celeritas is still there.

2015 Wave kite based off of the 2012 Rally platform? Yes.

Release will be in calendar year 2015 and based primarily on the 2012 Rally which makes complete sense. There are a lot of riders who Love the 2012 Rally for wave riding and we're stoked to see Slingshot approving a wave kite for 2015.

WooHoo!!!!!

2015 Rally kites: - officially released to the market in July. Some dealers, myself included have demos ahead of the release.
We already have 3 - 2015 Rally demo kites (10m, 12m and 14m) and they are very similar to the 2014's. ...

Any design changes of note other than graphics?
Kite was already pretty dialed in, just wondering.

Does anyone have more sizing information or general descriptions of the new directional boards?
I saw this in the bay area kite forum;

Quote:
5-4 Screamer
5-6 Angry Swallow
5-6 & 5-8 Celeritas
5-0 Ankle Biter
4-8 Alien Twister

Pricing and photos by July 14th...if you cant wait, come on by our shop to see first hand the directional lineup......


Looks like at least 4 new shapes in there to play with. So, without the write-ups...here is my guess. I'm sure I'm wrong. Pictures if you follow the links...

* The 2015 Ankle Biter 5'0 looks like the 2014 SP WVS, but without the inserts. (which is cool. nice look)
* I'm not sure what the Alien Twister 4'8" is...looks just like the Ankle Biter but with a flat nose and fish tail. I suppose it has a different rocker/bottom shape.
* T-Rex looks the same with updated graphics.
* This board below must be the Screamer or Angry Swallow...it doesn't look Angry...it looks to me like it would eat up big wind and waves so I am guessing it is the Screamer. :)

Paintings of naked girls on surf boards is always a plus. :thumb: I like the way they did it. It's not in your face, but if you care enough to look closely at the board... "hello, hottie!"

It's my first time paying attention to the FCS II fin system. (there's a lot of info in this link) As long as the fins don't come out in a wreck (and it sounds like they've tested it) that is a pretty cool system. It would be really nice to easily try out fin combinations while your kite is in the air! Just pop off the rear fins or rearrange the T-Rex fins one handed w/o tools. Perfect for kiting. Sweet.

From this picture the bottom board looks like a Celeritas but with less nose area.
Maybe is the picture angle.................... :roll:
Anyone knows the dimensions and Volume of the 2015 Celeritas 5'6" and 5'8"?

The half and half graphic on these boards looks like somebody sawed apart and glued two different boards together.
The surf graphics were great last year and for three years before that, changing just for the sake of change is not always good.

I don't care too much about the graphics. When the board is waxed there won't be much left anyway. But I am very curious about the screamer, too. Would really like to know if it is a good complementary to the Celeritas. For higher winds and waves.

Hey, thanks for that info!
The Screamer is tiny indeed. I liked the Trex in 5´4 but found the 5´2 too small for my liking. But I thought about replacing my Celeritas at the time of testing. The big Screamer sounds quite similarly sized as the small Trex. Guess I have to give it a try once I hopefully get a chance to.
