Hey Joe,

let us know more about the Jarvis from Slingshot.
How does it ride with the aditional 2 fins?
Did you ever take them off? You should to find out how they ride without to tell the difference. How is the quality and the weight of the board?

Thanx
Toby

I havn't actually got it in the mail yet, I am waiting anxiously

As soon as I do I will review in this thread.

I should have plenty of time to test, I quit my 45 hour a week job and start a new 20 hour a week one!! I am so happy, much more kite time coming up....

If anyone needs freelance Search Engine Optimization, or internet marketing, I am now available.

sounds great.
you know what I noticed?
many kitesurfers are taking more time for it. It looks like they don't want to have that much stress anymore and more time to spend on the water. Myself included :wink:

I haven't gotten the board yet, but I got some feedback yesterday about it from my buddy Hamish, who got sponsered recently by slingshot and has been riding the 147 jarvis model.

He absolutely loves it, says it has a really clean release when launching airs. He also said you need to ride it really powered up, he said he can go almost 90 degrees upwind with it.

nice bindings.
I tried these type of bindings once, but couldn't fit due to my large feet.
But soon I will try some and hopefully this time I will fit.
