Loving my Slingshot RPMs. I ride unhooked and strapless to and have found it to be the best ever.

Anyone tied slingshot Fuel 2009/2010 in surf. I ride waves unhooked and also looking for a good kite for that. Fuel 2006 model worked better for me in surf than the REV 2008 so please if anyone have experiance with the new Fuel in surf please post a review. Are the new Fuel more freestyle oriented than the old models?

GK Trix. It is super stable, floats back when you ride towards it.

Different strokes for different folks... :D
Not sure what style of wave riding you prefer. :coolshades:
I ride the Ovando on a fixed pulley bar with a depower strap above the pulley. :clap:
The kite surfs like a dream. :yumyum:
With a good kite & bar set up you can't go wrong. :thumb:
If you get a chance try one of these kites. You might like it. :cool2:

Aloha, Ride Safe, Have Fun. :hut:
